It was the second time we stayed at the Salisbury guesthouse and it couldn't have been more magical! We had a warm welcoming from Peter and Alex and our room was splendid! We stayed in the suite which has a beautiful view on Skidaw, lovely beds, a sofa and a well equiped bathroom. We really enjoyed the breakfast! All products... More

Honestly can't recommend this place enough. Really well located within Keswick, beds comfortable, breakfast delicious, and we were made to feel incredibly welcome and at home.

What a lovely B&B, Peter made us feel so very welcome and his knowledge of The Lakes was outstanding. Breakfast was delicious, room comfort was excellent, close proximity to Keswick such a bonus - will certainly be returning. Big thank you :0)

We had booked to stay at the Salisbury Guesthouse for a couple of nights earlier this week. Due to an emergency at home we had to leave early. Peter the owner was very helpful and understanding of our problem and I hope its not too long before we can book again.
