Stayed at Glencoe for two nights whilst cycling east to west / west to east - C2C bike ride. Couldn't wish for better accomodation or hosts. Room very comfortable, breakfast first class, and what better than home made cake at the end of a hard day in the saddle!. Keith and Sally kindly stored my bike overnight, and rose very... More

With so many places in Keswick to chose from, I took notice of the excellent reviews for Glencoe and I was not disappointed. Keith and Sally really know how to make your stay as comfortable as possible and seem to have anticipated your every need. If I need to stay in Keswick again I won't think about going anywhere else.

We actually stayed in February 2015 after I decided we needed a last minute break away for Valentines. I searched for hours to get in somewhere and Glencoe were very accommodating when I asked if I could just book one night instead of the full weekend. We were well looked after during our stay and everyone was very friendly so... More

Thank you for the kind words. We are very happy to accommodate one night stays and only ask for 2 night ones on Friday & Saturday during the summer months. We understand that walkers and cyclists are often just passing through. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Best wishes Keith & Sally More

Stayed here as a group of 6 people and this is by far the best B&B we have stayed at in Keswick. Lovely friendly hosts, great breakfast, very clean rooms, quiet street location near to the centre of town and homemade cakes every day (the perfect pick me up after a hard day's walking). Would thoroughly recommend this B&B and... More

The previous review concerned groups of cyclists coming through. This review concerns a group of walkers who stayed for a few days. Some of these groups have been together for many years and the fun and laughter they have is wonderful. We love hosting these groups and are so pleased that your stay was enjoyable. We look forward to seeing... More

We stayed at the Glencoe Guest House in May as part of a C2C adventure as a party of six and really could not have asked for more. The 'Cake 2 Cake' cycling adventure started late on the Friday night of our arrival as we were warmly greeted with tea and cake. The great hospitality, wonderful breakfasts, support and more...

We regularly host groups tackling the C2C route and take great pleasure in being able to share their experience. We are always impressed with the positive attitude and zest for life the groups demonstrate. Thanks for the review, it was great to be part of your adventure and we hope to see you again soon.

Keith and Sally are fantastic hosts at Glencoe. The accommodations are very good and the location super. Most important is that Keith knows the area well and if your looking for some guidance on hikes to take he's your guy. If I'm ever in Keswick again that is where I'll be staying. Oh yeah I almost forgot - Sally makes... More

My group had booked out all the rooms for three nights and we were treated to a different home-made cake when we got back from our travels each afternoon. My room was always nicely prepared and the breakfasts were really good. We have already booked a return visit next year.

It is always good to have large groups book to stay, the atmosphere is fun and we enjoy the banter, but most of all making you feel relaxed and comfortable is a must. To know you have booked already for next year is a compliment in itself and we look forward to offering the same high standards on your return.... More

There are hundreds of B & B' s just like this one in Keswick yet Keith and Sally put in additional touches which give it the edge over all the others I have ever stayed at (and there are many !)

I have stayed in lots of lovely B&Bs but Glencoe is without doubt the best to date. From the warm welcome to my rather sad goodbyes I felt at home, looked after and comfortable. The elegant Victorian house is beautiful, in a quiet street but close to the centre of Keswick.I had room 6, the single room on the top... More
