On our tour of Northumbria and the lakes, this was our final stop before heading home; we wished we had booked more nights here, such a wonderful place. Janet is a great host and very helpful. The rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable, with a great breakfast to finish off with.

Greenbank is one of the few B&B guest houses that provides a Room Only rate. We took this option and had simple cheap breakfast elsewhere. The room was large, well appointed and very comfortable. The guest house is in a gorgeous location outside town overlooking Borrowdale valley. We loved it. The lounge areas are spacious and our host Janet had... More

This is a very good B&B in a superb and beautiful location, perfectly positioned for walks around the Keswick and Derwent water areas. We stayed in room 2 which has great views of Derwent Water and the surrounding hills. The room was well appointed and comfortable. We received a warm and friendly welcome and the service throughout our stay was... More

This is a good B&B. It didn't stick out as exceptional but it had very nice views and polite staff. Our room (number 8) had a bathroom with shower even though when we booked the room we were told it wasn't ensuite. Our Tariff was 110 pounds for a double bed for both fri and sat night. We booked this... More

We chose this because of the location to Keswick. It's about 7 minutes away by car. Beautiful location, views wonderful, great walks on the doorstep. We received a warm and accommodating welcome. The room was spotless, bed comfortable, breakfast tasty and plentiful. Free internet. No mobile signal but that suited us great. There is a payphone though. Our room was... More

This is a good B&B in a lovely location. Well located for walking around the Lake District, especially Derwent Water. This B&B offers a cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive hotels in the area. The service is good, friendly and breakfast is tasty. My only complain is that our shower was a bit poor - not very good... More

I spent one evening here, on a business trip. The room was rather small, and modest, but everything was clean, and worked perfectly. The decor throughout the guest house was cosy and warm. The breakfast was one of the best I have had; lovingly prepared by the slightly eccentric but extremely friendly, and very welcoming landlady. I would definitely stay... More

We enjoyed a relaxing six nights at Greenbank. We had wall to wall (or should that be mountain to mountain) sunshine which showed Derwent Water and the garden to stunning effect. The house itself is lovely and with two lounges available plus a separate dining room, the communal areas were more spacious than some hotels I've stayed in. We had... More

Booked a last minute visit over the weekend, travelling with friends. We arrived quite late (well after 8pm), but this didn't seem to be an issue. Our room was lovely and warm (Room 2) and quiet!! Plenty of hot water for a bath and very comfortable bed. Huge windows that open for fresh air and lovely views. Breakfast was relaxed... More

We have just come back from a 3 day break at Greenbanks and like all other 5 star reviewers my husband and I cannot praise this place highly enough. From the lovely, warm welcome on our arrival to the stunning views from our bedroom (Room 2) our 2 day stay here could not be better. We have been coming to... More
