I will always return here. Having stayed here several times before I was again more than happy with excellent service, comfort and food. My girlfriend and I took friends with us and I know they loved their experience too.

We love this B&B, its friendly, meticulousy clean and comfortable and in an ideal location. Fantastic choice of breakfast - everything you could possibly want. Our only regret for 2014 was that we could only manage a one night stay due to other commitments but we will ensure that we have more time in 2015 to enjoy this lovely B&B... More

Love this b&b. We have stayed here before, and recently returned for a winter break in Keswick. This time we stayed in room 4 which is roomy, but also cosy, with a new en suite. The establishment is spotlessly clean and well presented, Denise and Rod do an amazing job, and are so friendly. They have been working hard since... More

They are both very knowledgable and offer great advice as to things to do in and around the area. The breakfast was fantastic and the whole place is immaculately presented.
