We stayed here for an overnight break having decided to break our long car journey , we are so glad we did ! Arrived just in time to order dinner and were made very welcome indeed .
What an amazing meal , every morsel was a delight and a feast for the eyes , we could not fault a thing from the home made bread and butter to the exceptional desserts!
After dinner we sat by the wood burner and played board games before retiring to our cosy and well appointed room .
Breakfast was excellent too and served in the lovely room overlooking the garden .
Warm welcome , friendly team , excellent facilities, great chef and owners in Mark and Anne who really engage with their guests and are clearly rightly proud of their wonderful Bar ,Bistro and B&B .
We will return ......hopefully sooner rather than later !

Ideal setting for visitors to Ullswater, Glenridding and Helvellyn. Only about 10 minutes from M6/A66. It is at eastern end of the Lake which is only five minutes walk from the hotel. the steamers are a bout 8 minutes walk.

Hotel is well appointed with small but well presented rooms. Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom with super accessories. Great TV and wi-fi.

Service is very pleasant and helpful. Small bar area is very homely. We ate here for an evening meal. whilst pricy and a bit 'nouvelle cuisine' it was superb food with a very knowledgeable chef. Can certainly recommend the home made butter with warm bread before the meal and the home made ice cream for dessert. The halibut and guinea fowl we had for mains was lovely. Breakfast had good choice and really well served. only minor complaint here is that the tables are very close together for this time of day!!

Small but good choices of well kept local beer complemented everything the hotel. presented.

Room Tip: Our room was small so if large room needed maybe best to check first
