Good Hotel Guide Review
The views stretch over lakeland countryside from this unpretentious 18th-century inn, atop a hill in a pretty village between Lake Windermere and Hawkshead. Past the gabled entrance, fuss-free hospitality’s the draw here: it’s a dog- and family-friendly spot where, the owners say, ‘muddy boots are welcome’. Garlands of hops and old photographs decorate the convivial, wood burner-warmed bar and dining room, where local ales and hearty pub fare are served; in former stables, sofas, games and a log-burning stove create a cosy retreat. Most of the modern, simply styled bedrooms are in an annexe attached to the main building; family rooms have a screened-off area for children. Hiking and cycling trails abound.
