Stayed for 3 nights while visiting the Keswick Convention. From here you can walk into town and takes about 15minutes, good pub around corner for food. Welcome was warm and friendly, with breakfast freshly prepared and a good selection. Not sure about having to order your breakfast the night before as often when you get up your decision can change.... More

we could not fault this B&B...fantastic location ,excellent hosts....and as a bonus it has a small outdoor heated pool which we were able to use. The bedroom was spacious and very clean as was the en suite bathroom. The breakfast was excellent, the B&B is on the edge of keswick but only a ten minute walk through the park along... More

We spent 2 nights here and it was lovely. The accommodation was nice, one double and one single for our 8 yr old. Breakfast every morning was to die for! One of the best English breakfasts we've had. The owners are lovely, friendly people and I owould definitely recommend staying here. We had the family room that had the balcony... More

Having stayed in many different types of accommodation in Keswick over the last 10 years, including cottages, B & B's, campsites, this has been my favourite B & B for over 4 years now, mainly as it has an outdoor pool and the most spectacular views of Skiddaw. Yet the pool and views would not be enough to keep me... More

We've visited this B&B a couple of times now and are already looking forward to getting back! Always a warm welcome with a cup of tea and home-made biscuits and the rooms are very comfortable as are the beds which is particularly important to me. The award-winning breakfast is truly delicious and you can enjoy wonderful views of Skiddaw whilst... More

This was our 8th stay in order to go to the beer festival and as usual Diane and Andrew were lovely and welcoming. Breakfast was up to it's usual very high standard. The house itself is very clean and comfortable with fantastic views. Located outside the main town which is a plus however within easy walking distance, even after a... More

This little guest house is simply unbelievably cozy and comfortable. I booked single room (number 4) via booking.com and really did not expect to find this newly refurbished lovely little place with a beautiful view, heated swimming pool and lots of charm. The lounge is very welcoming and the hosts Andrew and Diane are warm, pleasant and welcoming couple. The... More

Our second stay at Skiddaw Grove and definitely not our last! Our hosts were perfect and absolutely nothing was a problem for them. Our room was spotlessly clean, as were the bed sheets and towels. We ordered the full English for breakfast which was enjoyed by all and set us all up for the day ahead. Diane also made us... More

Our walking party of 6 stayed here last week for 4 nights - we all had a super stay with Andrew and Diane - lovely hosts. Nothing was too much trouble - they are friendly, pleasant and helpful. They have lots of local knowledge and will happily give you info. We booked tickets for the Theatre at the Lake and... More

We rented an apartment that comfortably slept a couple and three children, and a separate twin room. It was warm, tastefully decorated and really thoughtfully equipped throughout. As a base for exploring the northern Lakes, both walking and eating out, you couldn't beat this. Our hosts are friendly and efficient, parking is included, and it's an easy stroll into town.... More
