Fantastic getaway
We arrived at the Brown horse in and was greeted by Craig who was lovely and very welcoming he showed us to our room what was absolutely outstanding. We had a small spot outside our room where we could sit and have a few drinks and look at the amazing view. The room was wonderful. It was clean and very comfortable with a lovely modern clean bathroom. The room had all the usual things provided was able to make a brew and hair dryer. We stayed for two nights and booked tables for our evening meals that were absolutely beautiful and returned to our room after our meal to be provided blankets to sit outside and watch the sunset. We were very well looked after by a lovely lady named Lorna who made us feel so welcome and who was always making sure we were ok as did everyone else who worked at The Brown Horse. This was a trip that was definitely needed and it was made super special for us as well. The second night we booked a table for ourselves and so friends who weren’t staying and they too were made to feel extremely welcome. The location of the hotel was perfect as we had activities booked around the area and was a great driving distance and about 7 min drive to lake Windermere. This place will definitely be somewhere we will be booking into again in the future had an excellent time and would definitely recommend. Cat wait to return

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
We were very disappointed to find when the confirmation came through the room we had booked did not take dogs. We were offered the only dog friendly room they had with a put up bed for my daughter for the same charge as the family room originally booked. We would have preferred to cancel but due to the terms of booking was unable to, forcing us to take what we felt was a substandard room. This should made clear on the site if there is only one room that take dogs and which one.

Lovely little place to stay, warm and welcoming room clean, tidy and very comfortable. Not a place to stay for anyone who need to be IT connected as no phone signal and unreliable wifi - but I kinda loved being off the grid for a bit.
