What’s in a name? Quite a lot if you live in Dull or Boring, two villages which have been in the news after they recently became twinned.
If you would prefer to visit somewhere whose name promises rather more excitement then dive into today’s Big Deal on a two night stay near the Lake District.
Lake District getaway
Today’s special Big Deal is for a two night stay for two people in the lovely Ennerdale Country House Hotel in Cleator.
A Grade II listed building, the hotel nestles in five acres of tranquil parkland gardens which boast Italian fountains and figurines.
Beautifully refurbished, it features painstakingly restored original fireplaces and ceilings which mirror the elegance of the thirty, individually decorated, ensuite bedrooms.
A bottle of house red wine in your room on arrival will help you settle in.
Fountain Room Restaurant
As well as a full cooked breakfast on each morning of your stay, guests will enjoy a three course meal in the Fountain Room Restaurant on their first night.
With views over the landscaped gardens, the restaurant has an extensive menu of delicious dishes prepared by the innovative kitchen team.
Located close to Keswick and Cockermouth, Ennerdale Country House Hotel is the ideal base from which to explore the Lake District National Park.
In addition to the western lakes and fells, nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle Gardens and Owl Centre; the Ravenglass & Eskdale Miniature Steam Railway; Trotters Farm Park and the beautiful seaside town of St. Bees.
Many visitors to Ennerdale appreciate the hotel’s calm, relaxing atmosphere. This is what a recent guest had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘My girlfriend and I came to the hotel for a quiet weekend break. The staff at the hotel accommodated us to the best of their ability and room upgrades and general service were what you would expect at a 4/5 star operation.
The grounds and hotel were very well maintained and suited our requirements perfectly. Facilities, upkeep, staff and service were faultless during our stay and I would recommend to anybody thinking about staying here.’
