We stayed here for two nights this week (April 2017). Cannot praise the place enough. Everything was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. The place was so quiet and peaceful with lots of bird activity and the odd rabbit on the lawn. Wouldn't hesitate to return. We took breakfast in the guest house the morning of our departure and again, everywhere...

I thought this place was fantastic and great value for money. The rooms are clean and well kept, the scenery is beautiful and it is in a great location. The staff are friendly and can't help you enough, even offering us a lift into the town centre! Breakfast was lovely, cooked well and high quality food produce was used. Would...

Booked a last minute trip, first time here. Cannot recommend Graysonside enough. We had everything we needed and wanted. Beautiful clean, warm house with excellent facilities. Delicious, well stocked and generous breakfast and lovely staff who gave us great suggestions for the local area. Don't hesitate, you'll love it!

This has been our third stay with Janette and Andrew whilst in Cockermouth for the Malcolm Wilson Stages Rally. Graysonside is spotlessly clean, beds are very comfortable and its very peaceful. The home cooked breakfasts are to die for using all locally sourced products served in a conservatory overlooking the beautiful Cumbrian countryside. Janette and Andrew are a wonderful friendly...

I would just like to thank you for a wonderful stay. The trip to Cumbria was to be a special visit for my in-laws who both grew up in the area and hadn’t been back for over 40 years. They were blown away by the room (Garden Cottage), hospitality and kindness you showed them. Our room (Courtyard Cottage) was equally...

We stayed here after attending a wedding nearby. Great hospitality from the moment we booked. Nothing was any trouble to ensure our stay was comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a varied menu and everything was cooked to perfection. Just sorry that we had only one night at this friendly, well run bed and breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Graysonside Guest House is a former Farm House offering high quality Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Cockermouth. All rooms provide space, quality and comfort. Apartments are also available at affordable prices for both Bed and Breakfast and Self Catering. Graysonside is set within the Lake District National Park and is just a few minutes away from the centre of Cockermouth - home to one of our famous poets William Wordsworth. Graysonside suits both corporate/business and tourist guests, situated in a very good location for both the Western Lakes (Bassenthwaite, Loweswater, Crummock and Buttermere), as well as the towns of Workington, Whitehaven and Maryport. We are only 20 minutes' drive to Keswick and 30 minutes to Carlisle. Due to its location Graysonside is streaming with wildlife, we are regularly visited by a red squirrel, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, an abundance of garden birds on our feeders and rabbits roaming the garden. You can sit and watch our wildlife from our breakfast room. Graysonside also offers the additional benefits of free off road parking, a secure cycle lock up and free Wi-Fi. Graysonside has been recognized as five star gold by the English Tourism Council and rewarded a breakfast award. We look forward to welcoming you to Cockermouth and providing you with a wonderful stay at Graysonside. ... more   less
