NB - this establishment is actually called the Glenthorne Quaker Centre and Guest House.
The guest house is located a 5 minute walk from Grasmere on Easedale Road. There is a large car park, which is always worth an extra star in the Lake District as far as I'm concerned. You can easily walk from the property to the Easedale valley and Helm Crag etc. The food was better than I expected - good variety and very tasty. Meals are taken at tables of eight. There is a large sitting room with books and board games. All the staff were very pleasant. My room was very clean and well maintained, but fixtures and fittings were on the dated side. This is not the venue for a luxury or romantic break but it is a great venue for a walking holiday, with hearty food provided after your day in the hills.

We stayed in 14 B&B's and lodges, each for one night, during our Coast to Coast walk in autumn 2009. Winner was the Keld Lodge. At the bottom was Pottergate in Richmond. Is it fair to rank on the basis of one night? Maybe not, but first impressions sometimes mean a lot. Glenthorne is a Quaker lodge, very quiet, mellow, with a number of "mature" guests. Our group was a bit younger and a bit more lively. Beautiful grounds, relaxing, clean room, modest breakfast, within walking distance to Grasmere but far enough away to avoid the tourist buses and get away from the beautiful-town-turned-ugly. Nice accommodation but nothing outstanding

We have just returned from a weekend at Glenthorne. It provides a real 'home from home' with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and is well run by helpful and attentive staff. The food was excellent and although there was only a limited menu for the evening meal they were willing to accomodate different dietary requirements. Glenthorne is located on Easdale Road within 5 minutes walk of Grasmere and with easy access to the surrounding hills and wonderful views from the large gardens. Those seeking 4 star luxury with plasma tvs, wifi, mini bar and spa treatments may be disappointed but for those of us looking for accommodation that is comfortable, well maintained and good value Glenthorne is ideal!
