It was immaculately clean and the towels in the bathroom were nice and large.It was also very quiet so we were able to...

Booking was straight forward, rooms were spacious and tasteful and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was good parking as others have said is tight but not a problem. We had very little contact with the staff but when we did they were professional and friendly Not a hotel for people with walking difficulties

Travelling as a party of two couples, we had a very comfortable two night stay at Lake House. Our room was very clean and tastefully furnished. The bed was gloriously comfortable- perfect for a good night's sleep after a day's walking. The bathroom was clean with lovely large fluffy towels. However, our bathroom did not have a window and the...

Room 10 was lovely, right at the top of the house with the window in the apex overlooking the lake, and a four poster bed. Staff were great and the breakfast very high quality local food. Seemed to have a real "can do" quality about it - such as a great bottle of wine (nearly at cost price) available as...
