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)

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
