Stayed one night at Walker Ground and had a fantastic experience. We were greeted on arrival by the owner Sue, who showed us round and gave us a potted history of the beautiful 17th century house. Original paneling and floorboards from 1688. Sue also made us a fresh cafetiere of coffee and home made Lemon Drizzle Cake (made with eggs... More

A beautiful 16th century house set in the picturesque village of Hawkshead. Just a 5 minute walk in to the village centre. The room was enormous - very comfy large bed. Likewise the bathroom was huge too. Delicious breakfast options available and very friendly owners.

We walked from the bus, which was a bit of a walk, but well worth it. The immaculate bedroom with antique 4-poster bed and the huge bathroom and long deep bath were all we could wish for. The quaint walk down a cow path through beautiful fields overlooking the village was refreshing. The view was so amazing. Sue served a... More

This was our first trip to the Lake District and we chose this bed and breakfast because of the wonderful reviews we had read before booking. We were very pleased that it lived up to its reputation in every way and we would be very happy to stay here again. We had a warm welcome from Sue with a pot... More

We have stayed at the Walker Ground Manor twice now. It really is a first class B + B. There are three lovely rooms to choose from, all unique with loads of character. The hosts Sue and Richard, can't do enough for you and you are made to feel very welcome from the moment you arrive (tea or coffee and... More

We were made extremely welcome by Sue and Richard. This characterful secluded house is in a lovely setting just a few minutes walk from Hawkshead church. Sue provides wonderful breakfasts with an extensive choice not usually found in bed and breakfast accommodation eg eggs benedict. Spacious room with a four poster bed and top quality bedding meant we enjoyed two... More

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
