I actually quite liked it here. I don't want to go on and on so I'll say it how it is and be truthful. This place is not for everyone. It's quite out of the way even though it's off a main road and not up the lanes or anything. It is the only property on the lake so feels...

I arrived in the dark and had to ask for directions as the sat nav directs you to some cottages half a mile away but once I arrived I knew that the view tomorrow morning would be worth it....and it was was. We got upgraded to a room with a lakeside view which would otherwise be well worth the money....

We stayed in the Tack Room in the last week of September and were blessed with lovely weather. This is our second visit and certainly will nto be our last. The Tack Room is warm,comfortable and clean with most things being catered for. The cottage is superbly placed for a walking holiday and the location means that there are many...

Unpleasant hosts who provide overpriced dirty accommodation & demand payment in advance, do not provide restaurant service to self catering guests. The bedding was too small for bed old blankets and old dirty pillows resulted in us having to go and buy new pillows & cases the bathroom toilet & shower was dirty, TV only had limited channels & DVD...

A beautiful setting by the lake. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. We had been upgraded to a junior 4 poster room which was a stunning room and completely unexpected. Only reason not five stars is it advertises a restaurant which is not promoted and the entrance is a bit tired which is a shame as its out of keeping with other...

We've had one amazing stay at this place. Completely secluded from crowds. In beautiful scenery and the only place on the lake. Phillip was so very helpful and gave us great tips for outings. He assisted us with maps, advices and bookings. Shame we only didn't have time to try their fine dining as the breakfasts were delicious. Thank you...

The setting begins with a lovely view of the lake and gardens that the owners clearly lavish attention on, but our spirits sank as we entered an interior that we found gloomy. We soon felt the onset of dust allergies. We expressed our unhappiness with the dust and lack of light and air to the owners. They responded that it...

Location is NOT 33 yards to lake as currently advertised more like 500 yards and is behind hotel so no view. Garden is NOT enclosed as currently advertised so not ideal for welcomed dogs. Clean and comfortable although outside smells of Tom cats! Very disappointed on arrival as totally misrepresented on website (they've been adviced). Be cautious when booking if...

Our weekend away was a spontaneous decision to " get away from it all" and it certainly delivered! Amazing hotel! Unrivalled tranquility and peace. This beautiful hotel in its stunning grounds and with its unique views is not to be missed. If you want lively and bustling......go to Bowness. If you want absolute calm, serenity and "a cut above the...

We came back on the 20th July from a beautiful sunny week in the tack room behind the hotel. We arrived saturday afternoon to a warm welcome, we later had drinks overlooking the most gorgeous view of the lake and gardens of the hotel. The room was plenty big enough for us and our large Labrador and the picture on...
