The Lancrigg is set in the totally peaceful and picturesque village of Grasmere. We are situated just 800 yards from the the very busy village centre. The accommodation is comfortable and relaxing and makes a truly wonderful escape, access to the walks are right out of our door. There are no roads beyond Lancrigg, just the tumbling fells and streams. The house has many connections with past and present writers, artists and musicians. There is a sense of peace when relaxing at Lancrigg that nobody can quite put their finger on, some suggest it may be the water that flows under the building through the Helm Crag rock. The Lancrigg is open to non-residents with a fantastic variety of refreshments available from both the restaurant and The Poets Cafe & Bar which opens from 8:30am for breakfast and serves a classic lunch menu from 11am untill late. The restaurant is available from 6:30pm. The Lancrigg restaurant offers a fantastic menu to suit all diets.

This hotel is small and is very welcoming. We loved our short stay. We stayed in a family room that was clean and comfortable but there were still some cobwebs around (character building!). The 3 staff we met were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast...More
And Faulty Towers service. Had to wait behind 4 ladies ordering coffee. Not a problem usually, but they'd run out of cups. 10 minutes later I ordered a pint and a half of bitter. Barmaid couldn't find any half glasses so put a half in...More

Generally very nice. It might not be for everyone as The Lancrigg just a little bit off in a way we found very entertaining. However, not worthy of more than 3 stars for a few reasons.
So, good things first: staff were very friendly. The...More

Dear Paul R,
Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. Sorry that you found a few things comical, let me try and explain some of what is going on behind the scenes:

We stayed for one night earlier in the summer. I would say my only issue with the property was the approach drive which was very bumpy to the point of me grinding to a halt. The hotel is in a lovely location with a great patio, a little too far really for a walk into town. I would say that it isn't run to the standard of a larger hotel as it is a small business and I think had just been taken over. It was a bit hit and miss as far as service, but nothing to take it to the point where I would say don't go there. Low numbers of staff, one serving normally for meals and the menu is somewhat limited. Breakfast was fine. One slight issue, a lot of the rooms have jet baths. They are very noisy and there is a sign asking guests not to use them after 10 pm. At midnight our next door room was using it and we couldn't sleep. I went downstairs to find someone, it was deserted. So I phoned the hotel and a young lady turned up in a bath robe. I told her the problem, and she asked if I had knocked their door to speak to them. Obviously I hadn't ... but nothing was done further so we just had to wait until it had finished. Personally I wouldn't stay there again, but that wouldn't stop me from recommending the hotel for a short break due to it's location, and the staff were incredibly friendly
