Hedgehog Hill
Ranked #52 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 November 2012

I have stayed here for a weeks holiday for 8 consecutive years in a front single room with fantastic views over the fells. It is all one could want from a B and B and more! It is very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent. The location is convenient, yet quiet. The friendly and helpful welcome from Keith and Shona makes it a home from home. We are already booked in for next year.

Room Tip: The front rooms have wonderful views of the fells, but all rooms are good

Thank you to Keith and Shona, warm hospitable welcome, nice atmosphere and great breakfast (especially the sausages!)
Clean, cosy and comfortable room and fair trade products.
Great position in Blencathra street, slightly removed from the madding crowds, but close enough for a stroll into Keswick round the lake, or a more strenuous walk up a hill.
Good location for visiting the rest of the Lake District too, we ventured into Windermere and did a touristy visit to Beatrix Potters house at Hill Top. Very inspiring.
The sun even came out and showed the lake district in all its autumnal splendour.
Lovely weekend break, as Arnie said...we'll be back....

Had a lovely break in this cute B&B, lovely breakfasts, comfy beds, and friendly and helpful hosts, who did everything they could to make our holiday a great one.
Views onto Skiddaw from the front rooms, and the dining room really lovely too.

We spend a few nights at this very comfortable, clean and welcoming bed and breakfast. We had a room at the front with a fantastic view of the fells over the geranium flowers! Superb location for walking into the town or to Derwent Water or the local arboretum. The individual breakfasts set us up for some lovely days out. Thank you Keith and Shona - and best of luck for the future.

I look forward each year to returning to Hedgehog Hill. The welcome and service have been consistently very good. The breakfasts are cooked to perfection - a real highlight. My room is aways spotlessly clean. The guest house is well placed in Keswick with Shona and Keith great hosts. I have no hesitation in recommending Hedgehog Hill as a quality place to stay.

This is the second time i`ve booked at Hedgehog Hill, the first time i had an accident when i fell and injured my leg whilst fell walking and had to cancel my room as i was in hospital, these wonderful people not only put my mind at ease over the booking but gave me a full refund, amazing! Two years later and i`m back and found this delightful bed and breakfast totaly lived up to the reviews placed by others, clean well appointed rooms and lovely food, well done Keith and Shona, i`ll be back.

I picked this place for the name and I was so happy I did. This was my first time there and I will definitely be back! Shona and Keith are super friendly and make fantastic breakfast. =) The single room was taken so they gave me a double at a terrific rate. The room was perfect and I had a wonderful view of the garden. They also supply materials for walks or other fun things to do around the area. You are also close to everything so walking is the great way to travel.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and will be staying there every time I visit Keswick. I recommend Hedgehog Hill to everyone. You will be pleasantly surprised.
