Alison on reception was so welcoming and warm in her approach I felt like I had made a friend..she talked us through the offers of bed... More

This was our second visit to the hotel following an enjoyable stay 12 months ago. The staff were excellent, all very welcoming. I booked by telephone rather than email and this enabled me to chat to the owner and eventually sort out a better deal. It is good to have the bed breakfast and evening meal as the dinners are...

Enjoyed every minute of our time at Ravenstone, the accomodations were excellent, the room spacious and well appointed, the food, both morning and event excellent, and the location very convenient for the northern Cumbria area. If there was one complaint, it was the creaking floors above from the owners or managers quarters, who apparently had to rise early to attend... More

We recently got married close to Ravenstone Manor and some of our guests stayed here over the course of the weekend. We arranged to have a BBQ the day after the wedding so that we could spend some more time with our guests in a more relaxed setting. To say that they went beyond our expectations is an understatement! The... More

Just returned from a Living Social offer this weekend. Excellent value for money. Would return and pay full price (its that good!) We stayed in a room at the front on the second floor in a standard room which has everything you would expect in a 4* hotel. The view from the window was amazing. The hotel itself has history,...

We have just returned from a 2 night stay using a living social voucher and it was a very pleasant stay. Our room was small but very clean, I found the bed and pillows too soft but for two nights it didn't really matter. Hotel itself was very well presented, extremely clean but quite dark as it was Edwardian in... More

Just returned from our second delightful stay - again with four close friends - and the Ravenstone lived up to our high expectations. While Cherin and Kim are very much hands-on owners, their presence and that of their lovely staff is never intrusive - just warm, welcoming and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble for them and the little touches... More

We have just returned home from a short break in the Lakes staying at Ravenston Manor. Everything about the stay was excellent. The room was beautiful with great views across the lake and the bed was comfortable and clean. Our breakfast and evening meal was lovely. Lots of choice, especially more myself being ceoliac and usually struggling to make sure... More

We booked a 2night weekend break in the ravenstone manor for my wife's birthday. We booked the spa room which was very comfortable, clean and had a jacuzzi which came in very handy after walking to the peak of skiddaw. The walk started from the grounds of the hotel and has tremendous views hard work but worth the effort. The... More

I had a 2 night break at Ravenstone Manor. It was very comfortable and I had a much needed rest. The staff were exceptionally kind and helpful. I only had dinner one night but the food was really delicious. I had a small single room as I was travelling alone, but it was perfectly big enough for me and I... More
