Everything Andrew said was true. The owners are lovely people and our stay was good in every way. Our room was immaculate and well equipped. Breakfast very good. Highly recommend this guest house. We really were treated as guests not customers and the red squirrel was the icing on the cake.

I went with my parents in law. We had a great family holiday . Phil & Joy are great hosts. Breakfast was gorgeous. The place is beautiful and really close to Keswick town centre and other beautiful walks. You need a car though. As a minor point, The shower in both the Garden and the Fairfield room were a bit small for a tall person (over 6 feet and broad shoulders).
Regarding activities, I recommend taking the boat tour around Derwentwater lake.
We had an amazing time.

I have never put on a review before and have stayed in many types of hotel and guest houses in my life but this place was so good I felt it was time I did. This place is wonderful and the hosts Phil & Joy are the most friendly owners I have ever met. Joy sorted us out a great restaurant to eat at despite it being a bank holiday and most places in Keswick being full. The rooms in the guest house are the best we have ever stayed in and the breakfast is to die for. We will definitely be coming back.

A very friendly B & B. The owners made us feel very welcome. Our room and bathroom were immaculate. Breakfasts are cooked to order and are very comprehensive. With only six bedrooms there was no noise. The house is within easy reach of Keswick and we will definitely be staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house would get less noise from the road which runs adjacent to the property.

We have come to the Keswick area for many years and this is the very best place to stay that we have found. The location is great, at the start of many walks (a little way up the hill for a head start!) and a short walk away from Keswick town, making it nice and peaceful. There are red squirrels in the lovely garden. The rooms are great with different themes and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious with lots of choice on offer.
But what makes this B&B even more special is your hosts Phil and Joy. They are so friendly and welcoming. They are extremely thoughtful about their guests' needs and Phil is very knowledgable and helpful with advice for walks and other activities. There's a happy atmosphere. With all of this added to the wonderful Lake District setting you get the perfect holiday!
