Recently returned from stay at this lovely hotel and can only praise the owners and their excellent staff for a warm ,friendly welcome in a charming country house. It's location is perfect with pretty views of the lake and surrounding countryside. The rooms were warm and beds were comfortable with good quality bedding. Had a very peaceful nights sleep without any disturbance.
Food was excellent with great choice and the bar was well-stocked and cosy with a roaring fire There was even a Games Room for anybody who wanted a game of Snooker or billiards!!
The whole experience was relaxing and we can't wait to return in Autumn

I recently visited the Ravenstone Manor with my son. Kim and Cherin are excellent hosts. We ate in the restaurant where I had the best herdwick lamb in a long time. Our other main was the guinea fowl. The food could not be faulted. We shall be back. You definitely do not need to have a dietary requirement to eat there.

We have stayed in the Lake District a few times, but this has to be our most pleasant stay. Ravenstone Manor is set in a country location, but only a few miles from Keswick. The hotel is a charming period country house, with a bar, restaurant, comfortable lounge and games room. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the boss ladies Kim and Cherin run a great place, and both get involved in making their guest's experience the most enjoyable.
We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night, one word "outstanding"! We could not fault the food which was delicious, the service was excellent, and we both retired to the bar feeling very satisfied customers.
What a wonderful experience.
Could I fault anything? Well I am a light sleeper, so the dawn chorus does my head in, but it does so at home, so that won't really be an excuse.
The bathroom in our room was a bit compact, but still it worked for us.
No really can't complain much at all.
So on that basis we would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We came across this place on a walk and took a chance after a miserable previous night's accommodation. Room was very comfortable. Evening meal set the place apart from others. Great selection, outstanding quality on all courses. Stayed with family (children aged 9 and 7). Games room was brilliant, full size snooker table and pool table together with hundreds of board games. No extra charge for children. A fantastic stay.

This was our second visit to Ravenstone Manor and our experience was as good, if not better, than our first time. Kim and Cherin are wonderful hosts and the whole team are so friendly and helpful. On top of this, there's a fabulous selection of meals which are delicious. Will we be back? Actually yes, we're back for another weekend in May!
