Stayed there in Mid June, used as a central base for doing some fellwalking. Upon arrival we were made very welcome, the standard of the room was very good and very clean and despite being located on the main road, traffic noise was almost non-existent. Our room was situated at the back of the house and the surrounding views were... More

I stayed during the first week in May with my fiancé to attend a friend's wedding. The views from the hotel are breathtaking, and Andrea and her family did their best to make us welcome. We enjoyed a terrific breakfast and were waited on by the lady of the house, Nothing was too much trouble, and even before arriving at... More

I stayed at Ivy Dene for 5 nights during the first week of October with my father, as we were mountain hiking in the Lakes. What a treat after a long coach trip from Cornwall! The double room was immaculately presented, calming, warm and beautifully equipped with everything I could wish for, including a huge mirrored dressing area, excellent storage,... More

We have just stayed at Ivy Dene on our way to Scotland. Andrea is the perfect host and deserves to do well. The rooms were spotlessly clean and Andrea makes sure you have everything you need. The breakfast was excellent with a great choice. A really comfy bed and a good shower. What more could we ask for. We will... More

We have stayed at the Ivy Dene before and will do so again. Andrea is a wonderful host and makes sure that her guests are fully catered for and warmly welcomed. The rooms are cosy and spotlessly clean and the breakfast is perfect with a wide choice available. The location is also ideal as it is situated a short walk... More

We stayed at Ivy Dene for 2 nights and would certainly be back again. Reading reviews on here before we had gone we expected a tiny room, and although it was small it was perfectly fine for the pair of us and we didn't feel cramped. We had a nice en suite with a hot shower which again was perfect... More

What a lovely host Andrea was for our recent short stay at her wonderful B&B in the picturesque village of Grasmere. Our bedroom at the back of the house although quite small was extremely comfy,clean with a great shower. It was very quiet even with the bedroom window open all night. The breakfast had a selection of cereals and fruit... More

Stayed here for 3 nights just came home yesterday, we had a great time walking walking in this area. Frankly I could have sat at my bedroom window (room one) all day , the view was to die for. The house is 5 mins from Grasmere and this is a plus as the views aren't restricted by houses and its... More
