Very good accommodation in a picturesque location. Lovely views and a homely feel from arrival to departure. Stayed 2 nights and would definitely return. David was most helpful and friendly at all times and the room was great.

Cancelled before I even arrived. Called to clarify details about our room type as it wasn't exactly cheap £150 for the night. A child answered phone, passed phone to a rude man, didn't care for his tone. He was apparently checking people in and inconvenienced by the timing of my call and was like 'well your booking isn't till may...

Thank you for your feedback. I was disappointed to read that you did not have a pleasant experience when contacting during the bank holiday weekend to inquire about a booking you had made six weeks ahead via Bookings.com .At the time of your call the reception was busy with check ins and offered to call you back after checking in...

The rooms at High Grassings are beautiful, the beds are so comfortable I didn't want to get up! Breakfast was delicious and the owner was so accommodating with plenty of tips and advice such as getting the ferry home over Lake Windermere and where to eat. We would definitely return!

I had a lovely email from David a couple of days before with perfect directions and a little guide to the area. We had booked to stay here and booked the barn suite as a treat for my 30th Birthday. The views from High Grassing were idyllic. It is only around 2 miles from Hawkshead and 4 miles from Ambleside....

Beautiful location on side of hill overlooking rolling countryside and hills. Bright rooms with most white décor. Breakfast is taken in the conservatory. There is a choice of three hot dishes for breakfast each individually cooked. Can be difficult to find as it is two miles from where Outgate is marked on many maps. Only accepts cash or cheques, no...

The most idyllic and peaceful setting with fantastic views but still within walking distance of shops bars and restaurants. We were in the barn suite which was spacious and luxurious with a great patio which we unfortunately couldn't use due to the weather! So will definitely be back to take full advantage soon. The owners were both friendly and helpful...

Lovely B and B with friendly hosts. The room was very clean and felt fresh (also great view). For a short break we had everything we needed and looked forward to getting back on an evening as the room was so comfortable. Breakfast was a nice touch with a good selection to suit most tastes served at the time you...

We stayed in the barn suite on Saturday with our 10 year old twin boys, on arrival Dave was extremely helpful in advising the suitable places to go with a young family for our evening meal. The barn suite was perfect for us and the kids loved stopping in a "barn". Lots of nice little touches including a small note...
