Once again we enjoyed a fabulous New Year in Keswick staying in Pitcairn House. Room was lovely, breakfast was just right (even though a hangover blighted the final morning!), and Heather and Steve were welcoming (as ever), friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The only place to spent New Year - that's why we'll be back in 2016! Sue... More

Unfortunately the weather was not been too good for the latter part of last year but at least it was clear and dry on News Years Eve. Sounds like you were partying hard on the 31st and enjoying the happy, friendly atmosphere around town as well as joining everyone for the celebrations at midnight in the market square. It was...

Bed was very comfy, and place was lovely and clean. The owners very kind and welcoming and provided a nice breakfast. The location was easy to find and walking distance to shops. We were able to have close parking and wifi was available. Would recommend staying here.

Our second visit to Pitcairn House. This time we had a 3 night stay over New Year and once again found everything was ideal for us. Heather & Steve are the perfect hosts and we hope to return later in the year.

In what is a very competitive area for accommodation it is good to see that we are maintaining the necessary standards expected by our guests. There are many positive factors that make Pitcairn house a popular choice for visitors. Our proximity to town, Derwentwater, The Theatre by the Lake, easily accessible walks plus good restaurants, bistro's and bars nearby all... More

A group of us stayed at Pitcairn house. The hosts were funny, helpful and accommodating. Every room (even the shared toilet) has a fantastic view over the surrounding countryside. I was in the cheapest room up in the loft and it was really cosy, with everything I could want and a shared toilet and separate bathroom next door. The highlight... More

We try to ensure that everyone who visits our house feels at home throughout their stay and we thoroughly enjoy all the light hearted interaction with our guests. Our location is ideal as we are literally a stones throw from some of the most popular Wainwright walks with many of famous crags visible form our bedroom windows. Keswick town centre... More

This was the cleanest b&b that we have ever been to and the owners made us feel very welcome. They couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was delicious and homemade cakes were available during the day. We will definitely be returning again.

Thanks to Heather and Steve for being very welcoming, helpful and friendly.

This was the first time we had stayed at Pitcairn House and we were not disappointed! The location was great for access to the town and we managed to get a parking space fairly easily on the street outside but I would think this will not always be the case with the volume of traffic.

The bad weather was a significant event throughout the latter part of 2015 with extremely heavy rain causing major flooding at the beginning of December. Unfortunately there was very little respite from the rain which was rather persistent for the remainder of the month and while you were here. Despite this deluge it was great to see you enjoyed the... More
