We are planning a trip to the Lake district in mid-late september and would like advise on hotels. We would like a relaxing stay with nice views (from our actual hotel room; so frequently its' unclear whose room got the view shown in the internet photos!) and good restaurant food.
Would the Merewood country house hotel fit this description? Also does anybody know about the McDonald Old England House Hotel? It looked interesting but when we tried to call the phone # we get a "phone is no longer in service" message.
