Good Hotel Guide Review
In the Langdale valley, Mark and Ruth Jones’s country hotel is a family affair: daughter Aimee is the ‘charming’ manager; son Edward cooks ‘delicious’ modern European recipes in the restaurant. The 18th-century house stands in green grounds with ‘stunning views’ over Elter Water. Within, there is a ‘traditional country atmosphere’ from the ‘comfortable’ public rooms to the individually decorated bedrooms. Plenty of walks start from the front door – with the promise of tea and cake in the bar or garden when you return. 2 miles from Grasmere; the Langdale Pikes rise in the distance.
