I've stayed at the Rivendell many times, with my dogs. Pat and Linda are the perfect hosts always friendly, happy and honestly make you feel at home. The rooms are large and spotless and feel very fresh. Of all the places we have stayed in Keswick, this is the one we return too, over and over again. The breakfasts are... More

Stayed here with 6 other mountain bikers while doing the coast to coast. Good storage for bikes in the outhouse which is pretty secure and easily fitted our bikes. Rooms were spacious and well cleaned, shower in our room was great. Its handy for the town centre too.

Stayed here for 2 nights last summer. This B & B is in a great location..only a short walk to the town centre. The room was spotless and the added bonus was that we were able to bring our dog! There is no off street parking and the street is pretty busy parking wise, but we always managed to find... More

We had a brilliant stay at this Guest House. Great facilities,very clean, well kept and very comfortable. The owners are very frendly and cannot do enough to make your holiday one to remember, they have a great local knowledge of the area and nothing is too much trouble for them.

Linda and Pat are gracious hosts and found us many adventures while staying in Keswick. Lovely rooms, lots to do in the area, but they made the stay even more enjoyable. So much to enjoy around town from nightlife to fen running to scenic drives, you will not be bored.

My boyfriend and I stayed here at Easter as we wanted to visit kewsick and climb skiddaw mountain! We also wanted to bring along our labrador! To which he was more than welcome! We cannot get over how friendly welcoming and cannot get over how dog friendly this place is!! Unlike in the south of England where we come from... More

We have stayed in many B&B's in Keswick but this is our favourite dog friendly one yet. Rooms are clean, well kept and comfortable. Hosts give a warm welcome and manage the balance between being attentive without intruding perfectly. You really feel at home from home. The location is ideal for walking into town and the breakfast is spot on.... More

One of the cleanest B&Bs I've ever stayed in. Welcoming hosts do their best to ensure your stay is spot on without being in your face. Comfy beds. Even the breakfast is clean - not swimming in grease! Massive choice of cereals to suit everyone. Absolutely spot on and will definitely visit again soon. Deserves to be higher up the... More

Honestly one of the nicest and most welcoming B&B's I have stayed in! Rooms are spacious and fresh! The full English breakfast is to die for! Amazing place to stay. The location is 4/5 mins walk from the town centre and there is ample free parking right on the doorstep!

Hosts Pat & Linda provide a traditional, very clean & well appointed Victorian Town House, which suits us and their unobtrusive management, contributes to a homely & relaxing place to unwind and 'chill'. A varied and hearty cooked breakfast really sets you up for the day ahead. We highly recommend 'Rivendell' to anyone looking to stay in Keswick. All the... More
