Quiet area at night. Comfy bed. TV. Tea/coffee in room. 5 min walk into centre of Keswick. Plenty of pubs!
Good full English breakfast or something lighter if you wish.

During our weekend stay in Keswick back in September we were extremely impressed with how welcoming and helpful our B&B hosts were. Gina and Graham went above and beyond to give us recommendations on where to go/ what to eat./ the best places to go hiking, etc.! Truly no need to

Our hosts were amazing. When we arrived they gave us so information. I was silly enough not to have prebooked a 10 lakes tour and they made some calls and sorted one out for us. My in-laws are from China and an example of their attention to detail was that he asked me how to say

Ah! Thank you so much for your great review. It was lovely to meet you and your family. We always try our best to help guests to plan their stay and the tour worked out perfectly for you. Just a pity the weather wasn't a little bit better for you. Hope the rest of your family's stay in the UK went well. Thanks again and hope you get a chance to return. Regards Gina and Graham

Hi Ged, thank you for your message. Graham and I look forward to meeting you. Parking is anywhere on street, with no restrictions are parking charges. If you are struggling to find something when you get here, just let us know and we will sort something for you. Weekends tend to be busy but you will always find somewhere. See you in a couple of weeks. Kind regards Gina and Graham

My parents are coming on 10 september until 13 September what time can they book in on their first day and what time have they to leave on the last day , Their name is Mr and Mrs Fannin thanks Jennifer McCombe
Hi Jennifer, thank you for your message. If your parents arrive before twelve, they are welcome to drop off bags and take the key. If they don't arrive before then, check in is from 4pm. Keswick market square is within 10 minutes walking distance from our house and there are many cafes and it is market day on a Saturday - so plenty to do if you are unsure of your arrival time. You can always call on the day and give an update. If you would like any other information at all, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind regards Gina and Graham

Hi I booked your lovely house for my elderly parents for a few days in September , This was a couple of weeks ago and the payment has not been taken off my credit card .
Thank you for your message. We usually take the payment a few weeks before the stay which is why is hasn't been taken from your card as yet. What are the name of your parents and when in September are they staying? We look forward to meeting them. Kind regards Gina and Graham
