John and Karen make sure everything is fine and are very helpful. The guest house is immaculate, room on the small side but you want for nothing. View from our room, Jackdaw, stunning. Excellent night's sleep. Breakfast delicious and plenty of it. Highly recommended.

We were walking the C2C and had the rather traumatic experience of being lost and then found by the mountain rescue team. Our next stop was the absolutely wonderful B&B in Grasmere, Raise View Guest House. John was so hospitable and kind. The B&B was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The beautiful décor, we learned, was chosen by his wife, Karen.... More

My sister & I stayed here for 3 nights & had a room looking on to magnificent Helm Crag. The room was immaculate & nicely decorated & the beds were wonderfully comfortable. John cooks a splendid breakfast. The cosy elegant sitting room is a great place to have a drink before dinner. I'll never forget the beautiful views or John's... More

Raise View is a delightful Cumbrian stone-built house with stunning views of the local fells. The welcome is excellent, as is the accommodation. We needed an early room, to change for a wedding, which was absolutely no problem, even though the place was fully-booked. A really friendly, interested couple gave us lots of local tips, a ghreat place to sleep,... More

Whilst the location and rooms are great it's the standards and warm welcome that makes Raise View stand out from the crowd. We took three rooms here recently for a short stay and can't recommend it enough. The breakfast was first class, bedrooms where a good size with all the necessary facilities but the lounge was our favourite, dark, warm... More

This was one best B&Bs which I have stayed in recently. Our cosy room was of a medium size, attractively decorated, comfortable and providied a peaceful nights sleep. The breakfast served was of the standard English variety and our perfect hosts Karen and John were friendly and very helpful with lots of information on local walks etc.

Just back from a two night stay at Raise View, we can certainly understand how it's the number 1 rated B&B in Grasmere. It's ideally situated in a lovely location, the accommodation is really clean and comfortable, breakfasts were great, and John and Karen were so friendly. The next time we're back at Grasmere we'll definitely try to get booked... More

I have stayed here twice while walking the coast to coast trail and both visits have been a delight. The only drawback for a walker is the lack of a bath in the en suite but this is too common an occurrence in B and Bs on this route to affect the rating. The rooms are stylish and comfortable and...
