We stayed here for 3 nights and had the most lovely stay. The owners couldn't do enough for you. As a private place the service was really personal and they were interested in everyone who stay. Breakfasts are totally delicious with fresh bread and jams, fruit salad and porridge (with whiskey if you choose) plus an array of cooked options....

You cant ask for more than this! A perfect environment for burning off the calories with walks in the mountains, returning to a roaring fire and perfect hosts, who had boundless passion to make our stay perfect - and that they did. Superb food, stylish and very comfortable accommodation, delightful surrounds - all of which were rounded off by bonus...

After staying at a hotel for three nights over Christmas, we decided to extend our visit to the Lake District by an extra night so we could enjoy the scenery.

I am a sculpture and was interested in hiking the sculpture trail at Grizedale Park. So Grizedale Lodge was a wonderful find. It fit perfectly into our schedule since the park and sculpture trails was only a 15 minute walk away. Richard greeted at the door and showed us around. The rooms were very inviting and the living room had...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. There are some lovely sculptures in the forest and well worth searching them out, as you can walk straight from the front door into the forest. The roads can seem narrow when you are not used to them so I always advise everyone to drive especially carefully as you may...

If I were designing my ideal place to stay it would be here. The decor is very tasteful with top quality Morris wallpaper, individual rooms all in a stunning location. Do pre book evening meals, richard and caroline are very welcoming hosts and the food is really really good and the wines reasonably priced.

Thank you for the review and for liking the way Debs (my wife) has decorated the room, not sure where Caroline came from - but don't tell my wife!! Debs is also a great cook and it is often relaxing to come back after a day of adventure and just stay in and enjoy her cooking. All the best Richard

Thank you for your review. The location is great for exploring the Lake District, being only 8 miles from Ambleside and 24 miles from Keswick. There are often deer around early morning and late evening and so it is always best to drive slowly on the narrow twisty lanes, and a lovely bonus when you spot them. I hope you...
