5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2003

I am a coeliac and Jenkin Hill Cottage was first class. Kelvyn and Christine Sheppard completely understand the need for a gluten-free diet and I trusted them completely. Every food offered to non-coeliacs was offered to me (in a gluten-free form).

The house has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and my husband and I settled in immediately.

Kelvyn and Christine had thought of everything that we might need and the accommodation was of a very high standard. I would recommend this establishment without reservation.

I have gluten intolerance (coeliac disease) so it was a great relief to me to find some accommodation in the Lake District that specialises in catering for such problems. Not only was I able to enjoy excellent quality @safe@ home cooked food, but the proprietors went out of their way to ensure everything was OK for me. On top of that the guest house is in the most beautiful location in a village not far from keswick.
