Check in not available 'til 15;00. not a problem. . . walked round Buttermere, beautiful but be prepared to get wet feet as you go through the" cave". Then sat outside and had a drink. We booked at very short notice and the hotel was full so we had the smallest room. However, it was well appointed and tastefully decorated....

Stayed in a beautiful, spacious room with a balcony. Staff were friendly and the food was excellent. We took our young collie dog, Daisy, who was welcomed as much as we were. The "Daisy" welcome pack with doggie treats on arrival was a nice little touch. Despite the wine being rather expensive we shall return soon!

The Bridge Hotel is one of the Lake District's many gems, located in the little village of Buttermere and just a stone's throw from the lake of the same name. We had a fantastic long weekend there, we were very well looked after and they accommodated our late arrival on the Friday night without any problem. Our four poster room...
