Excellent property really clean and good facilities.

I annually organise a winter walking trip to the lakes and have never explored this area before, excellent walking around Knott and skiddaw via ullock pike. The property was a excellent base with good facilities. The snooty Fox pub was really friendly and served a good pint after a day in the fells.
