Good Hotel Guide Review
In landscaped grounds, Jamie and Jenna Shail’s Grade II listed manor house pleases, inside and out. Individually decorated bedrooms, ‘new and plush, but reflecting the ambience of this period property’, are supplied with bathrobes, a coffee machine, Fairtrade tea and a flask of cold milk; some have a balcony with views over the garden to the fells beyond. Chef Daniel McGeorge’s ambitious menus in the fine-dining restaurant have excellent vegetarian options; the laid-back lounge has classic fare. ‘Meals were superb, and the service courteous and efficient.’ Lakeside strolls and hilly hikes are nearby; plus complimentary use of a local health club. The needs of canine companions are well met too.
