My friends and I stayed here at the weekend as we attended a wedding at the Armathwaite Hall. Sharon was really welcoming and happy to help with advice for getting around the area and anything we needed during our stay. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and one had a great view of the lake and hills. The breakfast was...

Nice review thanks! It is a great location and so convenient as you say for weddings at Armathwaite Hall. Next time you stay with us let us arrange a Spa day for you at Armathwaite Hall. ( Maybe on the wedding Anniversary! Now there's a thought.)

We stayed two nights in May for a wedding that was nearby. The guest house was perfectly presented, our room was spacious and had incredible views over the lake. The breakfast was delicious too. Dubwath is a pretty village and a short drive from Keswick.

We were made very welcome with a pot of tea and milk for our two small grandsons. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very comfortable and ours had a stunning view over the lake. The breakfasts were great! It was a most enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend it.

Really welcoming guest house with a pot of tea and warm milk for the kids on arrival. The views were spectacular, the rooms very comfortable and a very high quality breakfast cooked by a professional chef. Thank you for all the warming up of the kid's milk.

It was such a pleasure meeting you all and finding out that your granny used to own Lakeside in the 1970's. Do come and stay again.

I arrived and was met by the owner who showed me to my room and then made me a fresh pot of tea. What a lovely touch. We then had a chat about the best places to visit/eat. I would stay here again....

Sorry for the late review but would just like to thank Arnie & son for their wonderful hospitality back at the beginning of December when we couldn't get back to our rented cottage. We were housed and fed for 3 days when we were stranded because of the floods and found this little gem. Much appreciated for the warm welcome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Lodge for 3 nights in November 2015. It has all the trappings of a hotel with the added facility of being self catering. Sharon, the owner, has ensured everything you need is in the Lodge. The central heating made the whole place lovely and cosy on cold winter nights. The location is excellent...

We were made very welcome at Lakeside, the room was very comfortable and clean. There was endless hot water. The breakfast was delicious, all tastes catered for. We were on a cycling trip and the lanes around the lake and beyond were so beautiful . We will definitely return. Arnold and Sharon were excellent hosts.

Husband and I took the dog up to the Lakes for a week and stayed in the self catered cottage around the back of the guest house. It was perfect. A secure garden for the dog to go outside in, with lights for those night time toilet visits. Fantastic wifi, a very well equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), power shower, bath,...
