“Basic but good”

Perfect for low maintenance hikers. Good bed and bathroom facilities but no frills. No TV and Poor WiFi could be improved but this is the downside for being in the single most amazing part of the Lake District. Service was friendly but slow to respond or not present.
Nice breakfast, flexible to the guests requests.
