It had classy decor and provided the homely comforts you require whilst being away from home – flat screen TV, complimentary WiFi access, telephone, hairdryer in addition to selection of tea and coffee, a work desk and a couple of chairs to relax on.

We decided to have a 3-course dinner. To start with, I had some ham terrine with quail egg, apple & toast.
My husband had some mackerel accompanied by beetroot & shallots dressing. Both dishes were presented nicely and flavorful.
Next, I had a fillet steak served with hand cut chips, tomato, onion & mushroom.
My husband had some lamb rump with mint mash, kale & carrot. Both dishes were palatable.
Finally, for my dessert (surprise, surprise!) I had some sticky toffee puddling with banana, vanilla ice cream & butterscotch. A question to all my regular readers: can you see a pattern here? Hahaha! I know, I know – i think I had sticky toffee pudding as a dessert everywhere we stopped in the Lake District! I really liked the caramelised banana addition to this classic pudding – it was delicious.
My husband had a cheeseboard served with some apple, celery, grapes, chutney, crackers & Port. It was appetizing.
Beech Hill Hotel & SPA is a nice hotel placed a magnificent location, offering a good food and good service. If you are planning a trip to the Lakes then it’s worth considering.
