Good size rooms for 3-4 people and well provided with everything you could want - including a bottle of wine on arrival - ta for that!. It is an easy 20 minute stroll into Keswick which builds a good hunger for eating and drinks in any of the many great pubs in the town centre - Wainwrights was our particular favourite. Would definitely stay here again - Really easy to get around for walking in many parts of the lakes from this well positioned accommodation

We didn't want for anything! Staveley is a great location too, with little shops for browsing crafts and local produce, through to riverside walks and kids play areas. The Eagle and Child pub was well worth the visit - clean plates all round, friendly staff and a good pint. All in all, a great stay. Thank you.

The location is beautiful and we had no problem getting around. We loved the Inn at the end of the road, it's very busy but you can see why! Great food and very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
