    “Had a lovely stay”

    We found the Skiddow Grove a very clean and lovely place, Andrew and Diane were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble.
    The breakfast was excellent, the fact that they had a heated outside pool was a bonas, even without this we will definitely be staying their again when we are next up in Keswick.

    Excellent ????????????????
