We stayed at Avondale for the second time this year. It's always a calm oasis in the heart of bustling Keswick. As always, the breakfasts were as tasty as could be, and set us up for the long walks between mountains and pubs! We will definitely be returning as soon as possible.

A faultless stay at an extremely welcoming guesthouse. From the moment we walked in To the moment we left was absolutely perfect, will be staying there again in 2017 without hesitation. The only criticism is that we couldn't stay longer to enjoy the hospitality and the company of tony and pearl.
