I read a lot of reviews before booking an Amazon deal for two nights at The Fat Lamb. The good reviews significantly outweighed the bad, however the bad were stinkers. Having returned from my short break, with husband and dog, I have to say the bad reviewers must be exceptionally picky. The Fat Lamb is a 16th century inn set...

Delightful stay while passing thorough from Newcastle to Liverpool. Great for the soul. Easy to find and park, great views, nice walking trails and friendly staff. WiFi didn't work too well, but I think I was the only one bothered...

Two night stay in a comfortable front room over looking the car park, very quiet and surrounded by fields, the Inn reminded me of 'Emmerdale' with all the countryside around you.

A warm welcome, comfortable room and great bar food and breakfast. The location is excellent for a range of outdoor activities with lovely walks, horse riding and a nature reserve almost on the doorstep.

The hotel is quite remote but set in beautiful surroundings. The interior is full of old world charm in keeping with the age and character of the building. Entrance to the hotel was a little awkward for my husband in his wheelchair but was do-able and help was offered. The owners were very helpful with our luggage. We stayed in...
