Linnett Hill
Ranked #7 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Linnett Hill was the ideal place to stay on our recent trip to Keswick. Andy and Mandy are the perfect hosts and they have created a beautiful B&B with as relaxing an atmosphere as you could hope to find.

We stayed in room 3 at the front of the building which has a lovely view towards Fitz Park and the hills beyond. It’s a spacious, bright room with a large bay window to take in the views.

We initially chose Linnett Hill due to the location, less than five minutes walk from all of the of pubs and restaurants in the town centre, and also the availability of secure parking which proved to be very useful, as parking in Keswick can be challenging at times. The very warm welcome and fantastic breakfast were the icing on the cake.

We can’t wait to return for our next walking trip in the Spring.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a nice view and can be made up as 2 twins or a super king-size bed

We stayed for two nights and have nothing but praise for Linnett Hill and Mandy and Andy. The room was spotless, décor fresh and the breakfast extensive. We also used the lounge and maps to plan our day and Mandy was very helpful when it came to choosing where to go and where to eat. All in all we had a great stay made even better by Linnet Hill facilities - particularly the location and the ample parking.

Room Tip: If you are very tall you may not want to go in Room 10 as although you can duck on the way up, getti...

Andy and Mandy took over this B&B in December and have obviously taken a lot of care in its re-furbishment.. They have created a fresh and attractive environment with many little extra touches that bring this B&B above the average. I particularly liked the comfortable guest sitting room which means that you don't have to hang about your bedroom when you get back in the evening. Both Andy and Mandy were great hosts, very friendly without being intrusive. Clean, comfortable and quiet with great breakfasts. Highly recommended.

Linnett Hill is an excellent B&B. Mandy and Andy have the little touches just right. Lots of maps, magazines etc for walkers, cyclists etc and local knowledge too. They are both very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and the breakfast excellent with plenty of choice. The B&B is near a bus stop, near the shops/restaurants and has a Spa right by the car park. It feels like a home from home and I wish them all the best. They are doing a great job.

We would recommend Linnett hill to anyone wanting to explore the lake district. We would love to go back and being so close to centre of Keswick made eating out easy. We appreciated being able to use Andy and Mandy's local knowledge and maps. Fresh and modern interior that was very inviting.Car parking was very useful and they catered for coeliacs!

My husband and i stayed at linnett hill for 3 nights and from start to finish we enjoyed every minute the B&B has to be the best we have stayed at for location, parking, very comfortable rooms and everything you can think of Mandy and Andy have thought of already. We would highly recomend Linnett Hill and will certainly be returning.

We stayed at Linnett Hill for one night last Sunday having decided to give the place a go after seeing the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Even thought we were only there for the one night I absolutely understand why this gem of a B&B has earned the positive reviews that it has! Upon our arrival we were greeted by Mandy, who was only too happy to welcome us and give us some great advice as to where to eat and drink in Keswick. After giving us a tour of the lounge area and the breakfast room she showed us to our room, which was absolutely lovely and spotlessly clean. We had a great night's sleep - the bed was really very comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was absolutely delicious; a nice choice of cereals, fruits and pastries etc. followed by a very good full english indeed. In fact, we stayed in a spa hotel for the following three nights where the room cost us three times the price of this b&b and their breakfast was nowhere near the standard of Linnett Hill's! All in all, I honestly cannot think of a single negative about this place - it's absolutely everything you could want from a B&B and then some!

Keep it up Andy and Mandy. If everyone working in the UK tourism industry had your attitude towards it then it really would be thriving!!
