“"Great short break"”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Just spent two fantastic nights at this lovely guest house, beautifully presented room spotless, great breakfast, ideal location, Deb made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We would definitely recommend the Dunsford in Keswick.

It is so nice to stay somewhere where the hosts are so genuine in their desire to ensure you have a great stay. Nothing corporate just old fashioned friendliness. Deb and Keith deserve to have a succesful business because they are proud to offer great service.
Room immaculate, great breakfast and lovely people. What more could you ask for ?

Let me tell you, you will NOT find a better B&B anywhere. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed.
The Hosts Deb, Keith & Charlotte are the friendliest people we have come across anywhere, nothing is too much bother and they go over and above the call of duty to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as it could be.

The rooms are immaculate in both decor and fittings and spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with loads of little extras such as fruit and sweets that you don't find in many other places.

The Breakfasts are the best we have had anywhere - Bar none. Loads of fresh fruit,cereals and yoghurt followed by a fantastic breakfast of locally sourced ingredients - and they are locally sourced as I have witnessed them being delivered - By LOCAL People.
So, If you are looking for accommodation in Keswick look no further than Dunsford as you will not find better and you certainly wont be disappointed.

Cant wait for our next visit.

Just had a fabulous weekend in the best b&b in keswick.Deb & Keith were the friendliest hosts we have ever come across. The moment we arrived we were given a warm welcome. The b&b is spotless, the rooms are great, lots of extras that you don't normally get in the room.The breakfast is excellent, plenty of choice and well presented. Looking forward to a return visit. Will recommended to friends.

First and foremost I wish to thank Deb and Keith for a truly lovely stay. From the moment that we arrived and were welcomed in we immediately knew that our stay was going to be an enjoyable one.

My partner had booked a two night stay as a treat for our joint Birthdays and I can guarantee he couldn’t have chosen a better place.

The whole guest house was immaculate. Our room was really tastefully decorated and well equipped. Not only did we have complimentary tea (many varieties I hasten to add!) and coffee, we had a bottle of water each (replaced the next day too!) along with hot chocolate, marshmallows and biscuits.

The bathroom is small but perfectly formed! Again, immaculate, but with all the little extras such as shampoo, shower gel, shower hat etc. The towels are so soft!

Breakfast was also brilliant both mornings. On the Saturday morning Deb presented us with our full English breakfast along with a birthday candle on each! One of many lovely touches.
We tucked into a vast selection of fresh fruit and yogurts and then a delicious fry up! There was a selection of juice, cereals, yoghurts and all sorts of condiments. The breakfast certainly set us up for our walk that morning.

The weather wasn’t ideal to say the least but this didn’t at all affect our weekend. We got (very!) wet on a walk and had to cut it short. We were greeted back at the guest house by Deb and Keith who were very helpful. A bag had been left for us to leave our ‘wet gear’ in. Deb and Keith very kindly dried our clothes. Four lots of paper later (thank you Keith!), our boots were still slightly wet, but this didn’t come as a surprise as Deb stated that we probably set the record for the wettest boots!

Upon getting back to our room, we were incredibly touched to find that we had been left a Birthday card each, a drink each (wine for me and beer for my partner) and some crisps. Where else would you get such treatment and attention to detail?

Both Deb and Keith are extremely friendly, attentive hosts and really have thought of everything. Nothing was too much trouble and it really made for a lovely Birthday break.

Again, many thanks for your hospitality. We’ve already been raving about and recommending the Dunsford Guest House to friends and family.

We look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.
