“A great b&b with warm reception, home cooking and super views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

We stayed here on our recent Coast to Coast walk. This is definitely one of the best stays we had. Christine greeted us with home cooked cakes and a carafe of coffee. The room was a good size and in spite of the main road was very quiet as it faced the back - excellent views too towards Fairfield. Good to have fresh fruit and home mixed muesli. There is also plenty of information and a Wainwright scrapbook. As we had good weather the next morning we did a major deviation to the C2C and walked straight from the small lane round the back of the house up to Stone Arthur and then over Fairfield and St Sunday Crags to Patterdale - a super walk best on a good day (one easy craggy outcrop to negotiate after Fairfield).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2010

Stayed here as part of our Coast to Coast walk in June 2010. I really loved this B&B. Grasmere is a beautiful place and although West View is a little out of the centre and on a main road, it's a great place with lovely views across the hills. Christine was welcoming, helpful and attentive. We got homemade cake on arrival and home made biscuits in the room. The room was clean and well equipped. Christine recommended that we eat at the nearby Travellers Arms where we had an excellent meal. She also had lots of useful information on the area and other eating options. Breakfast was really nice including her own mixture of granola and freshly baked bread. I would definitely go back and stay there for another holiday.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

West View is situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Grasmere village and is a beautiful old cottage with two guest rooms. Ours was the smaller of the two but was still a good size and had a stunning view of the fells that the cottage backs on to. The ensuite is compact but well kitted out and there were not only tea/coffee making facities but also home-made biscuits, thoughtfully provided by our host, Christine.

Breakfast in the morning was tasty, well-presented and set us up for the day - homemade granola, fresh fruit, freshly-baked bread and, of course, a traditional cooked selection.
