“Brilliant Lakeland B&B highly recommended”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

The Lookout came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. The property has been refurbished by Liz and Dave to a very high standard and the hospitality was second to none. We stayed in room 1 where the view over the fells is magnificent, and the bathroom is a bonus. Breakfast was also excellent with plenty of choice from locally sourced products. We will definitely be staying again soon.

Room Tip: Room 1 has a great view and a fabulous bathroom

This was our first visit to The Lookout but it certainly won't be our last! We were travelling with friends from Australia who were amazed by the quality of the accommodation, food and hospitality of our hosts. We stayed in room 1 which was probably the best room we have stayed in anywhere on our extensive travels, with stunning views of the beautiful garden and the hills beyond. Our friends had room 3 which was just as impressive.

Room Tip: Room 1 was superb

Liz and Dave have gutted and rebuilt the B & B using lots of local slate and elm. They have chosen everything very well with top quality beds and shower room. We had a balcony with a fantastic view of the fells (Room 3). They even got me some gluten free bread and sausages for breakfast (lots of other Coeliac highlights in Keswick eg tearooms in George Fisher).

Stayed for three nights over the Royal Wedding/Bank Holiday weekend and have no hesitation in recommending the Lookout. Our room (room 3) was very clean, with a very large, modern bathroom and a balcony with stunning views towards Cat Bells and Causey Pike. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Liz and Dave were very pleasant without ever being intrusive. We thought the Lookout might be further out of Keswick than we really wanted, but, in actual fact, we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly we could get into the town by walking along the old railway track. We would definitely be happy to stay here again.

Had a great time at The Lookout! Dave and Liz run a lovely guest house, and are very helpful with walks/hikes and other suggestions. Really enjoyed our stay--everything was clean and cheerful, the food was great, and the views truly are magnificent!

I picked this B & B for the amazing modern design throughout featured on their website and when we arrived it was just as described. Dave & Liz the owners completely refurbished the place a couple of years ago and it is lovely.

We stayed in room 2 for 4 nights over Easter and had a great stay. The room was very nice with it's own balcony & view of Latrigg fell, a great power shower & modern bathroom with mod cons like LCD TV & hairdryer.

We caught taxis into town which were a bargain compared to Bournemouth! £3 into town, £4 on the bank hol mon. However it's a pleasant walk along the old railway path to stagger home after a meal out.

The breakfasts were delicious with loads of choice. A cooked breakfast really set us up for a day on the fells.

Dave recommended walks to us (thanks) we loved the walk up Great Gable! (Rich not so keen)!

I can't wait to visit again soon.

We stayed for two nights at The Lookout B&B on Chestnut Hill in Keswick. Firstly the views across Keswick with the panoramic of Skiddaw through to Bassenthwaite and across towards Grassmoor, were fantastic - to experience this most independently you should reserve room one - although the breakfast room, outside terrace, and garden all offer this view. We stayed in room two, which includes a cute little terrace which, although overlooks the (very handy and spacious) car park, does offer to the left a great view of Latrigg.

The room itself was excellent - spacious, smart, spotlessly clean, and plentifully appointed. The bed is large, comfy and perfect after a day's walking. The newly installed silent fridge was a handy addition for keeping both our bottle of bubbly and duo of creme eggs chilled. The bathroom is large and well equipped with a very fine shower oblong. Other notable additions were a nice LCD TV with freeview, good range of tea/coffee, smart decour (if that's your thing), nice toiletries.

Breakfast was also excellent; plenty of choice, none of which you could argue would be wrong. I had poached egg atop beans on toast for the first morning (note: you get plenty of beans!), and my girlfriend had two boiled eggs with toast (which she quickly sliced into soldiers). Second morning I went for full english, my girlfriend the poached egg with mushrooms and beans. The customary cereals were available, along with a big pot of tea, some fresh fruit salad, and a rack of toast. Cannot be faulted, especially when coupled with the aforementioned view.

A quiet night sleep on both nights was greatfully received - the situation of roughly 15-20 mins walk from the town centre meaning any late night traffic or drinkers was not an issue.

Finally both Dave and Liz offered a warm and accommodating welcome both when we arrived and throughout the stay.
