“Fantastic stay, with exceptional food!”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

What a fantastic B & B. Not having to go to the pub for dinner was a great surprise - delicious home cooked food. Loads of choice from light bites to pizza to full meals (lamb, mash and veg, and treacle pudding were particularly good.). Room was warm, clean and comfy and a lovely place to explore. Highly reccomended.

We stayed for a long weekend (3nights) at the end of November in the room called L'al Gem. Booking was easy by phone and the gentleman I spoke to was very polite and welcoming, forthcoming with letting me know about their current 3 nights for price of 2 deal and the very sensible cancellation policy. The room was clean and tidy and well heated which was much needed on returning from wet, cold days walking. The bathroom is a little run-down but clean. The little extras in the rooms (Night light by bed, mini bottle of wine on arrival etc) and bathroom (toiletries, cotton buds etc) are really thoughtful. I was delighted to see a red squirral from the bedroom door (along with beautiful views!). Breakfast is brilliant with the biggest selection of jams and marmalades I have ever seen and local products used in the cooked breakfasts. The owners and staff were delightful and very helpful at every request - including chilling a bottle of champagne for us and leaning us a wine cooler when we went to retrieve it. Patterdale is a beautiful place and Old Water Veiw the perfect base from which to explore it.

Room Tip: L'al Gem and The Bothy are both in a seperate building to the main house so offer some privacy...

Stayed here for 2 nights in;"The Bothy" which is separate from the main house and offers a little more privacy, in a lovely tranquil spot with the river making it way down off the mountains.

A midweek stay at a special price of £70 for 2 nights for 2 people..
A cracking breakfast greets you in the morning with good thick slices of bacon among the locally sourced ingredients. And the array of marmalade's to spread on your toast is amazing.
The room had a nice big comfy bed and a bathroom with a bath and shower and those little extras which greet you on arrival like the 2 glass bottle of red wine and little mint chocolates left on your towel on the bed and not forgetting the family of teddy bears which share with you.

Other thoughtful extras included tissues and cotton buds and white bath robes.Although you cannot book the weather in November you can book the Old Water View and I strongly recommend that you do. The special offer runs through till March and Ian will extend you a very warm welcome.

Room Tip: Choose The Bothy or Little Gem for your stay

As an overnight stay on my coast to coast walk I couldn't have chosen a better place than Old Water View to stay. It was not only Ian's warm welcome that set Old Water View above the rest, there were the comfortable rooms and a really great breakfast to set us up for the day's walking. Ian's knowledge and experience is an added bonus. On the week in September when the hurricane blew through from the Atlantic not only did he provide us with the sensible advice not to go 'over the tops' on the next stage of our c2c but provided us with a safe alternative route.
I just wish we could have found a safe way, and within our weight restrictions, to bring some of his preserves back to Italy.

Ian is a wonderful host and is full of wisdom on the caost to coast walk and more than happy to share it. It is a very welcoming place and in a wonderful position. The drying room was good and it is only a short walk to the pub for dinner. The breakfast is very good and they accommodate early starts. The home made jams were a particular delight. The rooms are spacious and clean, with wonderful views over the river. A wonderful, restful spot after a long and wet days walk.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river
