Can't fault this B & B in a beautiful house, ideal for exploring the Lakes in a quiet but accessible location near Keswick. Friendly, helpful owners, comfortable room with lovely view and really excellent breakfast. Also we had a great evening meal at 'The Chalet' nearby. You won't regret booking a room here.

Stayed here at the beginning of October for a couple of nights. A friendly welcome greeted us after which we were shown to our room which was on the ground floor. Very tastefully decorated, a modern room with a large bed, modern furniture, tea and coffee facilities with a normal sized kettle, flat screen TV, radio alarm clock and a... More

I hesitate to want to tell the world about Powe House just in case it becomes SO popular that we can never get ourselves booked in again. We've been coming back to this charming B&B in Portinscale, about a mile or so's walk from Keswick town centre for several years now, and have never been disappointed. The house has been... More

What a fabulous time we have had at the beautiful Powe House. Absolutely superb accommodation in a wonderful part of the Lake District. The reason for our visit was to celebrate a 50th birthday. Andrew and Helen were unaware of this but, after having seen the birthday cards whilst servicing the room, decided to leave a bottle of wine for... More

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
