Hermiston Guest House is an excellent choice for lodging when you visit the Lake District. The location in the small village of Braithwaite, about 2 1/2 miles from Keswick, is a peaceful place away from crowds. One of the best benefits of this place are the welcoming and friendly owners, who gave us a wealth of helpful information about walks,...
