Arrived after an extremely wet day on C2C. At the door our hosts took all our wet clothes of to dry or wash. (£5 a load). Once we had showered and dried our we were presented with tea and cake. We had three rooms here and our own lounge. Great location and easy to walk to pub for our evening...

Christine made us feel very welcome at Grisedale Lodge. We had 2 very comfortable nights after day long walks around lake Ullswater. The scenery around there is fantastic. Grisedale Lodge is a short 10 mins walk to local pubs/restaurant. Christine's breakfast was awesome, and we opted one day for a packed lunch which was just the ticket on our second...

We recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at Grisedale Lodge which is ideally located on the edge of Glenridding and Patterdale villages. It's possible to do some fabulous walks in all directions from the door and Christine is very knowledgeable about the area. The B & B is located down a driveway so it's very quiet and the views from...

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding higher up the road at the Inn on the Lake. Grisedale Lodge is around a 15min walk away from there and keep in mind that there are no street lamps along the road so walking back late can be a bit of a struggle without a torch. We stayed in...

Hello Madalyn and Geoff. It was lovely to see you again after you stayed with us last year during your Coast to Coast walk.

Two perfect nights when we were somewhat tired after a mega adventure of 25 of the highest peaks in Cumbria in two days.

The B&B is a few minutes walk from Glenridding, our double room with en suite had beautiful views. However, the en suite was tiny and appeared not to be very clean. There were traces of mould on most of the tiles surfaces, and flaking paint on the ceiling; not to mention the cobwebs. It really needed a good dose of...

Ok, this started when we wanted one night's B&B in the Lakes on a weekend, and so many places didn't reply to enquiries, or would not take a booking for a single night, and so on.
