Absolutely fabulous. Ten out of ten for accommodation, food and location. The host is so warm and welcoming. We have just come back from a 4 night stay in room 3 and we will definitely be returning. Don't miss out on this little gem of a bed and breakfast with stunning scenery all around and the added benefit of the Swinside Inn just a few minutes walk away.

Myself and my sister stayed for 4 nights and we had a great time. Jo who runs the bed and breakfast is lovely and very helpful. She cooks a fab full English breakfast which keeps you going until lunchtime. Our twin room with ensuite was spotless,beautifully decorated and the beds are really comfortable. I am definitely going back to stay in this lovely peaceful guesthouse surrounded by beautiful hills.

PREPARE TO BE SPOILED! I cannot rate Swinside Farmhouse highly enough. Do not hesitate to book if you are lucky enough to find 1 of their 3 rooms available. We stayed in the twin room - number 3. It was perfect for my teenage son and l for a 3 night break during this half term. He was delighted with the WiFi connection too.- the all important issue to teens! Jo is such a professional host and clearly takes great pride in her business. She has everything organised like clockwork. She has been here 24 years and it shows - she pays great attention to detail and really knows how to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Jo is so helpful and even text the day before we arrived to see what time we would like to arrive and to provide specific directions as the Sat Nav is not accurate. Her husband Rob is a professional painter and decorator and therefore the whole place is decorated to an incredibly high standard . It is absolutely spotless and all the little finishing touches really give the wow factor to the pretty little rooms. Storm Franklyn hit whilst we were there which took out the power on our first night-Jo took this all in her stride . She sent a text immediately reassuring us that she was dealing with it and kept us informed throughout. Room 3 -Twin room *Decorated to a high standard *Plenty of storage for clothes/toiletries *Spacious bathroom-power shower/heated towel rail *Fresh towels daily *Travel size kettle. Fresh milk & biscuits daily *Flat screen TV with remote *Extra blankets in wardrobe As for breakfast - 10/10 EXCELLENT ! Jo gives you a tick box menu in advance each day - as a retired British Airways stewardess I can honestly say that it's better service and quality than any 5 star hotel I have ever stayed in. TIP- If you don't want to eat in the Inn across the road ( I really would not recommend it as the menu is so expensive and both the service and food were very poor) there are plenty of better options nearby but will require a short car journey. Keswick is only minutes away. The Horse & Farrier pub at Threkeld 5miles away has always had an excellent reputation and it was FABULOUS! Thank you so much Jo for taking such good care of us. We only wish we could have stayed for longer.

A lovely tranquil location in the Newlands Valley. We had a very nice room with a comfortable bed, Breakfast was excellent with a very wide choice, the Swinside Inn is just across the road and serves good food if you don't want to travel far for dinner. Jo was a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, yet unobtrusive host. We had a great 2 night stay, surrounded by the amazing scenery.

Lovely short break in Newlands Valley. Our 3rd visit. Guesthouse is so lovely. Our room was spacious and cosy. Breakfast is amazing. Jo is so friendly and helpful. We look forward to our visit every October. So many great walks close by. Keswick is very picturesque and so many parts of the lakes easy to get to. Glad we discovered this gem.
