Quaint cosy stay. Staff brilliant
Wonderful trip to the kings head over Christmas. Staff were amazing - very friendly and accommodating. Christmas dinner brilliant. Room was clean and cosy. Parking just outside. Lovely position within a short drive to grassmere and Keswick and Ambleside. Bus stop right outside the hotel. Can walk up Helvellyn direct from the hotel. Highly recommended.
