A great breakfast, the full English was scrumptious, and so much to choose, it catered for all tastes. We took afternoon tea in the lounge on a very wet afternoon, and wow, can Dee bake! It was...

Just had a wonderful 3 night stay here, celebrating our wedding anniversary. Dee and Glynn are very welcoming hosts with great attention to detail. Beautiful house, very comfortable, spotless room and bathroom with nice little touches. Wonderful choice of breakfast - can recommend the full English. Good job there are so many beautiful walks to walk it off!

Glynn & Dee were the perfect hosts at this lovely Country House set in an idyllic location overlooking local pastures & picturesque woodland scenery. We were offered an upgrade to a Junior Suite which was well worth... More

Just had a brilliant five day stay at West Vale Country House. The hosts were most accommodating going the extra mile to make our stay more memorable, the breakfast was superb and covered every taste and I would recommend the lemon mousse mmm mmm! Bedrooms were spacious and bathrooms modern and all spotless. Will definitely stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away in Far Sawrey, staying at the West vale country house. The guest house was beautiful, set in a lovely area in the lakes. The hosts were brilliant, making us feel very welcome. We didn't arrive until late Friday night-which wasn't a problem. The breakfast provided was ideal-great for setting you up for a long... More

We booked a day or two before arriving and stayed for five nights. The room and bathroom was everything you could want. The hosts are very friendly and most accommodating. They were more than happy to pass on advice about where to go and what to see. The breakfasts were to die for!! I have never wanted to eat as... More

We booked the West Vale Country House about two weeks before we stayed. The owners were very welcoming and very helpful if you needed anything or local information. The whole venue is very welcoming and the rooms very clean, with all you need. We had a very good choice of breakfast although it would be nice if breakfast went on... More
