In my past life I travelled extensively for business in 24 countries, I stayed in hundreds of hotels so I have had a lot of experience being a guest and knowing what to expect in form of accommodation,cleanliness and service . After returning to England from working and living in Dubai my wife Carey and I decided to invest in the Lake District . High Grassings Country House is a superb property located truly in the heart of the Lake District . We love what we do and by offering quality, cleanliness and good value service it’s great to see so many happy smiles from our guests. Carey and I look forward to welcoming you to High Grassings Country House. David & Carey Owners
