As others have said in their reviews it isn't just the location of the Lake View that grabs you but the way in which you are welcomed by Catherine and Stuart into their home. Arrived Wednesday and we were that day's only guests, super welcome and once unpacked were treated to coffee and homemade drizzle cake in front of the...

Stayed for a weekend break - location is ideal for leaving the car and exploring Keswick. Catherine is a fabulous host - great room with massive en- suite - plentiful breakfast . Tea and cake on arrival , individually wrapped home made biscuits in the room to soak up the raspberry gin. Say no more

We had a lovely 3 night stay here with Catherine and Stuart. They were the perfect hosts in this beautifully furnished Edwardian house, nothing was too much trouble for them starting with a welcoming drink and cake in the comfortable lounge with the log fire already warming the room. Our tastefully decorated room was on the front of the house...

We really enjoyed our stay at Lake View. Catherine and Stuart are wonderful hosts. The tea and cake upon our arrival were delicious and their home is absolutely lovely! We liked the convenient private parking and the comfort/cleanliness of our room, which came with delicious homemade biscuits. Breakfasts were amazing and so filling that we didn't need to eat lunch!...

The Lake View was a real find for us. We were traveling with another couple, and booked well in advance. The rooms were extremely comfortable, with a spacious bath that included a large bathtub. The view from the front of our room was wonderful, down over the lake. The hosts are very accommodating; they even helped us book a location...

We stayed in a beautifully decorated and furnished room at the front of the house with great views out to the the lake. Immaculately clean, comfortable, tasteful and in a fabulous spot to explore the northern part of the Lake District. Stuart gave us a lovely welcome with coffee and homemade cake in the living room and was very helpful...

Excellent accommodation and room, great breakfasts, very friendly and helpful hosts. Added bonus of off-street guest parking - extremely useful on busy weekends in the Lakes. Good location, 20 minute walk to Keswick town centre or 25 minutes to Braithwaite, where there are plenty of dinner options.
