“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

After much research we chose this guest house and it didn't disappoint. We arrived before the check-in time and were met in the car park by Richard who helped us with our bags. We were in Room 3 on the top floor with its great views. The room was lovely and bright with plenty of storage. Breakfast was excellent and set you up for the day. Richard and Christine are very friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do. The location is great - very handy for the town and lake but really quiet as it's in a residential area. The off-street parking is a bonus - we didn't need to use the car at all. A great base and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Room 3 has great views but Room 5 has a separate living area.

we have been coming to keswick for 36 years, usually camping in the past but are now looking for a bit of luxury and comfort and we found it a few years ago at the ferndene.we come here 2 or 3 times a year and chris and mark are so welcoming, the rooms are excellent (we have room 3, the views over skiddaw are stunning!) breakfast keeps us going all day. mark is very knowledgable for all the walks and conditions of the area so you can plan a day if you are a newbie to the lakes. keswick feels like a second home to us and everything at the ferndene suits us. brilliant place to stay.

Room Tip: all rooms are good but the top floor has a separate sitting room and bedroom

Perfect location, wonderful helpful and friendly owners. A relaxing time, rooms were beautiful, not skimpy on breakfast. A lovely atmosphere. Its a must to stay at if your visiting keswick. Hopefully it will never change as it is perfect as it is.

Great location, great people! We chose this guest house from the internet as the price seemed very reasonable and the rooms looked nice. we were not disappointed! What a fantastic place this turned out to be. The photos can't convey what a lovely clean, comfortable and welcoming place this was to stay. Breakfast was lovely, and we always seemed to be laughing. Christine, Richard & Caroline are very friendly and accommodating hosts. no matter what you plans are in the Lake district this is an ideal place to make the most of your time there as it added to our enjoyment and relaxation.

After a very long search on the web, I finally chose the Ferndene and booked a stay for four days August 2012 Monday to Friday.

This was only my second visit to the lakes and I wanted to stay in Keswick with my 15 year old daughter so we could do some outdoor activities.
Our room was in the Annex which was very nice and comfortable. the breakfast was the best we had ever been served even in comparison to some fine hotels I have stayed inn.
Richard is so attentive during breakfast and is full of knowledge and therefore guided us to the best activities in the area.

all in all we had a great time in Keswick and we will defiantly choose the Ferndene again as our first choice.

This is an ideal place to stay in Keswick. Close to the town centre with parking the location could not be better. It is very easy to find and the directions from the proprieters are idiot prooof.
Welcome was friendly and informative and our stay was comfortable, relaxing and easy going.
The romm we had, Room 5, was spacious, clean and well maintained and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was as copious as you would want and Richard and Christine were easy going and friendly hosts. Cannot be faulted. If in Keswick this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 5 suited us fine
