We had a wonderful stay at Banerigg. Angela and Martin were very welcoming and have a lovely place to stay. The room over looked the lake and everything was very clean and tidy. Angela and Martin have superb knowledge of the local area and were able to advise us on the best places to go/ things to do in the... More

This is my second stay at Banerigg and on both occasions I have felt like I have been very well looked after. Angela and Martin are warm, welcoming and nothing is ever too much trouble. If you need any local knowledge and by local I mean the lake district as a whole! Then both Angela and Martin will be able... More

We had a wonderful stay here, and Angela and Martin have to be the loveliest B&B hosts you are likely to meet. The views over Grasmere are spectacular from the front bedrooms and the place is in within easy access for lots of walks. This is a traditional guest house, not a trendy B&B so do expect to bring your... More

We stayed for two nights in early September and enjoyed a lovely walk from the door of the b&b to the top of Helvellyn. It was great to come back to a hot, powerful shower and a comfy bed. Breakfast was sociable, plentiful and tasty. Wi-fi was free but not the speediest. Angela and Martin have extensive local knowledge and... More

We spent two nights at the Banerigg Guest House in a large, comfortable room. The location was wonderful for walking into Grasmere even though we are not hikers. The breakfast was very good and the wi-fi worked in the room. There is a guest lounge which we appreciated since there was only one very soft and uncomfortable chair in our... More

Returned to the Lakes and Banerigg. This is such a good B&B: warm welcome, great and I mean really great breakfast. Lashings of hot water and high pressure taps/showers just what you need after a hard day on the fells. Comfy beds and clean rooms. Angela and Martin are great hosts who dispense warmth and good advice on places to... More

Enjoyed a 2 night stay at Banerigg as a base for an organised walk of the Roman Road from Brougham Castle near Penrith to nearby Ambleside, from where the group was picked up and bussed to the start. Banerigg is a large lakeside stone house and very much a traditional,comfortable B&B in a very good location on the main road... More

Angela and Martin were very friendly, especially when engaging in conversations about walks and wild swimming, which Martin clearly enjoys and is very knowledgeable about, and gave us some excellent advice. The location was fantastic, partly for the view from the bedroom window, but mostly because it is ideally situated to start lots of walks from. Grasmere village is only... More

Martin and Angela once again made us feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble! The breakfasts are outstanding - you have to try their sausages and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The views from the bedroom out over the lake were spectacular. The only thing that bettered previous stays was the glorious weather. Looking forward to going back... More
