Great Location

” Only downside is our stay wasn’t long enough, but we have booked again in August. If you want a high-class B&B, attentive hosts, fantastic breakfast, great location and exceptionally clean then don’t hesitate to book.”

Deb and Dean

“Rebecca and Simon know their business, their house is beautiful, they are there exactly when you need them and rooms and breakfast aside, provide those small touches that set them apart and make them more than value for money.”


“We have stayed in most of the hotels in Keswick however none of them can compare to the care and hospitality that is delivered here. We will 100% be revisiting xx.”
