It was a great stay. The owners were warm and friendly and the location was excellent.

Lovely staying with Christine and Richard again this weekend. Comfortable accommodation, great hosts, great breakfasts all in all 10/10 again. Chris and Richard even helped us out with getting some cheaper than normal tickets for the Keswick launches, just ask and you will receive. See you both again soon folks.

We stayed here for a few nights for our first anniversary trip and everything was perfect. The location was awesome as it was only a two minute walk into town and ten minutes from the lake. The room we were in was a lovely size. Plenty of space for our luggage and all of the things we ended up buying...

We were lucky enough to bag a last minute room here in the summer holidays. We had a comfortable, cosy, spotlessly clean double room in the annex. Even from booking via telephone the service was outstanding. The couple who run this fantastic b&b take so much pride in their business and this shines through. They were always ready to chat...
