I have stayed in Keswick many times as it is one of my favourite places to visit and to walk. I've stayed in other B&B's or a couple of times at the YHA. Other B&B's have been lovely, the Parkfield goes that extra mile!! Sue and John were brilliant hosts - nothing was too much trouble, including getting our very wet walking clothes & boots dry for us after a wet day on the fells!! The rooms are decorated and furnished to a high standard, lovely hand soap and hand lotion provided and the quilt was wonderful - I wanted to take it home with me! Well stocked hospitality tray.
The icing on top of the cake at this establishment are the breakfasts!!!! The welcoming breakfast table that greets you on a morning looks stunning with a wonderful healthy choice of lots of different fruits , individual fruits plus a fresh fruit salad and the greek yoghurt is to die for!!!. All the standard stuff is there too ie. fruit juices and individual cereal packets but there is also croissants and pastries should you be inclined. I stayed for 2 nights, on the Saturday morning I chose the Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg with Sliced Brioche which was divine and on the Sunday morning I indulged in the Full English breakfast including the Cumbrian Sausage and Black Pudding. It was all cooked wonderfully and provided a hearty start to both days walking. I will definitely stay again, it was extra special - thank you.
