My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful stay in this idyllic, peaceful setting which had every ingredient to please the most discerning of guests: comfortable, tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean accommodation; beautifully manicured garden with its own babbling brook, waterfall and woodland; delightfully fresh, plentiful and lovingly cooked breakfasts; spacious guest facilities for all weather and seasons and the...

Had the pleasure of staying with a couple of mates for a few days walking, eating and drinking. Sue was a fab host and very helpful with advice and directions etc. The room was super comfy and super clean. We had the family type accommodation, which meant we had two rooms and shared en suite facilities. Bathroom and shower excellent.... More

Directions led us in as it is tucked away. Garden room was nice and large with a lovely bathroom. The bath and bath salts welcome after busy days. We could store our bikes in a secure shed and cycle into Grizedale forest from the b&b. Great location for walking and mtb. Short walk to the village pubs. Sue and Richard... More

Just back from a two night stay at Walker Ground Manor to celebrate our wedding anniversary..... SOooo wish we had had longer! Carefully researched beforehand and of course was, as ever, heavily influenced by Trip Advisor reviews. Generally prefer great B&B accommodations over soul-and-characterless hotels and have stayed in some excellent ones therefore Walker Ground had a benchmark to live... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a UK road trip on our motorbike. The Lake District is great for biking! Sue, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. The house and garden are beautiful and full of traditional character. It is perfectly located for walking and the village pubs and shops. The Queens Head and The Sun... More

I have just spent 2 nights at Walker Ground as part of a short walking break with an old school friend. This is a fantastic place to stay especially if you want to be away from the more busy nearby towns such as Ambleside. The rooms were beautiful and spotless, the bathroom was vast and the house is quiet and... More

A great location a few minutes up the lane from Hawkshead. Some lovely walks from the house in all directions . Great breakfast, very welcoming hosts and superb pubs to choose from in the village as well as very interesting NT properties.

Excellent stay and very helpful hosts. The eggs are perfect and well worth the award they won for them. Short walk to some great pubs. Will definitely be coming back and might even make a detour to the area just for the stay. Thanks!

This is a beautiful place. Sue and Richard are lovely hosts and will make you feel very welcome. The location, the house, the gardens and the hearty breakfasts (with eggs from their own chickens!) are all first rate. They are very knowledgeable about the area and will provide info on local walks etc. Hawkshead is a delight, with some friendly... More

My husband and I brought his 94 year old mother to Hawkshead on a search for her roots. Sue and Richard were helpful in so many ways! Richard even arranged a meeting with the Vicar of the local church to help us with our search! The Manor is like something out of a book. The rooms were so lovely, and... More
