A truly lovely couple Linda and Stephen made every effort to make the couple of nights stayed a genuine treat. Accommodation and facilities were superb and the overall feeling you are left with is one of wanting to return sometime soon.
A pleasure in many ways. Plus the new showers were superb.

Stayed 3rd & 4th May 2013 - Stephen and Linda are so nice and welcoming, I honestly cannot recommend this place enough. All other B&B's I've stayed at come nowhere near the quality of this. The rooms are so immaculate it looks like we were the first guests to stay in them! Breakfast was fantastic - Stephens cooked breakfast is amazing - especially the black pudding, which even my wife enjoyed (she claims to not like black pudding). Everything about it was perfect. Keswick is a beautiful place (and just round the corner), but we wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much if it wasn't for the hospitality. We will be back.......

Thank you for the very kind remarks. You certainly enjoyed your first visit. It means so much to us to hear that guests have had such an amazing experience staying with us. Yes, Keswick is a lovely place. It's not until people come and visit that they realise just how lovely. We like to think that we're helping to make a visit to Keswick just a little bit special. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

We stayed for 2 nights at Avondale whilst doing the coast to coast bike ride. I cannot recommend it enough.
The owners Linda and Stephen made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms are spotless, modern, well decorated whilst also keeping the traditional feel of a guesthouse. The shower was great and just what we needed after a long day in the saddle.
There is a fantastic choice for breakfast even for the fussiest of eaters like myself.
Great location, close to the centre and there was also a lock up for our bikes.
Amazing stay, thank you :-)

You must be the first guest to post a review before leaving! Thank you for that and we're so happy that you enjoyed your couple of nights with us. We hope all went well with the next stages of your coast to coast trip. It was an absolute pleasure having the four of you stay with us and we're glad to have been able to help out in any way. You should look out for the Fred Whitton Challenge on the 12th of May this year. Something for next year perhaps?

If your thinking of staying in Keswick this is the best place to stay. It is immaculately clean, very comfortable, and Stephens breakfast (which are gorgeous! a must to try is scrambled egg and smoked salmon on toasted granary bread.) are just what you need before setting out on a days walking. Stephen and Linda are the perfect hosts and cant do enough for you. They're also a good source of information on all local walks. We've stayed with them about eleven times over the past couple of years and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. We've even stayed when they've been quiet due to upgraded the rooms and putting new bathrooms in (not that they looked like they needed doing anyway!) and its still been immaculate! Stephen and Linda deserve to do really well with their business because they are such a lovely friendly couple. Thanks for a lovely weekend at Easter, and see you again as soon as we can. xx

Thank you for all the compliments, they're much appreciated. It was fabulous to see you both once more and even better that you managed to bring Tania again. Tell her we'll make sure the American pancakes are still on the menu for her next visit. Don't know about the smoked salmon though. Ha ha, just kidding! :-) We hope you manage to visit again this year and allow us a rematch at darts. All the best.
