A relaxing & charming haven, set in breathtaking scenery in this idyllic corner of the lakes.
When bought by Mr & Mrs Read in 1969 as a 5-bedroomed guesthouse, creature comforts were somewhat limited. There was no central heating, of course no en suite facilities, just one shared bathroom for the guests’ use, and electric bar-heaters for warmth in the bedrooms at a cost of a shilling in the slot. Such luxury!!!! Behind the scenes a traditional scullery and kitchen complete with creel and coke-fired Aga, two-bedroom living accommodation and four darling little children, all eager to help!
Carefully updated over the years, the now 18-bedroomed hotel, set in a 1/2acre of beautifully kept garden, with magnificent views over Morecambe bay, still maintains the elegance and tranquillity of a bygone era.
We are again very proud to have retained our place amongst the AA’s top hotels, with our Inspectors’ Choice and Red Star accolades and a Rosette for our meals, as well as a Gold Award from the English Tourist Board (Visit Britain), inclusion in the Good Hotel and Michelin Guides, thanks to the continuing efforts of Andrew, Mark, Bruno, in fact all our staff, upstairs and downstairs.
