This was our 3rd visit to Keswick but our first to Allerdale House. Booked our 3 night stay direct with the owners after reading the excellent tripadvisor reviews and wasnt dissapointed at all.We are not really avid guest house visitors and normally opt for hotels because of the larger areas with bars, restaurants etc and if you are not familiar with bed and breakfast accomadation then it may be a bit of a shock but this just wasnt the case here. I mirror everything that has already been said especially about the spotless cleanliness and the excellent home cooked breakfasts.
The owners are great and help out in every way possible without invading your private space. The location is fantastic, 5 minutes walk into the centre of the town, plenty of pubs (all were packed every night), pub food is great without spending silly prices, dont go home without trying The Oddfellows Inn giant yorkshire pudding filled with cumberland sauasge, chips and peas, absolute fantastic and £5.95!!!!
The parking is a great advantage at Allerdale House purely because the parking is quite horrendous around Keswick town centre, all side streets are rammed all day every day so it was great not to have to fight for a parking space. We had room 1 which was very large, beautifully decorated and spotless. Tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water are provided free of charge in the rooms and wine glasses are also provided if you want to take wine back to your room.
Keswick is one of my favourite weekend destinations and will be back soon, and staying at the Allerdale will be a definate. They havent been awarded the best small accomadation at the Keswick in bloom competition for 2 years for nothing..........
