Keith and Sally were inviting, gregarious, and knowledgeable hosts, directing us to top food spots and hiking areas during our time in Keswick. The breakfast was excellent - I had the vegetarian Cumbrian and my dad had the kippers. The accommodation was top-notch as well!

Many thanks for the kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon. Parking spaces can be at a premium on occasion, but we always ask guests if they encounter a parking problem to let us know as we can move our car for the guests and we can find another space....

I stayed here in May whilst doing a challenge in the area. The couple were friendly and helpful. The homemade cake on offer was superb. I loved staying there. Clean friendly. Accommodated me when I arrived early and my room was not ready. Cannot fault it.

Visiting family in Keswick just past New Year and needed a place to stay for just one night. Usually over this time of year B&Bs say you need to stay for a minimum of 2 nights but Glencoe welcomed us with open arms. Keith and Sally where welcoming from the moment they opened their door. Asked us our names, remembered...

Stayed here for the second time over the Christmas period and again I can't fault the superb welcome and hospitality that Keith & Sally provide. There was fresh cake on arrival, the accommodation was clean, tidy and decorated to the highest standard and the breakfast was knockout. The value for money is superb. Highly recommended and I will look forward...

I had to make a flying visit to Keswick and had the joy of staying at this lovely guesthouse. Home made cakes are available daily in exchange for a donation to the local mountain rescue.

A great choice for a midweek three night stay. Keith was very welcoming and is full of guidance to help you plan your walks, bike rides, eating, drinking or just about any other thing you want to do. Rooms were clean, well maintained and comfortable. I needed the alarm on two mornings after long days out in the hills. Parking...

We are pleased you had a good stay and a good few days in the hills. After a good day exercising plenty of tea and cake with a warm comfy room, good nights sleep and breakfast is required to rest and refuel. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Best wishes Keith & Sally
