My wife and I came for 3 nights with our French bulldog, travelling up from London by train to Oxenholme train station, literally 5 minutes away down the hill. We enjoyed every minute of our stay! Bill and Pauline Connell took care of every detail. Our family-size room had an inspiring view of the Helm hilltop above us. Everything we could possibly need was in the room, including tea, coffee, and hot chocolate making facilities, a hair dryer and vanity mirror, free Wi-fi, TV and DVD player, a setee and cushions, and a variety of toiletries in the en-suite bathroom (which actually had a bath!). A hearty breakfast to order was cooked by Bill and served with a smile in the breakfast room at the pre-selected time. Pauline was most attentive and kind and took a genuine interest in our activities each day! To be honest, our stay left nothing to be desired, a real eye-opener! We'll be back, and I must try that home-made marmalade and jam next time.
