Having stayed near Hawes 30+ years ago and driven through it several times since, we were looking forward to staying again. We were not disappointed.
The welcome from Lindsay was as if we were old friends, and by the time we left we felt that we were! All the staff were incredibly friendly, not just to us but our two labs as well.
The food was of a high standard, the beer was excellent, in particular the Theakston's Old Peculiar was some of the best I've ever had.
The dogs loved their sausages each morning for they're breakfast and ours was hearty enough to last us all day, a feat never attained from any hotel I've visited.
We were blessed with stunning weather which really made for a fantastic break. The only fly in the ointment was that because it was so warm we left our window open which meant we heard the market traders setting up on the Tuesday morning. A small price to pay for a wonderful experience. Oh, and the stiles were so narrow I had to lift my old lab over most of them. He's now on a diet!
We recommend the lazy walk to Hardraw and the beer at The Green Dragon Inn.
