Perfect Holiday
Staying with Patsy, Mike and Gracie at Summerhill Country House has been the highlight of our trip. Not only is the accommodation and location superb, but as hosts Patsy and Mike are the loveliest and funniest couple you could hope to meet. Mike had us in stitches with his wit and stories over breakfast, and Patsy, when not making her delicious biscuits and chocolates, was always happy to stop for a chat. We will be sending all our friends to Summerhill. Kerry and Ken

Summerhill - if I could give it 10 stars I would do so. This beautiful old house is run by a hospitable and friendly couple who simply cannot do enough to make their guests comfortable and happy. The house is superbly- maintained, attractively-decorated and spotlessly-clean. The garden is gorgeous and the breakfast is top notch, made with local produce and cooked with care. We were given delicious home-made cakes on arrival and a supply biscuits and chocs made by Patsy were put into our room and replenished when my husband had eaten them all! Summerhill has views for miles and is in an ideal spot for walking in the area. We will definitely return.

Relaxing Break In A Lovely Part Of The Lake District
This is a lovely Lakeland House, close to Tarn Hows (on the well-signed walk from Hawkshead Village). Mike and Patsy are wonderful hosts, who welcome guests as they should be welcomed. We immediately felt at home and that paved the way for a relaxing break. We chose the superior room, which had a bay window with good views down towards Hawkshead and beyond. Some lovely touches such as a home made truffle chocolate , fresh milk and a communal wine cooler in which to leave a bottle of wine to share on our return from dinner in the village. Good quality breakfast with local ingredients.

Perhaps for a superior room, the shower could have been a bit more up to date; the shower head needed replacing. Other rooms of equal size and décor were equally lovely and so this would be a way of distinguishing the room.

Fantastic Location, Beautiful Home And Lovely Hosts
From the lovely warm welcome we received at the beginning of our trip to the end ,Patsy and Mike’s hospitality was excellent and can’t be faulted.

Firstly the setting of the property is incrediblely beautiful, I will miss waking up to such stunning and peaceful views every morning. The rooms are tastefully and nicely furnished, all modern and very comfortable but in keeping with the homes style. And the en-suit was very modern and nicely done too. There is also a wonderful spa bath ( separate and shared) to help you unwind further. Every morning a wonderful cooked breakfast or continental is available also and compliments to the chef Patsy it was spot on every time and set us up for a good day ahead. Mike was a great and very entertaining host for breakfast and very knowledgeable about local attractions and history which was helpful.

For me it’s the little finishing touches however that have ensured we will stay here again, such as the individual Home made truffles every day by the bed, the Home made biscuits freshly made for the tea tray and the tea and cake reception upon arrival

A truly fabulous place with great hosts.

Top Of The Class!
I stayed at the Summer Hill Country House with my husband for four nights in May. On arrival we were greeted by Patsy who made us feel very welcome and plied us with tea and lovely homemade cakes! The room was cosy and the bed was extremely comfortable. Each day Patsy left some home made chocolates in our room. There was a different flavour each day and they were delicious! At breakfast we met Mike who runs the B&B with Patsy. Mike is super and has a great sense of humour. Both Mike and Patsy are very knowledgeable about the Lake District and really helped my husband and I plan the trips we wanted to do each day. The breakfast each morning was brilliant. Everything was prepared to perfection and there was plenty of choice. The B&B is in a great location, a short walk to the beautiful Tarn Hows and well placed for the main Lakes tourist spots. There is plenty of parking on site as well which was good. Mike and Patsy are such accommodating hosts, nothing is too much trouble. All in all it was a perfect stay. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone thinking of travelling to the Lake District.

Premium Quality B&b In A Lovely Location
This is a B&B where you are a guest rather than a boarder. The house is very attractive both inside and out. The ensuite room we had was comfortable and very well equipped. They keep fresh milk for tea and coffee in a little fridge in the breakfast room - not having to use UHT pretty much earns an extra star on its own! Patsy and Mike made us feel very welcome and took the time to give us tips about where to eat and what to do locally. Breakfast was a tasty and relaxing with a good choice of cereals, fruit and toast toppings. The house is in a rural location just a gentle walk from the beautiful Tarn Hows. For the phone obsessed: we found we had no signal, but the free WiFi worked very well. It\'s a great base from which to explore the south of the Lake District. All in all, recommended.

Having just returned from our eight stay at Summerhill we would like to share our thoughts on this fabulous venue.
The house is warm, welcoming and beautifully appointed with every need catered for by Patsy and Mike your hosts. As hosts, they could not be more friendly and helpful as well as thoughtful in the event of mishaps which often happen to walkers!
The breakfasts are delicious with a wide choice whether you need it or not. (Not a bit of grease on the fried choice).
After several visits the high standard remains and the location is peaceful and scenic within easy reach of places to eat.
We stay in many places and return again and again to Summerhill as our first choice.

Perfect Getaway For Couples!
The location is removed from the more active parts of the Lake District, which provided quiet mornings and evenings with serene views. The atmosphere, both in the facility and there about, was beautiful. Our hosts were welcoming - even at our late arrival time, were also pleasant and entertaining throughout our stay. Gracey, their little jack russell, was also a joy and entertained us by playing chase. The room was not spacious, but the bath was, and they provided everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The lounge was quiet, relaxing, and we enjoyed the warmth of the fire. Breakfast was full and very well-prepared. One would be hard-pressed to find a more delightful BnB experience. Easy access to major Lake District walks and other outdoor activities. We highly recommend you visit!

Summerhill is just a delightful place to stay if you enjoy walking and exploring the Lakes. Walk to Tarn Hows, to Hawkshead. Drive through country lanes to all the mountain walks and small towns with Mike and Patsy\'s expert guidance. Room was very comfortable with great shower and the breakfast was a very pleasant experience. I had two excellent dinners in Hawkshead five minutes drive away (the hotel is quite isolated and tranquil). The greatest pleasure, however, came from having as hosts two such enthusiasts for the Lake District who were so willing to pass on their knowledge of the mountains, photographic opportunities and local attractions.

If you are looking for a tranquil B&B as a base while you are exploring the Lake District, Summerhill is the perfect place. The beauty of nature is at your door, with sheep in one direction, cows in the other, birds singing everywhere and the most beautiful green fields nearby. I first came to Summerhill three years ago with a friend, and returned earlier this month. Mike and Patsy have maintained the high standard to which they keep their home.

My parents and I had a lovely stay at Summer Hill. Mike and Patsy are perfect hosts. The bedrooms and bright and modern, very comfortable beds, and nice touches such as in house toiletries, fresh milk on the hospitality shelf, and a daily home made chocolate waiting for you, after your day out.
The breakfast is plentiful, with a good selection. Patsy makes daily fresh fruit salad, and Mike makes the bread.
On this visit we were sightseeing rather than walking, but they both have good local knowledge of places to see, and Mike has laminated maps of walks.
There is a comfortable guests lounge with two leather sofas and a gas mock effect wood burning stove which will be so cosy on a cold evening. Outside is a summer house and plenty of chairs and tables, throughout the garden should you wish to spend time relaxing outside.
We enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely return.

What a friendly welcome, lovely homemade cake and tea on arrival. Patsy even suggested where we could get an evening meal on a busy Saturday night and then booked the table for us. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and the cooking was top notch. My wife needs assistance to walk and uses a wheelchair extensively, so we had booked the adapted room. Much thought had been given to this.There is a wheelchair lift from the ground floor into the bedroom. The wet room was spacious with plenty of handrails and the shower area has been designed so that the water does not flood the rest of the room. This all suited my wife it was like home from home. As disabled guests all have different needs I would advise you discuss your requirements with Patsy and Mike before booking. They know the local area well and were very willing to suggest suitable places to visit, nothing was too much trouble for them.

We have just returned home after spending 3 nights at Summerhill Country House a truly wonderful relaxing expierence made possible by the delightful owners Mike & Patsy, NOTHING is to much trouble, this was apparent as we were greeted with Tea & Coffee and Patsy\'s Home Made Baking. The place is spotless, comfort to the highest order, with excellent little touches like Homemade Chocolates and Homemade Biscuits in our room. We have already booked to return later this year. The only complaint we could find was that it should be 5 star rating not 4.

Relaxing Break
Summerhill Country House is just that, a lovely property with very welcoming hosts Patsy & Mike. We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in staying there again.
The rooms are very clean and well provided for and the breakfasts are first class.
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a relaxing break out of the towns and villages.
1.8 Miles from Hawkshead was an ideal 5 mins in car to a choice of 4 pubs in the village.

Only Place To Stay In Lake District
From the moment you are greeted at the door by Patsy and Mike you feel like you are home. Perfect hosts, house was comfortable, the rooms were beautifully decorated, beds very comfortable and a special home made chocolate made by Patsy a welcome touch. Their knowledge and recommendations of what to do and see where great. Breakfast was also amazing and catered for all. We had a great stay thanks Patsy and Mike

Situated in a spectacular position above Hawkshead village. Our hosts were very welcoming and made our stay so enjoyable.
The house is delightful, rooms comfortable (maybe our bathroom a tad small !)
Breakfast superb, setting up our day to explore this fabulous area of England.

Excellent team work from Mike and pasty who made us feel very welcome from the second we arrived. The room we stayed in was compact and the bathroom small but had everything you need.it was cleaned daily with a different homemade chocolate everyday 😋😋. Lots of advice about things to do in the area from both hosts. Summerhill was a bit of the beaton track but well worth the drive and very peaceful. Highly recommended.

Comfortable And Cosy
We recently stayed for 3 nights at the SummerHill Country House. The hosts Sandra and Mike are wonderful and extremely hospitable. We reached quite late in the evening but were very warmly welcomed. All arrangements for our stay had a very personal touch, starting from the scrumptious handmade chocolate in the room to the delicious breakfast with jams, sauces etc sourced locally! Sandra's invaluable tips helped us to plan our sightseeing itinerary and maximise our time. Our family would love to go back!

Pure Bliss
What a thrill it was to stay at the Summer Hill Country House in the Lakes District for three blissful nights.

Nowhere else we have stayed during our four-week holiday through the UK from Australia were we so warmly welcomed by the hosts. Upon arrival we were led into their lounge room where we were comfortably seated and treated to homemade cakes and tea and coffee and enjoyed a lovely introductory chat.

Mike and Patsy made us feel right at home from the very first minute and their ongoing hospitality and generosity were a sheer delight.

The setting is idyllic, the location so convenient to many of the jewels within the Lakes District, and the peace and tranquillity of their surroundings are simply divine. There is ample parking and you can enjoy scenic walks or drives in every direction from the front door.

Add to the mix our daily treat of Patsy’s delicious homemade chocolates and truffles, her superb breakfasts and the striking cleanliness of the rooms and facilities; you just never want to leave.

Mike is a fountain of local knowledge and he was very helpful in suggesting daily travelling itineraries. His humour-peppered conversation often had us in stitches.

We could not want for more. Imagine our surprise then, when arriving back from our second day’s sightseeing, we discover that Patsy had put all our dirty clothes through the wash.

At most B&B’s it’s great just to have a good bed, clean facilities and a decent breakfast. Occasionally, you not only get all that, but you get to be welcomed “home” as a part of the family. Patsy and Mike at Summer Hill Country House do just that.

The worst part of our stay was having to say “Good bye”.

My friend and I recently stayed at Summer Hill for two nights to attend a friends wedding close by.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, Patsy couldn't have been more accommodating..and the attention to detail is second to none. Including helping yourself to a little flask of fresh milk to keep in your room, choice of homemade cakes and hot drink on arrival, homemade chocolates & biscuits placed next to your bedside replenished each day..just additional touches that I've never witnessed before. Patsy and Mike seriously have thought of everything!!
In addition to this the amount of information and advice they offer is amazing..they're a fountain of knowledge!
I highly recommend and if I ever find myself back in the Lakes I would certainly stay here again without any hesitation!

Pleasant & Relaxing Stay
We stayed 2 nights in room 5 and had a very comfortable relaxing time. We found the hosts friendly and accommodating providing excellent advice for eating out and local walks. The room has a super king bed with LCD Tv, apple computer, free wifi and en suite facilities. We were unable to get wifi actually in the room but this in no way upset our stay. The ensuite is compact and bijou so we used the spar bathroom just down the hall which was very spacious. The home made chocolate truffles in the room each day were a very nice touch!!

Had a truly lovely time. Hotel was perfect for our needs, very homely, friendly hosts, warm, clean and fresh. Nice extra touches with tea and home made cakes on arrival and home made chocolate and biscuits in the bedroom. Portable laptop in bedroom very handy. Breakfast was mouth-wateringly good, I'm getting hungry with the memory whilst writing this! The Lake District was awesome. We are novice walkers so found a group online and joined in. Very interesting knowledge of the fells, but be warned, Windermere is not a lake, but a mere! I think my husband offended the guide by calling it a lake! Haha.
