“Lovely place to stop for walkers”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed here on C2C (June 2014) and Christine is as delightful a host as ever. Home baked cakes on arrival and lovely breakfast as always - room is comfy with lovely shower - just the ticket! We stayed here in 2011 & 2012 C2C too!

I stayed here during my C2C. Very comfortable room; loads of hot water on demand; comfortable bed so good night sleep; outstanding breakfast choice; very good packed lunch. Saving the best to last, Christine is simply the best, a wonderful lady.

My boyfriend and I have very fond memories of our stay at West View. Christine was warm and motherly and does an excellent poached egg and homemade muesli.

Staying at West View is like staying in a pensione: to reach your room you walk through the main house, and breakfast room was formerly the host's family room. This is a lovely aspect of the stay, however, and you are still provided with plenty of privacy.

West View is about a 5-minute walk to the centre of town, but Grasmere is beautiful so the stroll is really just another chance to reap up the scenery.

Another lovely stay in beautiful Grasmere. We have done the Rosthwaite to Grasmere walk numerous times, and for me it never gets any easier. I am not a good rock walker and always find the Lake District arduous so I am always exhausted when arriving in Grasmere. Christine and Dennis are always there to welcome us and provide anything we could possibly need. A great breakfast is provided and we are sent off well fed and happy for another day's walk.

After a very wet day on day 3 of the Coast to Coast we arrived at the west view guest house. It is a little way out of the main part of Grasmere, however it is only a short detour off the route. Christine is an excellent host, welcoming us with homemade cakes and tea on arrival. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The choice of eating places is varied but we settled for the pub further down the road which was very nice.

We only stayed at West View for one night but we absolutely loved it. We arrived later than planned but Dennis still stayed up late to welcome us to the house. The room was cosy, clean and had everything that we needed plus lovely home made biscuits! The full english breakfast was lovely (as was the vegetarian version) and the lounge in which it was eaten was also very charming and even had a piano on which we attempted to play. Christine also gave us a great walking recommendation up Helm Crag which is just outside of Grasmere. We would definitely come again!

We stayed here for one night while walking the Coast to Coast. We had a lovely welcome from Christine and enjoyed her home baking. There was paper for our wet boots and we were able to hang up our wet clothes to dry. Our room was charming, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The sitting room was also comfortable and a nice place to relax with local maps and information available. Christine was very accommodating, friendly and helpful and breakfast was lovely. We would stay here again.
