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

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
