Reception Rooms


Our reception area is very much the heart of the guest house. This is where you receive our hearty Cumbrian welcome, offer you help with your luggage, check you in, show you around so you get a feel of the place before we take you personally to your room.

The Bar: is also in this area and is open during normal licensing hours and has a comfortable seating area should you fancy a chat while you have a drink.

Arriving late or just fancy a bite to eat at any time during your stay? Then do try one of our platters, served in the lounge, in your room or on the patio on warm days:

Ploughman's Platter: Locally sourced organic brie, Allerdale goats cheese, Cumberland farmhouse mature cheddar, Higginson's pork pie, hand made pickles and chunky bread.

Afternoon Teas: are always a very special treat at West Vale so go on, spoil yourself at least once while you are here. mmmm...just lovely.
