stayed there a great many times, during all seasons. we personally like Autumn time to stay, but each season brings its own positives. the estate is luxurious, although we have stayed and there have been problems with the facilities (sauna not working, swimming pool closed, dining room refurbished, etc), however the management do try to work quickly to correct this.
the area itself is a place of natural beauty. walking the area is a must, although a car is fairly essential, but not a necessity. there are quite a few places to eat on the estate including Purdeys Restaurant, a must for at least one evening meal. although there is a public house nearby, it is estate owned and so we don't feel there is a great deal of choice or price difference locally anymore. we tend to also go into Ambleside to try the local ale and food there. the estate has grown since we first went, some 20 years ago, and there have not been many changes, which is a good thing. the hotel rooms are very elegantlt themed and some have four poster beds, etc. we have stayed there several times but also like staying in the timeshare lodges. the only down side is that although a very rural country retreat, which lends itself to walking holidays, dogs are not welcome on the entrire estate.
