Heather and Craig were both very welcoming, and we had a lovely few days at West View. It's in a great location, only a few minutes walk from Derwent Water and has views over the hills. The room was clean and tastefully decorated, the breakfasts were fabulous (so much choice!) and it was nice to have the use of the...

The new owners seem like very nice people and I wish them well. However, after a day's walk, our room was just too cramped to be comfortable. Fortunately, there was a lounge right next door which helped. However, we had difficulty finding places to put our suitcases in the room. I would suggest inquiring about the size of the room...

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you did not like your room. Unfortunately you booked through an agent who always choose our smaller doubles, but as you noticed we do have a variety of room sizes at different price points. Our website has detailed descriptions of the rooms and plenty of photographs, I’d always recommend booking direct...

Our room was spacious, with a fabulous view of the fells to the west. While the building structure is over 100 years old, it seems freshly renovated, well-maintained and very clean. Room furnishings were very recent vintage and quite comfy (though the mattress was a bit soft for our tastes). The hostess was very friendly and helpful. Very convenient to...
