Ok, so firstly, ignore anything negative that any of the previous reviewers have had to say about the Coach House Suite, it has been entirely renovated, and is in a word, SUBLIME. It was the perfect temperature, and completely silent (not to mention lavishly decorated and fitted with all the mod cons)!
I booked a two night stay in the Coach House Suite as I was planning to propose to my girlfriend on our weekend away. I was expecting an enjoyable experience, and we definitely got one!
On our arrival (which was late in anyone's book) the welcome we got made us feel right at home straight away. This was topped off by the fact that on exploring the suite, we found a personal postcard along with some local nibbles, chocolates and fantastic damson gin for two!
The suite is fantastic, completely separate from the main hotel (which itself is lovely, but its nice to have some privacy sometimes!) and set over two floors, Jon and Caroline have thought of everything. The jacuzzi bath was very relaxing, the bed extremely comfortable, and the sound system rather fun!
I decided to have dinner served in our suite on the Saturday night, and have to say Caroline's service was above and beyond, they really are perfect hosts! The food was simply brilliant, a special mention going to the lamb, which was the nicest I think I have ever tasted. The breakfast wasn't too shabby either, again, special mention to the pancakes, the vegetarian sausages and the home made jams. The other staff were also very friendly and attentive.
This was my first visit to the lake district and Jon and Caroline were very helpful when pointing me in the right direction.
P.S. She said yes! :D
