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.

Today we were expecting a shorter and maybe easier day.
However, the temperature soared to 27 degrees (which doesn't seem much until you are walking for hours in the direct sun), there was no breeze, and clouds were few and far between.
And the distance may have been shorter, but the degree of difficulty clearly stepped up a notch.
... are the tea finger sandwiches which are 1) egg salad and water cress, 2) lox, cucumbers and cream cheese and 3), the upper tier has scones and "clotted cream". I still haven't figured what that is. It looks, smells and tastes like butter; definitely not Parkay! My favorite tier, however is the middle tier with banana bread, raspberry-almond tarts, berry tarts, lemon tarts and orange/white chocolate mouse tarts!
Three hundred years ago, The Grand Tour was the traditional trip of Europe undertaken by mainly upper-class European young men of means. It served as an educational rite of passage. With nearly unlimited funds, aristocratic connections and months or even years to roam, they commissioned paintings, perfected their language skills, learned fencing and riding, and mingled with the upper crust of the Continent.
Wow! Only 2 weeks before we leave. Thought it might be good time to start posting the preparations. Actually over dinner tonight at Keswick Binny suggested it so these are especially for you Binny! We maybe away for 6.5 weeks but the actual preparations have been going on now for about 6 months!
So we have a file full of info and booking details etc.....as you would expect there are many, many lists which will be required over the coming days and weeks! ...
I was woken at 3 am by the sound of moderately heavy rain. It continued on and off until breakfast and I thought we were going to need our waterproofs. However the rain held off as we left Orton, the cloud base slowly rose, the gloomy light brightened, and by early afternoon we were walking in the sunshine again. Today's 25 km leg was fairly straightforward again walking through ...
