This is my second time staying here. What I like most of this house is the good quality mattress and sheets. It is one of the cleanest B&B. Every morning, the cleaning lady comes at 9:00 and does a superb job! It also feels very homely and not so business like. My 9 year old son feels very safe and... More

Difficult to add much more to all the previous reviews!...we've stayed here three times now and the food and accommodation have always been first class and friendly welcomes . Handy location for Northern Lakes with public transport available if required . Everything is spotless and very comfortable .

Powe House sets a standard for what a B&B should be - well-furnished, clean, comfortable rooms with Wi-fi included, friendly yet non-intrusive service and a delicious breakfast cooked to perfection with top quality ingredients. It's also only a 25 minute or so beautiful, scenic walk right into the centre of Keswick. And all this provided at a very reasonable price,... More

We have written excellent reviews of Powe House after three previous visits and it certainly did not disappoint when, after a three year gap, we stayed here again. This time we stayed for 6 nights and we cannot praise this lovely place and it's charming owners too highly. Our room was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast is...

My partner and I have just returned from the Lake District after staying at several hotels / B&B's. We both agreed that the highlight was Powe house. Firstly the B&B is situated just outside of keswick which was a nice relief from the crowds and only a 20 minute walk into town for food etc in the evening. The room... More

Stayed for two nights. Great location and house. Breakfast was excellent. It is a short walk into Keswick from here across fields. Great for access to whinlatter and the secure bike storage was very handy.

Powe house is the perfect place to stay to visit the northern lakes. Spotlessly clean rooms, lovely breakfast and wonderful hosts in Andrew & Helen. Everything was just how you would wish it to be! Would recommend Powe House to anyone visiting the Keswick area of the lakes. We wil definitely visit again

Stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. The place is lovely, clean and friendly and with great views of the surrounding area being only a couple of minutes from Keswick. We informed them prior to our arrival about my wife's dietary requirements and they were more than happy to accomodate providing us with gluten free bread and sausages at... More

We have just visited Powe House on the personal recommendation of others who have stayed and were not disappointed .The accommodation and service is of the highest standard ,we have stayed in 4 star hotels which could not hold a candle to this accommodation. The cleanliness and attention to detail at this guest house would be difficult to surpass and... More
