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. The hotel has only 7 bedrooms but all appear to be comfortable with double beds and on suite facilities. This is a family...

I used this hotel for a meeting one afternoon in December, its off the main road near the entrance to a mobile home site, My first impression wasn't that good to be honest, the hotel had a bit of a run down feel to it, but, once I got into it, the staff here were very friendly and helpful, my...

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.

Nice welcome and food was very good. The bedroom was a little tired but the helpful staff made up for it. We would use again. It is in a nice location and with more time we would have explored some of the locality that appeared a really nice area.

We were visiting Lancaster at the weekend and were very happy to have stayed at Scarthwaite. The staff were lovely especially James who helped us with some top tips for navigating the notoriously crazy one-way system on our way to a concert in the town. The hotel was only a few minutes from the centre but in a peaceful location....

We were staying on the Crook O'Lune holiday park and ate here as it is closeby. The food was traditional but very well presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were attentive without being overbearing and could not do enough to make our visit enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit.
