The accommodation has been recently refurbished to a high standard. The rooms are clean, comfortable and fresh. The host is very welcoming and the breakfast is just perfect. The location is close to breathtaking views and many walks. There are 2 nearby pubs serving excellent food.

A great place to stay with Damian pulling out all the stops to make your time there as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Breakfast excellent. We could only admire his attitude in respect of his guests as well as his work ethics. We would definitely recommend West Vale.

The thing about traveling is, you get so busy after you get home, you often don't get around to writing reviews, especially the nice ones. But I would be very sorry not to write the review that this Bed and Breakfast deserves. First off, everything in West Vale Country House is beautifully and recently remodeled. The colors are absolutely lovely--lots... More

The Lake District is full of overpriced, slightly crusty B+Bs where the location, not the quality, justifies the price. West Vale is different. The traditional house has been recently refurbished in a bright and contemporary style. The rooms are bright, the bathrooms modern and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was superb. Damien seems to run the place (cooking, cleaning, managing) singlehandedly... More

Lovely country house with fabulous views, furnished to a very high standard. Lovely and clean. The Cuckoo Brow Inn is just around the corner and a lovely place to have dinner. Ideally situated near to lovely villages.

We had a wonderful time, very clean, recently modernised. Excellent host and owner very friendly couldn't do enough for you, he even took us down to the village as we couldn't get a taxi. Lovely breakfast. Would definitely recommend.
