Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We will never tire of the stunning location, lovely rooms, superb food and excellent hospitality.’ Praise in 2018 from readers for Richard Lee’s Georgian country house overlooking Esthwaite Water. Others agree: ‘A cosy hotel, fabulous views, friendly and helpful staff.’ Beatrix Potter stayed three times on family holidays, when the house was called Lakefield; she bought her farmhouse close by, and thought Near Sawrey ‘as nearly perfect a little place as I have ever lived in’. The lounges have the welcoming feel of a private home. The dining room and several bedrooms have views across the lake. Mr Lee’s daily-changing menus include such dishes as roast duckling with thyme, ginger and honey sauce; grilled plaice, lemon, nut-brown butter. His ‘dry sense of humour’ amuses. ‘When I complimented him on the sabayon sauce over ice cream and soft fruit, he murmured, “I just like the idea of hot custard over ice cream.”’ Breakfast includes home-baked pastries, freshly squeezed juices, local sausages. Fans will be sad to learn that the place is up for sale. Any buyer has ‘a hard act to follow’. (Jenny and Ian Sherman, Alan and Nicky Brooks, AC)

Guest comments

'We had a wonderful stay in this very fine traditional English hotel. The ambience is exceptional, reflecting we felt the proprietor Richard Lee’s personal, multi-talented and professional approach, greatly assisted by a small but tremendously effective local team. Excellent, extensive breakfasts and fine dinners, exceptionally fresh and good, supported by a small but well -hosen list of wines. Our room was very comfortable Pluses included: home made marmalade; no background muzak; an almost club-like atmosphere at dinner with guests interacting in polite. stimulating, sometimes lengthy conversations. ' - Stephen & Pauline Glover - July, 2018
'Fab views, cosy hotel, excellent food, friendly, helpful staff, and for us birdlovers the only hotel ever in the lakes with birdfeeders, and across the fields to the lake a cafe with webcam of the osprey nest,, and rowing boats to hire. ' - Alan and Nicky Brooks - June, 2018
'Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th stays at Ees Wyke were as good as our 1st, reviewed a year ago. We will never tire of the stunning location, lovely rooms, superb food and excellent hospitality from host Richard and his support team Corolla and Caroline. ' - Jenny and Ian Sherman - March, 2018
