    “I was coming to the area to start a new job and decided to have somewhere nice and quiet for my first week until I found a more permanent arrangement.”

    The Pleasant Hut is aptly named. The outside: A lovely outlook, absolute quietness, total privacy, nice garden area, easy parking in courtyard. The inside: Really fresh, well equipped, quality, good double glazing, comfortable, cozy. The bed is super comfy. The ensuite is small and I am large - however it was absolutely adequate in size and I had no issues. A great shower by the way, with decent pressure. I have no negatives to speak of. The hosts were really nice and helpful ...

Further afield, journey into the Lake District National Park to enjoy Lakes Aquarium, Wray Castle or embark on a challenging hike to the summit of Scafell Pike. Relish a childhood adventure at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction before heading to the author’s former home at Hill Top or try out a range of water sports on offer on Lake Windermere.
