We had a wonderful Easter weekend at Ferndene Guest house and couldn't recommend it more. Richard and Christine were wonderful hosts and were so helpful in providing information about the surrounding area. Our room (Number 3) was beautiful with an amazing view of the mountains as well. The breakfast was out of this world and the house is in an... More

We stayed at The Ferndene Guest House for 2 nights in one of the annexe rooms. We could not fault it. The room was clean, well presented and quite spacious. The breakfast was delicious. Christine was very welcoming. We will definitely be back a few times this year and wouldn't stop anywhere else.

We stayed for a couple of nights in the annexe which was very clean and comfortable. The welcome was warm and breakfast was really excellent. Although we slept well the first night when we had no one next door we were rather aware of our neighbours on the second night as the walls are rather thin and you can hear... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights on a short break in the Lake district. We chose the Ferndale because of the positive reviews but also for the breakfast menu. We were not disappointed. The bedroom, like the rest of the house was spotless, and we could not have wished for a better breakfast than that prepared by Christine.... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights for our honeymoon and we chose this b&b based on excellent trip advisor reviews. We was not disappointed, we chose room 3, this was beautifully designed, comfortable bed, with fantastic views. We purposely travelled to keswick early on the Sunday so we could spend the day and scope out the area... More

We stayed a couple of nights in the top flor suite. Although there were a lot of stairs to get there you are well rewarded with the fantastic views. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast choice was extensive and very hearty! All this and only a few minutes walk from the town centre.

From my arrival Richard and Christine made me feel welcome. My room, 5, was very comfortable, with plenty of storage space, a cosy bed and a well appointed bathroom. The breakfast in the morning, helped set me up for a great few days walking. Richard provided welcome advice on local walking routes and took a personal interest in his guests'... More

What a treat! The view from our room was simply outstanding. The room itself was great and the owner of the Guest House very helpful. It almost felt like family. The free wi-fi was great too and we had no problems with it. Breakfast itself was top notch It's only a five minute walk to Market Square and Moot Hall... More

This was our 2nd stay here,4 nights this time, we loved it just as much as the last time and booked again for next year. Richard & Christine are brilliant hosts who keep an imaculate guest house with a personal feel that makes it like home away from home. Looking forwards to seeing you all (Poppy too) again next year.

The B&B owners were very kind and welcoming, and the locaiton is within walking distance of the centre of Keswick, so it was very convenient. However, we were in the annex building to the back of the main house, which doesn't seem to be a nice as the main house. Our shower had terrible pressure, even though it was a... More
