Very friendly and helpful with the booking and an equally warm and friendly welcome on arrival from both Sally and Keith. Very well appointed traditional Lakeland House, spotlessly clean and maintained to a very high standard. Our room and en-suite was great. Breakfast was really good; plenty of choice and good quality wholesome food, served in a very comfortable dining... More

A warm and friendly welcome with a different free cake each day. Really tasty full English breakfast that our hosts were very happy to cook at 7 am so we could get an early start to our coast to coast cycle ride. Good and secure bike storage. The accommodation was booked for us by a tour organiser, but I'll definitely... More

Thank you for the great feedback. One of the many great joys in running a B & B is the groups of walkers and cyclists that stay with us and being able to play a small part in their adventure. Our aim is to ensure the group is well fed and rested and ready for the next days challenges. We... More

It was a pleasure to spend a night at the Glencoe. Keith and Sally were fantastic and gracious hosts (not to mention excellent cooks of both breakfasts and cakes). Excellent bedroom, huge bathroom, warm atmosphere and unlimited sausages at the breakfast table ;) What more could a fella want!?

Have stayed in the Lake District many times and can honestly say this ranks with the very best. The accommodation was spot on and the breakfast excellent. Keith and Sally were very welcoming and helpful. I will book with them next time i'm up there. P.S. Loved the cake.

Came to Keswick on a short holiday and found the Glencoe to be perfect! It's exactly what was expected, and even better. Keith was amazing, and Sally, though we only met briefly, was charming. I'd return anytime, and encourage others to stay there to have the same great experience in the Lakes we did.

We had a great stay at Glencoe, Sally and Keith were very welcoming. The room and the rest of the house were tastefully done and clean and warm, the breakfast locally sourced and very tasty. We even got to share walking tales abroad with Keith. We would definitely stay again.

Home made banana and chocolate cake; beautiful period features including lovely wooden banisters and panelled doors; my single room had the perk of a bathroom (with bath) spacious and elegant complete with potted palm; what more could I ask Everything in good taste, Keith and Sally such genuinely nice people, doing everything with flair and love, not 'in the industry'...

Thank you for your very kind comments. When we wrote our business plan cake was certainly part of the plan, making money never was. Our view being that if the quality of service and customer care was the very best and our main priority then we would be profitable. That seems to be the case. The great satisfaction in this...
