- The beds are really poor here, very thin mattresses across all beds (2 x double 2 x twin). The place is tired, most things hanging on by a thread or poorly stuck together. The water isnt hot from either shower and not enough for a bath, but you will scold yourself on the tap water. I did contact the owner and it seemed a little warmer the next day but not enough to enjoy a hot shower after a walk.
Various bulbs were not available and this was reported but not sorted in our time. The place is cheap.
It is not ideal for dogs, right on the main road - just to be aware if you are taking dogs with you they need to be on lead at all times out of the house.
Plenty of warmth from the heating though and the pub across the way offers good standard pub grub. Ideal for doing blencathra.
