Very knowledgeable young couple of the area. Very flexible over breakfast time to suit our travelling needs. Clean & friendly, lovely atmosphere. Visited more than once, would recommend. Always managed to park outside, but if not, there is a public car park nearby. ideal for exploring the lakes , or just a break in Keswick.
