Visited last year and immediately booked again, was not disappointed and once again had an excellent experience, hospitality second to none, friendly welcome shown around and the room which was the verandah. This is a lovely unusual room being outside with a lovely sitting area in the garden next to a stream, very relaxing, especially with the welcomed tray of... More

Superb location, charming house, spotless and comfortable, delicious breakfasts. All backed up with a warm and friendly welcome. The evening walk down to the village for dinner was one of the many highlights. Can't recommend it highly enough.

After reading the reviews I was expecting something rather special in such a competitive market and in this price range.Perhaps the novelty of staying in a17th century house is the experience. However the verandah room is not that! It is not part of the main house and has to be accessed through a garden and up some steps which may... More

We are rather disappointed by your review, especially as you chose to give only positive feedback on checkout and saved these other points for online observation! I did discussed your requirements and the room very thoroughly with you at the time of booking and full details including photos of our accommodation are available on our website, which I believe you...

Stayed for an anniversary weekend in October 2014. A little difficult to find (although good instructions given), we found this a beautiful, secluded and quiet bed and breakfast. On arrival we received afternoon tea and cake (my partner was supplied gluten free cake which was fantastic). Our room was immaculate, well equipped including beautiful cut crystal glasses and dressing gowns.... More

We booked Walker Ground Manor after looking at many B&Bs online. The 5 stars are well deserved - beautiful location, character house, spotless accomodation in large rooms and an easy few minutes walk into Hawkshead village. Sue and Richard are so welcoming and always had time to chat - tea and homemade cakes were provided as soon as we arrived.... More

We stayed at WGM last year in July and returned again this year for Easter. Richard and Sue who run the business are the perfect hosts from the welcome tea and cake on arrival to help and advise on the local area and always being there to lend a hand if required. The house is very well maintained with many... More

Just returned from the Walker Ground Manor. What a little gem this bed and breakfast is. Located over looking the village of Hawkshead. A short but interesting stroll down hill to the village. The facilities at the b and b are first class. Nothing is any trouble to Richard and Sue. Superb hosts. We stayed in the Veranda room. Beautifully... More
