I've been to a number of B&Bs in different parts of the country and Lake View is definitely one of the best. It is conveniently located, I especially liked that it is not on a busy road, in quiet settings.
Our Garden Suite, was located on the ground floor, the living room had a lovely view, the suite is cosy and had everything necessary, including a small fridge in the living room. Breakfast was very nice too.
Michelle is a friendly hostess and we felt very welcome. All in all, we had a very nice experience and I would definitely stay in Lake View again and would recommend it to friends.

This wonderfully situated b&b, with its views over Grasmere and the fells beyond, was somewhat let down by a couple of incidents. We arrived about 6pm but were unable to get anyone to respond to the doorbell and had to wait outside for about 15mins before Steve just happened to see us outside, luckily the weather was lovely. In view of the restrictions in arrival times quoted on the website, no matter the excuse for not realising we were waiting to get in, this isn't really good enough. Secondly, allowing their pet dog, Brock, to be in the room whilst breakfast was being served I don't feel was really appropriate. There will be customers who feel uncomfortable with this arrangement but who possibly don't like to complain at the time; I'm not sure, on health grounds alone, that I felt particularly comfortable despite liking dogs.
Other than these gripes we had no complaints. The Lake Room was large & comfortable with super views across the lake and the whirlpool bath was wonderful after a long days walk. The breakfast was adequate and nicely presented. Michelle is a very chatty hostess with lots of stories to tell. The property is within easy walking distance of all Grasmere's shops, pubs and cafes/restaurants.

We have been coming to Lake View for several years and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else as we feel we have found perfection here. Michelle and Steve are very friendly and helpful and always make us so welcome. The house is in a superb position, the very private, beautiful garden overlooks both Grasmere lake and fells. The resident badgers and rabbits add to the charm. The breakfasts are excellent. We stayed in the Lake room which is very comfortable with lots of extra comforts such as the whirlpool bath and foot spa, both very welcome after a day's walking. We will be returning again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lake room but have stayed in other rooms on previous occasions and they are all ver...

We had a warm welcome on arrival and were shown to our lovely room overlooking the lake.The breakfast menu was varied and the food was delicious and cooked to perfection .Michelle our hostess couldn't do enough for us and was so helpful with her advice about eating out and places to see. This was our first visit to the Lake District and we will certainly be back again and look forward to seeing mine host(s) at Lake View again

spent a lovely anniversary weekend at this lovely property on a very sunny popular weekend. The room was comfy with a good size bed and well dressed. The location was superb being located in the heart of the lakes and next to Grasmere (water). The service was very friendly and well informed for a local knowledge. The breakfast choice was very good, extensive and served promptly despite being packed out. They cater for a wide range of breakfast selection and all well organised. Attention to detail was very good. Our room was on the small size but adequate for our needs. we really enjoyed the weekend and would love to go back again.

Room Tip: the ivory room is generally good but a bit on the small side. Don't bring large luggage unless y...

4th year we have returned to lake view country house situated on an idyllic lane overlooking fields, a lake and the beautiful fells. For the fourth year we have not been disappointed. Beautiful homely accommodation with the best breakfasts around! Michelle and Stephen are fantastic hosts and nothing is ever a problem. Highly recommended if you fancy a nice peaceful weekend break or doing a spot of walking (or shopping)! You may even be lucky and see the resident badgers roaming around the grounds in the evening. Thank you Michelle and Stephen for making us feel so welcome once again. Lorraine
