    We stayed at Hunter's Moon several years ago, really enjoyed our stay, and had high expectations of this New Year break. Sadly, we were more than a little disappointed on this occasion. We arrived to a cold house, with a slight damp / musty smell. The heating was remotely controlled, and set very low, making it difficult for us to warm the house up, and there was no wood for the wood burner.

    We stayed at Hunter's Moon several years ago, really enjoyed our stay, and had high expectations of this New Year break. Sadly, we were more than a little disappointed on this occasion. We arrived to a cold house, with a slight damp / musty smell. The heating was remotely controlled, and set very low, making it difficult for us to warm the house up, and there was no wood for the wood burner. Further, there was no heating at all in the dining room (neither the underfloor heating nor the night storage heater worked) effectively rendering this room unusable. The house itself was much as we remembered it, but was rather "tired" - the floor rugs, for example, were very dirty, and the bed that we used needs a new mattress. On the positive side, the owner telephoned the day after we arrived (a first for us!) and gave us access to logs for the wood burner, which, once we had mastered how to keep the burner going, enabled us to warm the house up in the evenings. As the week progressed, the house gradually warmed up.

About the location

SKELWITH BRIDGE

Ambleside 3 miles; Grasmere 3 miles.

Skelwith Bridge is located in the very heart of the Lake District at the foot of the Langdale Valley. Grasmere, Ambleside and Lake Windermere are all located within three miles of this picturesque hamlet. The small village of Elterwater with its English Lake District Inn is just a twenty minute walk passing Skelwith Force, a fifteen feet high waterfall where the River Brathay forces a passage through the rocks. Once a centre for the slate processing industry, it consists of a cluster of stone buildings by a picturesque bridge spanning the River Brathay. Today, hand-crafted articles can be purchased from the shop and cafe at ‘Chesters by the River’. The Skelwith Bridge Hotel and Talbot Pub, dating back to the 17th century sit in the centre of the hamlet. Nearby Grasmere is perhaps best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found".
