Little gem!
Wonderful location, wonderful rooms with fantastic bed and bedding. High quality fitments with plenty of cutlery etc and handy small kitchen. The views are amazing and bathroom was massive in Riverside. Our only tiny negative was the sqeeky floor boards but they were being replaced as we left. The breakfast was brilliant just a short walk down the lane and staff very accommodating. Could not fault any of our stay and will return

Great little B&B in Grasmere!
Great little B&B in Grasmere village right by the lake. Very hospitable and friendly service with super advice on local walks, restaurants, etc. B&B has been done up really nicely with modern bathrooms, everything you need in the rooms, and a decent breakfast to get you on your way in the morning!

Great guesthouse
Lakeview is an easy walk into town but feels like you are out in the country. It is an original stone house with renovated ensuite bathrooms while retaining original features. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is a great supply of different teas, biscuits, a chocolate each night and decent toiletries. Breakfast was simple but tasty. It was a wonderful stay.
