Great location in a really amazing and cute town. The owners are so friendly and welcoming! The cats are great as well. I definitely recommend staying at this lovely B&B. I'll without a doubt be visiting again hopefully sooner than later! :)

The Pitcairn House was a lovely base for our exploration of the Lake District. Hosts Heather and Steve make sure everything is as lovely as can be for your stay, from crisp and clean rooms, delicious, piping hot breakfasts and amazing local knowledge! Our rooms were at the top floor since the B&B was quite booked out by the time... More

Lovely property, very handy for the town itself and providing a good base to explore the area. This was a first trip for us to the Lake District without kids and we intend to return very soon for more. Pitcairn House was immaculate with tremendous views and a cracking breakfast. We've meant to stop over in Keswick for years, rather... More

We, a party of 3, stayed for 3 nights at Pitcairn House during our visit to the Lake District in June 2016. It is in a very convenient location, both for exploring Keswick and Lake Derwentwater on foot and for visiting the many other lakes and towns in Cumbria. Pitcairn House is spick and span, and the amenities provided are... More
