This was our second visit in two years. We enjoyed our stay last year so much that we went out of our way to return. The hotel is very near Grasmere Village but is quiet and very well managed. We had incorrectly stated our early check in request and arrived two hours before they expected us. The staff was very understanding and went out of their way to make us comfortable.
The food is the reason that many guests return. Simon and Glynnis are able to find the finest chefs who work with local products. The menu always has great choices.
There are many other places to stay in Grasmere and I've stayed at many of them but the Oak Bank is the place that I will return to as long as Simon and Glynnis are the proprietors.
