Our second visit here, a very warm welcome on arrival like a home from home! Room spotlessly clean... Breakfast was fabulous and plenty of choice even a sausage for the dog. A lovely place to stay so close to the town centre and the hosts really make you want to return.

Stayed over a long weekend hiking with friends. Excellent, helpful and friendly service. Good room and facilities, good quality breakfast, the yoghurt and fruit particularly welcome, going some way to counter-balance the full English. Handy for town. Would definitely stay again.

Spent another long weekend in Keswick at the Rivendell. As always Linda and Pat were excellent hosts and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are delightful to stay in. Dogs are welcome and our own dog Buddy knows his way to the bedroom and loves the sausage treat he is given. You wont be disappointed staying here

Lovely place to stay, we spent three nights with our pet dog who was treated lovely and the owners always saved her a sausage at breakfast.
