Came here for a wedding and the staff were excellent. Very helpful and chatted to everybody. Drinks selection was very good (particularly spirits!) and prices were reasonable.
The place itself is picturesque and in a good location to the town. The back garden area is fantastic. Would reccommend and would stay here when visiting.

A quaint little place owned by Ian, a well experienced mountain and walking tour guide than can give you plenty advice on the area. We stayed at one of the cottages ( Bothy), a cosy and spacious room, with a second level with extra two beds. The place has a well visited small bar lounge and a restaurant serving home cooked meals. The bar has a good selection of drinks and even own home brewed beer, but we were not impressed by the dinner. Breakfast was fine, your typical full English breakfast.

Well, we're not C2C brethren ( yet!), just a couple on a self catering walking holiday. After a dissapointing reckie from Patterdale to Glenridding in search of food, we stumbled across the old water view on the edge of Patterdale. After an interesting chat to the proprietor, Ian, we stayed for dinner, and had some great food, especially the trout fillet with deliciously creamy mash and fresh veg.

Ian is a very interesting bloke, when asked how many times he has done the coast to coast walk, he modestly replies, oh, just a few times. After reading some of the stuff on the walls, you quickly realise that he has also walked lands end to John o groats, and his daughter was a 2x c2c veteran by the time she was 8!

So here we have a serious walker running a serious B&B with restaurant, and trust me, if you like to walk, like good food, then just like Wainwright himself, you will enjoy your time at Old Water View!

Gorgeous location, helpful and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us and made our stay and wedding perfect...everything went as planned, which made us the calmest bride and groom anyone has ever seen. The food was delicious both breakfast and dinner. I couldn't have asked for more so a massive thank you to all involved.

A fantastic family feel to a beautifully situated well rounded establishment. Providing outstanding service in all fields with brilliant staff and excellent food. Good value and plenty to do.
So a big thank you from me and my new wife for a perfect long weekend.
