If all B&B's had hosts like this it would be a perfect world. We loved the room, (Scafell) and parking was no problem. With such a fantastic area to explore it made for a perfect Lake District stay. I'm grateful to other TA people who recommended it before our visit.

Such a warm and friendly place to spend a holiday. Very friendly hosts, Phil and Joy, who are only too pleased to help make your stay memorable with good food, superb accommodation and very helpful local knowledge. If a better b&b is available then it must be on another planet !!!!! we have been here many times and will return... More

Last week we stayed 2 nights in the Catbells room at Claremont House run by the lovely Joy and Phil. Our room was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and had a lovely outlook over the garden and out to the distant hills. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Phil and Joy were more than helpful when it came... More

Booked the Blencathra room at short notice for £82 for a single Bank Holiday night. This is the larger suite with super king bed - in line with many other places this was made up of two joined beds but proved to be very comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean with no signs of wear and tear. The room wasn't... More

Just back from a two night walking break in Keswick, Had a very warm welcome, Phil brought us coffee and biscuits as soon as we arrived, he was also very helpful about local walks and advised us on which walks to do depending on the weather. Our room was clean and comfortable with fabulous views of Keswick and the fells... More

It's very difficult adding anything to what has already been said before by other guests but...this place is about as perfect a place as we've ever stayed. The room we stayed in (Fairfield) was immaculate, modern, quality fittings and whilst it may not have the views of some of the other rooms, it looks out onto the garden, we'd rather... More

It is the people who make travel worthwhile, and Phil and Joy are welcoming and helpful hosts. Our room was super clean, we had a nice view of Keswick from the window, the bed was comfy and the cooked to order breakfast was superb. We only stayed 2 nights, but enjoyed exploring the area and hope to come back someday--and... More

Having read some fabulous reviews prior to our visit, we were greatly impressed that they more than adequately described this excellent B&B. A warm welcome and attention to detail were the essence of our superb stay; to the point where we were almost reluctant to tell anyone else for fear that there won't be room for a return visit. Many... More

Thank you very much. We do find quite a few of our guests commenting on the fact that if they leave such wonderful reviews, as you did, Claremont House will be full the next time they try to book. So we thank you for your wonderful review. If you do want to return, hopefully we will be able to accommodate... More

Stayed at Claremont for 3 nights and it was fabulous. We received a great welcome from Joy and were always cheered by the presence of Phil in the mornings at breakfast. He directed us to the most amazing walk and lakes around; his navigational material was of great help. The hosts were also very sweet at accommodating 1-2 of our... More
