The hotel is situated in a valley between the M6 motorway and the A6 at Shap which makes it a very quiet location. There is also a red squirrel sanctuary in the area although we did not see any on our visit. The road to the hotel is a moorland B road and may be difficult to access when icy...

Stayed here on possibly the coldest night of this Winter! A nice warm entrance hall, and reception handed over the key with a pleasant smile and everything was ready for us on arrival. The bedroom was warm and furnished generously with space to relax, and a new en-suite, tv, and welcome tray. We had booked B and B, with an...
