We have just stayed on our 4th visit with Helen and Andrew. It is the most peaceful little spot. Every attention to detail makes your stay comfortable, and relaxing. The accommodation is modern, bright, pleasant and clean. Breakfast is the main event! Wonderful Full English. All served on bone china plates and teaset. Useful, filling and good value pack lunch great for the hungry hill walker. Very central for Keswick. On main bus line. Nearby Farmer's Arms great for Pub grub and good Sunday Quiz night.

Room Tip: All rooms are very pleasant.

We just loved our last stay at the Powe House. Coming all the way from California, you do not want to not have a great experience. That is why we booked our next visit to the beauty of the Lake Country at the Powe House. Andrew and Helen are superb hosts! They are both friendly and engaging and able to handle a spot of humor. The breakfasts are full English with lots to choose from. I looked forward every morning to stuffing myself for the day with taste treats. The rooms are comfortable and well kept with nice bathrooms. The house is well situated not to far from the main road but far enough away to eliminate the highway sounds. We had excellent hiking trails near the house. The inn is also close to many good places for dinner. We loved our time there and look forward to this next visit!

Room Tip: Front rooms overlook the road and hills. Back rooms overlook large back yard and woods.

Just returned from a fabulous stay at this remarkable guesthouse. Not only is it spotlessly clean, but stylishly decorated with wonderful comfy beds and blasting power showers. If you're after a peaceful stay within walking distance of everything you'll ever need , look no further this is your place. Breakfast lovely and plentiful, served by attentive but not in your face Andrew, while Helen cracks on in the kitchen producing a hearty feast to set you up for a day on the fells. Powe House deserves all the great reviews it has. Well done!

Just had a fantastic week walking up in the lakes, which was made even better by the fine accomdation I selected, Andrew and Helen have really done a wonderful job in restoring this lovely house,I stayed in a single room which was small but very comfy and had everything in it you could wish for, tv+dvd,nice powerful shower and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was very good every morning and although for some of the week I was the only guest everything was provided for as if they had been fully occupied.
The other facility which was provided that turned out to be a life saver was the drying room and after getting completely soaked on a couple of occasions Andrew kindly took my wet things and gave me them back dry in the morning.
Its short 15 minute walk into Keswick and even on a cold night was no real distance, best bit was that if you didnt fancy it you could just walk the 75 yards to the farmers arms where they sell reasonable food and decent beer and with the loyalty card that Andrew provided me with made it affordable too.
I would recommend The Powe House to anyone and will now be using it as my base camp until I complete climbing the surrounding fells.

Just come back from two nights stay at Powe House. On arrival the owners made us feel very welcome, we couldn't fault the rooms, they were really clean, lovely comfortable bed and the shower was fantastic. Breakfast was delicious, great choice of cooked food to set you up for a days walking. Keswick is just a five minute drive away for good choice of places to eat. Would highly recommend and will definitly stay here again.
