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.

This is an excellent place. It is very well located near the main route through the Lakes, just to the west of Keswick. Braithwaite is an attractive small village with a good range of pubs, and access to attractive hill walks straight from the village. Phil and Helen are considerate hosts, who welcome you with tea and cake and provide... More
