Beautiful views. Handy Inn next door for food/drinks. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable bed. Friendly welcome. Lovely breakfast. 5 minute drive from Keswick. Couldn't fault it really - a delightful little B&B.

Excellent stay in Swinside farmhouse rooms spacious and amazingly clean. The breakfast is brilliant far to much food to eat but really set us up for the day, they can also make you a packed lunch for a very small fee. All in all a lovely b&b run by Jo who can not do enough for you. Would definitely recommend...

Farm-like in that, it is a converted farmhouse with sheepfolds next to it but not an operating farm - so no much or smell. Located slightly away from tourist hub, it is great for those wanting to experience farm life in the Lakes along with some peace & quiet. Cat Bells is minutes away while Buttermere and Crummock Water are...

Swinside Farmhouse is in a great rural location but not far from Keswick and the M6. It a great place to stay for visiting the lakes or a good stop off if you are travelling to Scotland from the South. It is spotlessly clean and caters for every need. The breakfast was delicious and the owners were very friendly and...
