I had good time at scarthwaite country house and hotel. Staff was friendly, food was good. The only thing that let it down for me was that I booked a double room and went to check in and found that they gave the room to someone else. The only room that was left was a twin room which was a... More

This beautifully situated grand country house truly exceeded our expectations! It boasts a beautiful outdoor space along a bend on the river and an ample indoor lounge and dining room. Our triple room was large, comfortable and bright for the three of us (my college daughter accompanied us). So check this out---I had some laundry left over from our last... More

Michael and all the staff were wonderful. The room was clean, nicely decorated and the beds were comfy. The bubble bath was a plus for our toddler. I recommend the Cedar room. Breakfast was also tasty.

Nice welcome and food was very good. The bedroom was a little tired but the helpful staff made up for it. We would use again. It is in a nice location and with more time we would have explored some of the locality that appeared a really nice area.

We were visiting Lancaster at the weekend and were very happy to have stayed at Scarthwaite. The staff were lovely especially James who helped us with some top tips for navigating the notoriously crazy one-way system on our way to a concert in the town. The hotel was only a few minutes from the centre but in a peaceful location.... More

We were staying on the Crook O'Lune holiday park and ate here as it is closeby. The food was traditional but very well presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were attentive without being overbearing and could not do enough to make our visit enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit.

I was checked in by James who was really helpful. He gave me a guided tour and some handy tips on getting to the other side of Lancaster via the country lanes. I was in the River room which is old fashioned but huge, clean, warm and has a comfortable bed. The bathroom was a little dated but it's a... More

Had a great stay there during our Lands End to John O'Groats journey. The staff were more than accommodating as we stayed in the family room and they even managed to squeeze another bed in when we had a friend join us for the day. Upon his return they offered him a room to shower & change, made him tea... More
