The Ravenstone Lodge (not to be confused with the Ravenstone hotel across the road) was an exceptionally charming, friendly, and comfortable find in the Northern/central Lakes.
The location is perfect for touring/rambling while avoiding the extreme traffic in the southern Lake area. A wonderful and picture perfect setting. As Americans that have traveled extensively in the UK we felt very fortunate indeed to "discover" Ravenstone Lodge as a base for our recent four day visit to the Lake District. A completely authentic English house with great service and truly exceptional food. Breakfast, (included), leaves nothing to be desired in terms of quality or quantity. Dinner was an unexpected pleasure and competes nicely with the best in London in our view. We just did not expect a small hotel to have such a talented chef.
Service was very good and there was nothing Anthony or Karen could not do for us. As a result of fine food, wines and service it is a happy environment for guests and interaction with fellow travelers. Some rooms have been redone and others are in process by the owners, but all are comfortable and have the necessary requirements along with views. The best is this is GREAT VALUE for the experience and the money. Hard to find in England these days.
