On the edge of the National Park, a handsome 1700s house with original features galore. Period colours blend with contemporary pieces, eclectic finds and local art, the red sitting room is warmly inviting. Mike and Robbie live nearby and look after you well; the Whitrigg breakfast includes homemade bread, jams and muesli, fruit with crème fraîche and a full English. Beds are wonderfully comfy; towels thick and large. Stroll to the pub for supper, or if you arrive late tuck into a complimentary bowl of soup, or winter mulled wine. Just minutes from the M6 for a comfy stopover, and a good base for exploring the Lakes. Perfect!
