Rooms were tastefully decorated and spotless every day. Breakfast was...

Excellent B&B just outside Keswick (About £7.50 by taxi by the way). Food was brilliant (there was even fresh berries for breakfast!) and the hospitality was great, a very welcoming couple. Clothes were dried for us and a nice little tea set in the room. No complaints whatsoever.

A good nights sleep and great breakfast set us out on the road in great spirits. We plan to revisit in the...

Joe & Rob were super hosts, breakfast was outstanding and the accommodation was very comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Stayed here for one night as a last minute break in Room number 1 which was located upstairs with its window overlooking the front lane. The room was immaculately clean and spacious with an en-suite shower room. Lovely walks from the doorstep towards Braithwaite along the riverbank path or the quiet lane. Very peaceful location and a generous breakfast.
