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.

Another last minute and tasty breakfast but a bit less daunting than yesterday's and we were off to the bus stop. Traveled north to Grasmere where William Wordsworth lived. We strolled around the village, stopping for a cappuccino early on and lunch a bit later, both at the same spot - The Miller Howe ...
... En route we passed Roman ruins which were excavations of the bases of walls. From those few stones archaeologists deduced the structure of the fort. A little further on we passed a man sitting on a bench by the lake strumming a guitar and singing, a pleasant addition to the walk. Light lunch, window shopping, people watching. ...

Patterdale is our destination, it has rained during the night again, so soggy under foot. Niice big mountain to tackle. Got a another walker with us today, Katie has volunteered to support us, certainly good for morale. Me and Ryan tackled Helvellyn and Striding Edge, that was scary, but a proud moment for me, I really needed to do that with Ryan, Martin and Katie walked around it, still a tough ...
... and what ever else peaks your fancy.
After checking into our B&B we set off for a walk downtown which is only about 10 minutes and took us to a great Italian restaurant that was recommended by many a folk who had stayed at our B&B and they were not wrong. We had some wonderful dishes of Italian food and some great wine to round off our evening. And after a good meal it was time for a little walk around the town to work it off ...
