Lakeland View
Ranked #85 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2013

My friend and I stayed here at the beginning of August and it was absolutely perfect. Situated just outside of B&B city in the middle of Keswick (although still only a couple of mintues walk from the main high street), Lakeland View provides a stunning view of the Skiddaw Mountains and is only a 15 minute walk away from Derwentwater. Les and Julie were fabulous hosts, the rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was great. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Keswick!

Absolutely fantastic B&B in the heart of Keswick. My husband and I have just returned from 1 night here and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Very reasonably priced, fantastic hospitality, gorgeous bedrooms and delicious breakfast. Not much else anyone could ask for. We will definitely return for a longer stay. Thank you!

having just spent 4 nights at Lakeland View room 2. although at the front, road noise was minimal
and the views of Latrigg+Skiddaw,very welcome, We believe the the reviews do not do this wonderful b+b full justice. We feel you would be very hard pushed to find better in Keswick.
cleanliness+a very friendly hosts Les+Julie make this the best b+b We have ever stayed at.
our return will be guaranteed..

We stayed two nights at Lakeland View when we joined my brother and his wife for a pleasant relaxing weekend in Keswick with a planned ascent of Helvellyn. Les and Julie made us all very welcome, were super hosts, and our rooms were delightful. The breakfast was extremely good and perfect to prepare you for a day on he fells. We would happily recommend Lakeland View to our friends.

We have just returned from staying at the Lakeland View. You always wonder whether or not the information given on the website is genuine, but believe me, it is. Julie and Les who run the B & B were so friendly and helpful.
When we arrived we were given our choice of rooms. We chose Room 3, being at the back of the property. The property is on the main road into Keswick, and is only 5 minutes walk to the town centre. Each bedroom was excellent and each having its own ensuite, which was small, but perfectly adequate. Ours had a powerful shower.
The rooms were spotlessly clean with everything you could wish for.
The rooms at the front of the house (1 and 2) had views over Skiddaw and Latrigg, but had very good double glazing so you didn't notice the noise of the road.
There was a lovely little dining room, again, spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were delicious, cooked to perfection, with choices of cereals, fruit juice, fruit etc, with ample tea and coffee.
The only negative was that there was no lounge to sit in, but that is not a problem at all, and didn't bother us in the slightest, as we never use them anyway.
There is parking for 3 cars. Behind the property are a couple of small businesses, with no noise from them at all. We used to look out of our bedroom at night to the hills and take photographs of the ever changing sky over the hills.
Julie and Les were very helpful, they found out what our interests were and guided us on places to visit.
We had mixed weather while we were there, but that can happen anywhere in this country!!
I would heartily recommend Lakeland View, we will certainly go back and stay here if we are visiting the area again.
Thanks Julie and Les, we had a lovely time with you. Your little B & B is a credit to you.

My wife and I just spent six weeks at Lakeland View Lodge during February and March and it felt like we were living at home. Julie and Les are excellent hosts and took care of all our needs. The lodge is clean, comfortable, and spacious with everything you need. Close to the town center, restaurants and pubs, all are within easy walking distance. It has good parking facilities which are rare for Keswick and Lakeland View is situated beside a small lane of interesting eclectic shops run by pleasant friendly people. The wi-fi was sporadic at times, but this seems to be common problem across the UK especially at peak hours. Overall, we would recommend Lakeland View to anyone visiting Keswick.
