After a very wet day on day 3 of the Coast to Coast we arrived at the west view guest house. It is a little way out of the main part of Grasmere, however it is only a short detour off the route. Christine is an excellent host, welcoming us with homemade cakes and tea on arrival. Our room was... More

We only stayed at West View for one night but we absolutely loved it. We arrived later than planned but Dennis still stayed up late to welcome us to the house. The room was cosy, clean and had everything that we needed plus lovely home made biscuits! The full english breakfast was lovely (as was the vegetarian version) and the... More

We stayed here for one night while walking the Coast to Coast. We had a lovely welcome from Christine and enjoyed her home baking. There was paper for our wet boots and we were able to hang up our wet clothes to dry. Our room was charming, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The sitting room was also comfortable and a... More

Christine welcomes you perfectly in her nice house, only a few hundred meters from Grasmer touristic center. Easy to find on the main road with a convenient small but private car park. Room is large, well equipped, very clean and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom is also with all what we need Christine cooks a full English breafast well... More

West View is one of our favorite places on the C2C - or any time we visit the UK! Christine and Dennis could not be nicer hosts and will provide anything you could possibly need (and over the many years we have stayed there, we have needed MANY things all of which have miraculously appeared!) Wonderful breakfasts, homemade bread, and... More

Stayed here on the C2C I think at the same time as the couple returning from Inverness. We rated this as one of the best places to stay on the C2C. A great welcome,very kind and helpful. Food was great and nice towels. I would stay here again definitely.

We stayed at West View last year when we did the Coast to Coast, and when we were looking for somewhere to break our journey from Inverness this year, it was an obvious choice. We were made to feel so welcome, with tea and cake as soon as we arrived, and home made biscuits and fresh milk in our lovely... More

My Dad and I stayed here while we were walking the Coast to Coast. Grasmere is a lovely village with really pretty shops and great places to eat. The West View B and B is a short walk from the main village centre and is very close to various eating places. When we arrived at West View we were made... More

We'd had a lovely days walk over Helm Crag and could see our B&B nestled in front of Fairfield most of the way down into Grasmere. OK so it's on the edge of town but this is no bad thing. It's just a gentle leg stretch to walk into town for a beer and an evening meal and it does... More

A return visit as I think this b & b is really special . Nothing is too much trouble . The rooms are lovely and the welcome after a days walking just what you would hope for. I love the home made cakes, cookies & jam.
