My husband and some colleagues had previously stayed with Trevor at Lowther House and now it was my turn to experience Trevor's renowned hospitality. We arrived to be greeted by Trevor with tea and delicious home made cake. Our room was large and beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with a gorgeous bathroom. Trevor obviously takes great pride in his house, and I can't really blame him. Even though it is in a row of houses on a steeply sloping street, you would never know it judging by the view from the rooms - it looks so private and secluded from the side and back.
I know other people have commented about the lack of locks on the bedroom doors but this didn't bother me. I did barricade it with my case though, since my husband has a tendency to sleep walk and I didn't want to wake up to find him wandering off down the street in his pants!
Breakfast was a treat and we could have eaten as much as we wanted. Trevor was an attentive host and we had a good chat with him. It somehow seems like visiting a friend when you are sitting in his kitchen being served breakfast - a lot more personal than a dining room.
I hope we manage another trip to Whitehaven so we can stay with Trevor again, he is just a lovely man!
Another reviewer commented on the parking - we managed to get parked directly opposite and had no problems, apart from dodging the traffic to cross the road!
