We booked Pitcairn House for our recent stay in Keswick based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and were not dissapointed. Steve and Heather are the best hosts we have met in our years of visiting The Lakes. They are very friendly and welcoming and keep the accomodation immaculate. The breakfast also is superb with plenty of choice, you also have a choice of what time to take breakfast (not always the case elsewhere). The property is brilliantly placed for accessing the town and lake and also has the significant advantage of some private parking. We had room 3 and the views of the fells are wonderful. All in all you cant go wrong with Pitcairn.
