We have just returned home after spending the Easter break at Lake View....Wow what an absolutely splendid guest house this is now it is under new ownership. Beth & Paul have put so much work into transforming a tired shabby guest house into a wonderful guest house with gorgeous comfy beds and beautful en suites, with wonderful plush sofas to...

Reading the views prior to my booking I was a bit apprehensive about choosing this hotel, however I am really pleased I did as I could not fault the location, the room and the service. This hotel has had some bad reviews all under the previous ownership and the new people have obviously worked very hard to turn it around....

We stayed at Lake View Country House recently. The room we stayed in was gorgeous- very recently refurbished, the brand new mattress was much appreciated on our walking break. I must start by saying that the breakfast was incredible- the local sausages were delicious and the breakfast was huge, a perfect start to a day walking. The owners Paul and...

We booked the last of the rooms at Lakeview late, en route to Scotland. The price was reduced to £153 for the night, including breakfast. Paying this kind of money we had a level of expectation which unfortunately was not met on any level at all. 'Lakeview' should change its name to 'CarparkView' because that's all we got from our...

First time staying here - we will return! Found this when researching where to stay in Grasmere for a few days walking break. The welcome was warm and genuine from the two couples who run the house, great location by the lake, very peaceful but only a minute or two from the centre of the town. Parking was great in...

This was our first visit to the Lakes District and what a lovely location this turned out to be. A new nice little self contained pet friendly apartment with a lovely walk via its private access along the river to lake Grasmere, easy access into town, comfortable beds, free car parking and excellent wifi. We could easily have stayed a...

Four of us decided on a last minute dash up to the Lakes to enjoy the last bit of a great autumn. Staying at Lake View Country House made it perfect! Friendly, warm, spotlessly clean & perfectly located in Grasmere. The breakfast was superb & Beth & Paul had some great ideas for walks and things to do. We loved...

Beth and Paul are doing a great job in their first year as owners. They are very positive and helpful, and you should not hesitate to ask if you need something. Some rooms are larger than others, so you may want to check size, and also to ask if there is one available with the beautiful lake view. In any...

We made a booking for the Lake Room for 4 nights via the B&B's website, but when we arrived at the B&B, we were told that they didn't have our booking as the B&B have just changed owners and no rooms were currently available.

Hello Victoria, Thank you for leaving us a review, and apologies that you weren't able to stay with us. We moved into Lake View Country House at the end of July and very unfortunately we have had a couple of occasions when the previous owners did not write a booking into the diary. We're so sorry this happened to you....

Lake View is a great base to explore the Grasmere area. We were in the Lake Room which was big enough for the two of us and all our walking gear. The view from the windows was lovely over the fells. After a long day walking the high fells, the jacuzzi bath was wonderful . Beth and Paul, the owners,...
