“Walking in Keswick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2012

We are determined walkers and try and find Hotels close to the good walks but also with plenty to do. Parkfield is great , close to the town and a great base for a range of walks. The guest house is kept to an exceptional standard and the welcome is great. Breakfeast was served by John a knowledgeable walker which always helps . Highly recommended

Room Tip: Suite rooms are superb !!!

We've just returned from a 3 night stay at Parkfield and can only re-iterate all the comments made by the other reviewers. A beautifully decorated, clean, welcoming place to stay run by very hospitable hosts and wonderful breakfast choices (fresh fruits/cereals/juice/full breakfast). John and Susan are warm & helpful (with good sense of humour) and the location is perfect - in a quiet spot, yet convenient for everything and great to be able to park up your car in their car park at the back and leave it there for the duration of your stay.
Look forward to returning (...if only to check John's progress on the dog-handling course ! Lol ! )

Room Tip: The bigger rooms at the front are huge and overlook the park

We have recently returned from a two night stay at Parkfield guest house.
We had a large front facing room overlooking the park with great views of the mountains opposite the guest house.The bed was a large king size and very comfortable , and we had a lovely spacious seating area to have a cup of tea and to enjoy the views .Room was bright and clean and with lovely pictures and mirrors on the walls.
Breakfast was very enjoyable with a superb fresh fruit salad and lots of other choices as well as cereals , yoghurts etc then there is a full cumbrian cooked breakfast prepared freshly for you, ideal for our walking days !
Parkfield is situated very near to the lake, Theatre, town and a good base for walking and sightseeing but is very quiet and peaceful especially at night. We were also very glad of the parking to the rear of the house as it can be an issue in Keswick ..
John and Sue are very hospitable and willing to help in any way they can with walks, eating ideas etc nothing was too much trouble .

A lovely placed guest house situated within Two minutes walk from shops and restaurants. Superb breakfast and lovely hosts made our stay a joy. We will be returning again for sure.Parking for my motorcycle was a nice added bonus . We will return for sure in the near future.

Stayed 2 nights at Parkfield over weekend.... Ideally located - close to both the Lake & the Town Centre. Parked our car up for the weekend on the 'off street' car park & let our feet do the walking. This B&B is spotlessly clean & tastefully decorated, and the hosts John & Susan are very welcoming & the breakfasts were excellent...can highly recommend it.

Just returned from a two week stay in this delightful guest house.From the moment you arrive at the neat and tidy front entrance to the king sized bedroom with views to die for,and a warm welcome from John an Sue you know you have hit the jackpot!! Fab breakfast served by John in his usual friendly manner and superbly cooked by Sue.Wonderful position ,a stones throw from the town centre. Close to the lake,park and attractions. when speaking with other guest who have been many times before you will need to book early. A gem in this beautiful area,cannot recommend to strongly

Back from a 2 night weekend stay , our first visit to Parkfield but definitely not our last. The b&b is small with excellent friendly hosts Susan & John who couldn't do enought for us. The room was lovely & modern with an excellent shower room and lovely toiletries. The cooked breakfast was freshly made, traditional and with plenty of choice of fresh fruit and cereals. It even has parking and is in a quieter part of Keswick next to the golf course, close to the lake and only a 2 minute walk into town. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All of the rooms we could see we're lovely, but the two king size rooms at the front were bigger...
