Impromptu couple of days away. Steep walk up from bowness-amazing views. Fabulous relaxed and relaxing night at the sumptuous Hillthwaite. Immaculate bedroom (if somewhat overheated), modern walk in shower, divine toiletries, comfy bed. We had inclusive meal but we charged extra for dessert. I don't go a bundle on flowers & cress on dessert though. Breakfast fare better than evening...

Absolutely lovely hotel. From the moment we walked in-a very warm greeting, we took our dog with us and they made him feel extremely welcome too. He was allowed everywhere apart from the restaurant which was brilliant as he didn't feel left out! You wouldn't think the hotel was pet friendly, everywhere is spotless!
