Nice hot showers which we needed after our muddy trail race, Pleasant owner who was very helpful.

The owner was very welcoming and allowed to get the keys early. Breakfast was at 8.15 or 8.30 and your choices needed to be in the previous evening, which was great coming down to your breakfast without having to wait. :-) Rooms were on the small size but I think they were reasonable for the location and price.

This B&B is a little gem of a place, tucked away on a quiet side street only a few minutes walk into Keswick village centre. The first impression when you walk into the hallway is it is stunning, beautifully decorated, with thick wool carpet (ideal to walk on with sore, aching feet - having taken off your walking boots).
