Stayed for one night over the August bank holiday weekend. Received a warm reception upon arrival and shown to our fabulous room. We stayed in room 6 which is very elegant in décor, spacious and has a stunning modern en-suite bathroom. There are 2 large velux windows built into the eaves which provide pleasant views and allow plenty of natural light into the room (have night blinds attached so you can enjoy a good night's sleep). In the far corner of the room is a lounge area with sofa and TV which made the room feel very homely and made even better as the TV has Netflix! Attention to detail is obviously something the owners pride themselves on here and it really does make all the difference.
We got a great night's sleep and the bed is probably the comfiest to date I have ever slept on!
The bar/lounge/dining area are lovely too and breakfast was spot on. Great choice of fruit, cereals, juices, pastries and also your choice of cooked breakfast from their menu. Service was great and so was the food.
We loved our stay at 1863, at first we thought that the room price was a little on the high side (room 6 is the most expensive) but when we arrived it became very clear why and we are so glad we paid a little over budget for what we received.
The property is in the heart of Pooley Bridge but a little away from the hustle and bustle of the centre (literally 2 min walk) which makes all the difference. A parking space was available throughout our stay.
Should we visit Pooley Bridge again then we will undoubtedly stay at 1863! Spot on!
