Very lovely cottage, excellent location, descent size rooms & VERY WELL equipped kitchen. Best choice for group of 11-12 people. Best thing about this place is there are around 7 bathrooms, big dinning room, 2 reception room with games and good collection of DVD's and books. Though you might feel place bit cramped but it hardly matters, as you are... More

We had visitors from Australia and The Anchorage was ideal for our group, we were self catering and the place was well stocked with cutlery and kitchen equipment. The location to the town centre couldn't have been better, would certainly book again, thank you

Having looked online at places to stay in Keswick, we settled on this lovely little place. Along with the friendly and helpful owner, we found the place to be very welcoming. The rooms we had were very clean and offered all you'd want for a couple of nights away including a library of books and DVD's to watch. With Keswick... More

I stayed here with a group of friends over the Christmas period and the Anchorage exceeded our expectations - we had such a wonderful time! We hired out the entire building and were self catered and had an excellent Christmas. The rooms were all very clean and a good size, plus it was nice that we all had our own... More

My friends and I (a group of ten of us) stayed here for a long weekend in February to celebrate my recent remission from Lymphoma, meaning that we had the run of the whole house. The Anchorage was exactly what we wanted, all the rooms were lovely and had plenty of room. There was a good range of room type... More

We had the whole guest house to ouselves, as there was a group of 10. It was fantastic. A short walk to the town. Plenty of places to see, eat and drink at. The rooms were comfortable and clean. A great place to stay.

Just back from three days in Keswick staying at the Anchorage. I had the ensuite single room which was perfect while my friend had one of the doubles which he thought was brilliant. Linda couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was superb, we had the traditional full english breakfast but there are a range of other choices. Linda also offers... More

Just got back from a 5 night stay at the anchorage and had a wonderful break! I stayed in a single room...although a tad small it was brilliant! Plenty of storage, very clean and with en-suite shower room and toilet! The location was fantastic...a two minute walk to the shops and 5 mins to the lake. The service was also... More

A lovely guest house in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants, etc, yet still nice & quiet. The room was bright & and airy. It had everything we needed & was comfortable. Breakfast was very nice & best of all, was our very friendly host Linda. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay! Steve & Tina.
