Stayed here for 2 nights in September 2015. We wanted a comfy bed and a decent breakfast close to the centre of Keswick for 2 nights. The Babbling Brook had a great location and a great price so we booked it. The location couldn't be better, it's about 1 minute walk to the centre of Keswick. The owner asked if...

This is a wonderful guest house located at the centre of Keswick. They have a very comfortable ensuite bedroom to relax after a long hike. The couple running the guest house were very flexible and prepared an excellent vegan breakfast for me with soya milk.

We had a couple of nights here early September. This is the kind of B&B we really appreciate. The landlord is genial, helpful and didn't seem like the kind of man to overstep his remit. He did a couple of really nice breakfasts, told us what we needed to know and left us to our own devices. The room (kingsize)...

We were 5 people staying in 3 rooms in Babbling Brook. We paid £65 for the rooms with en-suite and £60 for a room with no bathroom. Bathroom was close to the room, very tidy and never had to queue. Babbling Brook is a really short walk to town and a nice quiet street next to the river. Amazing views...

Great friendly clean basic accommodation. All you need. We had a twin bedded room on the second floor. Shared shower room that was the only draw back. But we realised that as we booked and we're grateful to find somewhere that allows just one night And prices reasonable. near the main road so we did have traffic noise and had...

He goes the extra mile to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. Room was spacious, clean, stylish and overlooked the mountains. Breakfast was cooked to perfection. Its...

My partner and I stayed here for one night as we were going to do the Via Ferrata the next day in Honister and wanted to stay in Keswick. The townis beautiful and Babbling Brook is literally just down the road from the centre. We had no problem walking into the town on the first night so we could have...

Smallish rooms but great for our C2C journeying, shower brilliant. Our room overlooked the main road from 2 windows, would have preferred to have a half height net so we could have some privacy and leave the curtains open in daylight. Breakfast cereal choices a little limited when we were there, cooked breakfast choices great and tasted fabulous. Make your...

We spent one night here on our way down from Scotland. Very centrally located for walking into town and seeing the sites. The rooms are clean and fresh and the breakfast was fantastic. We had room 1 which has views of the brook. Paul was great - very friendly, welcoming and helpful with what to see in the area with...
