We just stayed one night on a return trip from the Highlands but would have liked to have stayed longer. Greystoke is a lovely village with friendly locals and an interesting history. Our room was superb, full of character and very comfortable. Our dogs were made welcome and there is a lovely large garden for those 'late and early walkies' Other good walks nearby. There was live music on when we arrived and food was very good too. Only slight downside was that the pub was so busy it felt somewhat impersonal as staff had no time for niceties - but on the other hand it's good to see such a busy popular village pub these days. Hopefully we'll have a longer stay next time and get to know it better.
