Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Perfectly positioned’ on Whinlatter Pass, and with ‘stunning views’ towards Skiddaw from the curving conservatory restaurant, Kath and Liam Berney’s restaurant-with-rooms is surrounded by England’s only true mountain forest. Rich Collingwood is the new chef, but the kitchen’s principles haven’t changed: the daily menus, particularly the Cumbria-themed tasting menus, are based on seasonal produce from sea, shore, woodland, fell and farm. Among the modern dishes: asparagus, morels, wild garlic, quail’s egg; Herdwick hogget, purple sprouting broccoli, merguez. Five cosy bedrooms in the oldest part of the house are small, ‘but then, this is a cottage-style 17th-century coaching inn’. Guests wanting more space to stretch out could book one of the larger mountain-view rooms, which have a whirlpool bath and separate shower in the bathroom, or the garden room, spacious enough for a seating area with a leather sofa. Wake to birdsong, then breakfast on award-winning Waberthwaite sausages, Craster kippers or a free-range-egg omelette with forest mushrooms. The market town of Keswick, on Derwentwater, is a short, scenic drive away. (Richard Osborne, ST, and others)
