I don't normally write reviews but made an exception for this place. It ticks all the boxes. The rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated and clean. The owner Jo is lovely and was very helpful, beyond the call of duty, to make our stay as wonderful as possible. But the cherry on the cake was breakfast: culinary alchemy of the highest... More

The Swinside Farmhouse is near Keswick but right in the country. The rooms are comfortable and every little detail has been thought of. The breakfast is amazing. There is no communal lounge sitting area as the family live downstairs but there is a very pleasant pub which does meals right across the road.

We stayed 29th & 30th September in an en-suite room. The room was immaculate & everything we wished for. The breakfast was just superb, and that fresh fruit bowl........ delicious !!! We are keen walkers who like to be "well away from it all" (We stay regularly at Burnthwaite / Wasdale Head) which is as remote as it gets, so... More

Not a dislike, but fortunately we had a car - venue could be difficult to access via public transport. Spent two nights in this quiet scenic location whilst touring the Lake District. Accommodation clean, comfortable and adequately furnished. Jo was a great hostess, and very helpful in providing directions and a map to local attractions. The pub over the road... More
