An excellent place to stay. Sue and Richard make you very welcome from the moment you knock on the front door. We stayed in the front bedroom which was very large with a four poster bed and a huge en-suite. The house dates back to circa 1680, has lots of character and is ideally located for walking on the fells... More

This little gem is hidden away in a peaceful spot yet only a short walk from the village centre. We were welcomed on a cold, wet day with a warm fire and delicious afternoon tea and cake. The room was charming, with crisp bedding on the super comfortable bed and everything that was needed for our stay. Breakfast was generous... More

This is probably our favourite B&B anywhere - certainly in the Lake District. We requested the verandah room as it feels like you are in your own little flat overlooking the lovely garden. The room is extremely cosy and comfortable and has everything you need, and more. You have to walk a few steps to the main house for breakfast... More

We stayed as a couple for 3 nights in November for a much needed rest, the Walker Ground Manor was perfect in every way and amazingly good value. This place I think has 5 stars but it deserves more!! It's beautifully decorated and furnished - our room had a huge 4 poster bed and 2 lovely chairs in front of... More

This was a hotel we used the night after our wedding to split up our journey home. It was tricky to find without sat nav if you don't know the area The hotel itself is very traditional and quaint. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and the room comfortable. I loved all the antique furniture and the decor. It... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us and for your very positive comments, your feedback is much appreciated. We are indeed situated up a small lane in a quiet and beautiful location (whilst still only 5 mins walk from the centre of Hawkshead), I do therefore try my best to ensure guests can find us...

So much praise has been given by previous contributors and it's all true. Hawkshead is a real honey-pot attracting large numbers of visitors (although not in early November) but this B&B is tucked away from the crowds but within quick and easy walking distance of the centre. Sue and Richard made us very welcome proving to be very knowledgeable about... More

Just returned from a couple of nights away at this beautiful B&B . Can't find fault with anything .... The Manor itself is in the ideal location , set above the village providing stunning views. The gardens seem to have every species of tree and we had a tour of the grounds from Richard complete with meeting the hens who... More

A wonderful B&B experience with the most welcoming of hosts in Sue and Richard. Three nights in an exceptional en suite room, the best British breakfasts you can ask for, and wonderful service. Walker Ground Manor is ideally located - just a couple of minutes to walk into Hawkshead itself - one of the nicest villages anywhere, let alone the... More

This was a wonderful and memorable stay. Our seven year old rated this as his favourite place to stay in Europe! Perfect location with a stream running through the garden. Sue and Richard really care about quality and it comes through in every detail.
