“Top Class Guest House”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

We have just got home from an absolutely wonderful stay at the Parkfield Guest House and I simply can't recommend it highly enough! This was just a brief stay, a 2 night weekend away with friends, but we will certainly be returning as soon as possible for a longer family holiday. One couple in our party had stayed here last November and recommended we all book in quickly for our annual get-together. How grateful I am that we did! From the moment we walked through the door we felt at home; John and Susan made us feel so welcome, the room was pure heaven and the fabulous scenery is literally on your doorstep. We had a superior twin room; oodles of space, a two seater sofa to relax with a cuppa, thick duvets, crisp bedding, soft white towels, quality toiletries and a wonderful double size shower - need I say more?! As if this isn't enough, the breakfasts are superb with an array of fresh fruit, cereals and yoghurts, finished off with a generous full english, HOT toast (which in my experience is rare!) and fresh cafetiere coffee. Wonderful! The location is perfect as well, with excellent restaurants close by and the lake a lovely stroll away to walk off all that breakfast! In the past we have stayed in a large up-market hotel on the lakeside just outside Keswick and I can honestly say this beautiful hidden treasure has outdone the tired furnishings of that establishment and the quality of the breakfast as well as the warm hospitality of the hosts beats it hands down. Thank you so much John and Susan, you will definitely see us again and again!

My husband and I have just returned home from a 4 night stay at the Parkfield. From the moment we arrived we recieved a lovely welcome from Susan and John who are so friendly and the perfect hosts. Compliments to Susan for all her hard work cooking fabulous breakfasts and for John for his lovely, charming conversation and waiting on skills. The Parkfield is in an excellent location - so close to the lake, park, restaurants, public houses, etc that you could not wish for more. Accomodation is first class, spotlessly clean and decorated so tastefully. Car parking is an extra bonus with six spaces, one for each room. This was our first visit but definately not our last. Thanks Susan and John for a wonderful few days in beautiful Keswick.

My wife and traveled to Keswick in May 2012. It was our first time at Parkfield, but it won't be our last! Parkfield Guest House is a delight, and the hosts - John and Susan - are so very helpful. The rooms are light and airy, and the breakfasts were just wonderful - fresh, local ingredients prepared so very well. Its location is just excellent, and only a few steps from Keswick's excellent Theatre by the Lake.

We stayed in six different towns on our first drive through the UK. The Parkfield Guest House was the best place we stayed in. It's perfect in every way. The location is ideal. It's toward the end of a quiet street and only a few minutes walk to the center of town. There's a private car park in back of the house. Our room had a comfortable king-size bed, large TV, tasteful decor (done by John), beautiful bathroom with heated towel rack, nice shower and was spotless. The breakfast is fantastic----full English breakfast of eggs, sausage, bacon, baked tomato and beans, lots of fresh fruit, dried fruit, yogurt, cereals, juice, toast, etc. John and Sue are fabulous hosts----they are friendly and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay.

We have stayed at the Parkfield quite a few times, over the Easter break and usually have a long weekend in October ......... this guest house never fails to amaze us, from the moment you are greeted, it's like home from home.

The Parkfield is ideally situated, and is a two minute walk to all the supberb pubs and restaurants in the town, Morrells, The Pheasant, and The George. There is on site parking which is a godsend in Keswick.

The rooms are spotless, and the breakfasts are superb ........we always manage to put a few pounds on after our visit!!

Susan and John are fantastic hosts ....go on try a weekend here ............. you know you want to!!

We have stayed a Parkfield a couple of times and cannot recommend it highly enough.
John & Susan are extremely graceous & welcoming hosts. The rooms are clean, spaceous, comfortable yet cozy and have amazing views. The beds were very comfortable, just what you need after a big walk.
The breaksfast is fantastic, locally sourced and cooked to perfection and really sets you up for a day on the hills. John & Susan are very knowledgeable about the area and more than happy to share their expert views, whether it is places to eat or hills to walk.
The location of Parkfield couldn't be better, it was so peaceful you would never think you were only a minutes walk to the town centre.
The last point to make is that you can park off street which is a rarity so close to the centre of Keswick.
We cannot wait to go back as it feels like we have discovered a hidden gem. A place you want to return to again and again.

We have just returned from a short break at the Parkfield and I can honestly say I have never had a more enjoyable stay anywhere.The standards set by John and Sue are exceptional .we had a kingsize room which was beautifully furnished and decorated.The bed was very comfortable and there was a fantastic view of Catbells.
The breakfast is of the highest quality with a bewildering choice of fresh fruits and cereals ,followed by a superb cooked breakfast.
John and Sue are great hosts ,friendly ,helpful and show a genuine interest in their guests .
The location is perfect providing easy access to the Lake and the Town .The added bonus of off road private parking makes this an ideal place to stay.
We will definitely be returning .

Room Tip: All rooms very good but both Kingsize rooms have stunning views .
