We stayed in Groom's cottage - a one bedroom self-catering apartment in the grounds of Heaves Hotel. The hotel is an old country house dating from the early 1800's and is set in attractive grounds. What is probably the old stable block has been converted into a number of self-catering apartments. Groom's cottage has a living/dining room and kitchen on the ground floor and a good sized double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
Heave's Hotel is in an convenient location for exploring the Southern Lakes - just 4 miles south-west of Kendal, it is easy to get to being only a few minutes drive off the M6 and just off one of the main A roads that takes you towards Windermere and the other lakes. It is virtually next door to Sizergh Castle, a National Trust property.
The staff were always very helpful and pleasant in meeting any needs.
