The conservatory looks out on to a woodland garden where you can bird watch and see the occasional wildlife, this is used for breakfast and is also available to use at other times as well as a terrace for sitting out. We have plenty of walking literature and information. I am always on hand to help anyone who is new to the area with advise or write out an itinerary so your days are enjoyed to the full. Advise on the attractions to visit, lovely walks to do and beauty spots in the area. We have lovely walks from the house and in the surrounding area, many attractions close by. Walking distance to the Lakeside and Haverthwaite steam railway, Lakeland Motor Museum and Cliff Hanger rooms. A short drive from Fell Foot Park, Lakes Aquarium, Holker Hall, Cartmel, ( Cartmel Races) Ulverston ( Laurel and Hardy museum and Cumbria Crystal Glass. A scenic drive to Hawkshead, Coniston and Bowness. Horse riding within walking distance and a good selection of Spa facilities in the area. Also good eating houses in the local area. We have off road parking and storage for bikes. I look forward to welcoming you. Visit my website for more information and the best prices.

I was brought up on a farm in Shropshire, I enjoyed working on the farm, owned my own horses and loved riding. After studying for 2 years at Catering College, I spent my first year working in Switzerland in a large hotel in Berne gaining valuable experience. Back in the UK I headed for The Lake District, which I called my mini Switzerland! Here I worked alongside a very good chef/proprietor of a country house hotel, being left to run the kitchen a few months later with a colleague. I started a family in 1984, and in 1986 we bought Hill Crest, we extended to enable me to set up my own business and in 1993 Hill crest opened its doors as a luxury Bed and Breakfast. I still run Hill Crest with as much passion and commitment as the day I started! I really enjoy meeting people and making sure their stay is perfect in every way. The feedback I receive makes me confident I do. Hill Crest is an interesting house, often called a 'Tardis' as it looks small from the outside and is big within. The cosy guests lounge and conservatory are prefect recreational areas for you to enjoy.
