“Peaceful & Comfortable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

We (my husband and I ) have just returned from a three night break at Lake View. I must say we were impressed with the overall cleanliness of the house & friendliness of the owner Michelle. We stayed in the Fellside Suite which has its own lounge area with great views over the gardens to the lake. Walks from the doorstep and plenty of eating establishments in the village on an evening without having to drive. The breakfast was spot on (as someone who may I say is pretty good in the kitchen myself ) it was one of the best I have had in a very long time. We hope to return again soon. Thank you Michelle :-)

Room Tip: Fellside Suite and Garden Room both have lounge areas

We visited for Valentines weekend, checking in on Friday afternoon and staying for 2 nights.
Very warm welcome, secluded spot with access to everything you need on a walking weekend.
We stayed in the Fellside Suite, rooms were stunning and decorated to a very high standard and absolutely immaculate. Being a Dog Friendly place you would not have thought it at all, the Jacuzzi bath was amazing, especially at the end of walking in wintry conditions.
The hosts were superb, extremely friendly and the breakfasts were amazing. They have clearly put a lot of thought and effort in to what they provide.
We will be back for sure

Thank you Linda, it is so nice that the effort that we go to ,to keep the house as clean as can be doesn't go un noticed. It's one of the most important aspects of our business and having a good breakfast goes without saying, after all what's a b and b if you can't give your guests these things.
Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

We arrived for a long weekend Friday to Monday and did read reviews on TA before hand. Got to say was not disappointed. The accommodation was excellent, clean and tidy especially the bathroom with its large corner whirlpool. food great and very good service. Could not do enough for you especially as we had dexter our 12 month old border collie. The Bed was super comfy and we slept well - or was that the Cumberland ale? Gave some good advice about local walks. In all an excellent place and would highly recommend.

We visited in October 2013 with our new dog and Michelle made an absolute fuss of her and us.
It's a few minutes walk to the centre of Grasmere and ideal for striking out onto the fells and beyond.
Perfect host in a perfect location. Just wonderful. Already planning our next trip.

We had a fantastic couple of days here and i have to say Lake View Country House was a delight. I have stayed many times in the lakes and to be honest i always try and stay in different places but next time i will be booking here again as its got to be the best accommodation in the most beautiful part of the Lake District. We stayed in the Lake View Room and the view was beautiful. Also i am a breakfast fan and i have to say the breakfast was just quality cooked to perfection.

All in all FANTASTIC!!

We will be back soon

Room Tip: The lake view room is beautiful with views of the lake and fells.

It was extremely important to us to rave on about the fantastic time we had at Lake View Country House. Michelle who managers her own establishment is a total delight and made our stay very special. We finally meet Steve and he was a positive guy who was a bundle of information. The whole experience will be treasured by my wife and I, we felt so at home in the warm, inviting accommodation, superb breakfasts, a lot of laughs and The Lakes District is like visiting Alice in Wonderland. The view from our window was similar to an oil painting.......what a wonderful memory for both of us.....

Room Tip: We stayed in the self catering accommodation on second floor overlooking the lake..wow

I don't know about Lucky Australians,more like I am lucky us to meet you,what lovely people you are.
It's a real pleasure to be able to make your holiday a little more enjoyable and it's lovely to be remembered by you when you're so far away.
Thank you for taking the time to write your comments,especially when you must have such alot to do on your return
As I said,I doubt that I'll get to Australia again,given our last disastrous trip so we'll have to hope that you come back to England to meet you again.

We just had a long weekend at Lake View escaping the bright lights of London. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Steve showed us some great walks as we are novices, and Michelle and Esta make a breakfast to die for. Our rooms were spotless and warm, the power shower was very welcome after getting drenched! We ate at hotel which our hosts recommended, and which was delicious and they even whipped up something special for a veggie option.

All round brilliant time, can't wait to go again.... And yes, we saw the badgers too!
