Me and my husband spent 4 nights in this magical oldy worldy house which is situated perfectly in the heart of the lake district.
Nigel and Trish are the hosts of the house and you could not ask for a nicer couple to look after you during your stay, nothing is ever too much trouble for them and they like to help you as much as possible with anything you ask.
The house itself has a very relaxing ambiance and Our room 'Osprey' had everything you could ask for it was a great size, clean and the bed was very comfortable.
The food at the Seatoller House is amazing, one of the first things Nigel and Trish said to us was that 'you will never go hungry at the Seatoller House' and this is very true! We thoroughly enjoyed eating like King and Queen for the whole duration of our stay, the packed lunches that can be made for you are ideal for a long day on the hills and are very tasty. When you get back from your long walk and step back into the Seatoller House you are greeted by the lovey smell of freshly made cakes which are made everyday and are too good to walk away from.
We cannot put into words how good this place is as they do not do it enough justice, you will have to visit yourself.
We rate this at the top of our places to stay and cannot wait to visit again.
