Very good stay. Quiet yet easy access to main lkes
Great homely pub where you are welcomed in and have a good resturant on site with delicious range of local ales and a warm fire. Breakfast excellent. Bus from a stop 2 mins walk away runs all day and into the late evening taking you pretty much anywhere in the lakes with great scenery to see on route.

Disliked: Room comfort
The room (6) was very tight and head room was really bad ( always banging your head on the low beam. Bathroom was super tight …. If you were to be a 6ft 2in 15 stone bloke you would find it unusable!! Road noise was bad.😬 I would not stay again…. 😢

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The property itself looks charming however it’s by a noisy highway and since we were in a poky little room upstairs and it was hot the window was open and the noise bothered us. Their COVID rules were laughable, wanting us to strip the bedding and bag it but not even cleaning and sanitizing tables between bookings in the pub. Won’t be back.

Excellent real ales from on-site brewery, so staying here is handy if you like good beer! Single room is quite small, but very clean and comfortable.
