With Broadoaks Country House Hotel you have a found a real gem and it certainly ticks all the boxes for romance, country house chic, gourmet dining and being a pet-friendly hotel.. From the moment you approach its sweeping drive, pass the manicured lawns with the lover’s swing beneath the broad oak tree and admire the central fountain, the 19th century house stands impressively looking out across 7 acres of land and breathtaking views of the Lake District - you can even hear the beck that runs through the hotel grounds.
Once inside, you will be greeted warmly by its young and friendly staff on arrival. The arts and crafts music room is welcoming with its roaring fire and grand piano whilst the Michelin recommended restaurant offers fine dining by its creative and considerate chef. Each of the 16 bedrooms – all named after trees in the Lake District, are beautifully and individually decorated with tasteful period styling. Four poster beds, deep colours, silk cushions and whirlpools in the bathrooms are just some of the features. In each room, there’s a personalised letter welcoming the guests, with refreshments and chocolates thoughtfully laid out.
What’s more, the hotel is pet-friendly too. Rooms on the ground floor can cater for pets and there’s even a welcoming letter for your pet and a nutritious Four Paws Menu approved by the hotel’s resident dog, Molly. There’s an excellent choice of walks straight from the hotel offering an invigorating day’s dog walking.
