My friend and I did not have a reservation and did a cold call to see if a room was available. There was a twin room available and the female staff member on reception showed us the room late in the day and we decided to take it. The stay was FANTASTIC! The rooms are very decorative, comfortable and just... More

Having read all the rave reviews from your columns, we were looking forward to our trip to the Lakes from the Highlands and were journeying to Bath.

These guests phoned and emailed me lots of times before arrival, so I was very surprised that they didn't want to talk when they were here. My offer of a free welcome drink was refused, and they said they didn't need any help with their plans. The next morning they packed the car before breakfast and the lady left straight... More

A fantastic period building (apparently once owned by Wordsworth) with a cosy fire in the living room, great food and wine, lovely and knowledgeable hosts, and lots of history. And that is before mentioning the spectacular scenery on the doorstep. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!
