    “excellent and comfortable”

    Routen House is in a beautiful location with views over Lake Ennerdale (10 minutes walk via a track), The garden has several different bits including a meadow left to nature and a stream. The house is very comfortable indeed. When we booked I was a little worried because it seemed cheap for the location and size, so I wondered if anything was wrong. In fact there's nothing missing, though it could be "done up" a little more to get the top luxury price tag. We had a great time, plenty to do around the area and a lovely base to come back to
