Reviews - West Vale Country House

5Visit England Assessed Bed and Breakfast Ratings explained
Far Sawrey, Nr Hawkshead, Ambleside, LA22 0LQ
West Vale Country Guest House is an elegant traditional Lakeland stone built house of considerable character and charm, built in the 1890's as a Victorian gentleman's residence.

Set in a wonderful location with beautiful views and offering fantastic Lake District hospitality, West Vale is one of the Lake Districts best kept secrets.

The villages of Near Sawrey & Far Sawrey are well known for their association with Beatrix Potter whose house "Hilltop" is only a few minutes walk away. West Vale B&B is nestled deep in the heart of the Lake District National Park in the beautiful village of Far Sawrey which is only a short walk away from Lake Windermere and Esthwaite water. A peaceful location surrounded by all there is to enjoy in the nearby villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness and Coniston.

The stunning location overlooks Grizedale Forest and The Old Man of Coniston. The surrounding area is a pot pourri of cultural, historic and architectural interest.

The room was very luxurious and our hosts were very welcoming. The views made the experience amazing
Our hosts made the experience extremely enjoyable with their hospitality.Their were lots of little touches in the room like complimentary sherry and in the bathroom there were moulton brown toiletries to add that little extra . The breakfast was excellent ( we had the cooked ) prepared from locally sourced products.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Beautiful
Excellent service, lovely staff. Room was great, the only downside was the shower pressure. Breakfast was lovely. Perfect little break.
