I have just returned from four nights at Sawrey Ground and I was very impressed by this lovely B&B. Mike and Gill are excellent hosts and, after a long journey, we were greeted with tea and homemade cake which was available every day. The accommodation was spotless and we were made to feel very welcome. The breakfasts were lovely and...

We chose Sawrey Ground primarily on the reviews we had read and can now add our own. Mike and Gill are the most considerate of hosts, providing excellent, clean accommodation alongside first rate breakfasts and afternoon teas. The quality of the food is excellent, with home made bread and cakes a particular delight. We needed advice for one of our...

We recently stayed 3 nights at Sawrey Ground B&B in July 2013. We were welcomed with afternoon tea and homemade slice. Delicious. Mike & Gill are the perfect hosts of this beautiful 17th C cottage which is spotless and extremely comfortable, not forgetting the peaceful setting. Their attention to detail is amazing, their friendliness very welcome. We were made to...

My wife and I have stayed here almost every year for the past nine. We keep returning because it is an exceptional venue in every respect. The historic property is set in wonderful grounds, a short walk or drive from Tarn Hows and close to the centre of the lovely village of Hawkshead. The rooms are spotlessly clean and fitted...

Only confirmed that I was heading to the Lakes with about 3 days notice, so lots of hurried searching around for somewhere convenient to lay my head. Further complication that I only needed one night (a Saturday) whereas most places strictly demanded 2 nights over a weekend. Mike and Gill at Sawrey Ground couldn't have been more helpful or hospitable....

The best introduction is to say that all of the other positive reviews of Sawrey Ground are right, and there's not much left to say without being repetitive...about the peaceful location, the excellent breakfasts and afternoon teas and the great surrounds of the Lake District. What I can add is that Mike and Gill are a very warm and genuinely...

Sawrey Ground provides the perfect place to stay for bed and breakfast if you are a couple or adults travelling with friends as we were. Mike and Gill are very welcoming and hospitable, and they provide the most delicious homemade cakes (literally made that day in their kitchen) and cups of tea/coffee in front of the open fire when you...

A most amazing place to stay. It is in idyllic settings and it is the most beautiful cottage. In fact I would love to live in it myself. The hosts are second to none. I look forward to the next time and hope it is soon!!!

This is a delightful old house. We had a warm welcome plus freshly baked cake and coffee. All rooms very clean and comfortable. The setting close to Tarn Hows is perfect especially for those who enjoy walking. Good choice of food at breakfast.

I have visited Sawrey Ground on several occasions over the years and I have at last decided to write a review! I am not sure about the dates when I have stayed so take the listed date with a pinch of salt. Mike and Gill do a wonderful job of welcoming people and attending to the details that make for...
