Maple Bank Country Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We enjoyed a great weekend at Maple Bank to celebrate a birthday. Having the run of the whole house was ideal as there were 13 of us (plus 'Lucky' the dog) we were able to relax and do everything at our own pace. Rhona and Tommy were perfect hosts (very helpful and welcoming but not over the top) being next door they were on hand (if needed). The views were brilliant. We did a bit of walking (Catbells and from the visitors centre at Whinlatter). I'd recommend Maple Bank and will certainly stay again next visit to Braithwaite.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a great review for us.
It's always helpful to know, how our Guests feel about their stay, especially the comment
that we are 'not over the top'. Trying to find the right balance of being helpful and just letting people get on with there holiday can sometimes be a bit tricky!
We look forward to seeing you again next time your in Braithwaite.

We stayed at Maple Bank for a long weekend. It was an ideal place for exploring the Lake District. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We and our dog were made very welcome. We can thoroughly recommend.

A good welcome from Tommy & Rhona, when we arrived after a typical soggy drive across the lake district. Good parking facilities, Room was tidy, comfortable and warm. Location is within easy reach of Keswick. Breakfast was a delight! The trip was a little while back but we remember the beautiful scenery and the location was within easy reach of places to eat and socialise.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front and top have the best views!

We have stayed at the Maple Bank on several occasions and feel part of the family now. Rhona and Tommy are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble especially when getting pestered by my 3 children for their attention (ages 3, 8 and 11). Wonderful breakfast which set us up the days adventures. Rooms and views fabulous. Looking forward to our next stay there very soon.

Great place for a break in the lakes you will not be disappointed.

Not long returned from another stay at Maple Bank and we've had great time! Beautiful breakfasts, beautiful rooms, beautiful scenery and fantastic hosts. My daughter enjoyed going up the garden to collect the eggs for breakfast with Tommy, can't get much fresher produce than that!
Great parking facilities, had a fantastic meal in the Ivy House Hotel. Maple Bank is a great location, only 2 miles outside Keswick and right on the fells. Planning our next visit for May :-) Thanks again Tommy & Rhona, another fab stay :-)
