Another lovely stay with Steve and Heather we received a friendly, warm welcome when we arrived and the whole stay we were made to feel at home. The rooms are very comfortable, modern and clean with lovely views and the breakfast is very tasty. We will be returning for another stay and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Keswick.
