“Perfect Stay - Thank you!”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

We recently stayed at Ferndene as we were coming up country to get married at Gretna Green! We had a wonderful stay here. Christine, Richard, Olivia and Jessica were just lovely - very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in room 5 which was absolutely beautiful and the breakfasts were amazing! We even had a bottle of champagne and a cake baked for us to celebrate our wedding - how very kind and what a wonderful touch to make our already perfect stay that extra bit special. Thank you so much.

First time @ the Ferndene & we wasn't dissapointed! We stayed here with a group of friends whilst celebrating my 40th birthday & couldn't fault our stay in any way. Great location, great rooms & great breakfast, also Richard & family couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. Would recommend the Ferndene to anyone.

This was our 6th time staying at Ferndene. We try to come up once a year. We have stayed here with 3 different sets of friends and family. We always stay in the Annex with en-suite. The rooms are always clean tidy and ready for us. I love the egyptian cotton sheets on the bed.
The breakfasts are always freshly cooked with local ingredients. I especially liked the birthday candle in one of my mushrooms!!
Location is great for the lake and the town. Easy enough to go out for tea then walk it off a bit by the lake and back round.
Thank you Christine and Richard for always making us feel welcome.

We had an excellent stay at the Ferndene Guest House. Thank you Richard and Christine! It was nice talking with you and we enjoyed our stay. The room was perfect. We had a comfy king bed and a large bath in the Annex Bldg. Breakfast was just wonderful with everything you could ask for. I would recommend this Guest House to anyone staying in the area. BTW, it is not in the heart of Keswick, but you can easily walk into town or to a nearby trail head. The location was perfect!

1st stay here but couldn't ask for better accommodation. Friendly place, good size very clean and modern rooms. All the amenities you require including wi-fi, drying room, etc. Great breakfast. Location is ideal for Keswick and parking no problem. So all round spot on. Will defiantly return in the future.

Room Tip: All rooms would be OK, paid a little extra for a room with a view out to Latrigg and Skiddaw.
