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.

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.

Had a lovely stay, the owner was lovely and very hospitable. Lovely view on both sides of the building (mountains on one side, the babbling brook on the other). We asked advice on where to go out and the owner kindly gave us a map with all his favourite places circled.

After our fantastic stay at the Babbling Brook in December 2014, we booked to stay again in December '15, however flooding in my home town of Hebden Bridge meant we simply had to bunker down and cancel any plans we'd made. Fortunately, Paul, the friendliest and most accommodating host you could wish for, allowed us to postpone our trip for...
