Amazing farm b&b! We loved our luxurious stay here. The view was beautiful, the people welcoming , the room was comfortable, and the breakfast was the best on our trip. Great location to Keswick but really out in the countryside. Lambs to pet, too! An all around great place to stay.

Having just stayed at this B&B, I can honestly say it's one of the best I have stayed at. The house itself is very charming with many original features. It has been very well renovated and maintained. The rooms have great views and the bedding and towels are really soft and comfortable. The owners are really friendly and will go...

Really comfortable beds in a room which had everything you could need. We had a room at the back which opened out onto the parking space which was really convenient. Martyn and the lady who did the breakfast were friendly and welcoming- the breakfast was delicious and the views from the farmhouse beautiful. Would recommend and revisit !

This was our first stop on a two week trip around the Lakes, Scotland and the north-east, and it was a perfect way to start a wonderful holiday.
