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

Brilliant, our number one B&B Definitely the best B&B we ever been. We’ve been there for 6 nights. We’ve got a very warm welcome. Our opinion you can’t find a better B&B in Lake District. Sue and Richard are wonderful host. You got a lot information about walking and other things about the Lake District from Sue or you will... More

No negatives here- great location, very helpful friendly owners, delicious food with excellent choice of cooked breakfast. The garden is lovely and so peaceful; if too cold to sit out the conservatory looks out over it. Everything spotlessly clean and very comfortable.........plus just a 5 minute walk into the village with choice of pubs for evening meals. Hope to return... More

There is the limit 5 stars. What a fabulous set up and certainly would not raise a single complaint as there was nothing with which to find fault. Rooms superbly appointed. Views are fantastic. The sounds are just superb .... Oh that is the countryside and generally quiet. Handy for the village pleasant stroll down the hill, suitably fuelled in... More

Sue made us very welcome upon arrival and gave us a summary of the hotel and rooms over a nice cup of tea and cakes. She went into more detail when we were in our room (Verandah Room) and we found everything to be as expected. The room was warm and the large double bed comfortable. The bathroom was absolutely...

Five star food and accommodation are a given at this friendly, well-run BB, where everything is crisp, clean and comfortable. Enjoy the warm welcome from the charming owners Richard and Sue and the splendid breakfasts. The problem you will have is summoning the will to leave the grounds. The gardens are beautiful, with a lovely waterfall. We sat and enjoyed... More

Just returned from overnight stay at Walker Ground Manor. Idyllic location with lovely short walk into Hawkshead village and various walks from doorstep including Grizedale forest, Tarn Hows and Latterbarrow Fell. Sue and Richard were very personable, welcoming and friendly hosts and had colluded with our son to arrange special anniversary treats at very short notice. The house and grounds... More
