Michelin Star, cosy gourmet getaway nestled in Whinlatter Forest, serving delicious food using the finest ingredients from Cumbria and further afield.

The ideal place to enjoy an epicurean experience and feel the benefits of being surrounded by the great outdoors, with mountain views to Skiddaw and regular visits to the garden from red squirrels and native wildlife. With nine contemporary rooms offering woodland or garden views, it’s a haven of tranquillity and relaxation.
‘Top quality ingredients and classic techniques take the lead…there is a certain sophistication to the well-balanced flavour pairings.’
