Lovely, welcoming guesthouse. Very friendly and comfortable. Good to come back to after a long day's trekking!! Keith and Sally couldn't have been more helpful. Easy walk into town for well-earned dinner at the end of the day.

We've just had a weekend walking break in Keswick. Four blokes (reasonable mature) well looked after at the excellent Glencoe guest house. An ideal location for walking around the Derwent Water or Ulswater area of the lakes. The Glencoe welcome was warm and friendly, decent rooms and a good breakfast. With just a short walk to the centre of Keswick...
