Stayed at the Pitcairn House for three nights in August- really enjoyed it! The couple were really friendly and couldn't have been more helpful! Gave great advice on where to eat and where to walk. Thank you Pitcairn House!

Stayed at Pitcairn House for 2 nights over the August bank holiday weekend and enjoyed it very much. The location is terrific, just minutes from the town centre, and our room had a great view towards Skiddaw. Good breakfast, especially the local Cumberland sausages, and a warm welcome from the hosts Heather an Steve. Looking forwards to a return visit.

As regular visitors to the Lake District we usually stay out of town, but as we came on mass we thought it would be more convenient to be in walking distance of the amenities lovely Keswick has to offer. Bit of a lucky dip with the huge choice of B&Bs but we certainly would not stay anywhere else now that... More

We stayed here two years ago and this time was just as good. Heather and Steve (and the cats!) are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is lovely. The feature purple room was very clean and comfortable and the location is ideal for Keswick town centre. No complaints whatsoever! Will definitely go back!

Our bedroom and bathroom along with all of the guest house was clean and well decorated. We slept well and the views from our room were lovely to wake up to... More

Imagine a home from home... ( a spotlessly clean and tidy home) with no cleaning, no dishes, somebody to ease you into a beautiful Lake District day with a breakfast cooked to perfection, a very comfortable bed, somebody to cater for your every B & B need.... Pitcairn House has it all. I have just spent 4 wonderful nights with... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, visiting the Keswick Convention. Ideal location - easy walk to both the town centre and Convention. Breakfasts excellent - plenty to sustain for the day. Our room had a lovely view towards Skiddaw. Room was slightly small, on account of the ensuite built as part of the original room. Ensuite was of excellent standard.... More
