Superb guest house, friendly hosts. Clean, bright, ensuite room, homemade cupcakes with tea and coffee facilities, and overlooking the mountains. Steps away from Keswick town centre, with its dog friendly pubs and outdoor clothing stores. Breakfast, one of the best I've had at a guest house. Generous, freshly made cooked brekkie with veggie sausages, and great homemade bread. Stayed last... More

This guest house is in a great location. We have stayed here 3 times...each time in a different room. All rooms were comfortable, clean, tea and coffee making facilities with fresh cakes too! Amanda and Ross always make us welcome, giving a family atmosphere to the place. We stayed in Room 1 and had no problems with noise. Previously we... More

Great location for Keswick with the town-centre within easy walking distance. Pleasant rooms with some quirky features in the bathrooms. We were not a fan of the ground floor room as it was too noisy, even though guests were considerate. Rooms 4 & 5 gave superb views of Skiddaw. Delicious large breakfasts with caring hosts. Excellent base for walking or... More

We stayed at Dolly Waggon on 4th May 2015. We were greeted by Amanda & Scott on arrival and shown to our room. The views of the fells from our window were amazing. Cannot name one fault with the guest house. Very spacious, comfy room. Breakfast was lovely & very filling. Great value for money - look forward to visiting... More

Great location only a couple minutes walk from town centre, clean spacious room - and we got room 4 with an amazing view, fresh cakes in the room, welcoming hosts, delicious breakfast with a choice between full English (and all variations) and a daily special. Breakfast doesn't start until 8.15am so we missed it on the second morning as we... More

You'll not find better hosts and thoroughly descent people. Amanda and Ross were welcoming and happy to provide local knowledge of the lakes and hills surrounding the guest house as well as places to eat and drink. The demeanor of the guest house and owners is relaxed and professional, very much geared towards guests with an overall very a nice... More

Right from the moment you book Amanda and Ross make you feel welcome. We arrived on Sunday to an offer of a cup of tea along with a piece of yummy Christmas cake which after a hard days walking was very nice. What a start to a 1 night break! The room (no4) was fantastic with an exceptional view despite... More
