Really lovely place to stay first class place. Weather was good as well. Breakfast plenty to choose from and freshly made. Just outside Keswick easy to get to and great views. Will be back at some point in the future

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

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...

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
