We've just spent a long weekend in the Lake District and had the good fortune to stay at Pitcairn House. Steve and Heather provided a lovely weekend and nothing was too much trouble, from a cup of tea and a biscuit on arrival to the fantastic locally sourced bacon for breakfast. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Steve and Heather were able to give us advice on places to eat in the evening from personal experience and that of previous guests and with the guest house being situated less than 5 minutes walk from the town centre, nowhere was very far away.
We stayed in Room 3 which is a double room providing fantastic views of the mountains. Our initial thoughts that the room lacked storage space quickly dispersed as there is ample space under the bed for bags, rucksacks, etc plus a wardrobe and drawers, so no problems there. Thankfully we didn't need to use it but we were reassured to know that there was a drying room in case the Lake District weather had been more inclement. Thanks for a lovely stay and if we're ever in Keswick again needing B&B Pitcairn will be top of our list.
