Short break in the Lakes and couldnt fault this lovely b and b. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and hosts Christine and Richard friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were first class. Will definately stay again.

Stayed at Ferndene Guest House for 3 nights as a belated birthday present from my daughter. The owners Christine & Richard (and their helpers!) are so welcoming and friendly, they really put 110% into making you feel welcome and enjoy your stay. My daughter 'Googled' where to stay and how lucky was I that she found Ferndene Guest House :-) We stayed in the annexe and we had read on previous reviews that the room was small but as we were only using it for somewhere to lay our heads after trips out during the day it didn't bother us and we found it more than adequate. It was really clean, probably the cleanest room I've stayed in on my travels for some years so I would forgo a bit of extra space for that alone! Comfortable beds, lovely bed linen, TV, great selection of teas, my daughter couldn't believe Green Tea was on offer which is what she drinks. The only place I've stayed where I haven't had to pop to Reception to stock up on milk or tea or coffee as there was more than enough in the room. You have a sheet which you fill in each evening to choose the breakfast for the following morning. It was lovely, you could have a proper 'full English' if you wanted which a lot of hotels & B&B's advertise (without letting you choose) but don't actually deliver. All local produce, great portions, well cooked (better poached eggs then I have ever managed). I over ordered on the first day (thinking of other places I've stayed) and couldn't quite finish which made me feel a bit guilty as it was so lovely and I wasted it :-( Close to town centre, 5 minute walk, somewhere to park your car. I would definitely recommend this B&B and would stay here again.

We loved out stay here last here and will definitely stay again. The breakfast is delicious with a wide variety of choice. We stayed in the en suite superior room, which is very large and beautifully decorated. What made the stay even better was how welcoming and helpful the owner was. He took the time to find out exactly what we wanted from our stay and recommended some lovely walks. This was our best stay in the lakes by far!

The Ferndene is a superb Guest House tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean and only a ten minute stroll into the centre of Keswick, stayed two nights in room 1 (Suite) which has fantastic views over Keswick and the fells. We chose this Guest House after reading many reviews and we were not disappointed. Christine & Richard are excellent hosts and cook breakfasts to die for with a choice to cover all tastes. Another plus is private car park.we shall definitely return to the Ferndene in the near future and wish Richard and Christine all the success they thoroughly deserve.

Stayed for three nights at ferndene guest house in keswick, we had a lovely stay, from the warm welcome as we drove onto the car park, to the lovely clean and well appointed room, and the wonderful home cooked breakfast. The guest house is ideally located being only five mins stroll from the centre and richard and christine cannot do any more to make
you feel welcome, they also have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and things to do. Five star guest house, and you must try the home made jams, especially the rhubarb and ginger. Thanks for a lovely stay
