We stayed here for our trip to the Lakes.
We booked it through Booking.com and it scores 9.7 on their website. I scored it as 10 when we got back.
It isn’t perfect, as they expect you to have satnav rather than giving proper directions; I spotted two cobwebs during the stay; the times for booking in and out and having breakfast could be more leisurely and er…that’s about it.
As I found it without satnav, can see more cobwebs in my office than I did on holiday and never missed breakfast I don’t think I have much to complain about.
Somebody complained they don’t have internet access in the rooms. That was one of the best bits of the holiday as far as I was concerned.
It is an elegant and well-appointed house which has been furnished an equipped with an eye for detail. Breakfasts were excellent, linen was crisp and it was all very tranquil. It’s hard to put it into words but if you want to relax I suggest a few days here (avoiding busy times! See my last post for details of why).
Seems a good place to quote Ruskin as he generally seems to say things better than I can and he was almost a neighbour.
Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.
