My wife and I have just returned after 3 nights at the Jenkins Hill Cottage near Keswick. this was chosen because of an advert in the Crossed Grain magazine, a periodical for Coeliacs. Nothing to worry here, our hosts knew how to cater for a gluten free diet. The home-cooked food was delicious! Medium sized bedrooms had all facilities including... More

We returned to Jenkin Hill Cottage again this year after a wonderful stay in 2012, this time taking David's sister and partner as well. The rooms were clean and comfortable, Kelvyn shared more of his local knowledge with us which led us to take a pleasant trip around the slate mine and return to the La'al Ratty in Ravenglass, and...

We stayed at Jenkin Hill Cottage over Easter and had a really good stay. The room was very comfortable and we had a brilliant night's sleep. Kelvyn is the source of all knowledge and gave us hints and tips when we told him what our plans were which made our days fantastic and made sure we got the most from... More

I stayed at Jenkin Hill Cottage with my girlfriend in April 2012 and had a great time- we will definitely be going back. The rooms as lovely and hospitality spot on.

Myself and my husband stayed at Jenkin hill for 2 nights (will definitely be going back). Great location only a few miles to Keswick. Marvellous hosts Kelvyn and Christine. Christine's cooking is lovely and such piece of mind as I am a coeliac. ( sticky toffee pudding is a must I had 2 servings lol). Great company and good conversation... More

Last September my wife and I stayed in this B&B for 5 nights and had a marvellous time. The room was lovely and the bed so very comfortable that we slept like babies. We took the evening dinners there on two nights and found them to be of better quality and value than the meals at a local hotel restaurant.... More
