Just stayed last weekend at this Guest House - a truly lovely place to stay. Fantastic location. John and Heather were a really nice couple and attention to every little detail imaginable was given. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was nice and filling which is what you need for a good walk. Will be back again as soon as we... More

This was our first visit but certainly wont be our last. Parking was a major reason for booking this B&B but the very warm welcome we received from John and Heather, made us feel very much at home. The bedroom and en-suite were spotless. WiFi was available and the breakfast just perfect. A choice of cereals,including their home made muesli... More

Just had our fourth stay at the Abacourt for 4 nights this time. Clean, comfortable and friendly with a really good breakfast to set you up for the day. Excellent location within 2 minutes of the town centre and no problem with designated parking at the rear of the Abacourt. Will certainly be staying again!

This B&B is located on a block full of B&Bs. I highly recommend this place. Owners are extremely nice and helpful with walks and restaurants. We ate at Bella Casa all 3 nights! John helped us with our luggage up a few flight of stairs. He is strong! Breakfast is delightful with delicious fruit salad, homemade muesli, and the wonderful... More

We stayed here 1 night in April 2014. Great location!!! Town center, restaurants, attractions all within walking distance. Our double en-suite room was on the 1st floor, which was great. Clean room, small comfortable double-sized bed, decor was basic but functional. Car parking was tight along the crowded street in front of the B&B. Cumbrian breakfast was great, love the... More

This is the third time we have stayed here. Really conveniently situated within easy distance to the town and amenities. Spotless accommodation and great tasty breakfast. John and Heather are perfect hosts and make you feel very welcome. Would highly recommend!

Lovely B & B. Really well situated a few minutes walk from the town centre but up a quiet street away from pubs etc. Nicely decorated but with homely touches too. A welcome change from generic chain hotels. Excellent breakfast with special dietary requirmeents catered to with no fuss. Friendly, welcoming and informative hosts.

Picked the Abacourt mostly by chance, to be honest, as it is Easter weekend, it was difficult to find available accommodation. The location was what grabbed us; literally down a side street halfway off Main Street, couldn't ask for a better location. The hotel was immaculate and the owners were lovely. We arrived around lunchtime, parked in the off road... More

We chose this B&B after reading previous reviews and could not fault it. John and Heather, the owners, were so friendly and helpful, always ready with advice for which walks to take, hills to climb etc. The room was spotless, breakfast delicious and, overall, we could not have wished for a better place to lay our heads after a good...

Third time visit means the first 2 visits we're fantastic. And there will be a fourth. Food is good and the people we're great too. Strongly recommend it. I only use another B and B when The Abacourt isn't available.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You are assured a warm, friendly and informal welcome to our, Visit England; 4 Star Silver Award Winning Traditional Lakeland Victorian Guest House. All five of our rooms are double bedded with full en-suite facilities. Free Wi-Fi available for guests. Abacourt is situated very close to the centre of Keswick, just a less than a 2 minute walk from its many shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and numerous other attractions and amenities, yet we are located in a cul-de-sac which makes for quiet evenings. Keswick is a great place to explore from on foot; a walk can start from our doorstep. We have guide books and maps you can borrow, whether your wish a gentle low level walk or something more demanding.Car parking in Keswick is at a great premium. To the rear of the house there is private off street parking. May we take this opportunity to point out that Abacourt is strictly NON-SMOKING. ... more   less
