A lovely comfortable stay with great food and staff. Located in Near Sawrey it is a walker's paradise. Parking is directly outside. From entry greeting to departure the staff are so naturally happy to serve and caring for any need you may have. Richard and the catering are quite rightly proud of all they serve as the meals both dinner and breakfast was outstanding. As a walking base in the area you can do no wrong, I did not need my car for my whole stay.
My partner and I recently visited for two nights and we were not disappointed. The greeting was lovely including a quick intro tour to the space. Food and drinks were available whenever we wanted them and the whole feel of the place was incredibly welcoming! Plus the views are gorgeous. I must mention Angela - she made our time there with her exceptionally friendly welcome and general demeanour throughout our trip. My only suggestion (and it is minor) would be to have some very light background music at meal times - it breaks up the clanking of plates and silence. Thank you for a wonderful trip 😊
Great place, very cosy and neat. Very good facilities, very quiet neighborhood and close to the pub. Parking is just outside.Access to the lake was kindly given by the owners.WiFi does not work well, but this is the only issue we found
Stayed for 3 nights and restful ,peaceful experience. The views were fantastic and the website does not do it justice. Breakfast was excellent and they even catered for my GF wife and also tried their best to accommodate her for dinner which was the only drawback as although sounding a delicious menu was limited.We definitely will return to the "Blue" Room and the tranquil location . One suggestion if not having dinner at the hotel is make sure you book elsewhere as its very busy!
Very nice country hotel off the beaten track . Accommodation very comfortable and the staff were very happy to assist where possibly. Very nice dinners cooked by Richard and the breakfast was a high standard one cooked by Collette and the other by Richard. I can see and taste why they have been awarded over the years. Keep up the great work guys x
As the hotel that we stayed for our honeymoon is now part of the YHA we decided against staying there for our special anniversary. We heard about Ees Wyke from friends who had been a few times before so we felt confident enough to book our stay for 3 nights. We were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome, accompanied by a very welcome pot of tea. Our room was as expected as there had been a picture of it on the Facebook site. The meals that we had, cooked by Richard the owner, were imaginative and delicious. The breakfast has won awards and the variety of things on offer makes you glad not to be staying for just one night. The staff are very friendly and Richard likes to have a word with his guests in the dining room after he has finished serving. There is a lovely atmosphere at the hotel and we are so glad that we chose to spend our time away at Ees Wyke which is situated on Esthwaite Water just outside Hawkshead. The views are spectacular and we certainly hope to return there.…
I booked this for our surprise silver wedding anniversary - I even upgraded the room and looked great on photos - However, I had emailed /communicated about my wife being vegetarian prior to the visit. Unfortunately when we arrived I had to cancel the meal as the chef was unable to entertain any vegetarian requests. The wife could have had asparagus for starters and a aubergine puree for mains? We obviously declined. I believe they must have been upset over this as our "blue room" dining table with lake view was "demoted by Breakfast to the entrance to the dining area with no view! even the waitress was confused and surprised at the move but had obviously heard about our request. Anyway looks like in the 3 days were there not many people went for the very limited a la carte menu as it was empty. We ate out 3 fabulous meals and the first 2 nights went to the other hotel on the hill and saw other guests! - great walks and views shame about the attitude, lack of catering to guests needs. We had previously spent 2 full days at a 5 star in North Wales which exceeded our expectations. Ess Wyke sadly, fell short of our expectations…
“The view from our room over the fields and the lake was stunning with friendly, attentive staff who obviously enjoy working there and meeting new people. Richard, the owner, is an inspired people person and an exceptional chef. Every meal we had was delicious, cooked to perfection and served with a big smile. Guests particularly appreciated Richard visiting each table at the end of the meal. The wine list is fine with ranges across the board” The only downside is temporary but extensive damage to the decor both inside and outside by water problems but that would not stop us from returning
Sad to say this but there are tourist areas in the UK, where tourists themselves are barely tolerated. Whenever apologists for these places trawl out the reasons why they are “passively-hostile”; I simply refer them to the English Lake District. A region I have been visiting since my father, (a keen fisherman), took me there in the early 1960’s and where the friendliness of the people, (in my opinion at least), is unsurpassed. So when I tell you that the Ees Wyke has all that charm and friendliness – and then some – you will know I hold it and especially Ees Wyke, in very high regard. Before I start waxing lyrical about all of its undeniable charms, let me say that it may not be for everyone. A good friend recently visited the Lakes for the first time and he’s impressed by things such as “snail porridge” and spa’s. Neither of which you’ll get at Ees Wyke. What you will get is a small, historic, beautifully situated country-house hotel, which will deliver levels of service normally associated with the five-star “palaces” of London’s Mayfair. The standards of the kitchen wouldn’t impress fans of “molecular-gastronomy” but did impress me - a passionate amateur cook. Although resolutely British, Richard Lee holds fast to the Italian principle, of using the best quality ingredients and not “mucking them up”. Simplicity and quality are the watchwords here. The rooms, (both public and private), are all extremely comfortable. The views from our room, (Jade), over Esthwaite Water and the fells beyond are absolutely stunning. Despite being located on the top floor, water pressure in the immaculately finished bathroom was superb, as were the complimentary Penhaligon toiletries. Out bed was top-notch, providing seven nights of blissfully uninterrupted sleep. I mentioned the friendliness of the Lakes and no review of Ees Wyke would be complete without mentioning the superb staff. Nothing is too much trouble and you are always greeted with a friendly smile. If it’s advice you are looking for, then you will be blessed with a seemingly encyclopaedic knowledge of the area and what it has to offer. Absolutely faultless. In conclusion, my wife and I have stayed at some of the Lake District’s most prestigious hotels and Ees Wyke can stand toe-to-toe with them all. It may not have a bewildering array of facilities but what it does have is a warmth and charm that well-paid interior designers spend a lifetime trying to emulate. There is no doubt that we will be joining the increasing number of people who revisit the Lakes – simply to stay at Ees Wyke. I couldn’t recommend it more.…
