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...

Booked this B&B via the internet as a surprise for my wife. This was our first time in keswick so it was hit or miss where we would book. Could not have been more pleased and satisfied with my choice. The welcome from Dawn was excellent and our room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was supurb and Dawn and Paul... More

Lovely, spacious room (large and comfy bed!) with a very modern en suite bathroom, all very clean. We also enjoyed the cosy and beautiful guest lounge. Breakfast is scrumptious with all fresh products and home made jam. The hosts Dawn and Paul are really friendly, they made us feel at home from the first moment. Above all they are experts... More

We were welcomed with tea and biscuits and it was hard to believe that Dawn and Paul have been doing b and b for 10 years; they were full of enthusiasm, helpful and accommodating. Room was spotless albeit small, and lounge overlooked the pitch and putt course with Causey Pike in the background. Breakfast very good, rates very reasonable, free... More
