    Brilliant stay 2nd year running; lovely place and location is second to none for hospitality, views and sunsets. Booths and Spar are the 2 convience stores nearby but we use to shop at main supermarkets when we were out. Internet is intermittent but this is stated in main spec before you book. Sky box installed but maybe this day and age a freeview box would be a better option? (just a suggestion). If we returned to the Lakes Dixies would be our first choice of accommodation; Heather and Derek (owners) are a delightful couple and very knowledgable of the area. Windermere is just 15 miles up the road with the main A Road just 2 miles away making the Lake district very accessable.

    An absolutely perfect venue, close and central to everything and very comfortable. The owners could not have done more to make my stay wonderful, and the sunsets over the water every night will stay with me forever!
