visisted with the wife and dogs for a last minute bank holiday booking. pricing was very reasonable and altho we had a smaller room in comparison to the price of neigbouring b&b's and the fact we booked last minute it was a very fair.

the b&b is set in portinscale which is a 20 minute leisurly walk into town or a 5 minute drive. the biggest benifit for the location is the massive car park the place has - this will be a big asset in summer when parking is at a premium.

we arrived and was met by the owner phill in the car park who gave us a hand with our bags and showed us our room. the room was clean, warm with a excellent shower with great pressure. nothing worse than a trickly shower!

breakfast in the morning is fruit, ceral and then a full cooked breakfast. all local produce and very nice. the dinning room has a log burner and a couple of settees too.
theres also lots of walks around the area and plenty of eatries in keswick.

from talking to phil and family theyve only just taken over the hotel after a big change in careers. on efffort alone they are doing a fantastic job. they have inherited some of the previous owners 'rules', one of which was that dogs werent to be left alone in the rooms at any time. holidaying in several dog friendly b&b, this is always the case on a night but acceptable at breakfast - as dogs arent allowed in the breakfast rooms. the previous owners didnt even allow this during breakfast - reading through the old reviews someone actually left after booking in because of this. to appeal to the dog walkers this 'rule' would benifit from been relaxed and is something i discussed with phill, who was happy for the feedback. on the flip side we wasnt charged any extra for the dogs, something which we usually are and accept is part of the dog friendly package.

overall it was a very pleasant stay and highly recommend the grange. we will hopefully re-visit at some point and hope to find phill and family have aquired (two) dogs of their own for the children :-)

Phil, Charlotte and family, made our stay in the Lake District, very enjoyable. Having just taken over the hotel, they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The hotel, the town of Keswick, in fact, the whole area, is extremely dog friendly. There are ongoing improvements being carried out to the hotel. Although, no evening meals are provided, the breakfast is superb and served in a lovely breakfast room. Using this hotel as a base, the area has many walks, for all abilities. Flat walks around Derwent Water and walks up the many hills. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, including Nip our Border Collie and have no hesitation in recommending this lovely hotel

Room Tip: The best views are on the car park side of the hotel

Thanks you so much family Gilbert! We loved having you to stay, it's great to be able to host families - especially ones we can help discover the area and enjoy it as much as we do. We hope to see you again sometime - although we know it's a long way from home! All best, Charlotte, Phil and the boys

Our Stay at Rickerby Grange was as good as it gets. We have now visited twice in 4 weeks. Phil & Charlotte are very attentive and Portinscale itself is a delightful village.
We will be visiting again in the near future.

A warm personal welcome from the whole family, a well appointed cosy room and a delicious locally sourced breakfast freshly cooked to order - what more could you ask for? Only a longer stay next time! Thanks Charlotte and Phil. Hope to be back before too long.
