4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This review is just for the hotel. I have reviewed the hotel restaurant separately. This hotel is in a building partly built in the late 1600s and partly built in the early 1800s. It looks it. Our room was extremely spacious but very "uniquely" laid out. It was necessary to continue to duck (I am 6'2") at all times walking... More

My wife, two 5 year old sons, and I, have just returned from 6 lovely days in the Lakes. We stayed at the wonderful Lancrigg Hotel in it's gorgeous location. We booked very last minute, but the extremely helpful and patient Jessica took the booking, and described the room, it's view, and where/how the kids beds would be added. What... More

Lancrigg is in an amazing position in the middle of countryside yet only half a mile from Grasmere. It is in the process of being updated but this is soon forgotten when you meet the wonderful staff. The hotel serves only vegetarian and vegan food but if you're a meat eater don't let that put you off... (I'm not veggie... More

The lancrigg Hotel seems to be out of a historical piece movie the grounds are so beautiful. Lovely and helpful staff. Beautiful rooms with so much charm and wonderful pastoral views. Loved the bath products and one of our best dinners on the C2C. Vegeterians and non-vegeterians in our group loved it! a relaxing haven indeed! We would love to... More

WOW! Of all restaurants we ate during our 17 day Coast-2-Coast trek, this was the best. (Even our resident carnivore was satiated.) If you are vegetarian (even if you are not), this restaurant will NOT disappoint! The service was very good and our meals were excellent. I split an artisan vegetarian pizza and artichoke risotto with my traveling companion and... More

Crawling through the masses in Allerdale and Grasmere one wondered if peace and calm is possible in the Lakes in August. It is, at Lancrigg. An old building with half and half old and new feel, with a fantastic vegetarian menu.

We stayed at this charming hotel while doing the Coast to Coast walk. The setting and grounds are spectacular and the food (mostly or all vegetarian) is imaginative, tasty, and plentiful. I especially appreciated the breakfast offerings, which were a nice change from the bacon/eggs/beans I had every other day of the trip.

We did not stay at the hotel but had dinner in the restaurant. The hotel has a rich history and involvement from William Wordsworth! The dining room is welcoming and has an old-worldy luxury feel about it. The vegetarian menu had great choices for starters, mains and desserts. There are also vegan options on the menu. The Artisan Pizza and... More

I believe that the hotel has just been taken over by new owners. We only booked dinner, so haven't stayed there, but the setting is idyllic. The staff excellent. However apparently the ovens weren't working correctly, and the meal was below par. A huge shame. We did get a discount after complaining.
