Stayed at this b&b for 2 nights in Sept last year. Had a lovely modern room in the annexe, the bathroom was particularly lovely and the huge shower was gorgeous. The owners were very friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. The breakfasts were delicious too! I can't remember exactly how much our 2 night stay cost us, however, I do...

A group of us from the age of 18 to 50 stayed at the Ferndene guest house in Keswick, for a weekend in April, to celebrate two 50th birthdays. We found that this was one of the closest to the town within easy walking distance which took only a few minutes, and was also one of the cheapest, yet still...

This B&B is just a 5 minute stroll from the Moot Hall and situated in a quieter part of town. Both Christine and Richard were both approachable and helpful in any query or request put to them. This made for a relaxing break. The room we had was on the small side but never-the-less was well maintained and served our...

My daughter and I had the privilege of traveling to England last summer. It's been a lifelong dream to visit the Lake District and so when the airline tickets had been purchased, I began researching where we should stay when we traveled north of London. We selected Keswick as the village we would stay in and then I began looking...

We pride ourselves in running a relaxed and friendly guest house where we do everything we can to accommodate our guests and hopefully our other reviews indicate that this is indeed the case. All that we require from our guests in return is a minimum of common sense and consideration, particularly regarding parking. We have a parking space available for...

This is a lovely B&B with a beautiful aspect over Keswick. On arrival Christine made sure we were safely parked and explained general bits to us.
