- What a beautiful, atmospheric and welcoming house! It isn't often that the accommodation is one of the highlights of the holiday, but it was in this case. Having a large table downstairs to spread out maps and papers, while keeping the upstairs drawing room uncluttered for a leisurely drink and chat while winding down after a day out was a real bonus. And discovering some old (and out-of-print) favourites among the books was an unexpected treat. Although the garden was not part of the property we could still enjoy looking at it out of the window, and enjoy the wildlife that visited it.
We did some low-level walks from the house on both sides of the lake, but also found some of the higher fells (Kentmere and Fairfield horseshoes) were easily accessible by car. Having a bath and plentiful hot water at the end of the day was very welcome on those days.
All in all, a great holiday in a memorable location.
