We have just had a wonderful short break here. West Vale garden apartment is a perfect place to stay, relax and enjoy this beautiful area. The apartment has a fabulous views over open countryside and the outside seating area is ideal to appreciate these fully. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished and comfortable with everything we needed was provided. There... 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

The room we had... 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

This was booked by my husband as a surprise. It's not all it appears from the pictures. Nice B&b yes , hotel ? Definately not. Upon arrival we were a tad early but were sent away and told to " come back later " this immediately got my back up. If it was a hotel you would have been invited... More

Sorry that Mrs H was disappointed, but to clarify some points. 1. We are NOT and have never a to be a Hotel. We are a B&B/ Guest House. This clearly stated on our Web Site and advertising material. Clearly the guest was misinformed. 2. As the guest has not given her name I cannot comment on her statement of... More

Another fantastic stay at West Vale. We visited for our first ever weekend away as a couple, got engaged here and now returned as newlyweds. As always fantastic service from Glynn and Dee, couldn't be made to feel more welcome and at home. We will definitely return again.

Our stay at West Vale Country House couldn't have been better! Well maybe slightly if we had drier weather but even that didn't matter. Our hosts were welcoming, warm and friendly. Nothing was too much effort and they were on hand to advise about the area, trips, restaurants. West Vale Country House is a lovely boutique guest house and we... More
