As part of my spring break, I enjoyed 3 days of excellent hospitality based at Summer Hill Country House. After a delicious breakfast each morning, I was well placed to explore various parts of the neighbouring countryside such as Tarn Hows and Grizedale Forest. And my cosy room helped to ensure a peaceful and relaxing sleep each night. Summer Hill proved to be the ideal spring time destination!
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find we had made a great choice in staying at this B&B. We are from the US and were doing a 2 week road trip around England and Wales so I randomly picked places to stay by using TripAdvisor. The reviews were spot on for Patsy & Mike's B&B. The house was beautiful, the room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were fantastic. Patsy supplied us with maps for road trips so we knew where to go to see the best scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 3 nights and would love to return if we're ever back in this area.
Mike and Patsy fully deserve the repeated 5 star ratings. We spent just under a week at Summer Hill in early September 2019. A lovely house in a stunning location. A great breakfast to start the day with Tarn Hows and Coniston within confortable walking distance. We suggest using the bus service which stops nearly outside the door. An enjoyable break and highly recommended. Peter & Lesley
What a fantastic place. Came upon it whilst looking for a place to base ourselves for a bank holiday motorcycle tour of The Lakes. Located just outside the village of Hawkshead, it's run by Patsy & Mike who make you very welcome, get there on time and you'll be treated to coffee and cakes and a daily handmade chocolate. Both have a brilliant knowledg of the area, they helped us out with our route planning over the weekend. Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable, Patsy cooks a mean breakfast along with a fruit/cereal/yoghurt choice. Well worth a visit.
Thiis an outstanding place to stay - everything is perfect - from the awe-inspiring views to the tasteful decor, the hospitality of Mike and Patsy and best of all the homemade cakes, chocolates and biscuits which appear magically in your room or are shared with you on arrival. All details have been attended to and Summerhill is an atmospheric old house immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. Breakfast is served in a slate-floored dining room with a huge open fireplace and a wonderful view of the area. The gardens are full of birds, butterflies and bright flowers. The hosts are delightful and the house is well-situated for exploring the area. Hawkshead is an easy drive of a few minutes away where we had two fantastic meals at The King's Head and you must visit the Hawkshead Relish shop selling the most delicious locally-produced chutneys, mustards, jams etc. Thankyou for a great stay. We would love to come back.…
