Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jill & Bill. We took a rest day in Grasmere on our C2C walk and found this B&B just what we needed. We found on our walk that the host/hostess makes all the difference in your B&B stay and this was certainly true here. Thank you Jill!

Stayed 2 nights in Grasmere during the Coast 2 Coast and Silver Lea was very lovely. Had a large room with sitting area and full bath tub which was quite welcome after a long day of walking. Breakfast was the usual offering but porridge was great. Wifi was fine in our room.

Stayed here on coast to coast after passing many times. Room was really spacious with sitting area. Water pressure not good so struggled to run a bath. Breakfast was good although no sausage and bacon only on request when arrived

Thank you. We are sorry to hear you struggled to run a bath. We do have low water pressure and this can be an issue if demand is high. There is plenty of hot water and we hope that our guests will be rewarded by a relaxing soak in a bath, a cuppa and a well earned sit down. Often... More

Charming old stone house (but aren't they all?) and a welcome sight after our walk from Borrowdale. Good breakfast. Hostess warned us about the iffy wifi, but we had difficulty using it at all in room 3. It would connect in the hallway, then disconnect shortly thereafter in our room. Water pressure lacking for the shower. Comfortable beds. Quiet enough... More

A new word, interesting! Now I realise it means indifferent, yes if demand is high for wi-fi and water that may be so. Low water pressure and thick stone walls present challenges, Superfast broadband has improved the situation and there is plenty of hot water for our baths and showers. We hope that, as you kindly remarked, the good breakfast,... More

Just returned from a weekend in Grasmere, we stayed at Silver Lea and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful house and garden, right next to paths and walks to the fells. Great breakfast and hospitality, Jill has got it just right, the right level of interaction with guests, and free to come and go. Definitely will return for our annual anniversary trip,... More

Silver Lea is located a short walk away from Grasmere's city centre, the city famous for its association with the poet Wm. Wordsworth. We had a nice double room but there was nothing special about it and I thought the 98 pound rate was on the high side. The room amenities provided were only average. The small ensuite bathroom had...

Thank you for your review. Our twin beds are king sized and we use single duvets which we thought were suitable. Must check this out.

Silver Lea bed and breakfast is easy to get to for hikers on the Coast to Coast Walk. It's attractive and clean. The single room was heavenly -- appealing, comfortable, and a sparkling bathroom.

Glad staying with us in Grasmere suited you. This year over 300 C to C walkers have stayed with us, that's a lot of muddy boots. After coming over Greenup Edge, most people are eager to get them off and enjoy a well earned cuppa. My Dyson is very grateful. Good to hear that you enjoyed the village feel and... More

Super place to stay after our Rosthwaite to Grasmere C2C leg. Lovely, large, sunny twin room with en-suite bathroom. Good views of the fells and only a 5 minute walk into Grasmere. Friendly host and good breakfast. Would recommend.

Fantastic place and hosts. Great rooms with plenty of space and comfy chairs to sit and relax. Two minute walk to centre of Grasmere. Our car never moves when we get here handy for great walks. Good choice for breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts just ask!

This was great, so peaceful and such lovely host, free WiFi, great breakfast and a fantastic view. Can't fault the place and a very tranquil rest after the walk, would definitely return for a more leisurely weekend in Grasmere, but if you are doing the C2C then this is the place to stay.
