The best Guest house we've ever stayed in. We have stayed twice and look forward to future visits. Ideally located in Keswick. The little touches make all the difference and set Dunsford above the rest. The breakfasts with local produce were absolutely delicious.

Absolutely outstanding from the minute we walked through the door. On arrival at Dunsford nothing is too much trouble for Deb and Keith and we were even treated to tea and cake - very welcome after a long drive! The room was comfortable and imacculately presented. The breakfast was second to none with some lovely handmade touches. We were sad...

We have stayed at this guest house 3 times, I can only say it's the best B and B we have ever stayed, little touches are unbelievable scissors to cut the sauces open, fresh fruit at breakfast in abundance and cooked breakfast to die for, biscuits and fruit in the room the list is endless!!!! It's spotlessly clean and anything...

A fantastic weekend away in the Lakes. The owners Deb and Keith could not have been more helpful, providing useful information on the local area and serving up delicious breakfasts each morning. Our room (Grasmere) was very spacious and comfortable, with nice little touches to make the stay feel extra special. It would be hard to find a better BnB...

As a couple having a 2 day break in the Lake District, we were looking for a place to stay, now having stayed at Dunsford guest house we won't stay anywhere else when visiting Keswick. From the start you're very warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home. The room was spot on for us and breakfast was terrific...

First time at this guest house and I must say that it lives up to all the great reviews on this site. Deb was a fantastic host with her wonderful breakfasts and knowledge of where to go. Room was clean and had lots of little extras (replenished water, biscuits and fruit every day) When I return to Keswick it will...

This is my second visit to dunsford, excellent stays both times. A very welcoming family run the guest house and the breakfast is delicious! Nicely situated in the area, short walk to the town centre, close to many restaurants and within walking distance of all the attractions of the Lakes. Rooms and bathrooms are lovely, comfortable and spotless. Nice to...

Another return trip to the Dunsford hasn't failed to live up to expectations, we often say perhaps we should try somewhere else in the wonderful Lake District but why risk disappointment when you can rely on a warm welcome, excellent breakfast and clean comfortable accommodation.

Deb met us at the door with a wonderful smile and welcome. She took us to our room, (small, but very functional and, above all, comfortable), showed us a notebook with a lot of information about the B&B and the town, took our breakfast orders, gave us some several suggestions for dinner, told us to be sure to ask if...

Just returned from a 2 night stay. Deb and Keith are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms care comfy and spotlessly clean as is the whole house. You get the best hospitality tray in your room with not just the usual tea, coffee etc, but hot chocolate with a jar of marshmallows. You also get complimentary...
