Me and my partner decided to stay here at last minute for a short get away to the Lakes. We stayed in the Suite and were very impressed with the rooms. The food was wonderful and the owners of the B&B are so friendly and helpful. They have great knowledge of Keswick and will point you in the right direction....

We stayed between Christmas and New year to attend a wedding nearby. This B&B is excellent and well located. The room large, clean and well appointed (third floor superior), good breakfast and warm hosts. You will not be disappointed to stay here.

we spent two fabulous days in Keswick at the Ferndene at the beginning of December in the Suite high in the house. It was lovely, warm and cosy with plenty of room to sit and have a nightcap in the lovely lounge. No need to close any of the curtains are you are so high up and why shut out...
