The weather could have been better - bitterly cold at the top of the fells, even in June, but the Guest House was top notch. Very helpful and knowledgeable - breakfast was like an informal guide/information gathering session, but not overpowering. We chose all our walks after advice picked up at breakfast (which was also superb)
