Thanks to Paul and Melissa for making our group of fell walkers welcome and comfortable for a couple of days.
Super breakfast. You don't often see fresh fruit salad at a B&B. Quality sausages (this is Cumbria!) and bacon, and perfect poached and scrambled eggs.
Rooms comfortable, well-appointed and very clean.
Parking is on the road, and can be hard to find, but we always managed.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Lynwood and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. With friendly but unobtrusive attention from Melissa & Paul, comfortable well appointed bedrooms, convenient central location and excellent breakfasts it provided a first class base for our stay in Keswick. Definitely one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in.

This is a lovely house very close to the centre of Keswick. There is a warm welcome when you arrive and you are shown to your spacious, well equipped room with en-suite. The owners pay attention to detail - the rooms contain toiletries, towels, etc and even a welcoming chocolate!
The location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from the centre of Keswick and with easy access to the beautiful sights of the Lake District. There are guide books and details of local activities available to assist you in planning the perfect holiday.
The breakfast is excellent - a good variety of cereals, fruit juices, fresh fruit and yoghurt are laid out for you to help yourself to whilst your full English breakfast is freshly cooked for you..
This was a fantastic experience which we fully intend to repeat.

Room Tip: Fantastic views from higher rooms.

I took a group of 7 up to Keswick and used Lynwood again out of choice, The enitire experience is superb, Firstly your hosts, Paul and Melissa, welcome you and make you feel exactly that,,,, Welcome,!! Not just another transaction going through, They are polite courteous and genuine people who really do embrace you into their home, it is a great start and it doesn't stop there, throughout our stay they took time to chat with us all about anything and everything, treating us all more like friends. This is my second visit here and it was excatly the same last time. The rooms are utterly spotless, modernised, well decorated, very good bathroom facilities with an abundance of toiletries provided for your use. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms , whilst large enough, remain warm and cosy . Breakfast is served with smile from Paul whilst Melissa prepares your breakfast feast, There is an good selection of cereals, fruits, juices to suit any palate prior to you main breakfast being served, Here you can either take the wonderfull full english with eggs how you like them done or you can also step outside of this and request a breakdown or variety depending on what you partucularly want, for instance I just like either poached or scrambled eggs on toast prior to a big fell walk and the scrambled eggs were delicious}. The location is excellent being just a five minute walk frrom the centre of Keswick {market square}. This is my second visit this year with my previous visit {with a different 4 friends} going excatly the same all amongst these two groups will most definately will be going back. Thank you Paul and Melissa, long may your success continue.

Had a two night stay at Lynwood. Melissa and Paul really made us feel really welcome and were the most fantastic hosts. Excellent B&B, very clean indeed. The 5 minute walk (if that) to the market square was just perfect. Lovely views from our window.Breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. Have already recommended Lynwood to friends and family! Many thanks for making our first visit to the Lakes an extremely pleasant one.x DJ

Room Tip: They are all lovely
