We recently returned from a 4 night break at Allerdale House in Keswick with our friends and we cannot fault our experience of The Lakes in any way, from the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out. We were looked after by our hosts, Paul and Barbara and welcomed with tea and biscuits on arrival. They were always on hand to offer any advice if required.
The rooms were modern and comfortable with plenty of storage for clothes and wonderful views overlooking the fells. The bathroom was small but adequately equipped with a nice hot, powerful shower. Most importantly everywhere was spotlessly clean!
Breakfast was served each morning from 8.15am to 9am with a choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, juices, tea and coffee followed by a choice of a Cumbrian big breakfast or vegetarian option or you could pre-order a continental option, a yoghurt crunch option or porridge. There was a lounge area with comfy sofas and guests could have free access to the computer and internet together with a bookcase containing many useful maps and leaflets of Keswick and surrounding areas.
The location of the B&B was fantastic as it is only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick where you are spoilt for choice for places to eat on an evening, many tea rooms and not to mention the many many outdoor shops!
Overall our experience was excellent and we will definitely be returning to the Lake District and hopefully Allerdale House if there are vacancies! The fact that the weather was gorgeous the whole weekend really did make our trip all the more wonderful. Thank you Paul and Barbara.
