We stayed for a 2 night weekend break in room 2 (triple/ large double + single room) to enjoy a family weekend in Keswick. We had never stayed at the Rowan Tree before, but shall definitely be returning and recommending this as a top quality BnB to friends and family! Amanda and Steve provide high quality customer care and make... More

This is a great place to stay if you have bikes as there's a secure area out the back to lock them up. Our room was very spacious and clean with lovely views of the hill tops. We slept like logs, so comfy! We stayed for two nights and felt totally at home. Breakfast was delicious both mornings with a... More

We stayed three nights in August 2014. Steve and Amanda are very friendly and gave us a great welcome. I have special dietary needs and they catered for me. Breakfasts were great and the dining room and bedroom were kept spotless. They both have very good local knowledge and are always quick to provide help and guidance if requested. The... More

Our 1st stop on our C2C.Great location, in a quiet street yet a few minutes stroll from the town centre. ( which offers a wonderful small independent local cinema 2 minutes walk away). Amanda & Steve offer exactly the right level of welcome and helpful friendliness. Rooms were very comfortable and clean with good showers. Good breakfast to send us... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. We had 2 rooms and both of them were great. Steve and Amanda made us feel very welcome and were excellent hosts. The breakfast was perfect. My daughter and I were going to do some hiking while here and Steve gave us great directions on how to begin and also a guidebook... More

Stayed for 2 nights here over the weekend. We were made to feel very welcome straight from the start. My boyfriend had a triathlon whilst we were staying there and they kindly stored his bike safely for him. The day of the triathlon we were up too early for breakfast but they were so thoughtful and cooked us some food... More

My friend and I were made very welcome by Steve and Amanda, who work hard at looking after their guests. A cup of tea on arrival would not have gone amiss - the only B&B where we were not offered one - but that was a minor point and they might have simply forgotten. The bikes were securely locked away... More

We stayed with Amanda and Steve for two nights in the middle of May, in the family room 2. They were perfect hosts. Beautiful house and garden, immaculately clean, fresh, amazing breakfast and very friendly and welcoming. They coped with our special diet brilliantly. In short, this is the best guest house we have ever stayed in! They were great... More

We stayed here for two nights (we wanted to stay for three but we booked only a few days before and it was already booked!). Great location, lovely rooms, very clean and modern. Steve and Amanda are very friendly and helpful. We chose the Rowan Tree as we had mountain bikes, and they provide a lockup area for the bikes.... More

Stayed one night 12 May to extend a short break in The Lakes and we were not disappointed. Rooms immaculate, crisp white bedding, tasteful decor and breakfast was as lovely as our host Steve. We had room 3 on 2nd floor at back which was very quiet. We also dined at The George which is short walk from GH and... More
