Not only is this a great B&B with alot of nice touches thrown in, but Keswick is truly a wonderful place to base your visit to the Lake District. Out of all the places we stayed at on our 17-day trip of Britain, both my wife and I liked Keswick the best.
We arrived rather late in the day, tired after a long drive from Ironbridge. David and Karen made us feel at home right away. We got some good recommendations on places to eat and activities to do in the area.
Our two nights here were truly a wonderful experience. The room was large, clean and well furnished. Breakfast was a real treat because of the expanded choice of items over the traditional English breakfast. My wife and I both loved the homeade granola.
We were lucky that on both days the weather was sunny and spectacular. On the advice of David, we did a hike up to the top of Skiddaw. The trip took about 5 hours up and back and the views were gorgeous.
I just want to end my review by saying that a particular host or hostess can make or break a B&B. David and Karen were one of the best that we encountered on our trip. They go out of there way to make your stay a pleasant one and seem to truly enjoy what they are doing.
