“Another great stay at Howfoot”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Stayed here for a couple of nights - had a lovely time as always. Beautiful house & grounds. Rooms very spacious & clean. Breakfast great, always high quality produce and cooked to order. Location is great, very peaceful and just a short walk into the village with plenty of eateries/pubs to choose from. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Grasmere as its excellent value for money & always delivers.

A comfortable and accommodating bnb. Delicious, hearty cooked breakfast in the morning with plenty of cereals, tea and coffee. Lovely, spacious rooms with views of the beautiful garden and village - very highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room One is particularly nice

Other than mentioning the warm welcome, the well appointed rooms, the great breakfasts and the super location, there is not so much to say about How Foot Lodge. If only all other B&B's could be as comfortable as How Foot, if only...

My husband and I stayed at How Foot Lodge in December and found it to be a delightful, cosy haven and a perfect base for exploring the Lakes District.

Our room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was fresh and lovely (with a wide range of options to choose from) but what tips this is over the edge for me is the personal touches;
- I am pregnant and Kate went out of their way to accommodate/check my dietary requirements
- Provide us with a room that was easily accessible etc
- and lastly, when we left we forgot to take my pregnancy pillow with us and didn't realise until we had reached London Kate promptly sent it to us via post.

We would definitely return!

Just got back from a short break where we stayed at How Foot. We stayed in a standard room and expected something fairly basic, which would have been fine. Couldn't believe when we got to the room to find it huge, with a chaise longue and TV area aswell! The bath & shower room looked quite new, well-decorated, room was immaculate and we relaxed almost straightaway. Nice touches all around like fresh milk, 'white company' bathroom accessories and down duvet and fresh cotton sheets on the bed. Only - very minor - thing was that the bed was double and we are both tall and used to a huge bed but that was fine really, we could handle it!
The whole building was well-designed and set up for a B & B where you aren't herded or rushed around around, it felt quite personal. Very nicely decorated, it fit well with the age of the building.
Very helpful owners who went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good stay. They work hard, running the B & B and nearby Columbine restaurant between them. We ate at the Columbine and recommend it.
Breakfast next morning very nice, all fresh & quality ingredients with fresh coffee (a must for us coffee snobs). All in all very good value given the cost of staying at the lakes these days, we paid £72 a night per room with breakfast. We are very fussy about where we stay but we would go back there if we were to return to the Grasmere area and know we would enjoy it.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are big.

Just perfect, a fabulous B and B , We had the room with the sun room for our 4 day break and as the weather was not so good it felt really cosy and yet roomy. Everything about the place was faultless , the house and quiet location, the comfy bed, the privacy, the breakfasts and the touches like fresh milk left out for us each day in our rooms. Highly recomended.
