We were looking for something a bit special to celebrate a significant anniversary this week and this delightful place ticked all the boxes. The house was so typical of the lakes and the views were amazing. The rooms were tastefully decorated and had all amenities you needed for a perfect break including free wifi, ensuite, tea and coffee, along with special touches of home made chocolates and biscuits. We were greeted by Patsy and Mike the proprietors on arrival and served home made cakes and tea they were genuinely interested in us and our plans for our break and offered advice on the area where to eat and how to make the most of our stay avoiding some of the madness the popularity of the lakes creates. Food was amazing, cooked to perfection and mostly locally sourced , Mike too had funny anecdotes and tales whilst serving us all at breakfast. We had a fabulous break and have come home truly relaxed and would recommend this charming country house and it's wonderful surroundings and hope to return again soon.
