This B&B is ideally located, away from the hustle bustle of the tourist district, but within walking distance through fields to the action, in Keswick. Close to many trails to walk, or mountains to climb. The breakfasts were Full English, according to your taste.

We didn't have a car but we found the £5 taxi from Keswick affordable and convenient. The 20 min walk to town is enjoyable too. The location is peaceful, quiet and great... More
