This was my second visit to the Anchorage in 2 years and I would go back again - in fact I plan to next year. Although I stayed in the small attic single room it was everything I wanted after spending all day out on the fells. The highlight for me was definitely breakfast, very tasty and set me up...

The guest house is perfectly situated - about a 5 minute walk from the town centre and has guest parking which is pretty essential in this area. The room was a nice size, beautifully decorated and everything was provided which we needed. The breakfasts were excellent with good quality ingredients.

As in the title a very clean, tidy and well appointed B&B (right down to the DVD library you choose from to play on the DVD player in the room) with great service from the owners. Breakfast was a real bonus; a good choice of food, from good quality ingredients. Free parking to the rear of the building with enough...

We stayed for two nights and loved every minute! On arrival we found the guesthouse easily from the directions that were supplied when booking. We then found that there was enough parking around the back of the guest house which in Keswick is a great bonus! We were taken to our room which was very modern and very well decorated....

We stayed at the Anchorage with Linda and Andrew this weekend and loved every minute. We went with my older parents who are very fit and active but even if they were less able, the facilities were easily accessible. The bathrooms were spotless and the extras in the rooms were good quality - ie the tea/coffee making facilities. We loved...
