“Atmosphere is relaxing, welcoming & warm”

It was our second stay at this lovely hotel. We returned once again because of the lovely ambience of the environment. Kath and her staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food is exceptional and I defy anyone not to enjoy it! We felt our weekend break was exceptional value for money and would recommend it to anyone if they are looking for somewhere peaceful and enjoyable to stay. The pleasant stay was enhanced by the 5 minute walk into the enchanting Whinlatter Forest.
