Hillthwaite.

JH, Norfolk, stayed: October 2018

We had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel lounge area was very comfortable. The bar was well stocked with cocktails available and dinner was a delight particularly the Sunday roast.
The hotel was well situated, halfway between Windermere and Bowness. This made walking preferable to taking the car..
We would definitely return..
