“Cannot fault, amazing guest house”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Been a few times now and each time made so welcome by john and Susan. So spotlessly clean, breakfast excellent and nothing too much trouble. The hotel so central to Keswick and has advantage of parking which us a bonus. Looking so forward to next visit.

Back from our third visit to Parkfield and once again we can't recommend it highly enough. John & Susan continue to be the perfect hosts, nothing is too much for them, from making us a last minute flask of tea before our walk to sorting out our car so we could get straight away on Sunday morning. With lovely views from our king size room right at the front, the location is great and parking is an excellent bonus. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice too & hubby especially enjoyed the dry cured bacon! We'll be back soon.

This is the best B&B experience I have ever had. A friend and I were in the twin room on the first floor (that's the second floor for Americans) for four nights, and spent most of our days hiking in various Lake District locations. The location of Parkfield is perfect, the room lovely, the breakfast exceptional (the pre-breakfast buffet's freshly cut fruit salad along with yogurt selection and granola was a great start to my day), and Susan and John simply could not have been better hosts! Their tips on restaurants & the theatre, their help with manuvering our car in and out of the carpark (which in itself is unusual in Keswick), and their offers to loan us maps all made for a wonderful holiday. I only fear they will become so popular that they won't have any availability the next time I go!

We have just stayed with John & Susan for 3 nights in the double bedroom, it was very comfortable, clean and warm. Yet again the welcome was warm and friendly . Nothing is to much , they go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable.

Just spent the weekend walking with friends staying at this home from home. John & Sua are second to none as hosts. The place is spotlessly clean and located 2 minutes walk from shops, pubs and restaurants. Cannot recommend it highly enough!

Judging by the existing reviews, it's all been said. Idyllic location, 5 mins from beautiful Keswick, 5 mins from The Queen of the Lakes (Derwentwater), even less to the Theatre by the Lake. There are many good walks right from the door, and you're just a short drive (or bus) from Borrowdale, the most picturesque valley in the lakes, and many other beauty spots. The rooms at Parkfield are to an excellent standard and are absolutely spotless. Also, breakfast is an experience, lovely room great choice, fruit, cereal, cooked, toast, all fresh and cooked to perfection. Then there's John and Sue, what can I say, a nicer, more genuine couple you couldn't wish to meet, as has already been said, nothing's too much trouble.Lastly, there's the free parking, a real bonus. All in all, UNBEATABLE & highly recommended Thanks John and Sue, see you in July. Garth & Sheila.

Just returned home from a lovely stay at Parkfields in Keswick and myself and my boyfriend couldn't have had a better time. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by the lovely hosts Susan and John and straight away they made us feel very comfortable and relaxed in their beautiful, clean and very modern B&B. The frontview of the Guesthouse instantly took our breath away, it was stunning. Susan and John were most helpful and had booked our meals for the duration of our stay for us, which was really nice of them to do so. They have been brilliant with us. The Guesthouse is in a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk to the centre of Keswick. We will be making another visit soon to Parkfields when we next visit the Lake District and look forward to seeing Susan, John and Teddy again. xxx

Thankyou very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review for us , it's very pleasing for us to know that you felt that our guest house was very comfortable and that you liked our contemporary style as well .
The front view from the guest house is stunning you are quite right , all our guests comment on it and it is ever changing with the seasons and the weather ! So it is always different and beautiful .
We are glad you found that we are in such a great central location so no need to use the car for all the local walks and restaurants theatre etc .
We are always happy to help guests to choose places to eat and it's no trouble at all to book for them to guarantee a table .
We hope to see you both again really soon ,
Thanks again for the review susan
