Difficult to find anything less than 100% positive about our nights stay. The welcome was as warm as we have had anywhere on the C2C, the room (although not ensuite) was very comfortable and the whole ambience about the house is what we hope for every time we make a booking. Tea is served with fresh (not UHT) milk and... More

My husband and I stayed here on our C2C journey. We telephoned the farm as not sure where to go once in Grasmere and were offered a lift from the centre. This was great as I had been suffering with a bad knee all day. We were given a warm welcome with homemade cake in the guest lounge. Our room... More

Arrived after a wet days walk to a warm hospitable welcome. Our wet waterproofs were hung up by the fire to dry. Drying boots is more problematic and is not the only place where this is a problem. Even in the hottest of drying rooms we were still pulling on wet boots in the morning. The bed was comfortable and... More

Town Head Farm is an extraordinary building with impressive Jacobean woodwork in the rooms used by guests. The proprietor was in many ways very welcoming and visitors have use of a comfortable lounge with a stove, whcih she kindly lit as it was cold and wet (in August)! She also provided home made cake and tea and coffee facilities in... More

Beautiful location, clean and very characterful old farmhouse, delicious sticky coffee cake on arrival, and very tasty breakfast, served unexpectedly and totally beyond call of duty at our very early start time. Excellent stay. Would recommend.

After a lazy day visiting Grasmere, because we were rained out of our walk, Town Head Farm was the perfect place to spend the night. Jackie helped us right from the start getting our clothes dried out, having tea for us, etc. The house is beautiful, built around 1700. Breakfast was great and we headed off on our next day,...

We stayed at Town Head Farm for a night here on the coast to coast walk. The room was very pleasant, tastefully decorated, overlooking a lovely garden, and Jackie had placed a posy of fresh flowers in it. Breakfast was good and the welcome warm. It is a short walk into Grasmere, and we got a taxi back from dinner,... More

Fresh flowers in this house, AND the bathroom, add a special touch to this already lovely B & B. We loved the light, bright upstairs rooms overlooking a terrace, flower filled garden and southwards with valley and fell views towards Grasmere. Fresh crisp linen, comfortable beds and handbasin in room; we shared an adjacent huge bath room with shower and... More
