We spent 3 nights here on our way down to Manchester airport to fly home after a month in Scotland. What a fantastic place to stay, quiet, lovely modern room, great hosts, pub up the road, great for walking or relaxing then a quick ferry ride over to Windermere for shopping & sightseeing. Our friends from London surprised us with... More

Lovely quiet location, homely and well cared for surroundings, welcoming hosts, very good breakfast and an great opportunity to relax with a good book in the comfortable lounge area. Local pub is easy to walk to (and from) and the west side of Windermere is a world away from the bustle of Bowness. Highly recommended!

A really pleasant couple of days and nights spent around there Hawkshead area of the Lake District and West Vale Country House was a great place to spend the evenings. From great pre-visit communication to fantastic personal service on arrival. You felt nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. The Cuckoo's Nest Pub up the road was also a... More

The actual hotel is beautifully decorated and cared for, the room was clean and of a high standard, the surroundings speak for themselves! The owners were courteous, welcoming and very friendly. Breakfast was a lovely selection and very accommodating for various tastes. Would absolutely recommend to stay here.

We recently had a 2 night stay at the west vale country manor. We were greeted by the owner who was very welcoming. We had booked a junior suite (room 8) and the room was decorated to the highest standard and the bathroom was superb! Great tranquil location with great views of the countryside. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of... More

Having just returned from a 2 night stay at West Vale I cannot recommend this lovely B&B more highly. We made our booking at very short notice but were delighted with our room when we arrived - we had been upgraded at no extra cost due to a booking issue! We were warmly welcomed by Glynn and Dee and shown... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in a junior suite. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and our room was very comfortable. The bed is the best I've slept in away from home! The design of the room is fantastic with a pleasant seating area and super shower. Breakfast is delicious with a diverse range of options. We particularly... More

Have just spent two lovely relaxing nights at this gem of a B&B. Everything was top quality. The breakfast was exceptional. Although not a hotel, it is possible to get a platter and a bottle of wine in the evening rather than going out. We opted for this and were delighted. The place offers charm, peace and exceptional hospitality. We... More
