The hosts Glynn & Dee are great - no request is too much trouble for them. Our room (Junior Suite on the top floor) was superb -... More

This was our first stay at West Vale Cottage. We were made to feel really welcome and the cottage was furnished to a high standard and was spotlessly clean. The local pub was within walking distance and the ferry to Windermere was a short drive from the Village. The cottage is set in beautiful quiet surroundings and we will definitely... More

It is in a beautiful part of the country. Local town only two miles away with lots of choice for food and drink, the owner recommended the queens head which was a fab find,... More

Excellent location, friendly staff that made us feel welcome and a great award winning breakfast. Venue is well kept and spotlessly clean, rooms are lovely with a modernized, sparkling bathroom providing all mod cons. A great experience on a whole, would stay again for sure.

Myself and fiancée stayed for three nights seeking a comfortable and relaxing stay. The B and B has a secluded feel but in walking distance to various pubs / restaurants and a short drive to hawkshead made it perfect for us. Made to feel really welcome and at home on arrival and throughout our stay with nothing too much trouble... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at West Vale. We booked last minute with booking.com and everything went smoothly. We even got a courtesy call to see what time we would be arriving. The house itself is of a very high standard and extremely clean, our glass of complimentary sherry on arrival went down a treat after our... More

We found that everything about our stay was perfect from our meet and greet to our departure.

The staff took there time to direct us to pubs, towns and tourist destinations when ever we asked. We will definately... More
