Just back from a 2 night stay at The Ryebeck. What a great place! The food is the best hotel meal that I have ever eaten. From the nibbles with our pre-meal drinks, the food just kept coming and none of the courses failed to impress. We took Afternoon Tea on the 2nd day and again the quality was amazing, washed down by a glass of chilled Prosecco. The perfect pick me up, after a hike up Helvellyn across Striding Edge.
All of the staff we encountered were friendly, courteous, and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a lake view room and although the hotel is not lakeside, it is still a great view to wake up to each morning. Room was spotless with ample supplies of tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. The gardens are impressive and very colourful in mid-May; I even spotted a Deer in the front garden one evening. We ate in town on the second night and a taxi from the hotel into Bowness cost about £4.
The unexpected warm dry weather certainly helped but you couldn't fail to enjoy the hospitality at The Ryebeck, whatever the conditions outside.
We certainly hope to return sooner rather than later!
