My husband and I stayed at the Avondale Guest House for two nights and it was not enough time! There is so much to see in the Lake District and we were so comfortable in our room, that it was sad to leave. Stephen and Linda greeted us warmly and enthusiastically at the door. Our room was at the top... More

Warm welcome from Stephen and Linda the minute we entered the property. Our bags were carried to our room, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent Breakfast menu(so many options), all beautifully cooked and served. The room and en suite spotless, towels changed daily, impossile to find fault. Very pleased that we chose this Guest House.

We've just returned from a lovely 2 night stay. Linda & Stephen offer superb hospitality in a quiet central location. The rooms are spotless, comfortable & modern. The choice of breakfast is impressive & easily match 5* hotels for food quality. We would definitely choose to stay again

Just spent two nights here on a short break. Excellent friendly hosts, great breakfasts (with plenty of options) and clean, well kept and modern inside - all for a very fair price. If I stay in Keswick again, this will be my first choice.

We stayed here for one night on Sunday, 29th June, and can wholeheartedly recommmend this Guest House for anyone taking a short break in Keswick. It is centrally located and the attractions are all within easy walking distance.

Thanks Adrian to review us. Much appreciated. Linda thanks you for commenting on how clean she keeps the place and we both thank you for your comments about the breakfast. 5 star indeed! We did get a 100% score for our recent breakfast award right enough, so you could have a point there. We hope to see you again soon... More

Thanks Malcolm for reviewing our guest house. We don't get many guests from South Africa but those that do come always have a good time. Good to hear that you loved our breakfast selections so much. They are very good; even if we say so ourselves! All the best. More

I'm going to rave about the place with everyone else. It wasn't that it's proximity to town was just right, or that Keswick alone is beautiful. It was Linda and Stephen's hospitality, the pride and care they take with their place and making sure our stay in Keswick was just right. The breakfast are without equal and believe me we... More

We booked Avondale on a whim after spending hours looking at last minute places to stay for our week off. We were looking for somewhere about midway to Edinburgh from Manchester with no particular inclenation about exact places.
