Visited here for a couple of nights. Room was mediocre considering how much we paid for two nights, however the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Staff couldn’t have made us feel more comfortable if they tried especially the reception staff.More

Take the turning from bowness towards Ambleside and there is a car park opposite the Beartrix potter museum for £15 for 3 days. It’s only a 10 Minuets walk from the hotel. Much better value than the rip off they charge.

There is a car park up the hill, approximately 5 mins walk from the hotel. It was full when we were there recently but I think you can reserve places on line, I believe it is about £15:00 for 3 days.
