Once again a wonderful stay, food was outstanding and nothing is too much trouble for all the staff working there. We look forward to returning to our special yearly treat, in a very beautiful part of the countryside.

Set in a stunning valley and unbelievably quiet this place has been our spring retreat for years. Staff are very friendly, the food is great and the house charming. What more is there to say except ... enjoy!

Outstanding peace in Juniper room in Kitty Crag......just two nights......listen to the lyrics of Summertime in England by Van Morrison to get an idea of the atmosphere. One might say you could feel the silence. No TV in room.....I suggest get rid of wireless as well!

Room Tip: Maybe take your own biscuits......

Thank you for your lovely and lyrical review and it is great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay here with us in the lovely peaceful valley of Easedale. Hmm I think we had better keep the broadband for the convenience of guests - we do have TVS in all the rooms at Lancrigg as well as broadband but many do say they enjoy an escape from these things! We look forward to welcoming you back to Lancrigg in the not too distant future.
With best wishes Robert Whittington and the team

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!
