Cumbria House is wonderful. I have been staying in the Lake District for over 30 years and this is one of the very best places that I've stayed at. Two friends and I stayed there for a walking weekend. Ruth and James made us feel welcome from the moment they greeted us at the front door. Nothing was too much... More

Spotless rooms with very comfy beds. Off road parking in a quiet location, so no excuse not to have a great night's sleep. Lovely owners who make you feel very welcome. Wide choice of breakfast to suit all (I recommend the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon & avocado). We will definitely stay here again.

Cumbria House really does have everything you could want from a guest house; private parking, wi-fi, clean rooms, comfortable bed and exceptional breakfasts. James & Ruth know the area well and are happy to advise on walks/outings. We loved having fresh milk available for our room, too. Cumbria House is just a minute from Keswick's pubs and restaurants and it... More

Excellent breakfast, with a range of non-traditional alternatives to the normal full English. Warm, comfortable room. Good location close to town centre (2 mins walk) but still has off-street parking.Views of the hills from the rooms. Guest lounge with log fire.

Amazing hospitality from Ruth & James at this very welcoming guest house. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They even kept us up to date with news about the rising waters of the River Greta during the flood.

Recently spent a weekend with a ground of friends at the Cumbria House. The location is ideal for Keswick Centre with good parking facilities. Rooms are clean and airy and the breakfast was excellent. Ruth & James are great hosts, we had a chilled and relaxing time. Highly recommended. We plan to return next year.
