We are regular visitors to Grasmere and How Foot Lodge is our usual B&B. Experienced nearly all the rooms now and never had a bad room or bad nights sleep. The breakfast is good with cereals, fresh fruit and several cooked options. Prices are very reasonable for Grasmere. Looking forward to our next visit for my birthday in October.

This was a great find. The room (sun lounger) was large and spacious and very relaxing. The location ( close to Dove cottage)is good and quiet. We had an excellent breakfast in the morning. For the lakes and grasmere the pricing is very competitive and excellent value for money

We really enjoyed staying here. Kate was very welcoming and friendly. The room was great. Nice clean bathroom, really comfortable beds, the breakfast range was good and the fry-ups (meat and vegetarian options) were spot on. We we definitely recommend staying here :-)

Visited for one night on the Coast to Coast walk. Very welcoming and a lovely large room with a shower over the bath. Beautiful house and wonderful breakfast of a lovely fresh fruit salad. Visited 18 B and Bs/Guest houses/ pubs in 18 nights and this was one of the best. Will visit again.

This was our first stay here although our friends we stayed with have been coming regularly for the past 15 years or so. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, large comfortable rooms with character and excellent breakfasts with lovely fresh fruit salad as starters. The location is very good for lots of walks.

Our second stay at How Foot Lodge. As before - a lovely B&B - a real find. Large comfortable rooms in a house with lots of character. Superb fresh fruit salad to get breakfast off to a good start. The village is only a few minutes walk away.

We had the lovely spacious double room on the ground floor with a conservatory and access to the garden. This is the first time we have stayed here and have already booked to return in September! The breakfast choice was very good and delicious. We received a very warm welcome and everything we needed was in place.
