An imposing Victorian former girls’ boarding school, perched above the sands seven miles from Ravenglass. Calder House is now a charming, old-fashioned, well-run seaside hotel with good beers, well priced and well chosen wines, and a competitive and inviting menu. Great value and a real throw back to the Edwardian era.
