We spent a fantastic week in this beautiful cottage. Very tastefully decorated and has a gorgeous log burner which was just the ticket to snuggle up with after a day walking and exploring the lakes. It is set in a lovely quiet village which has a great local pub serving good food. Highly recommended.

A three night stay in the Garden Appartment in February was the most perfect tranquil break we could ask for! The decor was very tasteful and comfortable, with a high level of cleanliness. We had a lovely welcome and were looked after very well despite being separate from the main house. The surrounding area is stunning with many beautiful walks... More

A little bit of luxury in the lakes. Glynn was very welcoming. Stayed in the cottage due to boiler breaking down in hotel. Newly decorated to a high standard situated with beautiful views from the patio. lovely and warm enhanced by the use of the log burning stove. Perfect base for travelling round Ambleside and Grizedale. Lovely pubs in Hawkshead... More

Spent a 4 night stay in mid-November following a recommendation and I can say we were not disappointed. As soon as we parked up, my wife saw a deer in the field in front and we watched for a minute or so before getting out of the car to see Glynn waiting for us at the front door. We were... More

An absolutely fantastic two night stay at West Vale. Glynn and Dee were wonderful hosts and it was truely a home from home. 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!

We have just returned home after a 3 night stay at the West Vale (20-23 Sep 14) & had an absolutely wonderful time. 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
