“A delightful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2005

Joe and Audrey truly are delightful hosts, who clearly enjoy what they are doing, and it shows. Joe especially is quite knowledgeable about the area and made a number of suggestions about locations and activities that fit perfectly with our interests. The property is very neat, clean and comfortable - as well as being an enjoyable walk to (and away from) the town of Keswick. We had a marvelous time, found this to be one of the better values on our trip, and do not hesitate in recommending Rickerby Grange to others. We'll certainly be back.

Joe and Audrey Fagan are your genial hosts when you stay at Rickerby Grange. They clearly enjoying running their country guest house and making their guests welcome.

The food is good - usually two choices of main course are available - and the hot water is plentiful!

I cannot praise this place enough!

Appears that the new owners have injected a much needed breath of fresh air into the place. Location, rooms, food, price, ambiance; this place has it all.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Small hotel called country house hotel but located in a village and run as a guest house. The owner had previously owned a guest house and her manner was overbearing.Meals were minimalist and there was not the generiousity found in good guest house or hotels, e.g the evening dinners had small portions and the after dinner cheese board was brought to the table and small slithers of cheese were put on side plates.It was not a holiday, no sense of care or relaxation, that we would want ourselves or others to experience.
