The property was built in 1885 using local Borrowdale slate in the grand Victorian style of the day. It has many delightful architectural features which make our rooms so quirky, such as its high turrets, balconies, big bay windows and the veranda which is perfect for that perfect gin & tonic whilst taking in the views.
