Review on Ees Wyke Country House

Standing proud above the still waters of Esthwaite and close to the touristy Beatrix Potter trail in the nearby village, this handsome Georgian house still boasts connections with the children's author, since it was the good lady's holiday home.

Current owners Richard and Margaret Lee have sensibly left well alone as regards décor and style, and the whole place is done out with a sense of smartly restrained good taste. Elegant furnishings abound and the mood is totally relaxed.

Fixed-price dinners are served the plush dining room, which has lovely views across the grounds. The menu changes daily and it's in the classic country house mould. A typical meal might begin with confit of duck with maché leaves and vinaigrette before courgette and Parmesan soufflé. After that, there's a choice of main courses – perhaps pan-fried noisettes of local lamb with wine jus and a hint of garlic or grilled monkfish wrapped in pancetta and thyme. Desserts could range from steamed lemon sponge with custard to a chocolate truffle 'tear' with raspberry coulis, and finally there are Cumbrian cheeses to round things off.
