“simply stunning”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

On the edge of Grasmere this is an idyllic location. You follow a long drive to the house with its outstanding views and acres of grounds and woods to relax in. Individual rooms either in the main house or a few minutes walk away in a house in the grounds. It is totally peaceful and relaxing. If you want flat screen televisions and wifi this is not for you. If you want individual rooms, peaceful lounges with gorgeous views and a place to unwind it most definitely is.
The staff are friendly but unobtrusive and the prices are most reasonable. But having said all this the highlight is the food which is remarkable - and this comes from a non-vegetarian.
If you're looking to recharge your batteries in relaxed and informal surroundings book today!

Room Tip: It's worth paying a fraction more for a room with a view

This place is set in quiet garden and bushland and is gorgeous. The food is fresh and delightful. Being vegetarian wondered if my meat eating husband would be happy but he loved it. I could have easily stayed longer than our one night. It is walking distance to the local village and has lots of bush walks to go on without getting in your car. Would definitely visit again......note...if you need lots of good internet access....it won't be here.

Nestled in the many shades of green in the Easedale Valley is the Lancrigg Hotel. It has a rich past history dating back to 1840. The setting is pastoral. A pallet of greens frame views of the valley floor. Meandering stone fences and a multitude of sheep complete the view. The gorgeous grounds attract many birds which sing at the beginning and the end of the day. The restaurant serves gourmet vegetarian meals in a gracious and unhurried fashion. Many of the guests are returning visitors. A perfect way to enjoy the Lake District.

I would highly recommend the Lancrigg Vegetarian Country House Hotel to everyone. The location is superb, the birdsong is the loudest thing you will hear, and yet it is only 10 minutes walk to the cafes and shops in Grasmere. The food is a culinary delight for vegetarians, and (I imagine) a welcome surprise for hardened meat-eaters. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I've been visiting the LVCHH for over 20 years, and I hope to be back again many more times in the next 20 years!

Have been going to this oasis of calm for 30 years, the young staff, usually student travellers, always great and well trained by the quirky owner. As meat eaters we found the vegetarian/vegan menu to be truly exceptional and they will always accommodate unusual requests. If you are walking the fells their packed lunch is tasty and nutritional.

We only stayed one night but had a lovely walk through the grounds before dinner which they let us have later than the stated dinner time so we could stretch our legs after a long drive. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food ideal for us being vegetarians. The room was not large but was charming especially with its 4 poster bed. Would like to have stayed longer and tried some of the walks in and around the grounds.

Stayed for two nights in the easedale room.. Lovely big room with lovely whirlpool bath shower ok but not very powerful. The room was quite old fashioned but part of the charm.Tea, herbal tea and coffee in room would have been a nice touch if there were some biscuits as well. Room had a good view of the hotel gardens which are beautiful and there are wild rabbits and deer in the gardens. Food was delicious even meat eating partner was happy to have both evening meals in the hotel, breakfast also very good would recommend the tofu, lettuce and tomato
. Staff friendly and helpful.
