VisitEngland Three Star Country House Hotel
Good Hotel Guide Review
Families are ‘warmly welcomed’ at this early Victorian country house, ‘ideally positioned’ for exploring the Catbells and Borrowdale valley. The hotel is owned by the Fernandez and Lake families. Gaze at ‘glorious views’ of the Lakeland fells from the ‘well-equipped’ bedrooms, or step into the ‘stunning scenery’ via good walking and cycling routes from the door. Return to relax in the lounge, where a toasty fire is lit when the weather turns cool; in balmy weather, an icy drink in the garden is just the ticket. ‘Excellent’ British dishes are served in the elegant dining room; the chef will whip up ‘whatever the children fancy’, depending on the ingredients at hand. Save room for the ‘fine desserts’. No buffet at breakfast, but ‘plenty of choice’. 2 miles N of Keswick.
