Excellent experience all round
Very comfortable stay in beautiful house with friendly hosts
I chose Powe House on the basis of positive reviews and I definitely have to agree.
This was a lovely place to stay. It is a very attractive house with bright, spotlessly clean rooms. I had the small single room, which was ideal for me, but it's worth noting that the en-suite bathroom (also immaculately clean) is very small, with shower only don't pick this room if you want to relax in a bath after a day's walking. Host very friendly and welcoming, and flexible to my need to be out very early in the mornings. This will definitely be my first choice accommodation next time I'm staying in this part of the Lake District.
