We had booked a long weekend and traveled to the Guest House on a Friday! First big mistake, so we kept updating Stuart and Catherine on our progress. After finally making it all the way there we were exhausted and shattered, Stuart gave us a quick walk through of the essentials and then decided we looked like we needed tea...

Stayed here for 3 nights Easter break. Amazing location, quiet and very close to marina and cats bell. View from our room was awesome, looking over derentwater, ask for Room 1 while you are booking to get the view. Stuart and Catherine have done great job in creating right environments and ambiance which makes you feel welcomed and relaxed. Handmade...

Very much enjoyed my two night stay. The accommodation was very clean, breakfast choice and quality is very good. My only disappointment was not staying for longer. Although the walk into Keswick only takes 10-15 minutes, returning at night when dark, and raining, is not ideal. However, when there is a clear night sky, well worth it.

Just spent a lovely weekend at Lake View on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Catherine and Stuart were most welcoming, our room was very comfortable and clean, the homemade biscuits and preserves went down a treat .... and the breakfasts were fabulous. The other four guests were lovely and we all chatted away at the large...

We spent several nights here in early July. Awesome breakfasts each and every morning. We loved the short walk to Keswick. Stuart provided us with a lot of interesting information about the area. Would definitely return.

As others have said in their reviews it isn't just the location of the Lake View that grabs you but the way in which you are welcomed by Catherine and Stuart into their home. Arrived Wednesday and we were that day's only guests, super welcome and once unpacked were treated to coffee and homemade drizzle cake in front of the...

Stayed for a weekend break - location is ideal for leaving the car and exploring Keswick. Catherine is a fabulous host - great room with massive en- suite - plentiful breakfast . Tea and cake on arrival , individually wrapped home made biscuits in the room to soak up the raspberry gin. Say no more

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in August, I've been meaning to write a review on our stay because it was just so perfect and Catherine and Stuart made the stay so warming and welcoming. We arrived and got shown our room, we were staying in the front room overlooking the lake. The bed was so big and comfy! Also...

Lake View is one of the best guest houses we have stayed at. The rooms were clean and warm with lovely furnishings. The breakfast was delicious. We have stayed at many hotels and guest houses but Lake View's breakfast was the best. The comfortable and warm lounge was also much appreciated. Catherine and Stuart are a very friendly and caring...

We had a lovely 3 night stay here with Catherine and Stuart. They were the perfect hosts in this beautifully furnished Edwardian house, nothing was too much trouble for them starting with a welcoming drink and cake in the comfortable lounge with the log fire already warming the room. Our tastefully decorated room was on the front of the house...
