Potential guests should be aware that this is a private rural Country House hotel, not a Hyatt or Sheraton Hotel, if you are looking for a modern building with 'clean fresh lines' serving a homogenised generic menu then Lancrigg may not be for you.
We stayed in July, and in our opinion the hotel is beautiful, set in glorious countryside, with plenty of well marked footpaths directly from the hotel itself. (There is also the most amazing arboretum as part of the gardens.) We booked onto the ground floor room, which gave us the opportunity to have a door opening straight into the wonderful gardens. The room has a lovely four poster bed, and is decorated in a traditional country style, the huge free-standing bath is wonderful after enjoying the walks. Yes, there is no broadband, and the television is not a flatscreen, but who comes to the Lakes and scenery like this to sit in the room and watch the television or surf the internet?
The most impressive thing about Lancrigg though has to be the food. It is delicious. From the three course breakfast, through to the best vegan dinner I have ever had, and the staff were lovely and very attentive. They even made a vegan birthday cake specially for my partner.
I've stayed in some wonderful hotels around the world, but for very few of them would I make a special journey to return to, but I will be going back to Lancrigg .
