This stylish, adults-only B&B, with classy hotel-grade standards, reflects owner Jacky Godfrey's warmth, eye for design and passionate attention to detail. The five bedrooms, spread over the second and third floors, have top-quality furnishings, including striking feature wallpapers, smart armchairs and modern bathrooms. And there's plenty of space, with both a dining room and sitting room, the latter with honesty bar, local books and walking guides; lots of inspiration for those fell-walks you've promised to do! We also found it a nice place to relax over a night cap after returning from dinner. The B&B is a 10- to 15-minute walk from pubs and restaurants, so it's a place for a quiet weekend rather than late nights out. Breakfast is cooked to order by Jacky, who can also help plan a day out with her great knowledge of local tried-and-tested walks and hikes.



The views over fields and fells are a joy to wake up to, and several decent walks can be done from the doorstep.

Raise View is a short walk from the traditional Lakeland village of Grasmere, once home to the poet Wordsworth, and a 15-minute drive from the popular tourist town of Ambleside, with plenty of shops and restaurants.
By car: The hotel is 2 hours from Manchester, around 3 hours from Edinburgh and 5 hours 15 mins from London. Free private parking is available on-site.
By train: Trains run from Manchester Piccadilly (just over 1 hour), London Euston (3 hours) and Edinburgh (2 hours) to Oxenholme Lake District station. The hotel is a 45-minute taxi ride from the station.

Style & Character

Raise View suits couples and solo travellers - particularly outdoors-lovers - who want a more homely atmosphere than hotels offer, but still like their comforts. We love the relaxed atmosphere - and the space to wind down.

Service & Facilities

We love sitting in the garden after a day's walking, with glass in hand and a perfect peaceful view of the surrounding fells.

  • Lounge
  • Honesty bar
  • Breakfast room

​The views of the fells are a delight to wake up to - and definitely made us leap out of bed. Silver How is worth the extra money for the space, fell views - from the bed, too - and the spacious, walk-in shower bathroom.

Wordsworth, Easedale, Helm Crag, Rothay Suite, Silver How Suite
Facilities include: king size double bed, ensuite shower room, TV, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, towels, hairdryer

Food & Drink

The full pot of decent coffee encouraged us to linger over breakfast longer than we intended. For evening meals, Grasmere has several good places within walking distance; check out The Jumble Room and The Yan.
