Wow! This b&b is amazing, the views from the rooms of skiddaw are unbelievable. We had the room with the roll top bath which was a luxury after a day walking the fells. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is superb. This place is definitely worth a stay. Well done Eleanor.

We stayed here two nights at the end of a week spent in and around Keswick and I wish we'd just spent the whole week at Hillside! The welcome, the views, the room, bathroom and breakfast were all fantastic, especially for the price. We stayed in the room with a bath - the decor of the room itself was not... More

What a beautiful B&B Hillside is! Nothing was left out, we were sad we had only booked the one night though. Eleanor was extremely welcoming and even kept in touch via email prior to our stay to confirm dietary requirements, advise driving directions etc. we stayed during a very rainy week, so it was lovely to have tea and cakes...

We stayed for four nights as we were visiting for a wedding in St Johns in Keswick on the Saturday and we thought we would like to have a short break too whilst we were there. It was everything we could have wished. Eleanor is a lovely host, not at all intrusive but gave great advice regarding the area and... More

We stayed two nights at Hillside. We were made most welcome with coffee and cakes. The room was fabulous. Ensuite bathroom and a shower room. Comfy bed, spotless,endless hotwater. Great. The breakfast, well, nothing was omitted. It was delicious. The garden is beautiful and the views are magnificent. The owners are friendly, chatty and relaxed. Hillside is dog friendly but... More

Eleanor and Phil made sure our stay at Hillside was perfect from the moment we arrived. The room we stayed in (Latrig)had a tv, huge bed and lots of storage space for our clothes. The en suite was equipped with a powerful shower which was lovely after a long day of walking! Also, the view of the fells, Latrig and... More

Been going to the Lake District for 10 years now on breaks and holidays and found Hillside to be the best B&B we have stayed in up to now. I have paid 50% more than the hillside rates for rooms that were not up to the standard and cleanliness of Hillside B&b. A Proper Cumbrian breakfast sets you up for... More
