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...

Very late last second booking and space was available. Welcoming hosts, reasonable size room with magnificent views over the hills behind. Good breakfast and mostly calm stay. The only little nagging thing was the down pipe from the toilet of the room above, I like babbling brooks, but the falling sounds of water in the down pipe is not it.... More

Everything here was of very good quality. Our hosts were only too pleased to look after our needs. Sited on the edge of Grasmere but only a 5 minute walk to the centre. We would have no hesitation in staying here again. The price is not cheap but probably reflects Lakeland in season.

Our stay here was excellent. The owners Karen and John are charming people who can't do enough to please you. We will certainly be staying there again when visiting the Lakes. Breakfast was really good and different sizes of food were accommodated for.

Everything we want in a B&B – comfortable, clean, bright rooms (glorious views from not one but two windows!) and the quintessential English breakfast including hot crisp toast and great coffee. John and Karen are so friendly and helpful, whether guests are first-time visitors to the Lakes or old hands happy to compare notes on favourite places. Undisturbed by traffic... More

Just back from a 2 night stay at Raise View. It's a couple of years since I was there but as far as I'm concerned it's still the best B&B in Grasmere, if not the Lakes! I had my Mum with me - she was in Wordsworth at the front of the property while I was in Rothay at the... More

John and Karen were fabulous hosts for our annual golf trip The atmosphere and warmth of their welcome made us feel very special. The quality of the accommodation and the eye to detail throughout Raise View are well worth the experience. I have no hesitation in making a recommendation.
