Whether this was down to the excellent large double aspect room (room 4), with the super-airated-jet-power shower, the comfy bed, the pot of tea and shortbread on arrival, the denises delectable cooked breakfast/fruit compote/selection of cereals, the ever so...

Wonderful weekend up in Keswick, with a wonderful and flexible welcome. The room was lovely, and given I'd been unwell just prior to arriving, it felt like a home from home. Friendly welcome, with a lovely bottle of wine to celebrate the occasion. Breakfast was excellent and it was just perfect. We'll be back, probably on the bikes next time!... More

Rod and Denise have a superb B&B with very spacious, cosy bedrooms, great breakfasts and are lovely to get to know. My girlfriend and I had a very relaxing stay with them and would thoroughly recommend to anyone else. Will be back there next time we stay in Keswick.
