Beautiful surroundings overlooking the river, with plenty of shops and places to eat. All about 5 minutes walk from the B & B. The room was spotless and to top it off a perfectly cooked full English breakfast. What more could a girl ask for. Friendly owners (Paul and Carol), not forgetting their gorgeous dog Roxy. I will definitely return...

Nothing bad to say about Babbling Brook, I would definitely return ! The location is great , the room overlooked the river and park and it's only a 5 minute walk into the centre - which has everything you need. The owners are very welcoming and accommodating, I couldn't fault their hospitality. I particularly enjoyed the full English breakfast which...

Arrived late as a walk-in. Great reception, perfect room and a very affordable price. Bed superb, everywhere spotless, breakfast ideal and a friendly host. Recommended as an ideal B&B within easy walking distance of town centre.

Stayed just for one night. Turned up early at 11 and asked if we could drop our bags off as check in wasn't until 2pm. However our room was already ready and the guest house owner was very knowledgeable and gave great recommendations for food and drinks. We hadn't realised breakfast was included in the price so that was a...

Lovely one night stay on a quick weekend getaway to the Lakes. The property is a very a short walk (maybe 5 minutes) into Keswick, which is very convenient, although the on-street parking can be a bit tricky. Breakfast was excellent, and the room itself was tidy, warm, and full of character due to the old wood beams lining the...

Stayed here with my wife for a night, really impressed with the place. The owner was lovely and helpful, recommended a nice Chinese restaurant for our dinner. The room was a good size and everything we needed. The shared bathroom was clean and tidy (and as the room next door was unoccupied, we didn't even have to share!) Full breakfast...

Absolutely lovely, quaint place. Very central to Keswick town centre. Lovely friendly & helpful staff. Spotlessly clean & good breakfast. On the road parking which was free. We'll definitely stay here again.

Should have taken the ensuite as I don't like sharing bathrooms my mistake. Paul the host was really a sport, enjoyed the breakfast, good night's sleep and a quick walkabout more time to explore the great outdoors here
