We stayed at Ferndene, again, for Keswick Jazz Festival. For once we had sunshine on all four days. Richard and Christine are very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The room, as always, was spotless. The breakfast is very well cooked and tasty - all the food is locally sourced. We have stayed there every year of the ten years...

Just spent four nights here. The service was excellent, rooms comfortable and spotless, breakfasts well cooked, plentiful and lots of choice. The hosts, Richard and Christine, were extremely friendly and helpful. The guesthouse is a short walk from the centre and the lake, parking was fine and the streets quiet. Highly recommended and if we return to Keswick, no where...
