We stayed for 4 nights in the Belle and Sebastian room over half term. Can't add anything to the other hundreds of fabulous reviews of Carole and Jed - just perfect! We booked for the same time next year on leaving which says it all 😊

Beautiful B&B in the centre of Keswick. Comfy beds and immaculate bathrooms. Breakfasts and packed lunches are great. What really makes the place stand out is the warmth of the welcome you get from Carol and Ged. I can't wait to return.
