“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We stayed at Abacourt House for only one night on a flying visit to Keswick. Pity. The place and the hosts were absolutely charming. Older home had character and was in remarkably good condition. Rooms and common areas were spotless. Food was excellent. Price was reasonable. Parking was available. We could tell that the hosts took particular pride in being on the upper levels of the hospitality charts. We would definitely stay again.

Just had 3 nights at the Abacourt. This was our second stay having been there last year and our experience then resolved us to return. Warm welcome on arrival and a lovely room with a great view over keswick to the Lakeland hills.
Great location, 2 minutes from the town centre, with easy parking.
John and Heather give great, friendly service, making us feel really comfortable.
We would recommend the Abacourt to anyone spending a few days in Keswick and surrounding areas. We would have loved to stay longer, and will certainly be back for another stay.

John greeted us upon arrival,helped us get parked up & took our bag up to our room. Really warm & friendly fella! We were in room 2, fewer stairs to climb than on past visits to other guest houses - for some reason we always find ourselves placed on the top floor - shattering after a days hill climbing! Anyway, really nice sized room, very tastefully decorated with a lovely sized ensuite, very clean & comfortable. Didn't hear any noise from any of the other guests, slept very well as bed was really comfy with lovely pillows. The breakfast room is a nice size, not too many tables so not overcrowded. Very nice selection of cereals, yogurts & fresh fruit. Tea was one of the best tasting cuppa's ive had in Keswick. I had poached eggs on toast every morning & it was perfect, my fella had scramble egg with salmon one morning & a full brekkie the others - it looked delicious & there was an empty plate each time so must have been good! Heather welcomed us each morning & took our breakfast orders. She was very nice & friendly. Excellent service, dealt with breakfast for everyone swiftly & efficiently. There was no waiting for anything. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse, everything you could want & in an excellent position for everything.

Wonderful bed and breakfast. Central location in the heart of Keswick.
very clean and the breakfast to a very high standard.

John and Heather the owners made us very welcome and told us and loaned us a book on local walks.

Nothing to fault and we would definitely recommend this lovely Bed and Breakfast

Nice location, very clean, non-smoking, and wonderful hosts - told us all about the area.
Even loaned us a book of local hikes.
Free parking on the street, and even a few private parking spots in the back if no street parking available.
Ave size bedroom, nice furnishings, good bedding and nice bathrooom.
We liked the 'just-off-the-city-center' locale with shops and restarurants very close by.
There is even a little bridge taking you into the nearby park from the top of the street - nice shortcut!!
Breakfast was really good.
Would stay again - just wonderful hosts.
Thanks for letting us stay in your home.

This was our second stay here. The welcome is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spotlessly clean and well-decorated and the breakfast is generous and beautifully cooked. An ideal B & B we'd definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room for great views of the fells.
