... store. I may have mentioned this in a previous post, but I don't care. I love my new cup and burner. Man want fire, man have fire! Hmmmph (initiate caveman grunt)!
July Fourth was a huge letdown and I realized how much I missed America at that point in time. I stared at Facebook for hours thinking about what I could have accomplished on a financial status, but mores on a fun status with my beach cruiser, ‘Merica sunglasses, and a Flag speckled getup that would make ...
Denise at Gates travel said she'd get back to me with potential deals for hotel and flights. that was on Saturday, it is now Tuesday and she's not got back to me yet. I so want to get this holiday booked so that I can start planning. I'll ring her tomorrow. In the meantime, I've spoken to three other travel agents, all of whom are checking hotel prices and ...
... for ages before the cyclists arrive was good, lots of sponsor floats, police and gendarmes on motor bikes hi-fiving kids in the crowd as they rode noisily past. The peleton arrived about 3.30 - almost a blur as they took the corner at about 40 miles an hour ! Had lots of fun and were able to get east to the M1 quickly and headed north before cutting across the moors back west to Gwen's.
... They were leaving the Lakes that day so somewhat of a coincidence - again. Turns out another of the congregation has a niece in Remuera - a small world indeed! We got our walking gear together and headed off to park up (you pay for all parking here) and walk past Grasmere lake (our favourite spot in the world) and up Loughrigg fell. Guy and Sam scampered off at the front of the party and he only went on a lead (Sam that is!) when sheep or cows were around ...
... Charles, Graham & Debbie arrived and we broke out the fruit cake! Many photos had already been taken but we had to make the others jealous so the swings were calling. We discussed how it might be possible for me to join them for a little jaunt on the bike in the middle part of the day and I set off to find a suitable spot. I parked at the top of the moors at approx 40 miles and set off to find them. I cycled 4 miles and soon found them, sadly there were a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Storrs Hall Windermere
A Superb Experience
My wife and I spent two glorious nights here August 2006. The room was wonderful, the restaurant amazing and the staff very professional - particularly so with the restaurant Maitre D'. There is simply nothing to criticize - highly recommended.
We have just returned from a one night stay at Storrs Hall. This hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 1 - when we arrived the television in the room didn't work however, TV was changed with 15 mins no problem. Room was very large and well appointed. The room could have done with a larger opening window as it was very hot mind you the outside temperature was at least 28+ degrees. Bed was very comfortable. The grounds and views from the hotel are out of this world. Lovely grounds to walk in. Stay on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate for £210.00. Before we went we thought that this was overpriced however, after the stay we felt it justified the price. Evening meal was superb - good choice on the menu and a very comprehensive wine list. Breakfast was of an equal quality - no buffet (horray!!) everything was cooked to order. A wonderful weekend stay!
Our second stay at Storrs, mainly for the stunning location on the edge of WIndemere. We had a lake view room which was a lovely treat. We didn't have dinner as it is expensive but well worth it if you fancy a treat. The breakfast was delicous. We didnt take our dogs this year as a cost of £30 was too steep. I love Storrs but it is expensive, well worth it though for a treat.
Had a one night stopover at the Storrs. Staff were very friendly and helpful from booking in to leaving. The Hotel was quiet, especially given it was half-term but the place still exuded a certain atmosphere. Food was lovely, though not overboard on choice, and the wine was fine. We paid extra for a feature room and were not disappointed with the vista from the windows. Yes, there is the odd sign of wear and tear but this does not detract from the ambiance of the place. Would return.
Your first impressions may be of slightly faded decor, but after a long weekend of excellent service and good food the lasting memory is of an overall well above average small country hotel.
We have just arrived back from a trip to Storrs Hall. It was a birthday treat for me and I was expecting Luxury, Luxury, Luxury. The first thing that I found disappointing was the room. We had booked a luxury room which I was expecting to be fab but how wrong I was. The room itself was a decent size with a seating area. The bathroom was fine with nice bath and shower. But we had two single beds pushed together with blankets (we prefer a quilts, this was a mistake we were told on checking out,we should of had a double bed). There were stains on the wall were it looked as though it had rained in and no lake view. These things were not too bad and we went out to Bowness for a meal. Things only started to get annoying when we decided to go to bed. Our room (room 10) was directly over the bar an I had to endure the noise till 01.45hrs with the smell of cigarette smoke drifting up into our non smoking room. Then when I finally got to sleep was woken by the sound of hovering outside our room. Breakfast was nice though and a walk around the grounds lovely. To sum it up a lovely hotel but disappointed in the rooms, I have stayed at nicer for less money.
The good points: the location is superb, the hotel sits on a very nice plot on the banks of Lake Windermere and the views are great. Downstairs has the feel of a reasonably nice country house hotel, the food is excellent.
We stayed at this hotel very recently and i was very impressed. We got what we paid for and more and would certainly reccommend this hotel to all.
A Beautiful Hotel, A Real Treat.
The most impressive Georgian Mansion, set in own grounds with the most spectacular views over lake Windermere.
The Hotel is only 3 star, can not understand why is not 5 Star. It is pure luxury. The staff are great, the food fabulous, it has 2 red rossetts, Its not Cheap, but its well worth it.
For this sort of cost, certain levels of expectation must be met, sadly this wasn't the case. We arrived as part of a wedding party taking over the entire hotel - a situation Im sure they are more than used to. On the Friday night after the local pub had closed, we piled back to find only one member of staff manning the front desk and the bar this meant we waited over half an hour to be served. At breakfast the next day, which we took with the groom, we had to ask 4 times for the tea and toast to be brought to the table, and one of the group who asked for yoghurt and fruit had just the fruit delivered with no mention of the missing yoghurt. I could continue to list individually insignificant events that at an averagely priced hotel could be seen as acceptable, but that is not at a hotel that prices itself at the top of the market.
