We stayed at the Lake Farmhouse over night during our coast 2 coast ride as part of a group of 8 on tandems. As we were the last couple to confirm Erica said they could still put us up but in a converted "broom cupboard". Our room was no cupboard it was very comfortable and spacious with soft towels and a large comfortable bed. The bathroom is the most spectacular we have ever seen and the rain shower was just the ticket after a mornings cycling. We were greeted with tea and home made almond cake by the pool followed by a delicious home cooked meal. The gardens are wonderful. Breakfast was first class and Erica's home made granola is a must followed by a high quality full English to send us on our way. Please do not be put off by the broken track to the house it is serviceable and is not representative of the sublime service from Erica and Gary awaiting at the end of it.
