Outstanding food - Rating 5/5

Seatoller House is simply the perfect base to walk the wonderful hills around you and come back to a superb four course dinner. The breakfast ranges from delicious Cumberland sausage to avocado on toast and is hugely generous. The rooms are extremely comfortable, and clean and the atmosphere warm and cosy, not least through the welcome of Nigel and Patricia. Thoroughly recommend.

Quirky with loads of history and traditions - Rating 5/5

If you want modern luxury and convenience then this place is not for you - if you don't get on with other people then this place is not for you - or so you might think!Perhaps you should try it though as it might make you think about what is important in your life.This place is almost 400 years old and you can't mess with a 400 year old building to make everything en-suite and full of plugs for your USB charging cables (just bring an adapter or extension gang lead). This place has character; Nigel and Trish are fantastic hosts, and the food is fantastic. There are no private tables for breakfast or dinner, there are no a la carte menus but these things are all unnecessary.I'll say it again the food is fantastic but if you have a dietary issue with the planned menu then let Trish know and she'll work around this.Everyone sits at 2 (sometimes 3) communal tables and we all talk - no one stares at their phone - in fact I don't remember seeing a phone at mealtimes in the 4 days we stayed.We learned about the traditions of Seatoller House especially the annual hunt with human hare and hounds that has been staged for 130 years.The Borrowdale valley is beautiful and it's a great location for all types of walks.The Scafells, Gables, High Spy, Dale Head, Glaramara and Haystacks are on your doorstep but there are plenty of lakeside walks or lower fells for those looking for something a little less adventurous.There's even a bus stop right outside the door to get to Keswick or Buttermere.I've stayed here with my grandson for fell walking trips, and this time with my wife.We absolutely loved it and will definitely be returning. Over 90% of guests are repeaters and loads have clocked up many years of repeating.Thanks to all the team for looking after us.

Another wonderful stay! - Rating 5/5

Coming back to Seatoller House always feels like coming home and this was no exception. Nigel and Trish are wonderful hosts and as usual we ate extremely well with very generous portions and breakfasts to set us up for long days on the hills. We also enjoyed some very convivial company during our stay, with an international flavour.On this occasion the weather was less kind than sometimes and we were also able to appreciate the excellent drying room! We look forward to our next visit.

Hospitality and Tradition at its Best - Rating 5/5

The house of tradition and attention to detail. The place of hospitality that brings different people together in a gentle jet profound way. Seatoller House does not pretend to be special but through that it really is - as great places and things so often are.
