We spent three nights here and really enjoyed it. The location is peaceful and quiet, five minutes' drive from Hawkshead or a half hour amble (in our case) over the fields. We had a lovely view of the surrounding countryside from our room. Patsy and Mike are welcoming and genial hosts who go the extra mile to make your stay a pleasant one. There is free parking; the hotel is clean with nicely furnished rooms; the breakfasts are delicious. We really appreciated the attention to small details - tea and home made cakes on arrival, fresh milk available for cups of tea and a home made chocolate in your room every day! What more could you want? We would recommend the Summer Hill Country House without reservation.
