My wife and I spent two nights at The West View, 13th &14th June 2014. We were made very, very welcome by both Paul and Dawn. The room was very comfortable and we both especially enjoyed the very spacious en suite bathroom. Tea and Coffee facility was great and we didn't run short of either tea, coffee or biscuits. The...

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....

Stayed here in March for 2 nights for a Mountain Bike Race in Whinlatter. Dawn & Paul were very hospitable, nothing was too much trouble...including the very early breakfast we requested on the Sunday morning!! (which I have to say, was delicious). We stayed in the Causey Pike room, which is massive! The view is just stunning. The location is... More

The room and ensuite were spacious and very clean and tidy. Dawn was welcoming and hospitable, giving plenty of tips about places we wanted to visit. Parking is on-street (free) or public car park and whilst walking around when we were there I got the impression that's quite common for Keswick B&Bs. The location was great for getting to the...
