It was my partners birthday and after sending an email to the owner (Mike) they presented a tasty chocolate desert with a candle as requested. The food is excellent, the staff are excellent and the hotel room was amazing with a great view over the Lake District. I... More

Just spent 2 nights / 3 days at the Ravenstone lodge, celebrating my mothers 70th birthday, and we couldn't have wished for a more friendlier, comfortable and welcoming hotel. The owners and all the staff made our stay so memorable, it was like we were staying with friends/ family. We ate in their restaurant both nights and the food was... More

Stayed here for my birthday weekend and was dissappointed having read the reviews. We were given the wrong room and had to settle for the one mistakenly given to us as the accommodation was full...so we did not have the view we expected. The member of staff booking us in was a bit 'matter of fact' about their error which... More

Staying at ravenstone lodge was the perfect start to our holiday in the lakes. Mike and all his staff, were extremely helpful and friendly. The food was out of this world, thanks to the chefs James and Val. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody, and we will be definitely returning. Thanks guys for making our stay...

Having booked I then received a welcoming e-mail from Mike,our host for the weekend,with some information about the hotel. A lovely touch and indeed... More

This is one of those place where you could enjoy the food and a drink on the terrace and just look at the mountain landscape of the lake district with all its charm. Sheep, horses, green hills and in our case sunshine. The food was amazing, and it was great to sit outside and enjoy a walk through the landscape... More

I travel a lot and all over the world and rarely do I find as good of service as we had here. The owner, Mike, was an amazing host and the entire staff was extremely attentive and pleasant. The chefs were amazing and the view is wonderful. We stayed in two different rooms #1 which was on the back corner... More

What really makes this place is the location, staff and fantastic food. We were made to feel more than welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff were attentive and friendly. We stayed for 2 nights as we were walking the Skiddaw massif. The brilliant location meant that we could walk straight from the door - a real bonus! We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ravenstone Lodge is a converted 19th Century stables & lodge with many original features including the stables themselves which are now the bar. Situated at the foot of Ullock Pike close to Skiddaw with views towards Bassenthwaite Lake and the Northern Fells we are perfectly positioned to explore the Northern Lake District.Ravenstone Lodge is a privately small hotel with just 9 bedrooms and because of this we can provide a uniquely personal service and when you stay with us you are not just a room number but are our guests in the true meaning of the word. Because of this many return time and time again, maybe requesting their favourite room or that a particular dish be put on the menu. Food is very important to us and our philosophy is very simple, top quality locally sourced ingredients cooked to order by our resident chef with sufficient choice to satisfy all tastes.We look forward to welcoming you to Ravenstone Lodge.Mike Cornish - Proprietor ... more   less
