Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A true gem in the Lake District.’ Readers this year had a ‘thoroughly enjoyable’ stay at Caroline and Jonathan Kaye’s ‘fabulous’ small hotel. ‘Without being intrusive, the owners made us feel welcome.’ The ‘exceptional and quiet’ bedrooms have ‘lovely touches, from REN toiletries and fine bedlinen to thick robes and chocolates’. Each is individually decorated (some are snug), one has a hand-crafted canopy bed, others fine, ecclesiastical windows overlooking the Himalayan Deodar cedar that lends its name. ‘Our small bathroom was well organised, with reasonable storage space, a decent bath, an effective heated towel rail.’ Afternoon tea is a speciality. And in the evening, there are platters: local cheeses, charcuterie, home made soup, potted shrimps, and several other bits and pieces. Come morning, a hearty Cumbrian grill, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, toast with home-made marmalade, hit the spot. ‘We would happily stay here again.’ (Peter Anderson, Margaret Daniel, D Berrington)
