While it was a little bit difficult for me to find the place, the stay at Gill Brow was a very good experience.
The property is located in the farming area of Newlands Valley and, as a result, is situated in an area where it is only accessible by a single lane country road. If you are not used to driving in UK like I wasn't, you may find it a little difficult to find.
However, it turned out to be a good thing to stay here because of the hospitality of the host as well as the overall ambience this old house affords.
Upon our arrival, we were treated to a tea and cookies. Our rooms were modest but comfortable. The house itself is said to be more than 300 years old and is decorated with family heirlooms giving you an insight into an ordinary English family.
Breakfast was fulfilling and delicious. The house is close to the town of Keswick (5 minutes by car), many small country pubs, and the beautiful, majestic Newland Valley.
