Fantastic little guest house in a nice quiet street just a few minutes walk from the centre of town. The couple that run this place are lovely and make you feel special and the breakfasts are fantastic with proper bacon and sausage and free range eggs! The rooms are well presented and very, very clean! Highly recommended.

Second visit here, absolutely spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm, slightly dated but it makes for a really cosy stay. There is everything you need in the room. Helpful and pleasant couple who it seems will do anything to make your stay better. We loved it, the views from our room were fantastic (could watch walkers on top Latrigg whilst lying in...

Very quiet yet central B&B. Nice en-suite room, with a perfect view onto mountains. Excellent location for us while visiting extended family in the Lake District. Great breakfast that set us up for the day. Fantastic heating system that was easily adjusted. We highly rate Cragside in all respects.

Spotless dog friendly B&B. Lovely hosts in Wayne & Alison who go to so much trouble to ensure a great stay. Great breakfast and in a quiet street just a few minutes from the town centre. Highly recommend a stay if visiting Keswick and the lake's.

We stayed at Cragside last year and enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the owners. We have visited again this year with family and friends and took over the whole bed-and-breakfast! Once again Alison and Wayne were fabulous hosts. I would highly recommend this bed-and-breakfast accommodation in Keswick.

Clean as a whistle throughout. A very high standard of cleanliness and well maintained. A very comfortable bed, nice touches like few sweets, bottled water. Biscuits, nice toiletries. Plenty of towels etc. Hosts welcoming and dog friendly. Perfect location. Breakfast time bit limited 8.00 til 8.50 bit odd!

Thank coochy
