Pitcairn House is a wonderful place to stay, comfortable and friendly, a real home from home. Hosts Heather and Steve provide a warm welcome and sound advice be it on the local eateries or places to walk or visit. Steven even provided us with a lift to the start point for our first walk. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast rendition... More

We have just spent three lovely days at this charming B & B. We originally stayed here in the summer of '76 for our honeymoon. Wow what changes there have been since then. Everything is spick and span and in Heather and Steve you have the perfect hosts. They make you feel at home and have some great suggestions, which... More

This wonderful B&B is the perfect place if you want a restful stay in the Lake District. It housed my family of 5 comfortably in 2 rooms. Just a short stroll away from the charming Keswick town centre and the beautiful Derwentwater lake, this guest house is run by owners Heather & Steve who worked tirelessly to make our short... More

Pitcairn House in Keswick is an excellent guest house and hosts, Steve and Heather, make every effort to make their guests feel right at home! The location is ideal - just a short walk to the centre of Keswick and the lake with fantastic views of the Fells. My room was comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need...

We have stayed in Keswick a lot in Hotels, cottages and B&B's and we found Pitcairn House to be one of the nicest. Very clean rooms with nice little extras in the bathroom if you find you've forgotten something. The breakfast was lovely, particularly the smoked salmon and scrambled egg.

Our first stay but we would go back and would recommend it to anyone. We were 3 adults in the family room and we had plenty of drawer and wardrobe space (usually a problem with 3). Heather and Steve were very friendly and helpful with advice for walks. Food was excellent with a choice for hearty eaters and also those... More

We've just returned from a lovely week in the Lakes staying at the Pitcairn House. Heather & Steve provided their normal high standards of accommodation, food and local knowledge. Being regular visitors we've stayed at the Pitcairn on many occasions, with various friends and family. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a place to stay in keswick.
