Indeed nice food, comfy bed, clean with delicious breakfast and completely deserviing of their high ratings. Here's our but......we felt the owner should have pointed out at the time of booking or made it clear on his website that if one is a large person then room 4 is not for you. It's shower cubicle is TINY! I was able to squeeze my size 16 body into the tiny space but my stout husband had great difficulty. Hence we only had one shower during our three night stay. Fortunately the weather was not too hot and there was just enough space to have an all over wash. The toilet space was extremely limited too. We asked Rowan the owner if he'd ever had a shower in our room, he said no and pointed out that the room was having an ongoing refurbishment which would in time include a bigger shower! Not our problem Rowan. For £229.50 for our three night stay we would expect a higher standard of bathroom.
We also found that breakfast being served from 8am to 9am was a very narrow window considering that we were on holiday. We were told in no uncertain terms that if we arrived one minute late the kitchen would be closed!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Link House is a late Victorian Country Guest House, situated on the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake, near the Cumbrian towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, with stunning views of both forests and fells. Traditionally built in the late Victorian age, this country house enjoys stunning views of the forest and surrounding fells including the 3046 feet Skiddaw. The sunny aspect gives a warm and comfortable atmosphere in which to relax and feel at home. We are situated almost half-way between the towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth and the oldest town in Cumbria, just off the A66 at the northern tip of Bassenthwaite Lake. Link House is easy to find. In the quieter part of the Lake District National Park, yet with access to many interesting places to visit such as the Whinlatter Visitor Centre where the Ospreys who nest nearby each year, can be viewed. A peaceful location for the serious walker or for touring by car: everyone claims that — but here it’s true! ... more less
