We have been to Lancrigg so many times and we always enjoy our stay.
Room very warm & cosy. Clean & very flexible room servicing ie mid afternoon when we mistakenly took our keys! Relaxing country house decor. Lovely toiletries. Food wonderful as always. Location best in the Lakes!'

Why?
Because the views are breathtaking.
Because we were looked after by caring staff.
Because I can't stop thinking about the breakfast(s) eaten!.
Because the walk through the woods is magical.
Because the price is right!
That's why I'd go back again and again.'

Room Tip: We stayed in the house, Kitty Crag, a short walk through the woods from the main hotel. The website...

We stayed in the Lakes for 5 days at the Lancrigg vegetarian hotel. We have been coming to this hotel for about 10 years as over the years we have found nothing better and have loved its family atmosphere and friendly unobtrusive service. This is a family run hotel not part of a group and is very individual in its approach and ambiance. It is situated in one of the most beautiful and secluded parts of the Lakes in Grasmere, close to both short and sweet- as well as tough walking opportunities. It has its own woods with red squirrels and deer and a rich literary history, having belonged to friends of the Wordsworths with regular visitors such as Coleridge, Dickens and Darwin as well as many other famous figures of their time. Like them and at all seasons, visitors go from here refreshed and invigorated. We always have. And so has our dog! Long may this hotel thrive.

We have given up looking for anywhere else to go for our one child free weekend a year. We have been going for special occasions for the last 15 years and have never been disappointed! In fact we thought this visit was even better. The hotel was really warm and cosy and the rooms comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. As usual the food was vegetarian heaven with a great choice , fantastic portions and a dining room with the best views in the Lake District ! We find this hotel supremely relaxing from the moment we arrive- highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are no swimming facilities nor fitness room but we couldn't make these disappear from the...

'We've just returned from a relaxing three nights stay at Lancrigg. Our room was very comfortable and the food was excellent. The hotel is situated in a wonderful quiet setting with pleasant views and there are numerous walks from the door. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. It was a lovely place to relax and unwind and we highly recommend it. '

Room Tip: Best views seem to be from rooms at the front of the hotel.

We arrived very late at approximately 11pm after being stuck on the m6 for 4 hours.
Upon arrival we met meera at reception who showed us to our room. She made us feel so welcome, she even made a sandwich for my wife! Amazing level of service. It was a joy to meet her she is wonderful and we wish her well with her pregnancy and hope to meet her again.
The rest of the staff were all amazing too they are like family!
Our room was wonderful, an excellent period property with so much history set in the most mind blowing surroundings. If you want to be blown away by views and enjoy peace and tranquility with no hussle and bustle then You need to stay here.
The walks through the lancrigg grounds are beautiful and are like something out of lord of the rings! a fairy tale . My 5 year old daughter, wife and I have now become fans of taking walks and hikes.
The mountains surrounding the hotel are indescribable, one afternoon we ventured off to climb one of the ascents and can truly say it was a meditative experience. I felt refreshed and calm.
The owner of the hotel was friendly and would regularly have chats and also came to see us in our room to say goodbye on our final day. A joy to meet him.
We are lacto- vegetarians and for the first time in 20 years have stayed at a hotel where we ate breakfast lunch and dinner! The food? well, until you visit this place and see what effort goes into making the food, attention to detail, consistency, freshness, flavour and variety.....you get the picture.
So my summary, if you want to get away from it all and want good nutritious food and friendly environment come here.

My husband and I have been coming here for several years now and have never once been diappointed by the quality of any food. We met up with two relations who were at the end of a stay in Windermere. On their last night we introduced them to Lancrigg's wonderful food. They are not frequent vegetarian eaters but really enjoyed the food and ate all three courses with great enjoyment, excited by the different tastes and textures. Our relations had to leave their appartment the next morning but we were lucky enough to stay at Lancrigg that evening. We chose different dishes and I can honestly say my main meal was even better than the first night and to complete the meal we chose chocolate desert. I am not a pudding lover but this was a desert I will always remember and hopefully have chance to eat again. I must add that we frequent this friendly, country hotel because of the friendliness, the helpfulness, the rooms, the warmth, the food (obviously!) and surrounding views and walks. The walk through the woods between the main building and the owners' house is delightful and we have stayed in the annex attached the house several times.

Room Tip: You can look at the rooms on the Lancrigg website. Most, but not all rooms have wonderful views. Roo...
