Just spent 3 nights at Avondale Guest House and it was absolutely perfect. Tony and Pearl are very friendly and welcoming and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were superb. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Keswick. We thoroughly recommend Avondale and we will be back and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

We stayed at the Avondale for 2 nights in March. The service was excellent, the room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who were very knowledgeable about the local area. We felt very welcomed. We are planning a return visit, when hopefully it won't rain as much!

The little flasks of fresh milk were one of...
