“Training Day Mountain Awareness”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Drove up from the South Coast, managed to park in the street quite close, Shona was very welcoming for my check in, single room as it said on the website, very clean and tidy shared bathroom, never saw the other guest. Breakfast was excellent both days

Room Tip: I think you'll find they are all good

We stayed for just one night at Hedgehog Hill on our way back from Scotland to continental Europe. We didn't have any booking but Mrs Wiggle had no problem to accomodate me and my daughter. The room was perfectly clean and the bathroom had everything that we could need. The full English breakfast was great, and it's always great that a vegetarian option is provided.
I will definitely be back next time I'm in the Lake District, and will hopefully stay there more than ne night.

I stayed in a second floor single room with shared shower room/toilet. I had a wonderful week. The house is beautiful and absolutely spotlessly clean with deep soft carpets. My room was spacious with nice bedding and thick fluffy towels. The view was stunning. Washing/toilet facilities were shared with only one other single room so there was never any problem and they were clean, roomy with a good hot shower. Breakfast really was a highlight, freshly cooked and piping hot, the mushrooms were fantastic. Keith and Shona are wonderful hosts, approachable and friendly. The location is perfect, in a quiet street but within very easy walking distance of Keswick High Street. I had a lovely stay and can heartily recommend Hedgehog Hill as a great place to stay and extremely good value as well.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a single room, I don't know what room 3 is like but room 6 is lovely and...

We stayed 3 nights at Hedgehog Hill. We had not been to the Lake District before and Shona and Keith were very helpful in giving us some tips for restaurants and walks. The House is very clean and tidy and the breakfasts are very good with a good choice. Very close to town, a 5 minute stroll. A very good place to stay if you are visiting Keswick.

Brilliant breakfast, charming hosts, very clean room. Couldn't be better. Third time staying here. Equally good as a solo traveller and with family. Close to town and many great walks. Highly recommended!

we were very lucky to get in here as they had just had a cancellation.We decided last minute to go to Keswick for the weekend but had not realised that the beer festival was on that weekend. What a lovely place to stay. The room was very clean and had the usual tea/coffee making things but there was also biscuits.The shower was very good with lots of little extras. Breakfast was wonderful and although you may ask for the full breakfast they are not rigid with this and will try to please everyone i.e. extra sausage or whatever.

Room Tip: all rooms seem to have wonderful views of the fells

Excellent Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Keswick. Superb, consistently high quality breakfasts cooked to perfection. The ensuite room was very clean with everything we needed. Tea, coffee and gorgeous fair-trade biscuits restocked daily. Comfy bed and magnificent view of Skiddaw from the room. Hosts were attentive, approachable and helpful. Daily weather printout was useful. Very close to the center of Keswick where there are plenty of shops and pubs! Thank you.
