Babbling Brook Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Lovely greeting from very friendly host, we arrived at 12 and were able to check in early which was excellent. Our host took time to advise us of nice walks in the area and ask if we had anywhere booked for tea (which we did have) as he had recommendations of where we could go. The room was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated with a superb view of the hills and the river. Very comfy bed and all the facilities you could need for a pleasant stay. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, all fresh local produce cooked to order, and the host's "Velcro" dog who we got to meet and make a fuss of was beautiful! Our only regret was just booking one night! We will be back :)

The host was incredibly welcoming and helpful in every way - from recommending places to eat, to giving directions, to helping plan a fantastic walk for the next day! We turned up quite late and out of the blue on a Saturday evening, yet the welcome could not have been warmer. As for the room - it was a generous size, decor was modern and bed was comfy, there was a TV and kettle with plenty of tea and coffee. The breakfast was very nice, and the food was good quality as well as generous! We arrived there after dark, and so I had such a great surprise in the morning when I opened the curtains to see the view of the mountains and river - that was a treat!! Paul - if you read this, we had a great time heading out towards Gable, (Sprinkling Tarn was frozen solid!) and we hope to come back again some time.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Babbling Brook in January this year. We were looking for a cheap but nice room in Keswick. The Babbling Brook was lovely inside and out and we were greeted by the owner, Paul, who was a very genuine and friendly person. Our room was cosy, clean and the bed was very comfortable! The breakfast in the morning was great and the B&B was right next to the town. We couldn't have asked for more. We had no criticisms at all and left very happy. We are a young couple but I would recommend this B&B to anyone of any age. Highly recommended for the friendly, comfortable atmosphere and the lovely B&B overall! Perfect. Thank you Paul!

What a lovely welcoming place Babbling brook is, my wife, myself and 2 friends have just spent the weekend there. The owners couldnt do enough to help. Rooms are well furnished and clean. Food and service was brilliant. Really looking forward to our next visit.

Despite arriving into a very rainy Keswick after a 3 hour drive, our welcome to the Babbling Brook Guesthouse was warm, friendly and welcoming.
With advice about where to visit, eat and drink and only a 5 minute stroll from the main high street, this was the perfect place to stay.
We stayed in room 1, a deluxe room which hosted a stunning view of the mountain and the brook across the road.
The room was large and warm with a sofa and plenty of space.
Breakfast was an excellent full English and in addition cereal, fruit and fresh juice.
The owner also offered to make up a flask for our walk and then dried our wet weather gear on our return. They couldn't do enough for us! Would definitely stay again.
Thank you!

This is the best guesthouse I've stayed in. It's comfy, clean, modern and the breakfast was excellent. Paul the owner is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He has so many wonderful tales to tell, all genuinely interesting. This man has been up Everest!! And he's an Ironman!! He is a font of knowledge for the local area and can help you plan whatever activity you're thinking of. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for ensuite I think.

A lovely B&B. Friendly owners, clean room, comfortable bed, good breakfast and a truly lovely house dog (only allowed in the breakfast room with guests' permission!). Late checkins are no problem too - perfect if you are catching the late train.
