Seven Oaks Guest House
Ranked #2 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2013

This was our 4th stay spread over a period of 20 years and 3 different proprietors and whilst we have always been comfortable and made to feel welcome, I have to say that the current owners, Pam & Arthur have transformed the Seven Oaks.
The whole place has had a complete makeover, much brighter and more modern. The bedrooms are all fully en-suite (unlike our last time here) and the standard of furnishings is just one thing that is reflected in the establishments official 4* rating.
All the little things, like bottled water, chocolates and top quality biscuits in your room everyday, and a full range of Marks & Spencer toiletries just make you feel like your staying at a top flight hotel but for Guest House money, like a top boxer it punches well above its weight, amazing value.
Breakfast is as, if not more comprehensive than you will find in many top hotels, beautifully tasty full english with probably the best bacon i've ever tasted and a wide range of other options, including wonderful freshly made smoothies, just ask and it will be made for you.
Perhaps it is because like us Pam & Arthur are originally from the North East that we found their hospitality particularly welcoming, but whether you hail from the North, South, East or West you will find that they really have the "Guest House" business nailed down, give it a try and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: For just a few pounds more each per night go for the "Wainwright room", it is bigger and o...

Everyone should experience the hospitality of Pam and Arthur they will restore your faith in human kindness. From the genuinely warm welcome to their home to the heartfelt goodbye, we felt like part of the family. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was perfectly equipped and immaculately clean. The breakfast was delicious just what you need to set you up for a days fresh air. Pam and Arthur are always happy to advise on top spots to visit and recommended some fantastic places to eat. We will certainly return to seven oaks and recommend it to anyone, better service than some 5* hotels. Thanks Pam and Arthur x

We just had a single night here on our way to a wedding but it was from start to finish a lovely stay.

From other reviews we expected a warm welcome and we were not disappointed. Pam and Arthur could not have been more helpful, immediately making us feel at home, offering directions to town (only a short walk) and suggestions on where to eat.

The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a nice en-suite. Lovely little extras - sweets, biscuits and Kit-Kats in the room.

The breakfast matched everything else - fresh, perfectly cooked and made from local produce.

Apologies for accidently trying to steal our room keys - at least we brought them back in the end!

Just a note that credit cards are not accepted, but prices are very reasonable and excellent value.

If we need somewhere to stay in The Lakes in the future, we will have no need to look anywhere else. There was absolutely nothing to fault. Thank you for a lovely welcoming stay.

From the moment we arrived the welcome mat was out! Pam and Arthur were perfect hosts, helpful with local knowledge, tips and hints how best to enjoy our time in Keswick. Pams breakfasts were a joy to come down to. Accommodation clean and homely with nothing left to wish for. In fact Pam and Arthur, have you thought about adopting me! Cheers from your Aussie mates Jeannie and Lorraine

A surprise visit to the Lakes to be shared with friends and Pam and Arthur was just the best thing ever. We could not have been made more welcome, our room was first class with so many extras. Bed linen, towels etc. all first class, and to return after a long day and find everything had
been made ship shape was just wonderful. Breakfast was amazing, with cooked or Buffet available, better than many hotels I have stayed! The location is perfect and really hope we can return with our family next year.
Thank you Pam and Arthur.

Just returned from another stay with Pam and Arthur at Seven Oaks this time with two friends from Menorca on their first trip to the Lakes. It was faultless from the beautifully appointed rooms with many extras...the oft replenished sweets and biccys, the welcome tray and lovely toiletries,,,,and the fabulous breakfasts - great choice but the traditional English is difficult to resist.
The location takes some beating - really central to Keswick - my parents in their 80s could walk into the town and back! ....and for touring around.
But to top it all Pam and Arthur are consummate hosts; they make you very welcome and are so helpful. All in all impossible to resist and we have booked again for October!

Room Tip: They are all equally comfortable, room 3 is larger and could be a family room. We also like rooms 2...
