Although a little while ago now (half term) I have only nothing but praise for the service, comfort and gentle entertainment that the owners of scales farm give from the moment of arrival to your departure. Comfortable rooms with mod cons, choice of breakfast, advise on the types of walks, maps, weather print outs and a walk up Blencathra just... More

We have just returned having spent 3 wonderful nights at Scales Farm. From the minute we arrived at 8pm we were greeted with warm drinks and homemade ginger cake - this level of hospitably last the duration of the stay. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean, the breakfasts of a high quality and accommodating for my veggie partner. The... More

We stayed for a long weekend with 2 children. Had a large family room with large kingsize, bunk beds and single bed, still plenty of room. The room was immaculately clean with every thing you could need. The owners are exceptionally helpful and friendly, Helen's cake on arrival was a lovely touch. Breakfast - fab. Really the best bed and... More

My son, nephew and I had a wonderful stay at Scales Farm Guest House. We arrived quite a bit later than expected after coming up the Helvellyn Ridge. It was getting dark and we were all pretty wet and tired. To my amazement the owners offered to come out themselves and pick us up. We were warmly welcomed and could... More

We have just returned from another wonderful break at Scales Farm. The room was excellent in all respects. The warmth of the welcome, attention to detail, particularly in the breakfasts was very welcome. I would warmly recommend this guest house to any considering a Lake District break.

We've never stayed at a nicer B&B - dog friendly too - than this and what's more it's right next door to the delightfully cheerful and also dog-friendly White Horse Inn where we had just what we needed after a long drive from Gloucestershire - good beer and good food. Scales itself is commendable in every way - the extremely... More

This was our 2nd stay here and and we were in the same family room as last time...the refurbed bathroom has made it into a really nice family room. The rest of the building has some interesting features and is well laid out...the guest sitting room was handy for relaxing with a bottle of wine after putting all the kids... More

I was taking my sister, who is disabled, away for a few days to the Lake District and wanted somewhere that catered for a number of requirements. Scales Farm Guest House met ALL our needs. It was a fantastic place, easy to find (5-10 minutes drive from Keswick centre), plenty of parking, and very friendly hosts. Helen welcomed us on... More

From any B&B you expect a good bed and and a great breakfast. This B&B offers this in spades . My wife particularly liked the bed and pillows, she is even thinking of buying the same for our bed. The offering at breakfast is very flexible in terms of choice and volume. The quality and service is very good! Location... More

Many, many thanks to Helen, Ivan and Richard for the very warm and generous hospitality and excellent accommodation they provided for us on our honeymoon. We had everything we needed and if we wanted something extra, nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely, excellent choices for breakfast, wonderful to watch the wildlife outside the window, and our hosts... More
