“Excellent location and service”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

We arrived for a long weekend Friday to Monday and did read reviews on TA before hand. Got to say was not disappointed. The accommodation was excellent, clean and tidy especially the bathroom with its large corner whirlpool. food great and very good service. Could not do enough for you especially as we had dexter our 12 month old border collie. The Bed was super comfy and we slept well - or was that the Cumberland ale? Gave some good advice about local walks. In all an excellent place and would highly recommend.

We visited in October 2013 with our new dog and Michelle made an absolute fuss of her and us.
It's a few minutes walk to the centre of Grasmere and ideal for striking out onto the fells and beyond.
Perfect host in a perfect location. Just wonderful. Already planning our next trip.

We had a fantastic couple of days here and i have to say Lake View Country House was a delight. I have stayed many times in the lakes and to be honest i always try and stay in different places but next time i will be booking here again as its got to be the best accommodation in the most beautiful part of the Lake District. We stayed in the Lake View Room and the view was beautiful. Also i am a breakfast fan and i have to say the breakfast was just quality cooked to perfection.

All in all FANTASTIC!!

We will be back soon

Room Tip: The lake view room is beautiful with views of the lake and fells.

It was extremely important to us to rave on about the fantastic time we had at Lake View Country House. Michelle who managers her own establishment is a total delight and made our stay very special. We finally meet Steve and he was a positive guy who was a bundle of information. The whole experience will be treasured by my wife and I, we felt so at home in the warm, inviting accommodation, superb breakfasts, a lot of laughs and The Lakes District is like visiting Alice in Wonderland. The view from our window was similar to an oil painting.......what a wonderful memory for both of us.....

Room Tip: We stayed in the self catering accommodation on second floor overlooking the lake..wow

I don't know about Lucky Australians,more like I am lucky us to meet you,what lovely people you are.
It's a real pleasure to be able to make your holiday a little more enjoyable and it's lovely to be remembered by you when you're so far away.
Thank you for taking the time to write your comments,especially when you must have such alot to do on your return
As I said,I doubt that I'll get to Australia again,given our last disastrous trip so we'll have to hope that you come back to England to meet you again.

We just had a long weekend at Lake View escaping the bright lights of London. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Steve showed us some great walks as we are novices, and Michelle and Esta make a breakfast to die for. Our rooms were spotless and warm, the power shower was very welcome after getting drenched! We ate at hotel which our hosts recommended, and which was delicious and they even whipped up something special for a veggie option.

All round brilliant time, can't wait to go again.... And yes, we saw the badgers too!

We wanted to book an autumnal weekend away in the Lakes to grab some fresh air and enjoy some blustery walks. Some good friends recommended Lake View and we certainly weren't disappointed!

Arriving late at night on the Friday the comfy bed provided in our room was exactly what we needed after a long journey from London. Waking before midday on the weekend is not something i usually go in for, but Michelle's lovely cooked breakfast certainly made it worth it! We feasted on sausages, bacon etc and were looked after splendidly by Esther. It certainly prepared us for the long walk around the Lakes that Steve kindly recommended.

Having completed our walk we returned to the house for an afternoon snooze, and the bedroom and bathroom were left immaculately clean for us to mess-up again!

A lovely dinner out in the village, again thanks to Steve's recommendation, saw us return to the B&B for around 11ish. As we got back, we were lucky enough to see some of the badgers from the set in the front garden grabbing a late night feast very close to the house.

The Sunday was a carbon copy of the Saturday, except the weather came-in a we got to experience true Lakes rain - sideways and lots of it!!

All in all we had a fantastic weekend and can't wait to book again in the new year.

Would thoroughly recommend.

Just completed a four night break at Lake View and as on many previous occasions thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We feel like it is 'home from home'.
The room was extremely comfortable and there were lots of little extras. Large choice at breakfast all cooked beautifully.
