We'd booked this B&B for a Keswick weekend away before Christmas, and were aware it had likely been hit by the floods. Paul rang me before we left to explain there would be no dining room or breakfast available and asked if we still wanted to come. We did and declined his offer of a discount. Had the top room,...

We stayed just one night and booked very last minute. I called before booking online to confirm that we could arrive late and he kindly offered us a discount as we didn't want the breakfast included. In the morning he then offered to cook for us anyway which we declined as we were in a rush. He left the keys...

Stopped here for a night before catching train to London. Lovely guesthouse with super friendly host. Great location with a view! Be sure to find the river walk to town just across the road. It's both quiet and lovely.

Nice small guesthouse in Keswick. The owner was very friendly and had stories to share with us whilst we were there. The room itself was quote good, only downside being we had to share a bathroom between 3 of us. But other than that, everything was pleasant and the breakfast was also very good. The view from my bedroom was...

This guesthouse was a lovely little place clean room the only thing about the room was we had to share a bathroom and wasn't an en suite but this was explained before the visit due to the recent floods.

Two minutes walk from Keswick high street, with a wonderful view of the mountains. Our room was on the second floor, very roomy and clean, everything in pristine condition, everything looked new and fresh. We had to leave very early, and the host was very accommodating, left us milk, bread, juice, etc. out for us to have breakfast. It is...

We stayed here on the first night of our coast to coast trip and it was fantastic. Really friendly welcome, and accommodating with storage for our bikes. The room was great - very clean, spacious and well presented. Initial reservations about our room having a shared bathroom (en suites are available) were unnecessary as it worked perfectly. The Guesthouse is...

With Keswick being the last and unplanned destination on our 1 week tour of northern England and Scotland, we had no expectations for this place. I warned my Australian boyfriend that the cheap BnB that I'd booked could be quite basic. However, we were both pleasantly shocked. We were welcomed by a lovely Geordie man who showed us straight up...
