Superb welcome, fabulous Guest House. Lovely room with views across the countryside, the lake and to the hills. Breakfast was lovely and we had dinner at a local pub, The Pheasant Inn. The food here is excellent. A very warm welcome, especially from the log burning fire! It's a 5 minute walk, but very dark coming back, but no problem...

This property is quite warn out. The bed was old and hard, shower was broken, room was very small and of poor quality. Breakfast was of minimum quality. It is just not the kind of place I would stay again or recommend.

Very friendly house, with lovely room facilities. Stayed in the family triple room, which was very spacious. Easy and quick access to Keswick by car and in a beautiful setting for walking. The breakfast was amazing particularly for aching muscle mornings.
