Had a lovely stay at the Ivythwaite hotel for 2 nights. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and provided a great breakfast with plenty of choice.
Like a lot of places in the lake district it isn’t a modern look hotel but personally that’s not a bad thing and definitely wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

A beautiful b&b, excellent breakfast, wonderful attentive hosts. Lovely soft bed. A great 4 night stay to explore the lakes.
A lovely room with gorgeous spa bath! A perfect distance from both the lake (about 20mins walk) and a cluster of quality restaurants (about 9mins walk). Would definitely stay here again and will be recommending to all our friends! The owners were super friendly and helpful, and breakfast was delicious too!
