We had got a 'hawk walk' gift at a nearby 'zoo' called Trotters animal world, and decided to have a few days nearby. Plenty of parking, we went for a superior double which was very large (room 6), there was a bar and restaurant on site. This may be important for those who do not want to drive to anywhere. The bar was very cute and was a converted hay loft. It's on a main road, but it's quiet,
The managers are very pleasant and spend time chatting.. either at breakfast or in the bar.
Breakfast had quite a large choice.... including kippers and eggs benedict. You could also choose a 'walkers breakfast' or 'light'.
Dodds wood was behind the hotel where a few people had hiked. There is a nice patio area with nice views (but not in the rain)
The osprey viewing point is one minute away, Keswick just five minutes.
The owners are still making improvements to the hotel... the dining room was really nice... i hope they keep it up
