“The best B&B we have ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

This is our second stay in Banerigg and we love it even more! Angela and Martin are fantastic hosts. They were so friendly we felt as if we have known them for years!
We stayed in the en-suite front room which was lovely, comfortable, clean, spacious and had an amazing view to Grasmere lake. Clean towels were put in our room every day. They cooked us a big English breakfast every morning. Tea/coffee were always available in the hallway for us to make whenever we want. The lounge was definitely the best room in the house, full of board games and the warm fireplace. Whenever we went home from walking, that's the room we went to as Angela always put the fireplace on to warm us up, and provided tea and homemade cookies! Yumm.. We miss all of those now!! :)

The B&B location is perfect to go walking around Grasmere lake, the view is breathtaking. Martin even let us use his canoes in the lake so we can go to the beach and the island. We really enjoyed it!

Without a doubt, this is the best B&B we have ever stayed in and we cannot wait to be back! Thanks, Angela and Martin, and hope to see you again soon!!! xx

Since my last review I have stayed twice more at Banerigg Guest House. The situation, immediately opposite Grasmere lake, is stunning. The room had a beautiful lake view and was tastefully decorated and furnished with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was spacious, scrupulously clean and everything worked perfectly. The breakfasts were amazing: not just the cooked food, but also the large quantities of fresh fruit salad and Angela's lovely fruity 'muesli trifle', not to mention Martin's home made jam. Most of all Angela and Martin, as always, went to any lengths to respond to the needs of their guests and provide individually tailored help and advice. Nothing was too much trouble.

Nothing is too much trouble they are very accommodating and do their best to help.
After the initial shock of no tv anywhere I actually found it to be a blessing - the house was nice and quiet! We also had the opportunity to talk, play games and speak with the other guests, something which wouldn't have happened if the tv was on in the room!
Great power shower and the rooms were spotlessly clean with a lovely view of the lake. The walk into town was pleasant and the breakfast was very nice too!

Parking was nice and easy, plenty of space and we could park the car straight outside below our window every day.

The welcome and general hospitality was possibly the best we have ever experienced at a B&B/hotel. A genuine interest is shown in guests and their needs.

Most of the rooms do boast a wonderful lakeside view - yes OK that is with the A591 passing by as well but that didn't spoil the scenery for us (road noise might be an issue for people who struggle to sleep and want an early night)

The room was very clean but fairly basic - the notable omissions for me were no TV or coffee in the room (there is a central tea/coffee point outside the rooms) although first thing on arrival we were offered a pot of coffee, tea and biscuits.

There was no TV in the lounge either - normally this wouldn't be a problem for us at all however it just so happened that our stay was during the riots that were taking place in various cities so we were trying to keep up with the news a bit.

What the lounge did boast however was plenty of books, puzzles, board games, lego for the kids and a fully working and well tuned piano!

Back to the bedroom, the shower was excellent. Proper power shower with plenty of pressure behind it and thermostatically controlled. I thought the bed seemed a little bit springy for my liking however I am used to a 'memory mattress' so that might just have been the shock of returning back to a sprung mattress.

And then we come to mention breakfast, an area where this place absolutely excels. Very filling! Generous helpings and really nice food, couldn't fault it and plus I got 4 cups of coffee out of my coffee pot!

All in all a very pleasant stay and great location - most people are quoting a 15mins walk into town however the walk did not seem that far to me.

I had a single room en suite - not large but not small either - quite adequate - as was the shower room. Trees obscure much of the lake in any case - if this is important to you check when booking. Angela was extremely helpful and made me feel welcome in what is an old but comfortable "small hotel".. It was 15 mins walk into town for supper - but it is a pleasant enough walk despite being along the roadside.

Breakfast was very good and WiFi was a useful facility for me. There's a very spacious visitors' lounge too where you really can relax, Definitely one of the top 3 stopovers on my 14 day Coast to Coast walk and nothing to fault,
