Spotless dog friendly B&B. Lovely hosts in Wayne & Alison who go to so much trouble to ensure a great stay. Great breakfast and in a quiet street just a few minutes from the town centre. Highly recommend a stay if visiting Keswick and the lake's.

We stayed at Cragside last year and enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the owners. We have visited again this year with family and friends and took over the whole bed-and-breakfast! Once again Alison and Wayne were fabulous hosts. I would highly recommend this bed-and-breakfast accommodation in Keswick.

Clean as a whistle throughout. A very high standard of cleanliness and well maintained. A very comfortable bed, nice touches like few sweets, bottled water. Biscuits, nice toiletries. Plenty of towels etc. Hosts welcoming and dog friendly. Perfect location. Breakfast time bit limited 8.00 til 8.50 bit odd!

We stayed at Cragside for two nights whilst in Keswick for a wedding. We arrived just after midday but our room wasn't quite ready. This wasn't a problem as we were expecting this due to our early arrival. The owner advised if we wanted to nip out for a coffee our room would be ready for 1pm and he would...
