I stayed here with my husband for 2 nights on the 4th of July and could not have been happier. Glenville House was lovely and we were made to feel really welcome. Pete and Jayne were very friendly and happy to help with any request. We stayed in room 6 which was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was really... More

My partner and I went to the Lake District for a short break staying at Glenville House for three nights. We both really liked it. The décor is tasteful, the room was spacious and the location perfect for touring around. The room had en suite facilities as you would expect nowadays, however there was a separate bath and shower which... More

Our stay was excellent and most enjoyable. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean and the little extras in reception and in the room were lovely. Breakfast was superb. Very well situated and easy to access the Lake and other local amenities. Our hosts were most helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our visit.

Our hosts Jayne and Peter could not have been more helpful and friendly. Little touches like the complimentary cakes on arrival and the lovely little pots of home-made jam at breakfast made this guest house stand out from others. There is a secluded garden where you can sit. The rooms are light and airy and well appointed. We were a... More

We got the last room for night and it was a beauty! Room 1 on the ground floor with a beautiful big bay window. The room was of a generous size and it was nice and clean. The little "extras" at the front door are a nice touch. Breakfast was lovely. The location is fine with a nice downhill walk... More

Greeted at door. Helped with our luggage to our room which was on the top floor. Very clean. Was a very cosy room with all facilities including great home cooked biscuits. Breakfast was huge and delicious. Great location as you could walk to restaurants and lake. Wanted to stay longer but unfortunately was booked out..
