Its been a beautiful sunny weekend, and spring is certainly in the air, with summer not far behind we hope.
The leaves are appearing on the trees and there are plenty of lambs in the fields.
The good weather and holidays has brought lots of people to the area and the hotel is pretty full, so lovely to see so many familiar faces and plenty of new guests as well, hopefully to become familiar faces in the future.
We still have some availability for the coming weeks so please give us a call if you fancy a break.

‘VERY knowledgable’ staff at a popular Kendal attraction are celebrating after securing a top accreditation.
Kendal Museum has been accredited as a Quality Assured Visitor Attraction - an assessment run by Visit England and recognises customer service and visitor experience at attractions across the country.
A Visit England assessor praised the strong collections, recognising the effort that has gone into creating a well-balanced wildlife gallery and the considerable effort that has been put into modernising the Wainwright Gallery.
In a report, the assessor said of the museum: “The Wildlife Gallery succeeds in presenting specimens from five continents in an imaginative and lively fashion that can be readily grasped by children”.
Learning facilities for children were also praised along with ‘excellent’ reading books being available.
The Wainwright Gallery was also commended for its cabinets and the assessor said that the staff ‘engaged well and were very knowledgeable’.
The assessor summed up his judgement and reported: “There is a wealth of excellent material in the museum – with the Wildlife Gallery and the Wainwright exhibits showing what can be achieved. The possibilities for mutually beneficial exchanges of skills with college courses and museum qualifications seem exciting. There is huge potential scope for the Museum.”
