Delightful, old-fashioned bar in smart hotel, with enjoyable bar food and a fine range of drinks; bedrooms

You'd never guess that a charming little bar of proper character (and used by chatty locals) was at the heart of this civilised and smart hotel. Nicely old-fashioned, it has mellow polished walls, cushioned oak settles, rush-seat chairs and library seats, and hunting prints and photographs. Coniston Bluebird Bitter, Cumbrian Legendary Loweswater Gold and Hawkshead Bitter on handpump, 16 good wines by the glass, 70 malt whiskies and ten gins and ten vodkas all served by friendly, knowledgeable staff. There's a front bistro, a formal back restaurant overlooking the garden and several comfortable lounges with log fires, beautiful flower arrangements, fine parquet flooring, antiques and plants. The garden has seats and tables and is surrounded by attractive woodland. Bedrooms are well equipped, comfortable and pretty, and two of them are pet friendly. There are plenty of walks in all directions.
