What wonderful service we had in all of our visits and James and Ruth, seem to be doing really well running the business, having not been... More

Spent a great weekend in Keswick staying at Cumbria House. This property has recently been taken over by James and Ruth, who were very welcoming and provided a high standard of service throughout our stay. We stayed in a room on the top floor and while the room was compact, this was more than compensated by a marvelous view across... More

Our arrival coincided with the arrival of new owners, James and Ruth on the same day. We were shown to a lovely spacious room with a wonderful view of various fells. We had the luxury of a designated parking space...........which is like gold dust when staying in Keswick. There was a varied choice for breakfast to cater for all needs,... More

Patrick and Mavis were perfect the host and hostess. The location is convenient, the house is comfortable and attractive and the breakfasts were delicious and more than ample. Keswick is a charming, quiet and walkable town and well worth the visit. Patrick will help plan walks around the lake district upon request, and also pack a lunch for a nominal... More

Cumbria House is in a great spot, just outside the town centre on a quiet street. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast is excellent (although only served until 8.45). We travelled with 2 other couples, and although our room was fine, I would say there is quite a difference between some of the rooms. One of the... More

We live in Kendal, but just took a weekend a bit further up North to ease the strains of life. The landlord/landlady were so polite, caring, helpful and kind. The beds were so comfortable that we googled the mattress!.....only to find out why they were so comfortable...They have spent a lot of money making sure the guests come first. The... More
