“Idyllic Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We have stayed in a number of hotels over the many years we have visited Grasmere but the view from the Lake room beats anything previously experienced. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the wildlife in the garden, although sadly we didn't catch sight of the badgers (maybe next time).
Good breakfast with plenty of choice which sets you up for the day.
Made very welcome by Michelle and Steve
An excellent 3 night stay, we will be back

Room Tip: Lake room has fantastic views of the fells

What kind words of praise indeed and we very much appreciate them. Yes the view is amazing isn't it..

I'm sorry that you didn't get to see the badgers,we'll make sure you see them next time but not sure I'll be happy to still have the rabbits!

Thank you,
Michelle and Steve.

Another fantastic stay at Lake View. We have been coming for a few years now and stayed both in the B&B and self catering and can't fault the accommodation or the breakfasts. It is very clean, you are made very welcome, the breakfasts set you up for the day. It is very dog friendly. It is close to the centre of Grasmere, there are lots of beautiful walks...in fact you don't need to use your car at all once you arrive. Thank you Michelle and Stephen...not forgetting Brock ( the lovely cocker spaniel).

Hello Pauline,

It was lovely to have you stay for yet another holiday with us,its always lovely to see returning quests especially as frequently as you do.

You're so right about our location, its so handy to be able to walk down the lane to get to within 8 or more restaurants,we're spoilt for choice in such a small village as Grasmere.

Look forward to your next visit.

Best wishes,.

Michelle and Steve,oh,and not forgetting Brock.

Wonderful accommodation in Grasmere. We stayed in the Lake room with brilliant views across the fells. Room had easy chairs by the windows to take in the views after coming in from the many walks nearby. Wide range of options for breakfast from fresh fruit to full English.

This isn't really a walkers stop on the coast to coast route, but we were lucky enough to be staying a couple of nights. Michelle and Steve made sure our bags were able to be picked up successfully, despite themselves wanting to get away to Edinburgh.

Would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay for a relaxing break.

Room Tip: Lake room has excellent views

So glad that you managed to get a couple of days rest during your coast to coast walk.

Thanks for your appreciation of our breakfasts,its one of the most important parts of our job and Marta,our Spanish staff, makes a fabulous fruit salad and takes great care in how it looks.We always try to use local produce and our English bacon sausages come from Cranston's, a local company,well worth trying.

Hope the rest of your walk went well.

Thanks,

Michelle and Steve

This was the third time we had stayed with Michelle. As always we were looked after brilliantly with a very comfortable room with a marvellous view. Breakfast is a treat and the service is excellent and very friendly. Home from home. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Lake District and will be returning to Michelle's again soon.

We stayed here last week with our dog Kaiber for a few days and had a fantastic time. We visit the Lake District a lot but have never been to Lake View before. Located down a private road just off the main street in Grasmere Lake View has lovely views to Grasmere Lake and footpath that takes you down to the Lake. Very peaceful and beautiful surroundings. We did lots of walking and did not have to use the car once (which is ideal).
The bed and breakfast has everything you need and the owners Steve and Michelle are the perfect hosts. Was lovely to meet their dog Brock too. The breakfast is perfect and you can have as much or as little as you want. We stayed in the Fellside Suite which is great with plenty of space and very comfy.
Would highly recommend and we will be returning soon.

Had a 3 night stay, could not fault it, owners friendly, room excellent with every convenience we could ever need, all high quality toiletries etc. First rate breakfast with wide choice of fresh ingredients - a real 'all day breakfast', perfectly cooked and well presented.
Location is perfect, quiet lane but short easy walk into the village which has ample choice of restaurants for dinner. Nice garden to relax in with private access to the lake shore with spectacular views.
We chose well when we stayed here and will not hesitate to return when next visiting the Lake District.

Have just got home from a really lovely stay here. We stayed in the Azalea apartment which was just great for us as it gave us plenty of space for us and our dogs, and was great to have our own private access with parking space right outside our own door :-) The apartment was lovely and very clean and had absolutely everything that we could possibly need, nothing is too much trouble and the owners obviously care very much about making sure that their guests have the best facilities. The breakfasts were great, lots of choice and everything was just the best quality food, and cooked to perfection! Was lovely to meet Michelle, and Brock of course!! Michelle was so friendly and welcoming and made sure we had the perfect stay here. We will most certainly be returning when we visit the Lakes again, and would most definitely recommend :-) Thanks again Michelle, was "just perfect" for us! Jackie & Andy (Kesi, Kofie & Karys) x
