We stayed for one night after finding the Country House on the Classic Hotels List. We enjoyed every thing about the visit and will certainly return. The location is good and the small number of rooms make it feel very homely. The staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed the afternoon tea served in the small Lounge as was Dinner later on. The food was excellent as was the small selection of wine and other beverages. The room we were given was on the second floor and was nice and quiet, but would not be easy to get to if you have a problem with stairs. There is no lift. There was free wifi throughout the Hotel and the phone reception was good considering the rural location of the Hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms should be free from any traffic noise, but avoid the second floor if you have any prob...

Stayed one night to break a long journey. The house is in a lovely, peaceful location. I had a large room on the top floor with a beautiful view. The bed was very comfortable and I had an excellent night's sleep. The lounge menu is limited as others have said but there is something for everyone and the chicken I had was very tasty and my table had a view to Blencathra and Clough Head so no complaints whatsoever. The full Cumbrian breakfast was excellent. Overall, this is a very comfortable place to stay with friendly staff, good food and peaceful surroundings.

I stayed here just one night, but looking forward to returning
The approach is very welcoming with an impressive entrance with a quick and friendly reception I was soon shown my room.
The room was nicely laid out, good bathroom and nice towels with suitable soaps etc, extra pillows were available and the bed provided a good nights sleep. The only quirk was the tv was only analogue reception which was ok, but not digital.
I had an evening meal in the welcoming bar area, good menu selection without providing too many options and a couple of specials. The garlic mushrooms were lovely although watch out for the spicy beef wraps, boy were they spicy. But, saying the local strawberry ice cream was perfect and very soothing, plus tasty.
Breakfast was quick, tasty and set me up for the start of the day.
Will I return, definitely and many thanks.

We had our wedding here a few weeks ago. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish and we couldn't have wished for anything better. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They went out of their way to make our time and everybody else's a real treat. Many of our wedding guests commented on how great the food was and how lovely the hotel looked. Our rooms were very clean and tidy, and looked and smelled fresh when you walked in. As we had our wedding a few weeks ago, the staff made a special effort to put up the Christmas decorations just in time for our day. It looked gorgeous. Thank you Roundthorn!

Room Tip: The top room has its own kitchen, ideal for a family.
