fabulous stay at Oakthwaite. The room was light, bright, airy, modern and clean and it was the biggest bed I've ever slept in! Added bonus was the free wifi. Breakfast was very tasty and there was a good selection. The hosts were very friendly and attentive but not in your face. We will definitely return.

We stayed at Oakthwaite House back in September and had a fantastic time. The house itself is stunning. The room we had was very spacious and immaculately clean. Breakfast was fantastic - one of the best fry-ups I've ever had (no exaggeration). It's very conveniently located - a 2 minute walk (if that) to the centre of Keswick and less... More

Sandra is a lovely hostess and the B & B is centrally located with parking easy to find on the street. The room was comfortable and really clean and had all you needed. Breakfast was great and loaded you up for all the walks you can do in the area.

Very friendly and helpful welcome, very clean and comfortable accommodation with a good choice of breakfast options. Good location close to the centre so once we had parked that was it. Lots to do in the area and a number of good pubs. What else do you want from a B&B.

We immediately felt at home when we were welcomed by Peter and Sandra. We stayed in Room 2 which was generously sized with a lovely view and nice en-suite. Our room was very well kept, clean and comfortable with a very tasteful decor. It was only a 5 minute walk into the centre of Keswick, which was ideal for us.... More
