Upon arrival at The Lookout we were both in awe of the view from our room, breathtaking is the only word that seems appropriate. The owners of The Lookout are both lovely, very helpful and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable. They are full of information about the area and things to do, and were... More

Stayed for the third occasion (but hopefully not our last!). Liz and Dave are wonderful hosts. Despite this being our third visit I am still amazed at the views from the balcony across their beautiful garden . The house is gorgeous and Dave cooks a mean breakfast! Worth every penny.

We were welcomed by Dave and Liz who were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Their guest house is beautifully decorated with breathtaking views from the balcony,dining room and their exquisite garden. The garden has lots of different places to sit. The rooms were modern and comfortable with a very big bathroom. The decor throughout the house... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a room overlooking rear garden. The room, bathroom and views were all nice, and the balcony was a nice touch. You could see the gardens were taken care off and were nice to walk round or sit in. The breakfast was also nice, with good quality produce. The location was a 20 minute walk... More

Stayed for 3 nights (10-13 June) in Room 1 (the room with the bath). The bathroom is immaculate and huge with complementary bath salts, perfect after a days hiking. The room is nice and big, bed is comfy and the view from the room is spectacular. This is a B&B room you actually want to spend time in, drinking wine... More

This is our third stay and we have booked another 4 days already. Liz and Dave run a truly lovely B&B. They are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area and keen walkers themselves. The breakfasts are beautifully cooked to order. Rooms 1 and 3 have magnificent views over the fells from their separate balconies, and room 2 has... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at The Lookout. We were disappointed when we were unable to get one of the rooms with a view. However, there is still a porch to sit and watch the sunset as well as many seats in a beautiful garden. The owners were very nice and helpful. They made good suggestions and helped us... More

Have stayed in quite a few really good B & B's but The Lookout is far and away the best. My husband and I stayed in Room 3 which has a private balcony. It is a lovely spot to while away a couple of hours with a glass of wine while enjoying the absolutely fabulous views. The breakfast is lovely... More

A few days in the Lakes makes a great escape for a UK break. Keswick is my favourite place for walking and some relaxation (nice pubs, food, excellent Oxfam bookshop!). We usually camp but it was late in the season and we thought we'd find a nice B&B for a change. there's a whole host of places to stay in... More

This is the first ever b&b I've stopped in, so don't have a lot to compare it to (apart from hotels etc.). However, it was absolutely brilliant! We made a last minute decision to head to Keswick, one of our favourite places. We usually camp, but the overnight temperatures were still a little low. Dave and Liz are the perfect... More
