We both loved our stay at West View in Keswick again. Comfy room and very friendly owners who looked after us well. We got great advice on how to spend our days and the breakfasts are pretty good too. Keswick is a beautiful part of the world so I would definitely recommend staying there for a few days for a...

Thanks for writing such a good review. It was good to meet you again and to travel 10,000 miles for a second stay takes our breath away. We even managed to supply good weather, although I can't guarantee that if you contemplate a third holiday in Keswick. Have a safe trip home. More

My wife and I stayed at West View in the Causey Pike room for two nights from July 31st to August 2nd. The room was cool, spacious and clean with nice park and mountain views. The king size bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean with an ample supply of hot water. Breakfast was freshly prepared with a variety of... More

Thanks for writing such a great review. We agree with all of it! The view changes daily from here with sun then showers blowing in and, then the snows dusting the fell tops in the winter. Your home is famous for its autumn colours, I hope you can come back to compare. More

My partner & I visited the West View guest house in August 2014. It was an ideal location to the town centre. Further, it was a 5 minute walk from Derwentwater lake. It was clean & comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. The owners were also really helpful when giving advice on popular tourist attractions. We would definately stay there again.

My wife and I stayed at West View for two nights during our trip across England. Our room was clean, neat, and had an excellent view of the surrounding area. Dawn was very helpful getting us setup and providing information about the area. The location is very convenient to the bus station (5 min walk) and to the lake short... More

We had a wonderful stay at West View in July, three nights over the weekend. First of all, the location is great - right down by the lake but a shirt walk to town also. It's very peaceful too, despite the location near the Main Street. Secondly, our hosts were so obliging - we required a cot got our 12... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at West View. We stayed in the lovely room at the top of the house. The bed was large and very comfortable. The room was light, bright and airy. We where very grateful for the fan provided as Keswick enjoyed the three hottest days of the year so far. The ensuite... More

Shortly after myself and girlfriend got together, I took her up to the Lake District for a long weekend away together. We both enjoy the great outdoors and Keswick seemed an ideal place to base ourselves for the week. We found parking easy enough on the road, although I can understand how in the height of summer you might be... More

We booked West View for a trip to Keswick to run in the half marathon. Normally we have the dog but being dogless this time had a bit more choice. The location is perfect for getting into town and back from the rugby club with tired legs lol. It's also ideally positioned to get to all the pubs.The room we... More

As a professional photographer me and my wife travel all over the country in various hotels and bed and breakfasts. Upon arrival at the west view we were warmly greeted by the owners and after a quick chat with paul and dawn we were shown to the casey pike room. I can sum up the room in one word. Stunning....
