A little education may...

Stayed in a nearby hotel which gave us complimentary passes to use the pool and spa facilities. Fabulous pool and spa facilities here. Very relaxing and chilled out atmosphere. I had a mini facial and back massage . One of the best I've ever had. Well worth a visit

The staff was friendly and helpful and guided us about places to visit in close vicinity. It's at a perfect little walking distance from Bowness. The garden is beautifully...

We rarely crave luxury when choosing places to stay, so this was an exception to our usual jaunts. However, the hotel was extremely welcoming and friendly, making us (or at least me) feel extremely at...
