Clean, comfortable, beautiful location. Excellent value for money.Car necessary to reach nearest pub/village. Lovely local walks.
Setting was idyllic and staff were warm and friendly.
Very homely, relaxed, personal. Breakfast was very substantial, even for a day at Scafell Pike. A selection of teas in our room was surprising and welcome.
