We stayed at Riverside for 4 nights at the end of September. What a find! The Hotel is in a beautful setting with the fells right behind and the river running by the the lane past the front door. Plenty of parking space.The bedroom was clean and had a fantastic 'super king size' bed and walk in shower.The owners are extemely welcoming & friendly ,happily drying wet gear and providing daily weather reports or advising on good walks or places of interest.
Breakfast is superb!! Loads of choice and all freshly prepared,including a different home made bread every day. Lots of nice touches.
Only 10 minute walk in to town with lots of restaurants and shops.
We are going back next year and would highly recommend the Hotel for a stay in the Lakes.
