Recently spent a week at Hassness the room I had been allocated was lovely very homely and the the cleanliness was second to none. The meals were fantastic, Brian and Carole go out of their way to ensure your dietery needs are catered for, Ruby,s cakes are absolutely yummy. Can't wait to go back again. Well done Hassness House.

This really is the place to go to get away from it all. No TV or mobile signal....Brilliant! (do have Wi-Fi) Superbly situated to walk some of the most stunning hills in the UK. Food excellent and hospitality faultless. And a special thanks to Mike for guiding us around the summits.

Stayed on 4 night Ramblers Holiday and really enjoyed it. Rooms are not "en-suite" but bathroom is just across the Hall and it is not a problem. Carol and Brian keep a very well run and very clean establishment. Views from the hotel are stunning and food is excellent. No mobile phone signal or TV at the Hotel, but it... More

Unparalleled views from all guest bedrooms, comfortable accommodation, lovely, home cooked food and right in the heart of Wainwright country so a perfect base for walking. The lack of en-suite facilities is more than compensated for by the unbeatable location. Don’t let it put you off. The showers are hot and powerful and there are plenty of them.

This is a fantastic place to come and put the stresses and strains of modern life behind you. A large country house that was converted into a hotel some years ago, there is a whiff of the hostel here as many of the rooms are smallish twin beds with a shared bathroom. But that in some ways is part of... More

Had a single room which was nice, clean, comfortable with excellent views. Shared bathrooms were not a problem and had superb power showers and the house itself was always very clean and... More

Stayed here with a Walking Group. Fantastic location, wonderful food, lovely hosts (thank you Brian, Carole and Ruby). Although the 'facilities' are shared, there were never any queues (!) and the power showers are awesome! This is a really fabulous Country House and absolutely perfect as a base for fell walking in the North Lakes.

Great house, fantastic hosts, delicious food (& cakes), amazing setting, tranquil escape! Offers an escape from the pressures of everyday life, no TV, no phone signal and limited wifi. Shared bathrooms, but plenty of them so not a problem. Eating is at set times which is a little off putting if you want a lie in, but the food and... More

Spent a wonderful 5 days here on a Ramblers Walking Break. The location is stunning, away from it all and a to die for panorama across Buttermere to Haystacks ridge. Food is top notch, staff are very friendly. Will go again
