We've just had a great 3 days in Keswick. Harvington House is the perfect base for exploring this wonderful area. Graham and Gina were fantastic hosts, providing a delicious breakfast each morning as well as good advice on walks and activities. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you very much for your kind review - reviews help us enormously. It was lovely to meet you and hope your journey back didn't take too long. Hopefully the weather will be better on your next visit so you can get to the top of Skiddaw! More

Been to Harvington House a few times now. Graham and Gina are the perfect hosts, full of useful info about Keswick (a particularly useful hint about buying pies for lunch this last time - yum), and serving the most excellent breakfasts. I don't write many Trip Advisor reviews, but these guys deserve it. Go to this B&B!

A fantastic four day weekend spent in Keswick. The town is small enough to be quiet and have plenty of time to yourself, but large enough that it was still tough to choose where to eat. The lake and the walk around it are absolutely beautiful. It is also a pretty short bus-ride away from at least four other lakes.... More

Somehow haven't done a review before but have stayed here four or five times in the last couple of years. Graham and Gina are warm, engaging and perfect hosts, full of good humour and always interested and interesting! We often linger way too long after our fabulous breakfast enjoying conversation about the Lakes or further afield- we even got some... More

Hannah and I stayed for three nights in March '15 and couldn't have been happier with our experience of Harvington House! Both Graham and Gina are wonderful, helpful and interesting people, who always have advice to offer or tea to proffer! The room was lovely and comfortable with a great view Skiddaw: perfect inspiration for early mornings. Add to that... More

I can't think of a better place to stay in the Lakes. Great location, marvellous hospitality and superb breakfasts. The view of Skiddaw from the top room was amazing with wonderful light effects according to the time of day. Hope to go back before too long.

Carolyn and I had a fantastic stay for 2 nights with Graham and Gina back in Oct 14. Graham was a wealth of local knowledge and spent some time with us going over our trek of Scafel Pike. We highly recommend a stay at Harvington House in Keswick, a beautiful town in a beautiful part of the Uk. Thank you... More

Just left Keswick after a wonderfully relaxing few days - it was my fiancé's first trip to the Lakes and so we were eager to get plenty done!

This was our first stay at Harvington. It is very centrally situated within easy reach of the town. The accommodation was really comfortable with everything thought through to ensure everything you needed was to hand. Sounds daft but the kettle and hairdryer were fast and efficient ! However what we most enjoyed was the genuine friendliness of our hosts, Graham... More
