This was just one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed in. It ticked all the boxes - clean and comfortable rooms, very pleasant and friendly hosts, an excellent range of breakfast choices and they do packed lunches too. It is the sort of place where, arriving looking like a drowned rat - as I did - there is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our guest house. We realise that you must have finished your bike ride and we hope there was a crowd to welcome you with a bottle of Fizz. Happy Birthday for Wednesday just gone. All the best. More

The worst experience of our life. We booked this B&B as it claimed to be 'doggy friendly'. We have a little brown and white Jack Russell who is very well behaved and DOES NOT go on the furniture. We had a first nights stay (with doggy safely in his basket), went out for the next day for a lovely walk... More

In response: I did not shout and I was not rude though I may have been a little alarmed to have to have chased your dog out of the room next door as you did not have him under control. I may also have been annoyed to find dog hairs on a throw that indicated to me that the dog... More

Pleasant stay at Lynwood for 5 nights last week (mid July). Thought we had booked room 6 online but given room 2 on arrival which was fine for us - upgrade to superking bed and actually less stairs lol! Decent size room with partial view of the fells (when it wasn't foggy or raining). Breakfast was really lovely - total... More

We spent the weekend in Keswick for my birthday mostly to enjoy the annual beer festival on the Friday night but the Guesthouse is also perfect for walks and access to the towns amenities. The Guesthouse is in a prime location near Keswick so that it is an enjoyable walk out of the town centre where it is quiet for... More

The accommodation was perfect clean comfortable and very friendly. The fantastic breakfast set us up for some freak hikes. The location is great for either walking into town or to the lake or some trails to some peaks. Will definitely stay here on my next visit to the Lake District.

Booked in for the wk starting 8/4/16, left after two nights, bathroom ceiling covered in mound, skirting missing also, supposed to be a double room- two singles pushed together with a double mattress on ! place looked like it had been hit by a bomb upon entry , avoid this place like the plague

As can be seen by our late reply what little note we take of trip advisor. Bathroom mould has been dealt with. Skirting board missing = about 6 inches at the most where the room has been altered to make the room bigger. New skirting needs to be sourced to match the original Victorian style. Do you really think I... More

We have recently returned from our weekend stay at the Lynwood, and it didn't disappoint. This was our second stay and it has only got better. We took our 6 month old cocker spaniel along this time and he was made just as welcome. The breakfast is fantastic, with in my opinion the best variation in Keswick, although this time... More
