Stayed at this bed and breakfast establishment for 3 nights while on a walking break in the Lakes. The Rysdale was booked for our small group by our mountain challenge supplier, presumably because nothing else was available. What a bizarre place!
Our bedroom was literally on the fire escape route. Anyone escaping would have to come through the door, through the room, and out through another door onto the fire escape stairs attached to the outside of the building. But as the bedroom door is always locked its hard to see how anyone could escape. Very strange. And as for the view - all we could see was industrial fire escape stairs - a major disappointment considering we were in the Lake District!!!
As for breakfast, despite our requests, the owner would not attempt to provide anything cooked before 8.30am - so, like most other people there for walks or treks, we missed out.
We had no bath. Thankfully there was a shower but it was in a poky little space.
Please please please don't be taken in by the slick website - you may end up as disappointed as our group.
