Positive Reviews

Very tranquil location

Guests were very happy indeed with the location of the guest house. They described it as being a little ways from Keswick and a bit off the main tourist trail. This suited guests just fine, since it meant that the immediate environment was very tranquil. They also mentioned that the walk into Keswick and its amenities was only 20 minutes or so.

Hosts were the perfect innkeepers

Guests simply couldn't speak more highly about the hosts, Catherine and Stuart. Right from the very start, when they were served tea and cake in the lounge right after check-in, guests mentioned that they were taken care of at every stage of their stay. The hosts couldn't seem to do too much for their guests and were also said to be good sources of knowledge on nearby trails and other attractions.

Breakfast suitable for all

The breakfast served at the guest house every morning was not only praised because it was delicious and offered an extensive variety of foods, but also for the hosts willingness to properly accommodate guests with special diets, like vegetarian, gluten free etc. Guests on these diets did not feel like they were an afterthought, but that they were very well catered to. Many also mentioned liking the communal breakfast table, which got everybody talking first thing in the morning.
