Welcoming and helpful hosts who knew the area well; big, comfortable beds; really good breakfasts for vegetarians and others; clean rooms looking out onto hills and church; close to the town centre and theatre. Highly recommended.

First trip to Keswick and Cumbria House and will no doubt be back again! Good room spotlessly clean, view out of the window was fantastic, parking was easy, breakfast was very lovingly home cooked and the location is perfect; two minutes walk straight into the town centre for shops/pubs etc. Mountains in easy walking distance (Skiddaw) or lots of places...

Cumbria House has been my go to Keswick guest house for a few years now and since Ruth & James took over in early 2015 it has gone from strength to strength.

This is our 4th stay at Cumbria House, Ruth and James are wonderful host. Rooms are exceptional clean and breakfast to die for. They supplied us with access to a fridge and microwave for our dietary needs. Nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Ruth and James see you again 'God willing' in October

Great B&B close to centre. Very friendly hosts. Spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast menu good and well cooked. Helpful parking on site. Overall an excellent find and I would not hesitate to return. (Also very much like the art on the walls, not that that's relevant to the review!)

Very clean and comfortable, lots of light (no chintz!), close to town centre, with a large choice of breakfasts, and private parking. Also a lounge with a handy fridge, plus a drying room for your climbing gear. Owners James and Ruth are lovely people. Good views over the church opposite and to the hills beyond. Will stay again!

I received a great welcome! I had a very pleasant single room looking over the church and distant views. Comfortable bed and good breakfast choice. The reception hall and lounge had a 'Home from Home' feel. A great location! I would definitely come again and recommend to family and friends!
