Staff were very friendly when arrived, and my breakfast was left on reception with a nice handwritten note...

We stayed here sadly, just for one night on our way up to Scotland. We had a friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner and breakfast were both very good. Our room was beautiful-an unexpected treat to be in a four poster. I couldn't fault this lovely and reasonably priced hotel. Thank you for your hospitality.

We stayed in this lovely hotel for one night before continuing our journey to Scotland. A short distance from the M6 motorway we arrived to find a country hotel with beautiful grounds and uninterrupted views over the Cumbrian landscape.
