 New for 2015 – more ensuite rooms

We are currently undergoing a transformation – all of our guest rooms in the old hall have been refurbished and made into ensuites.  This is partly a response to our guests comments that they would prefer more ensuites, and it’s the start of an exciting programme of refurbishments throughout the guest accommodation.  We're now open for bookings in these new ensuites, and as usual in the other parts of our accommodation.


Book now

You can still book just one or a combination of rooms to suit your needs.  Come and enjoy a short or long stay in this unique and historic location with its tranquil gardens and beautiful grounds, on the doorstep of the Lake District.  Some of the rooms have the use of modern kitchen facilities so you can cater for yourself if you wish to.  And as 2015 prices start from £25 per night for a single room and £44 for a double or twin, we think this gives great value for money.

And, as previously, you can also book one or more suites of rooms to stay in with friends or family, for one or several nights stay, for a week’s holiday or weekend party.  See our booking pages for more information, or give us a call to discuss your requirements on 01229 583204
