There are few accommodations in the Langdale Valley proper. One of the smallest, and most authentic, is this (originally) late 1600s farmhouse, perched above the valley floor with fine views. It is rustic and decidedly not new: the doorways are low, the rooms share toilets and showers. But it is exceptionally generous in space—we had a huge room with two... More

I went off to the Lakes for 2 nights break to have a it of 'me time' away from the stresses of work, family etc. stayed in Robinsons place for the second time, in a comfortable room with amazing views. Vicky makes you feel very comfortable and her breakfast is delicious and sets you up for the day. I especially... More

My third visit to Vicky at Robinson's Place Farm. As usual superb views from a wonderful Lakeland farmhouse in the Langdale Valley. This is an authentic experience of Lakeland hospitality ideally sited on the Cumbria Way. Vicky and family were 'lambing' on this visit and it was delightful to see newly born lambs beginning their life on the hills. Breakfast... More

What a valley,what a place,but above all such a friendly, warm,B and B. Vicky is such a good host, the room was first class and the breakfast even better. For the price so so good,you will not find better value for money in Langdale

I've been coming here for years, now (20 yrs... and counting!) - and this place just doesn't change. And that's the best thing about it!! Vicky is a wonderful hostess - always has been. Great breakfast, wonderful views, clean rooms - this authentic, working farm, B&B is spot on. It's a super nice, down-to-earth country bed and breakfast. If you... More

Been here loads of times for numerous reasons. Just spent new year 2015 there. Lovely, relaxed and consistent. Love the fact it's an original, quirky farmhouse and clearly a family home. Vicki is a hoot and what you see is what you get. No stress and beautiful views. The best breakfasts and the most amazing tomatoes :) My family and... More

Second time I have stayed at Robinson Place. The first time as stop 3 on the Cumbria Way, for which Robinson Place is a perfect stop point, and the second this year with my son for a few days of walking in the central Lakes. Arguably one of the best views in the country, with optimum panorama of the Langdales... More

Stayed for 3 nights in this 'oldie-worldy' farm house. A large, solid farm house with a warming fire in the communal lounge and clean throughout. The beds were very comfy with pocket sprung mattresses (its very rare that we find this as we usually miss our memory foam mattress). A cot was set up for our 2 year old at... More

We knew Lake District was beautiful but nothing prepared us for the view from Robinson's Place Farm front door. The valley is so pretty but the mountains are wild and this B&B sits between. Vicky was funny, helpful, down to earth and gave us great advice about where we might go according to the weather on the day. One day... More

I've been going here for years. Vicky is extremely friendly and always happy to see us, either as a group of lads who drink ale or as a family who are there to enjoy the hills. Best breakfast I've had in ages. Outstanding location. Highly recommended. Dan.
