Wonderful, welcoming hosts, perfect location, excellent warm and comfortable accomodation, food fresh and fabulous, brilliant mountain views from our room - what more could anyone ask for! Clare and David provided advice on all aspects of our stay in the area and their meticulous attention to cleanliness and finer details made our short break extremely enjoyable.

Service: Fabulous from the moment you arrive. We had barely parked the car before Clare and David appeared to welcome us and help us with our luggage. We were in Room 3 which had stunning views of Latrigg and Skiddaw and had everything you would expect from a high quality room. The bed was extremely comfortable and afforded a great... More

I stayed with family as we were attending a wedding nearby. Room at the top was great with excellent views. Great location to the high street and Lake District. I would like to return to see what the new owners have to offer.

Clare and David are very warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble from giving advice and directions to walks around Keswick, making up a flask of tea for us to take with us on our walks, to where to eat out and even booking restaurants for you. The bedrooms are nicely decorated with comfy beds and all the extras... More
