This was supposed to be a lovely birthday treat from my girlfriend and turned out to be by far one of the worst experiences of our lives and we didn't even stay the night. My girlfriend and I were denied access by what could only be termed as a very rude and cold host. On our arrival we were greeted with incivility and generally a disgusting attitude. We apologised for the lateness of our arrival several times (30 minutes-20:30, roadworks being the factor). This woman asked us indirectly many times to leave at a late hour and 3 hours from home, even when showing us the room. She told us that we had ruined her plans to go out and that she has a life. We had not specified exactly the time of our arrival (we sent her 2 e-mails with approximate arrival times, to which she replied that she does not sit at the computer all day), nor were we told that she had plans. We did not want to be treated this way any longer and so left to find a place to stay in Keswick with no notice. This situation was very distressing and made only worse by having the police called on us (who were very nice and empathetic towards us) for being wrongly accused of an apparent assault. This was beyond terrible.
