“Absolutely Wonderful Stay”
Beautiful place within the Lake District, a short travel to Windemere and Keswick. The Inn itself was beautiful, very clean and comfortable, with lovely views of Blencathra and the surrounding countryside, lovely staff who were very helpful and kind. The food at the Horse and Farrier was delicious, we booked in for an evening meal and couldn't have asked for more,
Overall, a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely come back again and would 100% recommend.
