Good Hotel Guide Review
Hugged by wooded grounds, a peaceful atmosphere, broad views and walks from the doorstep draw guests back to this comfortable Lakeland hotel. On inclement days, the lounge’s large picture windows provide immersive views over the Borrowdale valley without your moving a muscle. ‘Tranquil, well-appointed’ bedrooms make the most of the scenery; many have a balcony or patio access to the garden; all have a refreshment tray, bathrobes, a Digital Library of magazines and newspapers via a smartphone or tablet; modern bathrooms. A showcase for Cumbrian produce, ‘superb food for all including vegetarians’, is created by head chef Christopher Standhaven and team. ‘Breakfast was designed to sustain fell walkers through a long day.’
