Rooms are comfortable and ensuite. The nature of the property means that they are all different. There are two rooms specifically for people on wheelchairs. The breakfasts are plentiful and freshly cooked to order. Packed lunches are provided. The evening meals are three course and excellent, with a chance to purchase wine to drink with the meal. When I was... More

Having visited Glenthorne to use it's conference room facilities on several occasions, last weekend I stayed for the first time. It has recently had a bit of work done in the reception area but nothing to take away from the character and charm of this beautiful building in a stunning area. The room was a little snug but very comfortable... More

just go back from a 2 night stay. This was my first trip to Glenthorne after hearing about it for years and it surpassed expectations. It is beautifully situated - easy walking into the centre of Grasmere but in a tranquil spot ideal for a stroll in the valley or a longer walk up Helm Crag or through to Langdale.... More

Being 5 minutes walk form Grasmere village, Glenthorne is ideally located for walks of 15 minutes to 7 hours from the doorstep. Regular buses from the station at Windermere serve Grasmere village In all of the ten visits we have never been disappointed. The welcome and atmosphere are remarkable. Sharing meals at tables in groups of six ensures stimulating company... More

We returned to Glenthorne for a weekend break after a couple of years. It has had a re-vamp, with lovely light and airy common rooms. The rooms were clean and comfy; they have one room that allows dogs and it is perfect, with its own door outside. The staff are friendly and professional. Dinners and breakfast are family style, with... More

Completely agree with the previous reviews. Wonderful setting, lovely grounds, delightful walk into Grasmere, free afternoon tea and cakes, comfortable rooms, secure bike storage shed, very pleasant staff. It's not your average Guest House or Hotel but doesn't pretend to be either. It is run by the Quakers remember. Hence, the clientèle are not your average Hotel guests and breakfast... More

This property is in a wonderful setting just outside Grasmere. The grounds are extensive with beautiful views of the hills in every direction and a farm with sheep on one side. Afternoon tea and cakes is offered to all guests free of charge. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Very pleasant staff.

My wife and I stayed at Glenthorne in early May. It's a great location but they could do so much better with imagination and effort. Breakfast was a strict half hour from 8.15 to 8.45. Eggs were only made a certain way on one day and not another. Staff seemed bored. I'm a Quaker but you really don't always have... More

Dear Simon, Thank you for your review. I am sorry we didn't live up to your expectations. Unfortunately we are a Guest House and as such don't have the resources to be as flexible as a hotel, or the facilities to be a care home, although we are disabled friendly. As we are a Quaker establishment, it is customary to... More
