"A wonderful cosy place in a very special spot, thank you. The local shop is so special, dad enjoyed the sausages! Some great walks to Stanley Ghyll Waterfall and up Black Combe in sunshine. We'd planned to go to The Brown Cow, but opted to stay in with the log burner and Cartmel sticky toffee pudding!"
