Very well presented room. Delicious breakfast! A very friendly welcome from the staff. Conveniently located for Grasmere village and a walk up to Stone Arthur & Great Rigg. Close to the A591 which made it very easy to find but a little bit noisy, which wasn't a problem for us but may annoy some. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
