The owners, Heather and Steve, really nice couple, made our group of guys feel welcome. Dried our stuff out when we got drenched and generally made our stay like a home from home. Recommended and we will be back for more lakeland weather :)

A chance last minute phone call got us the only remaining room in Pitcairn House. Although the last, and what the owners called the 'smallest' room, it did not disappoint. A clean and cosy double with an en-suite was all that we needed for our brief stay in Keswick. The owners were kind enough to send a text on the... More

I don't often leave reviews on TripAdvisor but feel compelled to do so on this occasion. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival by the landlady and shown to our room which was absolutely immaculate. In fact, as it transpired, the whole place is spotless. A hearty breakfast was served with plenty of options for a full english,... More

A lovely B&B in Keswick where we were made to feel very welcome. We opted for the larger double room and it was well worth the extra cost, lots of space and very comfortable. The choice of breakfast each day was extensive with something to suit everyone and beautifully cooked. Heather & Steve provided a first class drying service which... More

Living in this area of the Lake District we do experience perhaps more than our fair share of wet weather and many of our guests have found our drying room to be invaluable. It is great for us to know that you started each day warm and dry and could enjoy a good walk without the worry of what to... More

A three night stay at Pitcairn House for my brother in law and I. Our first stay here and hopefully not our last. A lovely B&B, really relaxed and friendly. Heather and Steve were welcoming and made us feel at home. Big thanks from two fellow bikers. Cheers!

Just returned home after a bril weekend at Pitcairn House in Keswick. Heather & Steve were so very helpful friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are very good with lots of choice: fruit juice, fruit, cereal, toast and of course, the cooked breakfast was everything you could ask for. The rooms, cleanliness and the little extra... More

This was my second time at this establishment, and suffice to say, Heather and Steve didn't disappoint. Furnishings, cleanliness, hospitality, breakfast – everything was excellent, as was the case with my previous visit. One thing did improve though – restaurant recommendations! Keep up the good work!
