    My wife and I stayed here with two other couples as part of our Coast To Coast walk.
    We were met on arrival by Rob - one of the owners of this absolutely beautiful hotel. He was very welcoming and check-in for the six of us was very efficient.
    The location is perfect. Right in the heart of the gorgeous village of Grasmere.
    The grounds are lovely, which is where we had a drink after checking in and getting cleaned up.
    Dinner was an experience. Clearly Anton (in the kitchen) and Rob (maitre d) take a great deal of pride in all aspects of their hotel and restaurant. The food was spectacular and the service was perfect. My only criticism would be that we thought Rob was a bit tough on a junior staff member who is clearly learning but still doing a great job. Such is their perfectionism.
    After our evening meal, we retired to the lounge for coffee and tea, where Rob brought out a cake for one of our group who was celebrating their birthday.
    Breakfast was probably the biggest and highest quality spread we had on the whole Coast to Coast walk.
    The packed lunch was of a similar standard to the other meals.
    Rob and Anton have renovated the entire hotel with care and pride. The lounge area and dining room were very nice. Our rooms were immaculate and the en-suites amazing. They were much larger than you would expect in a hotel of this age.
    I have rated this as 5/5 but would have given it 6 if I could.
    My wife and I hope to return one day to do Helvellyn and Striding Edge. It will give us a great excuse to come back and stay again (and for longer) and do some other walks in the area.

    I wish I could work out this TravelPod, I suppose I will have it down pat in 4 weeks time! Anyway, we had a free day in Richmond where all we did was tour the castle, walk around the Saturday market, which was very small and had some lovely cheeses and breads on sale and then - wait for it- Greg sat down in the lounge of the B&B, read a book for an hour or so AND had a nap. Obviously no mountains nearby to climb. All this was in preparation for the 37.5 km walk on ...

    MICHELIN STAR DINING

    ... a little sloppy in comparison to the sponge and did not seem to go with the plating of all the prior dishes that evening.

    My conclusion after this experience is that I need to try another Michelin star venue. My review of this one is that it is not worth the money despite the luxurious setting and beautiful views of the hills and the lake beyond them. I hope to eat at the Gilpin Hotel before I depart the Lake ...

Then it was time to wander back to find a spot of lunch, itwas now 2pm!!! and I was starving. We had decided against a packed lunch as there are only so many days you can eat ham n cheese! Non of the establishments we passed did anything we ...

    ... lunch we sat on down on a few piles of rocks, which weren't the most comfortable only to find 5 mins further on, a picnic bench!!!!! Spent a lovely afternoon in the sunshine, balancing on logs ( it had to be done) and eventually made our way back to the car. We were going to go back to the site and then go back in to Keswick for chippies but the traffic was soooooo bad we decided just to stop en-route park ...

    ... in the little stream we were walking over and Meg the dog was not impressed with the sight of her treats floating down the side of the hill, trying to hoover them up before they disappeared. Eventually made it down to the bottom and over the smallest bridge in Cumbria, stopping again for more photo opportunities. Found a path down the side of the hill through some woods which bought us out by a youth hostel which sold tea and cake, so we just had to stop for lunch, ...
