Good Hotel Guide Review

Cumbrian comforts abound at this ‘well-kept’ Edwardian country house hotel, in three-acre grounds in a ‘beautiful setting’ in the Borrowdale valley. Laura Dadulak joins this year as manager. There are binoculars in the lounge, and a ‘pretty terrace’ to take in the valley and fell views. A roaring fire in the lounge keeps the chill away on cold days while, in fine weather, parasols on the terrace provide shade for a soothing cuppa after one of the ‘many lovely walks’. For stronger rejuvenation, Graphite, the oak and slate bar (‘very “boutique hotel”’), stocks local gins and ales, and has a topographical map of the surrounding landscape etched into its counter top, allowing you to plan your next day’s trek. In the newly refurbished restaurant, the modern British menu highlights produce grown, reared and foraged in Cumbria including vegetables from an on-site greenhouse. Chef Noel Breaks serves dishes such as Borrowdale venison and gnocchi, with rainbow chard, girolles, turnip; daily-changing ravioli. Bedrooms, individually styled and variously sized, have garden, lake or countryside views. ‘Our good-size room had a brand new bathroom.’ Breakfast has American pancakes, egg and soldiers. (ST)

Guest comments

'We enjoyed it very much. The setting is beautiful. There are many lovely walks nearby. The manager and staff are excellent - very friendly and very professional. Our room was a good size, with a brand new bathroom. The hotel in general was smart, clean and in a good state of repair. Some of the decor might be considered by some to be a litt fashioned. But, the bar has recently been renovated and is very "boutique hotel". A major delight was the food. The menu offered a good variety of choices; the dishes were innovative and delicious. The home made bread was very good too. And they did a very good breakfast. ' - Trevor & Sarah Beeton - September, 2016
