Good Hotel Guide Review
With newly landscaped grounds, tastefully refreshed decor and ambitious cooking that’s ‘a class act’, Jamie and Jenna Shail’s Grade II listed manor house pleases, inside and out. (Canine companions give it two paws up, too.) Individually decorated bedrooms are supplied with bathrobes, a coffee machine and Fairtrade tea; some have a balcony with views to the fells beyond. Work was underway on eight new suites in a stylish garden annexe as the Guide went to press. Chef Daniel McGeorge’s menus in the fine-dining restaurant have excellent vegetarian options; the laid-back lounge has classic fare. Lakeside strolls and hilly hikes are within reach; guests also have complimentary use of a local health club.
