Booked this due to the online reviews and it was even better than I could have hoped for. The thought and planning that has gone into this place is fantastic. We stayed in room 12, this was our 10th wedding anniversary treat plus we love visiting the Lakes.
I loved the very high standard in the room, very clean, plenty of sockets, control over the heating including bathroom underfloor, mini fridge and lovely balcony. The other half loved having a proper big TV and the huge bed! Another bonus was the excellent wifi, very useful for checking the weather and places to visit!
The welcome was very genuine and the offer of tea and coffee on arrival with the best shortbread ever meant we had to have seconds.
The breakfast we also loved, the variety was impressive and its all local, cooked to order and the service was excellent, nothing is ever too much trouble. Our favourite, eggs benedic on portobello mushroom.
We slept very well and when I requested a different pillow as I suffer neck problems there were no issues, we returned to find a selection of alternative pillows.
Without doubt we'll be back to this very peaceful guesthouse, we loved the walking distance to the towns, being able to leave the car behind was a bonus. Next time I'll need to remember our swimming kit and get use of the local spa.
Thank you Hawksmoor for a great stay and making our wedding anniversary so special.
Stayed May 2015, travelled as a couple
