Said it before, but it bears repeating as achieving this level of top quality consistently is a brilliant achievement... Rooms - immaculately clean, wonderful imaginative door and... More

Raise View House is simply gorgeous. The interior and attention to detail are second to none. The room we stayed in was sumptuous, an extremely comfy bed, gorgeous coffee, a spacious wardrobe and a big chest of drawers. The bathroom was stunning with a beautiful bath and a big walk in shower. The view of the lion and lamb from... More

Lovely couple of nights stay recently at the Raise view house. John and Karen were pleasant hosts with lots of insightful knowledge of local walks and attractions. The house is beautiful and adequate facilities. Would be more than happy to stay again in the future and plan on doing so!

A friend and I had a very enjoyable stay at Raise View. John was a good host, and the location is great - close enough to central Grasmere to make walking in for food or shops very easy, and just far enough out to be away from the coachloads of visitors. It's also a great starting spot for walks up... More

We had a really enjoyable stay while walking the Westmorland Way. An honest friendly greeting met us on arrival. Our room was beautifully appointed. Everything you could want was provided.

Very good indeed. Not cheap but fair value. Clean, tidy and comfortable with an excellent breakfast. The owners were affable and informative, helpful but not intrusive and we would certainly and gladly return.

We have been staying with John and Karen at Raise View House for many a year. Each room is and always has been beautifully and spotlessly presented and the hospitality of the hosts really does make this elegant house a Lakeland home from home. John's famous breakfasts are also unrivalled in our view to set us up for the day... More
