“Brilliant Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Just stayed at Parkfield in Keswick having had a great time . We have stayed there several times and we are never disappointed. John and Susan are are so welcomeing and very helpful. The guest house is beautifully decorated by John himself and the final touches by Susan are impeccable.Breakfast is first class and plenty to choose from. Bedrooms at the front have fantastic views . We have stayed in many of the rooms and have never found fault with any of them. There is parking at the back and John will help you park up. Parkfield is situated right in the centre of Keswick where there are many walks shops eating and drinking places. This guest house is a credit to them at what they have achieved and we will be returning very soon as we know we will have a warm welcome and an excellent time staying with John and Susan.

Having been to Keswick on multiple occassions, i can surely say that Parkfield is the best on offer. We were welcomed by John and Susan and a fresh pot of coffee after John had kindly parked our car. Maps and walking books were on offer in the lounge helping us decide on a plan of action and they were more than happy to help us with a walking route.
Both our room and my parents room were good sizes, clean with tea and coffee and a huge tv to relax in front of at the end of a long day hiking. Breakfast was fantastically cooked by Susan with lots on offer and certainly set us up for the day.
You can't get any closer to Derwent Water than Parkfield and is seconds away from the shops and restuarants which is great after a few drinks in the evening.
We couldn't have wished for a better few days and hope to be at Parkfield soon.
Thanks again John and Susan.

We have stayed at parkfield on a number of occasions over the years and would rate this guest house as first class. John and Sue always make our stay in the Lakes memorable even when the weather is foul.
We have just returned from a lovely weekend stay with them and wish we could have stayed longer. Looking forward to our next visit. What more can I say.

Room Tip: All the rooms are first rate. the rooms at the front have a fabulous view.

We have just returned from our second stay at Parkfield Guest House and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our visit. The hospitality of the hosts John and Susan is second to none; going out of their way to make our stay special. It is the personal touches which make all the difference, such as helping with luggage, parking our car, remembering all our names and making restaurant bookings for our evening meals. The rooms are immaculately presented and are a warm and cosy haven to return to at the end of the day. We stayed in the double suite at the front of the house with amazing views out of the window over Crow Park and the distant snow topped mountains and our two sons (17 and 21) shared the twin suite. Both are highly recommended! With an excellent location to boot, what more could you ask for? Don't hesitate to book this little gem, you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Large front facing double suite, Room 3, is excellent and the very spacious twin bedded suite Room 4...

Just had our first visit to the parkfield guest house last week-end, but it won't be our last. Such a comfortable house and friendly hosts, we felt welcome from the minute we arrived. Lovely spacious bedroom with great views. Parkfield is in such a good location for everything we wanted to do, and parking was an added bonus.

Room Tip: Room 7 has beautiful open views over golf course to hills beyond

We spent two nights at this B&B. John, the owner, unloads your luggage and parks your car for you in the private carpark at the back of the house. He offers to carry your luggage up to your room (which we declined because we wanted to stay in shape!) The home is well cared for and the room was very nice. It was spacious and had several chairs so you didn't have to sit on the bed if you wanted to rest. The mattress was comfortable. The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels, soaps, etc. Cooked breakfast was available daily as were cereals, fresh fruits, juices, yogurt, etc.

John was great at offering information you would need such as how to walk into town, etc. He also was happy to help you decide how to spend your free time. We think this is a geat place and would definitely stay again should we be in the area. It is a 2 minute walk from the lake - where you will find the Theatre by the Lake as well as the boat which can take you to many trailheads.

We have just returned from our latest stay at the Parkfield having been regular guests over the years and cannot recommend it highly enough. John and Sue are the perfect hosts, making all their guests feel very welcome. They are also really helpful whenever any advice or suggestions are needed. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the Parkfield is in a perfect location, quiet but right in the centre of Keswick, with all its amenities close by. Breakfast is excellent, with a choice of fruit juice, cereals, fruit and yoghurts plus a full cooked English breakfast, tea/coffee and toast. We always have a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay whenever we visit the Parkfield and hope to return soon. Thanks John and Sue for a wonderful stay as always.
