A very special place to stay. If you don't mind being a short car ride from local amenities and about an 30-50 minutes drive from lots of the lake district tourist spots but very close to Scotland and the Fetherstone Arms close by does lovely food, very inviting (great pies). We stayed in the King Oswald with 2 children, there is a lovely four poster bed with views from every window, fields of lambs and partridges surround you. As my husband is too tall for a four poster, we slept in the bed in the sitting room which was lovely, large and comfortable. The high ceilings were spotless (no spiders webs) and there was a lovely welcoming tea and bisuits (with a box of maltesers for the kids) on arrival (a really lovely and unexpected gesture, not sure if this happens every time but it was very appreciated after a long drive). The shower bathroom was lovely and clean with good lighting. The heating was on all the time throughout our stay and it was lovely and warm, really cosy. There was lots of storage (a big wardrobe and chest of drawers in both bed areas). The four poster bed is in a bedroom of it's own, as this room is often used for romantic getaways, but if there are more of you, they put a nice antique looking metal bed in the sitting room and as the room is so large there is plenty of room for it. We used the kitchen facilities to cook a few nights and everything was included even oven dishes covered in foil in preparation (to protect them) and plenty of glasses/cups/plates and all the cutlery you might need. There was washing up liquid, toilet paper and lovely white robes and towels provided. The only thing I needed to get was kitchen paper and washing up gloves and some clothes washing liquid. There is a washer/dryer for clothes. A fabulous place, imposing on arrival but very friendly. They leave games and DVD's for residents to use in the main hallway. And in our room there was a DVD player for this and a big TV. Wifi is free to which is great. Just so you know this room we stayed in is on the 1st floor, so you have to take your suitcases up the grand staircase, so be prepared for that (there's no lifts) but the staircase is wide, deep and curved, very easy to walk up/down.
