We have stayed here on and off for the last 8 years and have to say we wouldn't stay anywhere else by chose if staying in the Keswick area. Andrew and Helen run a fabulous B&B of an extremely high standard and always make you feel extremely welcome. The house is immaculate throughout and the owners are an absolute delight...

Lovely b&b. Very reasonably priced, short walk into the centre of Keswick, room was very nice and more importantly very clean! Bed was comfortable and the pillows were plumper than my own at home! The shower was very powerful which was a nice change! Breakfast was lovely and served promptly each day, with a good selection to choose from also....

Two nights stayover in a charming B&B with all the attributes of a small guest house located in a scenic rural environment at Portinscale. Very hospitable hosts. A generous breakfast was also a highlight of our visit. Additional meals can be located at a nearby pub (walking distance) or at the recommended Pheasant Inn (short drive away). Thoroughly recommended!

I chose Powe House based on reviews location and price and wasn't disappointed. The hosts are lovely people who always had time to talk and give advise on the area. You wouldn't even know they had two young kids they were that quiet. I booked a single room (4) with its own ensuite wet room. Fantastic use of space. Comfortable...

We had a beautiful room on the ground floor which had a window out into the very nice garden and a view of Skiddaw. A Tassimo in the room was a nice touch. Fantastic bathroom, the power shower was great for the end of a really long day. A hearty breakfast that I could have every day, top notch! If...

We had originally booked 2 nights in the B&B, but we liked it so much we ended up staying a third night! The owners were fantastic and certainly added to the B&B. The rooms themselves were brilliant. Large, comfy bed, and the shower was powerful enough to remove all the dirt from a long day in the hills! The local...

The ideal B&B for visiting the lakes. Located in a lovely quiet village, just a walk away from Keswick, 2 minutes from a pub and in beautiful surroundings. The rooms are spotless, the service top notch and the breakfast in the morning was fresh and enough food to get you through a day of hill walking! I will hopefully visit...

The room was nice and the bathroom was a good size with a shower over the bath rather than just a shower cubicle. Good amount of storage space. The property is well located for walks all over the North Lakes as within about 1 min drive you are on the main road so very limited faff involved with getting out...
