Located just next to the river, it's a charming spot in Patterdale. It is really good spot if you are walking through the Lakes District. The Honesty Bar system also creates a very friendly and cosy environment, it almost feels like home.

Stayed last week when on the C2C. Excellent drying facilities which we needed as the weather was very wet. A warm welcome from Ian and Joyce. Good bar facilities, good rooms and interesting history as one of AW's stopping places. Good breakfast and packed lunch and an evening meal available at local pub. Ian very knowledgeable about the C2C.

This is the second time I have stayed at the hotel and on both occasions the welcome has been fantastic. Both times we arrived ripping wet from the walk but Ian had all the wet clothes and boots straight into his drying room and everything was dry the next morning. The bar was extremely welcome! Ian's knowledge and advice on... More

B&B right on the C2C route out of Patterdale. Set up for walkers with a drying room for wet clothes. Boots welcome. Ian and Joyce have walked the trail several times and both are storehouses of knowledge. Ensuite rooms, proper breakfast, lunch items and more available at the honor store downstairs. Dinner available at the nearby While Lion.

Stopped here 4 years ago when Ian was serving terrific food and although he has had to temporarily stop this due to an accident overseas it didn't detract from the visit. The outside has some lovely seating areas to view the wildlife on the river and the self service bar including 3 real ales is fantastic with Ian always around... More

stayed here during our recent coast to coast walk. The owner Ian was very friendly and helpful. Very much geared to walkers, lots of useful advice, a proper drying room for all the wet gear. An honesty bar was much appreciated at the end of a day's walking.

We recently stayed her for two nights while we were on the coast to coast walk. Patterdale was a great place to take a rest day from walking, and the accommodation was excellent. The rooms were comfortable and extremely clean, the bar downstairs was a welcome addition, and the outdoor area down by the river was wonderful. Ian was extremely... More

My wife and I recently stayed here while hiking the C2C. It was a most pleasant and memorable stay. Ian the owner, could not have been anymore accommodating and friendly. We even met his daughter Rachael, who is a C2C legend. This Inn is steeped in history and is the one place that you must stay in if you are... More

We stayed here on our coast to coast trek and from the moment we walked in and were met by Ian we loved it! We stayed in the room used by Alfred Wainwright for many years. Ian was really helpful on many levels, and was a fountain of knowledge about the C2C. What really blew us away however was that... More

We were lucky enough that there was a cancellation at the Old Water View, as this is a popular spot! Ian the owner is absolutely wonderful and very helpful. The Old Water View is visited by many who are doing the Coast 2 Coast walk. The location of this inn, is ideal for these travellers. The B&B is older but... More
