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

The cleanliness and attention to detail at this guest house would be difficult to surpass and... More

We have been coming to stay at Powe House each year since 2010 and can honestly say that it is the best B and B we have ever stayed in. From the friendly and warm welcome from Andrew and Helen, to the comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms, to the delicious breakfasts and packed lunches what's not to love about this... More

Our room was very comfortable and there is a very powerful shower in bathroom. Met Andrew a bit later and again a very nice welcome.We had excellent breakfasts and the house is ideally situated for... More

We can't say enough about Andrew and Helen's cheerful hospitality, restaurant recommendations, superb made-to-order breakfasts and other kindnesses. Room 5: spacious, immaculately clean, well-wired for travel gadgets, and pleasantly quiet considering its location on the front of the house. Although denominated a 'guest house' vs. a hotel or inn, you'll find virtually everything you'd expect at a larger establishment with... More

Returned to Powe House (virtually on the northern shores of Derwent Water) having been there in 2011 and have to say it was just as good this time. Went with another couple for a 3 day walking break and had rooms 3 and 5 at the front of the house both of which were clean and very comfortable with HD... More

It's been a couple of years now since we stayed at this lovely little B and B. Me and my husband stayed there as a little birthday treat for myself. We stayed in room 2 with a view of skiddaw from the window. The room was immaculate and you had everything you needed. Tea,coffee and biscuits were replaced every day... More
