Despite the wet weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Keswick. The Rivendell was a lovely guesthouse, a real find. Such a friendly couple who made us and our dog feel very welcome. Excellent breakfast, really set us up for the day and we even got a sausage for the dog on both mornings! Rolo loved it! Will visit again... More

Just got back from a couple of nights in Rivendell Guest House. Lovely, clean, comfortable and excellent breakfast. My partner had never been to Keswick before and Rivendell certainly helped towards a brilliant couple of days. Needless to say that we will be staying there again next time we go to Keswick.

My partner and I with our patterdale dog spent three nights at the Rivendell Guest House. Pat and Linda are friendly, welcoming people and nothing is too much trouble for them. The house is spotlessly clean and our room was very comfortable. There's plenty of choice at breakfast time including real coffee in a cafetiere with another pot offered if... More

A group of us stayed from Friday through to Sunday and I have to say, from start to finish, this Guest House met every expectation. Lovely couple greeted us and allowed us to leave our bags whilst they cleaned and prepared the room. Clean, tidy, lovely food and a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Highly recommended. Will definitely be back.

First time away with my 6 month old dog and partner and we booked this gem by chance. Pat and Linda, were amazing and we left feeling we had made 2 new friends. The location and accommodation are excellent. We most certainly will be visiting again.

Our second visit here, a very warm welcome on arrival like a home from home! Room spotlessly clean... Breakfast was fabulous and plenty of choice even a sausage for the dog. A lovely place to stay so close to the town centre and the hosts really make you want to return.

Solo travel is difficult enough & in a Country I don't know. B&B was so clean bright inviting & cost effective. Owners so hospitable & helpful with advice how 2 get around the district & beyond. Very genuine owners with a wonderful approach on how to run a business and treat their guests staying with them. Highly recommend this B&B... More

Stayed over a long weekend hiking with friends. Excellent, helpful and friendly service. Good room and facilities, good quality breakfast, the yoghurt and fruit particularly welcome, going some way to counter-balance the full English. Handy for town. Would definitely stay again.
