Stayed at several lovely country house hotels in the area and this is certainly right up there. We got a room upgrade which really made it. Superb views over Windermere. Great food and service. Pretty much fautless.

Had 3 course lunch. Impeccable service and outstanding food. Perfect portions beautifully presented. Chef did amazing things to tiny tomatoes and it just went up from there. And there is a world class view of Lake Windermere. Did not stay in the hotel

No, not possible to walk to a Pub from this Country House Hotel. It's not easy to find a convenient parking place in this Hotel between the profusion of Maseratis and Porsches when I was there , so you get the picture !
