“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

In one word - Perfect. Liz and Dave couldn’t be more friendly and accommodating, always going that extra mile to ensure that your stay is as good as it can be. The Guest House itself is immaculate and the views are simply stunning. We stayed in Room 2 which was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast couldn’t be faulted in any way; all produce was fresh and locally sourced and there was a wide menu available - made that bit more special with the signature view from the dining room window. Location is spot on, 15min walk into Keswick or around £3 in a Taxi. Great value for money and I wouldn’t consider any other place to stay in Keswick from now on. Highly recommended. I’m sorry I cannot rate The Lookout higher than ‘Excellent’, you deserve better! Thank you. Rob & Katie.

Recently stayed for one night at The Lookout, wish we could have stayed longer. We've stayed at lots of B&Bs over the years, this one is a cut above others we have stayed at.
The bedroom was spacious, modern and finished to a high standard, it was immaculately clean. The view from the bedroom was superb! The bathroom was huge, again very modern & immaculately clean with a large bath and separate large shower.
Breakfast was made to order with all locally sourced ingredients, it set us up for the day.
Hosts were friendly but not 'in your face' like some B&B owners, they were there to welcome you and then on hand if you should need them.
Free car parking and wi-fi.
Cannot recommend this B&B highly enough and would stay there without hesitation the next time we are in the lakes.

Just returned from a wonderful two night stay. We tried for a third night but they were fully booked which isnt at all surprising given the quality of the establishment. Everything is top notch with lots of attention to detail and nice little touches such as fresh milk in your own mini fridge and a Vidal Sasoo hair drying kit which my wife says was superb. Liz and Dave are wonderful hosts and have mastered that fine balance of being friendly without being 'in your face'. Breakfasts were lovely and Liz's scrambled eggs are the best we have ever tasted. Don't keep trawling through other establishments in Keswick just book in here, you won't be disappointed.

Having stayed at The Lookout twice over the past two years, we will definitely look to stay again. In fact - we have made a booking to stay during this summer! Liz and Dave are brilliant hosts and nothing is ever too much! The service is second to none, the rooms are amazing (We have stayed in room 1 and room 2), the breakfast is scrumptious, there is parking available and the view from room 1 is out of this world! We would fully recommend staying in all three rooms to really experience The Lookout.. Our personal favourite so far is room 1 - simply for the view! We are going to make staying at The Lookout a regular occurrence, so hopefully more reviews to come!

I have just returned from a weekend away at The Lookout and it definitely lived up to our expectations. The B&B is beautiful and has been done to a very high standard. The view from our room (room 3) was absolutely STUNNING!! We arrived in the dark on friday night after a 6 hour journey so could not see the true beauty of the place until the following morning but, wow, it was well worth the wait. Even on a grey morning the view of the hills was breathtaking and I did not get bored of looking at it all weekend. The owners Liz and Dave are also fantastic and very welcoming. They gave us information about good walks for us to go on and even a scenic drive home. The breakfast was also very good. They have cereal, yoghurt, fruit, toast, full english and many other variations (beans on toast, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, poached eggs etc.) on offer as well as fruit juice and tea/coffee. we were so full after breakfast that even after a 10K walk we still didn't fancy lunch so waited until our evening meal before eating again! There are lots of good walk and it is close to the lake. It's about a 10 minute walk into town which was very easy to find and had lots of choices for eating and drinking. We ate at Casa Bella which was also very good. It is also only 5 minutes from a garage where you can buy any supplies you may need. A fantastic place to stay and I will definitely be back.

We enjoyed our third stay at The Lookout in July 2012. We have been for our last three anniversaries and it has been the highlight of our year each time. Everything about The Lookout is perfect... the views, the rooms, the breakfast, the garden (we sit and look out until it's too dark to see anymore) and of course Liz and Dave who are so thoughtful and helpful and have thought of everything!
There are so many lovely touches from the extremely comfortable beds, to the bath house products, even a mini fridge for fresh milk.
It is the cleanest, most comfortable & luxurious place we have ever stayed and nowhere else comes close.
Liz and Dave are really knowledgeable about the area and suggested a couple of walks which were so enjoyable and we never would have discovered them otherwise!
We look forward to our next visit!!!!!!
