Warm welcome with fairy cake and fresh milk in fridge outside bedroom door. Everywhere spotlessly clean. Excellent and varied breakfast with strawberries and blueberries yoghurt etc. followed by many variables for a cooked breakfast including local bacon and sausages. Good location near the Convention and town and yet our room at the back was very quiet. Would have no hesitation... More

We stopped for a few days while at the Keswick convention. Heather and Steve were lovely, very welcoming and accommodating. The breakfast was good and the location was perfect. Make sure you book in advance so you can get an en-suite room. We would happily stop again.

We stayed at Pitcairn House for one night after our first day cycling the C2C route and we were given a great welcome by Heather and Steve! There was a secure place for us to store our bikes and our room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Heather and Steve were very friendly and chatty and gave us great advice... More

My fiancé had arranged a weekend away for me at this bed and breakfast. Heather and Steve made us feel very welcome on arrival and gave us helpful advice for nice restaurants in the area and booked us a table at The Sizzling Stone for my birthday. The room was very clean and cozy and the breakfasts were delicious. We... More

There is nothing like a surprise especially on your birthday and so glad you enjoyed yours with us at Pitcairn House. We usually bring candles on you toast at breakfast but as your partner had gone to such efforts for your weekend we thought a cake more apt., even if only a small one. Its is always rewarding for us... More

Stayed here for three nights. The guest house was neat, clean and cosy. It's conveniently located as well -- just a short walk from the main bus stop and market square (restaurants are nearby too!). Another plus point is that it is situated away from the main road, so it provides peace and quiet for a good night's rest after... More

We stayed at Pitcairn House for three nights. It's in a really convenient location, just a short walk from the market square in Keswick. The rooms and public areas are kept in tip top condition and Heather and Steve provide a genuine welcome for their guests, along with a great Breakfast.

Thank you for the lovely comments and so pleased you had a relaxed and pleasant 3 day break with us. We are very fortunate with our location being close to town, tourist attractions and many of the local walks that we often find our guests will park their car on arrival and will not need use it again until going...
