They cannot do enough for you. Very flexible in terms of arrival times and choice of breakfasts. Fresh milk and filter coffee for the rooms. It really couldn't... More

Amazing hospitality from Ruth & James at this very welcoming guest house. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They even kept us up to date with news about the rising waters of the River Greta during the flood. We stayed in a spacious room on the top floor with wonderful views across to Causey Pike which could be seen... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed the views from room 8 - we are thinking of offering a breakfast in bed option to take more advantage of the views from our rooms! We were very fortunate that the floods in 2015 did not directly affect us at Cumbria House. Keswick has shown great spirit following the... More

Recently spent a weekend with a ground of friends at the Cumbria House. The location is ideal for Keswick Centre with good parking facilities. Rooms are clean and airy and the breakfast was excellent. Ruth & James are great hosts, we had a chilled and relaxing time. Highly recommended. We plan to return next year.

We briefly met James on our departure, he was too busy cooking his wonderful breakfasts for us guests, and what a breakfast... highly recommended. Ruth is a fantastic host,... More

Ruth & James are lovely people, we spent 4 nights with them. The quality of food for breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice and all very fresh and local. will certainly go back! The bed in room 1 (Single) was very comfortable, although the room a tad small, but Hey!!! how long do you spend in the bedroom!!!

Extremely warm welcome on our arrival from Ruth and James. We felt that one of the main features of this B & B was the most imaginative breakfast menu we have ever experienced. Caring and conscientious hosts who deserve to succeed in their new venture. Would definitely return to Cumbria House when visiting Keswick.
