This converted former hostel, has been sympathetically converted into 12 ensuite bedrooms, with stunning views either of the fells to the North or the gardens, rivers and fells to the South. All rooms are very comfortably furnished to a high standard and include flat screen TVs with DVD players (there is a DVD library for those wetter or lazier days) and WIFI for those that cannot be away from it all. All the bathrooms have bath and shower.
On the ground floor there are two large sitting rooms, one with a cosy wood burning stove and doughy sofas to laze on, the other equally as comfortable, and with the added large screen TV with Playstation hooked-up to it to entertain the children (of whatever age). Breakfast is served in a dining room overlooking the extensive gardens with the confluence of the River Esk and Whillan Beck; all residents have the use of this room all day for making snacks in, or just to get a corkscrew and a glass or two.There are endless walks straight from the door - river, flat or hilly - depending on the level of activity require. Plus, we have the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway on our doorstep (literally!).
We are surrounded by 5 fantastic Inns, all serving excellent food and award winning real ale; none of them further than a 5 minute drive, and two of them within a 10 minute walk.
