“EVERY WORD WAS TRUE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

I have made a habit of checking all prospective guesthouses on Tripadvisor before I secure a booking and Woodland Crag certainly did not dissappoint. Our rooms were big and with lovley views down the valley toward the lake, the guesthouse was an easy stroll to the village but yet was almost like being on a farm and out of the hub bub of tourists during the day, the breakfasts cooked by Jak and served by Mo were as good as described with so many choices and with all the jams etc in proper glass jars and not little plastic throw aways containers and last but not least our Hosts were utterly charming and a pleasure to stay with. What more can I say? This was a 2nd visit to the Lake District for us but a first for my sister and husband and apart from the foul English weather everything was perfect!! Thank you Mo and Jak - we hope to be back one day.

Room Tip: We had the two front rooms - my sisters one had its own little lounge section with TV - Excellent!

As well as being a good B&B generally they also catered very well with my gluten-free diet (I am coelaic).

Room Tip: Only the obvious one; a view of the lake. Although I'm sure the other rooms are nice too.

We stayed at Woodland Crag for 3 nights with our parents.
We have stayed in several top rated hotels and B&Bs but this one leaves them all far behind.

We had booked two rooms and both were huge (even had a separate sitting area)! Also, we were pleasantly surprised to find them to be much more than what was promised on the website. Believe me, the photos dont describe how big the rooms are, how well they make you feel at home amidst those breathtaking views.

To top that, the rates are pretty reasonable - we have stayed in other B&Bs in the area which were the same price but had roughly half the room size.

And last, but not the least, Mo was the perfect host.
We were late on arrival on our first day and it was dark by the time we reached Grasmere - also our GPS (loyally) died on us at the last moment. All we did was call Mo, who told us how to reach the B&B and not only that, we found her waving outside the B&B's gate in chilling cold when we reached - something which made us feel like we were visiting family for Christmas :).

She was willing to cater to all our requirements - be it a veggie-friendly breakfast or quick tips on scenic walks around the area.

We will be back and I hope we find rooms coz we are sure this place is going to get real busy as more people come to know about it :)

Thanks again, Mo. See you soon!

Rohan and family

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 & 4. Both are excellent rooms.

An all too brief stay, but very much enjoyed.

Grasmere guest houses have a bit of a head start on others in that they are in Grasmere!, but Woodland Crag doesn't take it's advantage for granted and provides a wonderfully relaxed experience. The room was beautifully clean, the bathroom very well equipped and the bed one of the most comfortable I've slept in. Add to this the genuinely friendly welcome, the fantastic breakfast and the superb location and you have an all round winner.

We'll certainly recommend Woodland Crag and hope to return ourselves next time we visit.

2 night stay during wonderful weather mid-March. Extremely comfortable. Breakfast very sociable with everyone round the one table. Wealth of local information to reference/borrow. Room overlooked delightful garden - bonus of photogenic deer and red squirrel on opening curtains first morning. Excellent position for both adventurous and less adventurous walkers with fell routes right outside the door. Delightful and attentive hosts. Highly recommended.
