Lovely old building set in its own grounds beside Lake Windermere. Rooms are very good and the food and service are excellent. Well situated for many Lakes attractions but providing a calming base. Sitting in the garden all you can hear are the birds singing.

We believe that the hotel is situated close enough to the bustling towns of Ambleside and Windermere, yet far away enough to sit in our beautiful grounds and...

Warm friendly welcome. Comfortable clean rooms. Good central location for exploring the Lake District. Efficient service. Option of bar meals (all day) or restaurant dining in the evening. We felt this was a little inflexible - 4 course meal for £35!
