We have just returned from 1 nights stay at this hotel. Staying here so we could go to a wedding at another location in the Lake District. On first entering the Hotel we received a very warm and friendly welcome. The family room was clean, comfortable. not over spacious, which was just right for our needs. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Breakfast was a buffet style to begin with ( cereal, fruit,and pastries) and then your choice from a traditional full English menu. Not managing to see all the grounds ( what I did see looked beautiful. ) Would I stay here again ? YES.
