Absolutely top notch! Enchanting facility, sumptuous breakfasts, caring attention to every detail... and the Hodgsons are so friendly... The veranda room is superb... If you want wonderful memories, this is the place to get them!

After a very bad year we decided it was time to get away for a few days. Having stayed at the Walker Ground Manor back in 2001 just after Dougie took over we thought it would be just the ticket for a short break. We booked the Front bedroom again with the four poster bed and huge on-suite bathroom and... More

We had the Verandah Room, or annex. It was fantastic. With views of the gardens through the two large French windows, a waterfall outside the side window, and a verandah where you could sit and relax, the room was unique. A large comfortable bed still left plenty of space. The bathroom was finished to a very high standard and even... More

What more can I say, superb!! Amazing hosts, beautiful house everything catered for if you have forgotten anything, nothing is too much trouble and very comfortable. The 4 poster room is huge, comfortable and excellent value for money. The cake is superb as is the breakfast, will definitely stay again!

On arrival we were greeted with tea and the most delicious victoria sponge! We were staying in the veranda room so we had complete privacy and with a lovely bottle of red wine we were able to enjoy the tranquillity of the setting. Breakfast was wonderful and set us up for a good walk up the Old Man of Coniston!... More

This was our second time staying at the Walker Ground Manor, it was just as lovely as we remembered it. We stayed in the verandah room as our dog could stay there too, in the porch. I agree with everything in the previous review. Everything was perfect, the room and bathroom spotless with everything you could wish for, perfect breakfasts... More

We had walked past Walker Ground Manor several years ago and thought it looked a lovely building. Having read good reviews, we decided to spend a weekend there in the picturesque village of Hawkshead. Dougie was there to greet us and give us a tour of the beautiful building. We had booked the front 4-poster bedroom. The room was fabulous... More
