Decided to spend my birthday weekend in the Lakes again, as always we wouldn't consider staying anywhere other than Pitcairn House! Myself and my partner usually visit Keswick as a couple but this time we invited friends along too...needless to say they weren't disappointed,

We have had a run of guests recently enjoying their birthdays with us and is always fantastic to be part of the celebration whenever we can. It is particularly important for us to ensure we do our best to make these event as memorable as possible and pleased to see we have achieved our aim once again. Have to agree that winter walking is always a wonderful experience, although the open fire and a pint in the pub is a great insentive to finish. We look forward to seeing you later in the year and hope your friends can come too. Kind regards, Heather and Steve.

We would never think of staying anywhere else when we visit Keswick - and would consider the owners, Steve and Heather, more as friends than hosts. The rooms are warm, comfortable and spacious with every amenity you could wish for, and the breakfasts can only be described

It is always a pleasure welcoming both of you into our home and for us feels like having family coming to visit. It is also extremely rewarding to know that not only do you feel relaxed and comfortable whilst staying here but that we also achieve so many other positives, especially regarding the breakfast. As one of our more regular guests it is also satisfying for us to see that following each visit you add us a such a lovely review which is very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you later in the year but for now kindest regards Heather and Steve.

Stayed here for two nights just after New Year. What a lovely b&b, rooms beautifully decorated and everything you need. The breakfast was plentiful with superb sausages the best I have tasted in any b&b! The owners Heather and Steve were superb hosts. The b&b is two minutes walk

We are so pleased you enjoyed your “mini break” at Pitcairn House, found your room so appealing and felt breakfast was satisfying as well as plentiful. Would seem our close location to town was also a major plus for you and is often a point of comment for many of our guests as is our small car park. Thank you for adding all your positive remarks and we too hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards Heather and Steve.

Hello, sorry but like the majority of guests houses we do not have a lounge for guests. We have a good sized dining room and have no problem with guests sitting in there during the afternoon/evening. Kind Regards heather and Steve
