The Hermiston Guest House is in a great location, superb facilities and fantastic breakfasts, but what makes it special are the hosts, Helen and Phil, who make your stay so enjoyable. My daughter and I spent four nights here recently and were impressed with everything - a very high quality B&B, comfortable beds, and excellent local produce used in the... More

The Hermiston is a wonderful bed and breakfast as a base to visit the lakes with Keswick not too far away. Our room was perfect and the view of Skiddaw fells was a lovely sight to wake up to. Helen and Phil are the perfect host, interested in our day and nothing was too much trouble. On Tuesday my husband... More

We're delighted that you all had such a good time and enjoyed the photography trip. It was a pleasure to have such a lovely group of people stay with us and I know Phil particularly enjoyed being in the company of friends who love landscape photography as much as he does!

This is a brilliant B&B. The owners, Phil and Helen were great at advising on places to visit and recommended some excellent pubs in the village to eat in the evenings. The rooms are bright, clean and well maintained. Breakfast was fab too! I shall definitely return and recommend Hermiston for Lake District holidays.

This is a delightful place to stay. Helen and Phil are superb hosts. You can walk to several local pubs for supper and the breakfasts are special, I loved the fresh fruit salad and scambled eggs on a muffin. 10/10 on every score.

Braithwaite is an attractive small village with a good range of pubs, and access to attractive hill walks straight from the village.
