The Pitcairn was 5 mins walking from the town center. The rooms were clean and comfortable, though a little small. Heather and Steve is very friendly and helpful. They showed us where to eat, which restaurant was good, and where to visit. Good suggestions.

I stayed here for two nights recently and would definitely go back if I am in Keswick again. The hosts make you feel very welcome and at ease in their home, but you also have all the privacy you need to come and go as you please. The room I had was very comfortable and cosy, with lovely views and... More

We've just returned from an absolutely faultless stay with Heather & Steve at their delightful B&B. The whole house is spotless, comfortably furnished, and has a lovely homely feel. Lots of little extra touches made us feel especially welcome, such as Heather's delicious baking, Steve helping with our bags, and the foot cream kindly supplied in our room - most... More

This B&B is run by a lovely couple who are friendly and helpful. The place has a lovely atmosphere and we happily chatted to other guests over breakfast (I've stayed before and made friends last time too!) It was clean and comfortable and we would definitely stay again!!

Lovely warm welcome from Heather and Steve. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a smashing view. We opted for the family room due to one of our party having mobility problems and struggling with stairs. I was a little disappointed with the décor as I don't like brown and think it was a little dated. We were greeted... More

This is my third time staying at Pitcairn House and I'll be back again next year! Heather and Steve make me feel so welcome. Comfortable bed, great facilities, delicious breakfasts, complimentary cakes and kind hosts! I'd definitely recommend Pitcairn House to anyone looking to stay in the Lake District.

Heather and Steve made us very welcome upgrading our room without asking. The room had a lovely view and was very comfortable and had a nice ensuite. The breakfast was lovely as was the cupcakes left for guests. We were lucky to get a parking space so parking was not an issue. Would recommend this B & B without reservation.
