Manager recommends: Discover a rural retreat in the Wild Ennerdale Valley where Galloway cattle roam freely and the river has been allowed to find its own course. Don’t miss the panoramic view from the dining room over to Pillar rock and the Ennerdale forest. It's the perfect location for activity breaks in the Lake District - from walking and hiking holidays to cycling breaks.
