Solo travel is difficult enough & in a Country I don't know. B&B was so clean bright inviting & cost effective. Owners so hospitable & helpful with advice how 2 get around the district & beyond. Very genuine owners with a wonderful approach on how to run a business and treat their guests staying with them. Highly recommend this B&B... More

Stayed over a long weekend hiking with friends. Excellent, helpful and friendly service. Good room and facilities, good quality breakfast, the yoghurt and fruit particularly welcome, going some way to counter-balance the full English. Handy for town. Would definitely stay again.

We have recently returned from a 2 night break at Rivendell. As soon as I spoke to Linda to confirm my booking I knew I had made the right choice. Lovely owners, fantastic location close to the centre of Keswick and the park, we also had no trouble parking nearby at all. Facilities are great and spotlessly clean and the... More

Spent another long weekend in Keswick at the Rivendell. As always Linda and Pat were excellent hosts and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are delightful to stay in. Dogs are welcome and our own dog Buddy knows his way to the bedroom and loves the sausage treat he is given. You wont be disappointed staying here

Lovely place to stay, we spent three nights with our pet dog who was treated lovely and the owners always saved her a sausage at breakfast. The room was large and spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable bed. It is in a very good location with only a shortwalk into town and Fitz Park to exercise pets. Would recommend to... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a small single room with separate bathroom. Both spotless. Excellent breakfast with a good choice including fresh fruit. Hosts very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Would definitely stay again, and only a few minutes to town centre.

Linda and Pat are so friendly , helpful and attentive. Breakfast is an enjoyable experience thanks to the great food that is offered and such a broad choice all this enhanced by Pats friendly service. The room that we had was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and quiet. The Guest house is an easy walk to the town centre that has... More
