Well placed B&B, the hosts are very friendly, rooms are nice and clean. Perfect for a weekend stay. Breakfast is functional. There are lots and lots of B&B’s in this area so there is good competition which I assume keeps prices in check. I personally would have liked more options for breakfast like porridge, local sausages, pastries and a later... More

The couple who run the B&B are fantastic. I needed a slightly earlier breakfast as leaving at 8.30. Nothing was too much trouble. Full English was delicious. Room very clean, shower always hot, lovely shortbread with tea & coffee making facilities. Reason I chose this was because it was dog friendly. I will book again if I stay in Keswick.

Stayed at the Rivendell for the weekend with my mother and dog. We initially chose it as it is 'dog friendly'. We were not disappointed and could not have chosen better. The owners are very friendly without being 'in your face' as you often find with B&B's and you feel totally at home and comfortable. Location is great, abundant street... More

This B&B is in a great location. The couple who run it are lovely and very friendly. The breakfast is excellent. We stayed for a long weekend with our Labrador Jasper. Perfect dog friendly place and the pubs in Keswick are too. We give it a massive thumbs up. Helen & Paul Beckett + Jasper. :-)

I booked for 10 friends. We were taking part in a charity bike ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth and this was our first stop. We stayed in rooms 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7. The owners could not do enough for us. They greeted us and immediately took our bikes to a locked shed and showed us to our... More
