We stayed for seven days in wonderful Gosforth Hall. It is a very special place. The owners are warm and friendly, the staff kind and professional. We arrived late on a Saturday night, and the owner helped us with our bags to our room, which was spacious and cosy (albeit a little dark). Coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, tea, millk and mineral water are in generous supply. The TV is good quality with a number of free digital channels. Every day the room was cleaned spotlessly with fresh towels. Important to me, was that there is also free Wi-Fi and good mobile phone signal.
Food in Gosforth Hall is second to none. The home-made pies are world famous and we ate hearty meals on numerous occasions. They have good beer on tap, including our favorites : Kronebourg and good quality Guinness. If I had one request, it would be to offer some deep filled bauguettes/sandwiches on the menu as well.
The owners could not have been more engaging and helpful, offering guidance to special places, navigation advice and good conversation. Gosforth Hall had a hotel manager as well, Miss Lucy Kennedy, who could not have been more obliging. She has a gift in looking after guests.
I and my partner arrived at Gosforth Hall, tired and a little worn. We left a week later, happy, revived, and needing to go on a diet, after all the excellent food.
We would recommend this place to anyone interested in the Lakes, and all the beauty around. Gosforth Hall is the gateway to Wasdale and is at the edge of Gosforth village.
