Stayed for three nights with my husband and have had such a lovely time. The room was spacious and well appointed with a very comfortable bed, whilst the property was very clean and felt very homely. Breakfast was outstanding with options for everyone and ingredients of the highest quality. The location is great, easy access to Keswick by boat, car...

My mum and I stayed here a couple of days ago, we had a fantastic time, clear instructions were emailed to us to find the place. On arrival Jo the owner showed us to our lovely room, everywhere is spotless and the view out of our window of the hills beyond was wonderful. Jo was so informative and let us...

Birthday treat get away. Lovely farmhouse sat at the back of Cat Bells, Jo clearly works very hard to make sure guests have everything they need. Pristine accommodation decorated to a high standard, excellent breakfast and great pub opposite which serves good food and drinks. You really cant go wrong,just what we needed thanks Jo.

Rooms smallish but what you expect for a b&b but an excellent breakfast with fresh fruit and quality bacon and sausage. The owners were happy to offer suggestions for local walks. Easy to have an evening meal at the pub opposite.

Loved this B&B. Jo is a great host and makes the best breakfasts. Very very clean and fresh decor. We even enjoyed a few drinks with her in the local pub across the road. Will defiantly be staying here again.

We have just enjoyed a lovely 3-night stay at the farmhouse and had a wonderful time. Jo looked after us so well - she upgraded our room for no extra cost as we were staying 3 nights and no-one was booked into her larger room, which was a lovely surprise. Jo's breakfasts are delicious and really set us up for...

We stayed here last year, and the year before that too. This time we stayed two nights instead of one. It's as good as it's always been. Jo's very welcoming, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the breakfast is very tasty and uses locally sourced produce - the plateful of Cumbrian breakfast kept us going all day. The pub...

I'm sorry I didn't respond right after our trip to let our hosts know how much we enjoyed our stay. The Swinside Farm stay was one of our favorite places during our England Scotland trip last year. the pub/restaurant across the way meant we could have a lovely authentic dinner and drinks and walk up to our room. We hiked...

We stayed at Swinside Farmhouse for 4 nights in late October/early November 2016. It really was the most perfect experience - the B&B is very clean and comfortable in a stunning location (many people say it is the best location in the Lake District). Jo was very helpful with the booking and advice on the area. It is very rural...
