On the rare occasion I get a few simultaneous days off from work and parenting, I booked a few nights away with my beloved in the Lake District.
After looking through the usual booking, trivago, expedia etc. etc. I found a hotel that is famed for its Beatrix Potter connotations.
We were welcomed by Elaine who gave us a tour of the bottom floor with its eccentric carpets and clever book displays.
After this we were welcomed to our room which was immaculate, and we had a fantastic, and unexpected, turndown service.
The garden outside is beautiful, and the surrounding grounds are stunning. The view from our room was magnificent.
The entirety of the staff were superb, including dealing with a slight billing error when we left. The barmen knew what they were talking about and reccomended some fantastic gins.
I will be booking again!
