“Could not fault this place”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Me, my boyfriend and our 2 dogs stayed for a weekend in June. We had such a fantastic experience in this beautiful B'N'B. Wayne and Alison were so welcoming and were a pleasure to talk to. If you need any information about trips or the local area Wayne is like an encylopedia of the area. Honestly, just ask him anything. We were given a small room but bless Wayne couldnt be sorry enough for not being able to accomodate us in a larger room, but the woom we had was perfect for what we needed it for! Breakfast was amazing and there was plenty of food!! if i was to come again i would definately stay here and i would recommend this lovely little place for all who came to visit.
Thanks Wayne and Alison!!!

Room Tip: choose a room at the back of the house for amazing views of the mountains

My wife & I have been staying at Cragside for nine years in a trot now for our May/June pilgrimage to Keswick from Scotland. I suppose that says it all really. Alison & Wayne are very friendly & run a lovely wee neat & tidy B&B. The breakfast is plentiful & always sets us up for a good days walking. Believe me... you won't be disappointed if you choose to stay at Cragside.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

We went as a couple on 13th April for a week. Alison and Wayne are a friendly helpful couple and Waynes particular local knowledge is excellent and gave us some good tips and loaned us maps.
Breakfast was good and plenty of it. The whole place is extremely clean and comfortable.
Parking was easy, you can always find a space pretty much outside or directly opposite.
Would certainly be happy to recommend and we will always use Cragside when we visit Cumbria.
Thank you Alison and Wayne.

Room Tip: We had the one at the rear, overlooked a few houses with a view of Skiddaw.

Cragside was a fantastic find for My wife and I. Everything was first class, from the breakfasts to the room. We had a huge 'Flexible' en-suite room, which had a super kingsize bed in it and a single bed, The room in our case was used as a kingsize double, but could have been used as a twin, or even a family room. The en-suite had a great shower and was very clean. The breakfast choice was great and the quality of the food excellent. The location is no more than a five minute walk to Keswick market square and there are no parking issues.
The owners Wayne and Alison run a first class B&B and we will be back when in the Lake District again.

My second stay and faultless as ever. Wayne and Alison can not do enough to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Great room and delicious breakfast to start the day. Location is great too, just 5 minutes walk from the town centre and ample on street parking is easily found. I'll be back again.

Room Tip: The double room on the top floor has magnificent views towards Skiddaw. The family room at the front...

This was our second visit to cragside, we first stayed in late 2011 and decided to return as a treat in 2013, we were just as delighted the second time around, the room rates are very reasonable and the relaxed friendly atmosphere that the owners create adds to the comfort of this lovely little b and b! Breakfasts are filling and tasty, you can pick and choose your own combination and the portions keep you going for a good five hour hike! Rooms are cosy,warm and extremely clean with views that are a delight to see. we would recommend this gem in Keswick to all !

A very clean and well organised b&b. Breakfast was enormous that you did you allday. No need for lunch ! A very clean and professionally run establishment, with the needs of the guests given a high priority. Bedroom was a bit small, but offered an amazing view of Skiddaw, with its top covered in snow. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay.
