Superb breakfast, very nice clean room with a view of Skiddaw (No 2). Couple who run it are really helpful with tips on everything from mountain biking, walking, eating out etc.. We'd definitely go again.

We have stayed at Harvington House many times and would not consider staying anywhere else when visiting Keswick for a short break. Gina and Graham as always are wonderful hosts. Breakfast choice and cooking are both superb. Rooms are very well appointed and immaculately clean. Once again we had a very enjoyable stay.
