    A very comfortable house, with a warm welcome and excellent breakfast. Also an outstandingly efficient drying room, which we really appreciated. Lots of homemade jams available for sale - shame we couldn’t carry any extra weight!

    Stopped over on 30/9/17 for one night, after a very wet walk at Haweswater. From the minute we arrived, the hosts were very accommodating and welcoming. This is a little gem for walkers. Drying room, great rooms with very comfortable beds, bar, packed lunches available,...More
