We had our 3rd lovely stay here, having stay ed here 30 years ago for our honeymoon. We had great room and en suite with the most fantastic views of Derwent Water and Skiddaw down the valley, and across to High Spy and Cat Bells. Breakfasts were really good, and certainly set you up for the day. On our first... More

We were greeted by the landlady/owner who gave us some local knowledge, asked about our breakfast preferences and helped us settle in with some tea and biscuits. There was a slight mix up with the room but it seemed to be down to the website we'd booked through and it was sorted out very quickly. I didn't make it down... More

We were very happy to trip over Greenbank on our mini road trip south from Scotland. Janet was very kind and found me a room with a long/large bed, I am 6'5". Room 8 is on the ground floor with a large double bed and good space around it. Clean on suite with bath and the interesting hand held shower... More

Janet welcomed us with coffee in one of the two living rooms on our arrival after a long journey. Our room had magnificent views of Derwent Water and Maiden Moor, and was extremely comfortable and well-equipped, with a bath (hurrah!). Greenbank is close to the Derwentwater Hotel and a short distance from Grange with its cafes, and the beautiful bridges... More

My parents took me, my partner and our 3 year old son for a week in Keswick. We were expecting it to all be a bit cramped but to our delight the apartment they had rented had 3 en-suite rooms, living room, kitchen and a private garden. Everything was spotless, comfortable and really well stocked. Although we didn't have the... More

Lovely stay in may 2014. Stayed 4 nights. Very welcoming and friendly and homely. Comfortable rooms with lovely views and pleasant gardens. Good breakfast, nice comfortable beds. Only bad thing I have to say is the shower was alillte awkward to use. Nice clean home from home. would stay again

My husband and I have recenty had a 2 night break at Greenbank Country House which was bought as a present for us. Our stay was wonderful, lovely bedrooms spacious and comfortable with fantastic views. Excellent home cooked breakfast, and most of all we were made to feel so welcome. Highly recomended.

Have just returned from a 2 night stay here and, as per my last review of this guesthouse, everything was spot on. The room was cosy, the bed very comfortable, great view from our room and a beautifully cooked breakfast. Add in an owner who goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome and you have the perfect... More

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
