Catherine and Stewart are the perfect hosts. Catherine's a great cook and we had the best dinner meal ever. No view from this BB but she more than makes up for this with attention to all the little details that make her guests feel welcome and special. Location is also quite convenient and walkable to Keswick town centre.

The fact that I'm writing this review a whole year after our stay says enough already. It'll never be out of mind since everything was absolutely spot on: welcome, breakfast (!!!), views, tranquility and atmosphere were second to None - most definitely my favourite B&B, worth a recommending. Stayed there on our concert tour through the North of England. We... More

We arrived late to a very warm welcome from Stuart and were shown to a beautifully appointed and homely room. We had a fantastic sleep and then went downstairs to a delicious breakfast. We ate our evening meal there on the Saturday night; a great decision as the food was first class and unbelievable value. We really enjoyed our weekend... More

Again Catherine and Stuart come up trumps. This is our third visit to this gorgeous establishment set in Portinscale. This time I brought a couple of friends and they went away pleasantly surprised. You will find it difficult to find such a cosy place with great value and food.

We have just returned from another wonderful weekend at Lake View. As always Stuart and Catherine went to great lengths to make our stay absolutely perfect. It has become an annual event that we and two other couples take all three rooms for what feels like a "private house party". We dined both evenings and all the food was absolutely... More
