Large guest house, closer to a small hotel really. Our room had good views over the cells. It was spacious and facilities were adequate. Breakfast was also very good (apart from the boiled mushrooms). We would definitely stay here again.

This was a handy stop off on the way back from Scotland. Breakfast good, room was clean. Shower is very small not great if you're 6'4" like me. Would benefit from a more welcoming lounge area to unwind rather than staying in your room. Good pub just down the road. Owners were lovely people

Stayed for a night to attend an event in nearby town and wanted to go to the Keswick market. Lovely and clean inside and out, nice greeting by the gentleman owner.

Had a 3 night break.Owners really friendly. Guesthouse in a great location with clean rooms and excellent breakfast. Taking dogs to hotels etc usually means you are put in a less clean/modern room. Our family had 3 rooms and took a dog with us. All the rooms were v. clean. Definately be going back.

Cumbria is in the process of recovering from severe flooding and roads are closed and visitors are thin on the ground but there was a warm welcome, a cosy comfortable room and a generous tasty breakfast at the Rickerby Grange. Also a charming Christmas show at Theatre by the Lake.

Stayed here for two nights bed and breakfast. Very friendly and helpful. Immaculate bedroom and lovely breakfast room. Cannot fault at all. It's about a 10 minute enjoyable stroll into Keswick. We stayed with friends that had been to Rickerby Grange some years ago, they also were not disappointed. A most enjoyable short stay, would be happy to return any...

It was eleven years since our last visit so we were prepared for change, apart from a lack in decoy upgrading it was just the same place as we fondly remembered it, the breakfasts were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. N.B. it is up for sale at present.
