Looking for a good hotel that is pet friendly is not easy, we were looking for one in the Lancaster area and spotted Scarthwaite, so so glad we did as I would say the best pet friendly hotel we have stayed in.

Me and my mrs stayed recently for 10 days. I'm not really one to right reviews, but on this occasion I feel our stay there deserves a comment.. 10 out of 10. Michael and his son James are great hosts. Friendly and willing to go that extra mile. Michael has a vast knowledge of the local area which came in...

The Hotel was about 4 Miles from where I was working in Lancaster but the peace and quite of the rural setting was super. The food was of the local nature and the ingredients were locally sourced.

We had booked 4 rooms for a family get together for our Nanna's 90th birthday celebration and everyone was pleased with their rooms. We enjoyed the day sat relaxing around...

I had good time at scarthwaite country house and hotel. Staff was friendly, food was good. The only thing that let it down for me was that I booked a double room and went to check in and found that they gave the room to someone else. The only room that was left was a twin room which was a...

This beautifully situated grand country house truly exceeded our expectations! It boasts a beautiful outdoor space along a bend on the river and an ample indoor lounge and dining room. Our triple room was large, comfortable and bright for the three of us (my college daughter accompanied us). So check this out---I had some laundry left over from our last...

Michael and all the staff were wonderful. The room was clean, nicely decorated and the beds were comfy. The bubble bath was a plus for our toddler. I recommend the Cedar room. Breakfast was also tasty.
