Charming old stone house (but aren't they all?) and a welcome sight after our walk from Borrowdale. Good breakfast. Hostess warned us about the iffy wifi, but we had difficulty using it at all in room 3. It would connect in the hallway, then disconnect shortly thereafter in our room. Water pressure lacking for the shower. Comfortable beds. Quiet enough... More

A new word, interesting! Now I realise it means indifferent, yes if demand is high for wi-fi and water that may be so. Low water pressure and thick stone walls present challenges, Superfast broadband has improved the situation and there is plenty of hot water for our baths and showers. We hope that, as you kindly remarked, the good breakfast,... More

Just returned from a weekend in Grasmere, we stayed at Silver Lea and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful house and garden, right next to paths and walks to the fells. Great breakfast and hospitality, Jill has got it just right, the right level of interaction with guests, and free to come and go. Definitely will return for our annual anniversary trip,... More

Silver Lea is located a short walk away from Grasmere's city centre, the city famous for its association with the poet Wm. Wordsworth. We had a nice double room but there was nothing special about it and I thought the 98 pound rate was on the high side. The room amenities provided were only average. The small ensuite bathroom had...

Thank you for your review. Our twin beds are king sized and we use single duvets which we thought were suitable. Must check this out. As a small B&B, we like to provide our guests with a freshly cooked breakfast to start the day. We are flexible and try to meet the needs of our guests as best we can.... More

Silver Lea bed and breakfast is easy to get to for hikers on the Coast to Coast Walk. It's attractive and clean. The single room was heavenly -- appealing, comfortable, and a sparkling bathroom. One window in the single room overlooked a lovely back yard; the side window was above a footpath that goes into the town; I liked having... More

Glad staying with us in Grasmere suited you. This year over 300 C to C walkers have stayed with us, that's a lot of muddy boots. After coming over Greenup Edge, most people are eager to get them off and enjoy a well earned cuppa. My Dyson is very grateful. Good to hear that you enjoyed the village feel and... More

Super place to stay after our Rosthwaite to Grasmere C2C leg. Lovely, large, sunny twin room with en-suite bathroom. Good views of the fells and only a 5 minute walk into Grasmere. Friendly host and good breakfast. Would recommend.

Fantastic place and hosts. Great rooms with plenty of space and comfy chairs to sit and relax. Two minute walk to centre of Grasmere. Our car never moves when we get here handy for great walks. Good choice for breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts just ask!

This was great, so peaceful and such lovely host, free WiFi, great breakfast and a fantastic view. Can't fault the place and a very tranquil rest after the walk, would definitely return for a more leisurely weekend in Grasmere, but if you are doing the C2C then this is the place to stay.

The bed was comfy, the shower was fine, the breakfast was good, the location is very handy - both for Grasmere and for walks including the Coast to Coast. All good. However, I just think you're charging too much for B&B - £84 as opposed to £35 we paid elsewhere during our week in the Lake District. Now I understand... More

As we do not have any single rooms we do offer single occupancy of a double room at a reduced rate. We feel our prices are competitive for Grasmere, infact this has prompted me to check again.

This is a very nice place to stay on the C2C trail. It gives you access to Grasmere just a short walk from town. It is almost ON the trail. The rooms are large and comfortable and the hostess was very helpful. Finding bus schedules for us, then booking a taxi, and keeping our luggage while we walked around town.... More
