“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is simply a brilliant bed and breakfast run by two lovely people. Great location in Keswick; lovely clean, calm and peaceful house; very relaxed and welcoming; massively helpful hosts and a brilliant breakfast. Could not want more! We will be back.

In one word - Perfect. Pam and Arthur couldn’t be more friendly and accommodating, always going that extra mile to ensure that your stay is as perfect as it can be. The Guest House itself is immaculate. Our room was gorgeous - beautifully presented, very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. There were lots of great touches - brilliant welcome tray and Pam's homemade biscuits or scones - very welcome after your journey. Breakfast couldn’t be faulted in any way; there was a wide menu available and everything cooked and presented to perfection (there's that word again!!) Location is spot on, 5min walk into Keswick. Great value for money and we wouldn’t consider any other place to stay in Keswick. Highly recommended. Sorry we cannot rate Seven Oaks higher than ‘Excellent’, you deserve better! Thank you.

We decided at the last minute to book a short break to The Lakes as the weather forecast was favourable. Unlike us who take a lot of trouble deciding where to stay, after a previous disastrous stay in a B & B, we checked out Trip Advisor and Seven Oaks was No 1 in Keswick. We rang up on a Sunday and a room was available for 2 nights, we were a little worried as there was no parking but Pam assured us it would not be a problem, and it wasn't.

We arrived to a lovely warm welcome from Pam, who told us about breakfast, the residents fridge, walks in the area,places to eat,nothing was a problem. I think we had the smallest room but we had everything we needed. The room wes warm, the bedlinen/towels were clean and fresh. M&S toiletries, a hairdryer, tea/coffee and Kit Kats.We were also provided with a home made scone .

The next morning we met Arthur at breakfast, what a lovely man, warm friendly, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was fabulous. Even though there was lots of choice you could still ask for something different and it wasn't a problem. We didn't need lunch either days.Pam and Arthur are so considerate they even rotate your breakfast tabe so everyone has a turn to sit beside the window.

We took Pam's advice and ate out each night at he Dog and Gun and we weren't dissapointed.

On our last day we asked Pam to provide us with a packed lunch and she did this for a small charge.

The only negative, I suppose,was there was no lounge area, but as we went out walking all day it wasn't a problem for us. All in all we had a good time with lovely hosts. We would certainly return

To sum it up in one word, wow! First of all, Pam and Arthur you are fabulous hosts, genuine, extremely helpful and just simply brilliant. This was our first stay in the Lake District and my first stay in a guest house/b&b and let me tell you anywhere we stay in the future (other than Sevenoaks of course) will have some very big boots to fill! We escaped for the weekend (2 nights Fri/Sat), child free to relax after a stressful few months and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We stayed at the top of the house in room 6 and it was just lovely. Immaculately clean, fresh and a great size. The bed was very comfortable and the facilities were perfect. Breakfast was quite possibly the best we've had and I defy anyone to not be able to find something to suit their taste. The choice and quality was second to none and really prepared us for the day ahead. In fact we even skipped lunch both days! The location is ideal and literally a 3 minute walk into the centre where all the restaurants, pubs and shops are but far enough away to be quiet at night. Our room was situated at the front of the house and we had the window open both nights and were still not disturbed! We ate at The Inn (ok really, just pub grub nothing special) and Casa Bella which was lovely although the service a little slow, but it does appear to be one of the more popular eateries and is advisable to book. Pam and Arthur are more than happy to answer any questions and really added the finishing touches to our stay, helping us every which way they could with where to eat, where to go and what to do. Before we left we've even arranged to come back in December with our daughter!
Cannot recommend Sevenoaks enough, thank you!
See you soon
Rebecca & Matt

We must say our busy lives were put on hold for a few days at this lovely Bed and Breakfast.
All the local amenities were just a short stroll away, down the pleasant Keswick streets. Lovely walking too the lake and surrounding areas were just a stones throw away.
It was also a very great value for money break as the frankly superb breakfast left all 3 of us (including a ravenous child) requiring just a very light lunch.
The accommodation was lovely, warm and comfortable and the whole experience was made all the more special by our hosts Pam Arthur and Marianne. We'll be back !

Sometimes you meet people in life that love their job, Pam and Arthur are such people. Nothing was too much trouble. Their home is beautiful and super location. 5 minute walk into Keswick, restaurants, lake etc. Breakfast was the best ever, such a choice. We had a lovely time and cannot wait to return. Many thanks Pam and Arthur for such a lovely welcome. See you soon. Jean and Alan P.S. Alan says thank you for the lovely homemade cake, he forgot to say yesterday.

Lovely welcome from the inviting owners Pam & Arthur to a spotless B&B. Our room was spacious, clean, bright and fully stocked with hair-dryer, kettle etc. Breakfast was amazing with detailed touches and great choices. Location is perfect at only a 3 minute walk into the centre of Keswick, but far enough away to remain tranquil. The hosts are informative, readily imparting advice on where to eat/what to do in the area. There is everything you could ever need in this B&B from walking poles to fresh milk to wine glasses! Will definitely return to this fantastic B&B in the near future!

Hi you two--
Many thanks for your fab feedback ,so pleased you had such a good break with us.You certainly made the best of your time here ,sprinting up the fells and using the local Adventure providers to make the most of what Keswick has to offer. Pity it was too cold to jump in those gorges and pools but it was a very cold Februart day !! Next time !
We look forward to welcoming you back when it is just a bit warmer for your activities.
Take care and best wishes,Arthur and Pam
