Good Hotel Guide Review

Homely character, tumbling views and relaxed efficiency – the key elements of Sue and Peter Robinson’s Arts and Crafts house. The ‘sympathetically restored’ Lakeland stone property, built in 1904, overlooks walkers’ paradise Brathay valley. A nod to its architect, Francis Whitwell, in the decor: architectural drawings, photographs and paintings. Varying in size, the individually styled bedrooms are a well-chosen mishmash of antiques and contemporary pieces, although guests report that housekeeping could sharpen its act. Breakfast (‘good cafetiere coffee; good black pudding’), served in the original dining room, has a 20-mile-radius farm-to-plate ethos, and a ‘reasonable buffet’.
