We stayed here in a family room on Sun 2 / Mon 3 Aug. The B & B is excellent and Linda and Pat are very good indeed. There is a large choice for breakfast and you are spoiled for choice. Also there is a large selection of tea / coffee in your room. The family room was great and... More

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

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

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.
