We had booked the double room for the weekend and when we arrived we were greeted by Lesley at the front door. She told us that as no one was using betty's (the cottage) that we could have the use of that. This gave us a lovely lounge, big kitchen and a lovely bedroom all to ourselves.
From the moment we got there Lesley could not have been more helpful. We hadn't been to this part of the Lake District before and she was able to suggest excellent places for us to eat in the evening, as well as booking a table and offering us a lift or to pick up the car in the morning.
Her cooked breakfasts are lovely and huge, we never needed to have lunch all weekend!
Lesley asked what we had planned each morning and was able to suggest lots of things to do even though the weather wasn't the best during our stay.
Lesley's attention to detail, customer service and knowledge of the area really made for an excellent weekend away and we can highly recommend the old school.
