The room was absolutely tiny, with the smallest en-suite I've ever seen (or tried to get into). The owners were very friendly and helpful, however, and the cleanliness was excellent. I think I would have preferred to have shared a normal-sized bathroom with other guests rather than trying to squeeze into a cupboard to try to brush my teeth etc.

Good central location, easy walking distance from town. But far enough away to be quiet on the evening. Very well appointed rooms with some lovely touches. Fantastic traditional breakfast, great hosts Paul and Ann, very accommodating for hill walkers.

Spent three nights here, greeted by Anne and Paul with a very warm welcome. We were shown to our room which had lovely decor and amenities and very comfortable. Breakfast was the best we have had, as we have stayed in many b&b's but this was a cut above the rest. Anne and Paul were very informative about the local...

Some friends and I have just had a very pleasant stay in The Rowan Tree. Clean, tidy and nicely decorated with very comfy beds. Very handy for an evening stroll into Keswick center to eat. Fantastic breakfasts, they kept me going all day. Lovely hosts, I left something behind and they very kindly posted it on to me.

We recently stayed at The Rowan Tree Guest House for a family weekend away. 5 stars just isn't enough to rate our stay. The place is beautifully decorated, and very very clean. Anne and Paul are lovely, genuine people, and their attention to detail makes them the perfect hosts. Ideally situated within a short walk from the centre of town,...
