My daughter and I stayed here while attending a family wedding literally across the road from How Foot Lodge. Kate was very welcoming and attentive and I was impressed that she knew each of her guest's names when they came down to breakfast. The house is warm and comfortable and the rooms are very spacious - the only slight niggle... More

Was recommended to stay here and it didn't disappoint. Kate our host made us very welcome. We stayed in the deluxe suite with our own sitting room, it was clean,warm and inviting. The bed was memory foam which was bliss. The little touches, a jug of milk in the fridge, warm fluffy towels and quality bedding along with the best... More

I stayed in How Foot earlier this Autumn, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was good, and the cooked breakfast was excellent, the owners were also very friendly. The location, just off the main road between Ambleside and Keswick is excellent, and the centre of Grasmere is only a few minutes walk away.

Wonderful warm welcome from Kate with spots to put our wet boots etc. without having to ask. Large spacious room with big heater for our wet clothes and the nicest thing was our bag was delivered right to our room so we did not have to lug it up the stairs. Comfy beds but duvet a bit heavy for a... More

How Foot Lodge is just outside of Grasmere village, but only a 5 min walk in. It is actually a few metres from Dove Cottage. There is plenty of parking (which is good for Grasmere) Kate and Mike are great hosts, there when you need them but leaving you with enough privacy to feel like you are at home in... More

Impressive lodge, a short walk outside Grasmere, close to Wordsworth's cottage. Lady of the house very welcoming. Very tasteful accommodation throughout. Spacious bedroom with large comfortable bed, good bed linen and a sofa. Beautifully cooked breakfast. Outstanding value for money.

This is such a lovely place. Kate the owner is so welcoming and her breakfasts are fantastic. We stayed again in Room 2, a large comfortable room with a fantastic view , even a glimpse of the lake. The bed and pillows are very comfortable and we had two great nights sleep. The walk to Alcock Tarn starts just behind... More

Perfectly located, lovely clean and spacious room, good shower, excellent breakfasts, really friendly and welcoming hosts. How Foot Lodge is the best B&B I've stayed in in the Lake District. Highly recommended!
