We loved our stay at Avondale. Stephen and Linda were brilliant hosts, so friendly and helpful, we felt right at home! They helped us with walking maps and dining tips- nothing is too much trouble. Stephens cooked breakfasts are the best. Try his home made porridge and the full English breakfast will keep you going all day! The location is... More

We stayed here for one night on Friday ( one of the few places to accept a one night booking) and found it a great place to stay. We were greeted warmly and shown to our bedroom at the top of the house. Although our room was small it was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed. The bed was... More

Thanks to you both for your outstanding review. So glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. Looks like we might have convinced Richard that mushrooms can taste good! Hope you enjoyed your trip to L'enclume. Was the food as good as ours? :-) Next time you visit Keswick, we'd love to have you back and... More

Stayed while on a walking trip through the lakes with my partner. The place was immaculate. Bedrooms very modern and shower was great! Very comfy bed too. Breakfast was superb.....a choice of cereal and fruits followed by a choice of cooked breakfast. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Keswick.

I have stayed at Avondale on several occasions and each one has been better the last. The dining room has had a lovely makeover, the breakfast is still superb, and the lovely Linda is still the most welcoming hostess I have ever met. A fantastic night sleep in luxurious sheets.

That's just about the whole guest house that's been made over. Will... More

If you want a B&B in Keswick in Keswick, you cannot do better than stay at Avondale, run by Linda and Stephen. The breakfast is outstanding, both in style and content: whisky-soaked porridge, a lavish choice of fruits, nuts and seeds and any combination of the full English or Scottish. The bedrooms are immaculate, a warm and cosy retreat after... More

This is a gem of a guest house located round the corner from the main streets in Keswick, handy for the pubs, shops, market and of course the lake.

This was my first trip to Lake District & was relatively circumspect about the timing as well (Christmas). Linda & Stephen have done a great job with the place & have made the most of the resources. Great food & a well kept premise makes this B&B more than efficient. Needless to say, Keswick is a beautiful place & worth... More
