Stayed for two nights with our grandson and couldn't have been made more welcome. Our room was clean, comfortable, well decorated and the en-suite was spotless and stocked with complimentary shower gel. Breakfast was the best we have ever had in Keswick and we've been going there some tweny-five years or more ! Try the cake on an evening, the... More

Stayed for 1 night. Great B&B if you're walking and just want a base. other guests seemed to be enjoying themselves and bantering with the owners. Good central location, if you arrive by car you might have to park a street to two away. Slightly scruffy and old fashioned décor, but clean. Thought it was a bit overpriced for what... More

Three nights in the Glencoe were thoroughly enjoyable. We were made most welcome despite being a group of male walkers! The bedrooms were comfy and big enough for two men to share without being too close! Breakfast was excellent if a little slow on one morning. The location was close enough to the town centre but still with street parking... More

We stayed here for one night last weekend. It was the only room I could get in Keswick that evening and it did not disappoint. We had a room on the top floor looking across to skiddaw. The place was spotlessly clean and we were made to feel very welcome. I only had one little niggle.... No yogurts for breakfasts....... More

This is an excellent B&B. We are coming up to our fourth stay and all have been just want we wanted. Teresa and Karl are walkers and cyclists, so can provide excellent advice and information. They are very relaxed about timings and provide a lovely, hearty breakfast (we are vegetarian and are fully catered for).

We stayed at the Glencoe for two nights while walking the Cumberland Way. It has everything you need in a b&b. The rooms are modern, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Breakfast is good, and hot food is cooked freshly to order.The owners are very friendly, and are interested in what you are doing without being intrusive. They also have lots... More

Had a two night stay over the weekend and I'd definitely go back. A couple of minutes walk into the town to meet friends was perfect. The owners are a happy and enthusiastic couple who didn't mind us arriving early and seemed to just go with the flow. The only thing I'm not keen on is the fact that you... More

Stayed here for one night while on a walking holiday with friends. Glencoe is just a short walk from Keswick centre. We were made to feel very welcome, the rooms were very comfortable, and a good breakfast served in the morning. Many thanks to Teresa for all the helpful information about evening meals, walks and buses.

Great location for the town centre and walks. Good, clean accommodation. Good breakfast and very friendly owners who are knowledgable on the area. A really good idea they have, is people leaving their planned route for the day.
