About the hotel

Welcome to the Crown & Mitre, our 4 star Inn based near Haweswater in Cumbria. Situated in the beautiful hamlet of Bampton Grange, we are an historic free house nestled on the edge of the North Eastern Fells. We serve a range of fine wines and ales and the highest quality food made from fresh, local ingredients.

In our Lake District accommodation we have 8 en-suite bedrooms, and a self-catering apartment tastefully furnished and with views of the beautiful surrounding countryside. There are several walks directly from the Inn that can be as leisurely, or as challenging as you wish. We have amazing wildlife nearby. Watch out for the red squirrels in the church yard opposite, and England's only Golden Eagle in nearby Riggindale. We also regularly see red deer on the local fells nearby. Whilst situated in a quiet corner of the Lake District National Park, you are never more than a few minutes from the rest of Lakeland, giving you the benefit of easy access to attractions with a quiet haven to come home to.

Very quiet, comfortable. Not the cheapest though.

It's easy to criticise and find fault if you look hard enough.

However there is little fault to find here. The rooms and the rest of the hotel is very clean and maintained to a high standard. The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful yet manage to do this without being overpowering. Beware the bar doesn't officially open till 17:00 and doesn't open at lunch time. There is nothing else in the vacinity in the way of amenities so you are resigned to eating in the pub unless you are prepared to drive into the next village. It was however one of the most expensive places we stayed over our weeks holiday .

Superb location, disappointing accommodation.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Crown & Mitre, Friday & Saturday, in a Superior Double Room.

We didn't arrive until just before 8pm on the Friday as my husband works in London and his train was delayed so we didn't leave Hertfordshire until 2.30pm - not a good start. Last orders for food was 8.30pm (although the room brochure says 9pm) so we quickly went up to our room to freshen up. Our double bedroom was spacious with a huge bed and a small en suite shower room. As soon as we entered the room there was an unpleasant smell which we traced to the bathroom, a smell of damp earth, we put it down to the age of the building (Georgian?) and I opened the window and we went down to eat. We both had the Steak & Ale pie which was homemade, large portions and delicious, served with fresh vegetables and hand-cut chips, washed down with local beer and a G&T. Suitably refreshed we went to bed and slept like logs in the very comfortable bed, despite the odour from the bathroom and weren't disturbed by the church clock almost opposite our bedroom window which, although it struck every quarter of an hour, sounded as though it chimes had been muffled so the ear plugs provided weren't needed. We went down to breakfast at 8am and were served by a very pleasant lady in a separate dining room off the bar. There was a good selection of fresh fruit, juice, cereals and yoghurt and fresh coffee was served at our table. The hot food was serve yourself and consisted of sausages (chipolatas), bacon, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and scrambled egg. We thought the quantity was disappointing - for instance there were only 6 sausages so we felt we couldn't take as much as we wanted or there wouldn't be enough for other guests. My husband was disappointed there were no fried eggs nor hash browns or fried potatoes. It was worse on Sunday morning as there was a large group of hikers who were queueing for breakfast before the door was unlocked at 8am and who filled the dining room so we had to sit in the bar and, again, we felt the cooked breakfast wasn't plentiful enough for all of us. Can't fault the friendliness of the staff though who had obviously tried to address the smell in our bathroom whilst we were out on the Saturday, although it was coming back again by the time we left on Sunday. All in all, although we enjoyed our brief stay, we felt it wasn't good value for money for £100 a night and are therefore unlikely to return.
