Good Hotel Guide Review
In a ‘stunning’ Lake District location overlooking Esthwaite Water, Richard Lee’s ‘admirable’ country hotel is liked for its ‘comfortable bedrooms’, ‘first-class food’, ‘fabulous views’ and all-round ‘lovely ambience’. It was once the holiday home of Beatrix Potter, who checked printer’s proofs for her nascent Tale of Peter Rabbit during her stay; guests today may expect a more restful sojourn. Settle in to one of the traditional, country-style bedrooms before taking a sunset pre-dinner stroll by the lake; in winter months, hole up with a book by the window in one of the fire-warmed lounges. ‘Staying in for dinner is a winning decision.’ Served on white table linen, the host’s ‘superb’ daily-changing, three-course menu focuses on produce from local suppliers, perhaps pan-fried noisettes of local lamb, wine jus. ‘Every course was beautifully presented; the flavours were wonderful.’ Rise to home-baked bread, local sausages and bacon, and a varied buffet at an ‘excellent’ breakfast. ‘There was even a small jug of whisky next to the porridge – and appreciative noises from those who tried it.’ (Jenny and Ian Sherman, KS, Allan Campbell)
