We have invited a company called Mediclean UK to visit the site and they will be coming every 28 days and applying an anti-covid covering to all surfaces in guest rooms, public areas, public loos, corridors and patio which prevents/kills the coronavirus. They will provide a certificate for every room and area and covid safe accreditations. We have also produced further risk assessments for Staff - kitchen, front of house and housekeepers, plus a general risk assessment for the building. And, our staff have been trained, you just received one certificate but all 4 have completed it.
Our Inspector's view
Built in 1854 as a country retreat, this lovely old house enjoys a peaceful location, tucked away within easy walking distance of the town centre. Bedrooms, some on the ground floor, are deeply comfortable and very well equipped, with a luxurious annexe suite available for longer stays or romantic getaways. There is a choice of lounges and bars where guests can relax before enjoying dinner in the well-appointed dining room.

About the area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
