You are assured a warm, friendly and informal welcome to our, Visit England; 4 Star Silver & Breakfast Award Winning Traditional Lakeland Victorian Guest House. All five of our rooms are double bedded with full en-suite facilities. Free Wi-Fi available for guests. Abacourt is situated very close to the centre of Keswick, just a less than a 2 minute walk from its many shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and numerous other attractions and amenities, yet we are located in a cul-de-sac which makes for quiet evenings. Keswick is a great place to explore from on foot; a walk can start from our doorstep. We have guide books and maps you can borrow, whether your wish a gentle low level walk or something more demanding.Car parking in Keswick is at a great premium. To the rear of the house there is private off street parking. May we take this opportunity to point out that Abacourt is strictly NON-SMOKING.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our second stay at Abacourt Guest House this year. We’ve stayed both through the summer and winter. John and Heather are delightful hosts, really warm, welcoming and friendly. The rooms are immaculately clean and clean towels, toiletries, and tea/coffee regularly replaced. Rooms are also warm and very comfortable. En-suite bathrooms are modern and have a lovely powerful shower. The breakfast is really tasty and high quality, choices from a full English to lighter options. John and Heather will prepare a packed lunch if required at an extra charge, but very reasonable. Location is excellent for the centre of Keswick. Would highly recommend.

We have stayed at Abacourt Guest House many times over the past 15 years. John and Heather are superb, helpful hosts. The rooms and beds are very comfortable and tastefully decorated, the breakfasts excellent, and location perfect. We can't say enough good about Abacourt House - we will be back again!

Location is fantastic, with free parking at the rear, John and Heather very welcoming and nice people. Our room, room 5, was spotless very clean and comfortable with a nice view from window. The breakfast is something to look forward to, very good quality. Our stay was very reasonably priced, especially for the location of the property. We will be back.

Our return to the Abacourt for the first time in a year, and it was great to be back! A long weekend in Keswick to finish our Christmas gift shopping and just unwind. John and Heather made us really welcome. Our room, as always, was inviting and comfortable and the local produce breakfast set us up for our days out and about. Located only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Keswick makes it ideal for shopping and eating out locally. The weekend went far too quickly and we look forward to our next stay.

From arrival to leaving we couldn't have been made more welcome. John and Heather do everything possible to make you feel at home. The place is very clean and well maintained. Room one is a odd size with ensuite and a seating area by the bay window with unobstructed views of the mountains. There is on and off street parking and a small garden to the front of the property. Breakfast is excellent with a choice of menu booked the night before and packed lunches are available at a reasonable charge. Ideally located for the town centre, restaurants and the lake. We would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone.

We have stayed at Abacourt B&B several times over the years and already look forward to our next return. It provides immaculate, tastefully decorated, comfortable accommodation with delicious breakfasts. The hosts are very warm, friendly and helpful. The location is excellent in the heart of Keswick but on a quiet side street. We are keen fell walkers and many choices are easily accessed from Abacourt. Could not recommend it more highly!

Absolutely fantastic stay with very friendly and helpful staff that could not do more for you. And good views of the hills with spacious comfortable bedroom, very close to the town centre, breakfast was always very good with a good range of local products to choose from and always filled us up.
