The Country House is gorgeous, the room (No 4) beautiful and the Hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming. Tucked away in the most serene setting, you must stay here! We will definitely be returning.

My wife and I recently chose West Vale as our base for a weekend in the lakes and it was superb! As we were unsure of our arrival time, we booked two of the owners' platter meals for our first evening. These were served to us in the spacious lounge by a roaring log fire and washed down with an... More

Yet again the west vale ticks all the right boxes. Lovely welcoming owners, impeccable rooms and delicious breakfasts. Two great pubs just a stones throw away. Beautiful walks and Ambleside a short drive away. :)

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.
