5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

My recent trip to the Lake District was much more than I had expected. Beautiful weather, first class hotel at Lindeth Howe, gourmet restaurant. It was what I needed after attending a congress in London. For young families I would recommend a week stay so they can enjoy sailing, horseback riding, hiking. It was also very interesting to learn about Beatrix Potter's exemplary contribution to the district.

The accommodation and tour were fantastic! The only disappointment was that the time given to begin the tour was 9:30 and it didn't really start until 11:40 from the hotel. The hotel staff were fantastic ringing to get information etc and luckily I had a book and a lovely place to read it while I waited.
