Reviewed 29 September 2013

This was all good. The whole B&B was clean, warm and welcoming. We only met Deb (one of the owners) but she was totally helpful and it was a joy to stay here.

Breakfast was excellent, just what was needed in advance of a days walking. Well done Deb.

This was our 4th visit in 3 years at Dunsford and we thought it was about time we wrote a review although we really wanted to keep it a secret ! Debbie and Keith are fantastic hosts and cannot do enough for their guests. The rooms are comfortable and scrupulously clean and full of little treats, you will find little bowls of sweets and biscuits, fruit and water in the room. The breakfasts are superb with the usual choices available, the quality and standard of food is exceptional.
A stay here offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and we cannot wait to return.

This is a lovely Bed and Breakfast, close to shops and restaurants. The people really look after you and make you feel very welcome. The breakfast is really nice.
The rooms are very clean and beds very comfortable.
We stay here every time we go to Keswick if its available.
I would definately recommend anyone to stay here

This B&B has received fabulous reviews and from our experience I think it's because the owners go to great lengths to ensure their guests receive that little bit extra then they would elsewhere. Four of us stayed just one night but the wonderful experience will stay with us for a long time. We were given a warm welcome by Debbie and the first thing that struck me was her friendliness followed by the clean and fresh smelling rooms. We were given drinks, cake and biscuits on arrival and encouraged to sit and relax after our long drive to Keswick - where else would you get that!! The en-suite bedrooms have more little treats then you expect to receive and the breakfasts are freshly cooked and quality ingredients used.
It really is a little gem perfectly situated near the high street for shops and also near picturesque farmland and country pubs.
Thanks for a lovely stay and for our birthday presents Debbie, my brother and I enjoyed our chocolate treats on our way to Edinburgh.

During a difficult time for our family we decided to get away for a few days and travel to the lakes, we used Keswick as our base and traveled around from there, we stayed at this guest house after reading the reviews in this site and we are delighted we did! The hosts are amazing people who are only too happy to help, nothing was too much trouble, the room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious, the high standards at this guest house are noticeable as soon as you walk through the door, we will definatly be staying here again and again, thank you Deb and Keith for your kindness during this difficult period and we hope your guest house is a big success for your family. Hopefully see you soon Steve & Ange

As with most things, it's not the facilities that make the B&B, it's the hosts. Deb, Keith, and their daughter Charlotte were wonderfully friendly. Deb gave me perfect local shortcuts to get up Latrigg Fell (despite the blowing rain) and we chatted quite a bit about Keswick in general. Just wonderfully friendly people. Dunsford House is perfectly located (with a small car park around back!) just 2 minutes' walk from the Moot Hall and the heart of Keswick. When we go back, we'll stay here again.

Even though we were only staying one night in Keswick, Deb and Keith made us feel extremely welcomed. We arrived earlier than they expected and they had just stepped out--but their wonderful daughter, Charlotte, checked us in, showed us our room and gave us directions and recommendations of where to eat and what to see on our short stay in Keswick.
Our room was very nice with a queen size bed, desk, chair, TV and sink basin in room. Toilet, small shower stall and room were all very clean.
The location is ideal-- on a charming quiet side street, but close to everything. Flower pots and benches in the front. Easy parking in the back.
Wonderful breakfast room with a good English fry and amazing fruit and granola for breakfast.
When we return to the Lakes district, we would definitely stay here again-- thank you Deb, Keith and Charlotte for welcoming us so gracefully.
