My wife and I chose stay at Armathwaite Hall for our 40th wedding anniversary. We chose well as the atmosphere and ambience throughout this classy hotel was excellent, as were all aspects of the dining experience. The hotel provided us with details (with maps) of three walks which started and finished at the main gates of the hotel, which we greatly enjoyed. The hotel is situated in a relatively quiet, but attractive, corner of the Lake District which also suited us very well.

We loved our stay at ouse bridge with our dog Bonnie. Ben and Virginia were so welcoming and it felt like a home away from home. The b and b is very dog friendly which was so lovely and the room itself was clean and comfortable- perfect after an active day in the lake district and very good value for money. We loved the honesty bar too it is such a nice touch. The breakfast was perfect each morning with lots of choice. Location is lovely- nice and peaceful and only a short drive to Keswick. Thanks so much we hope to come stay again one day!
