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...

I stayed at the glencoe guest house for two nights and could not fault it, I highly recommend it if you are visiting the area. Both sally and keith were wonderful, nothing was ever too much and they were always happy to help with a smile. I had an early morning departure and sally even made me a breakfast sandwich... More

I think it was clear from the get go that Glencoe was somewhere we would like. A friend and I had an overnight stay and would have quite happily stayed longer. The house is a lovely blend of old and new with lots of character! Filled with the homey scent of things baking that always seemed to fill the corridors!... More

Keith & Sally's B&B is excellent. Spotless room with 5* hygiene rating. Quiet road, welcome short-stayers, very friendly, great breakfast. Short walk to Keswick main centre. Lots of places to eat. Freshly made cake for stayers. Highly recommended.
