“Fist Class!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

One of the best B&Bs we have stayed in anywhere. Excellent room and en-suite with good quality furnishings and bedding. A first rate breakfast with quality ingredients eg sausage, scrambled eggs, home made wholemeal bread and local jams. The Eggs Benedict were wonderful.
This is all thanks to Viri and Paul who make excellent hosts- friendly, helpful, relaxed. It is like staying with old friends.
All this at a great price.
Do not worry that this B&B is ranked 35th in Keswick- you will not find better.

Damson lodge was recommended to us. It is a first class B&B in a great location, 5 minutes to town. Everything is top quality from the lovely cotton bed linen to the breakfast with home made bread and tasty locally sourced sausages. Paul and Viri are first class hosts.

We have just returned relaxed and refreshed from another stay at Damson Lodge. The location could not be better - it is in a quiet street with views of Skiddaw but is only five minutes from the centre of Keswick with its pubs, restaurants and outdoor clothing shops and ten minutes from the beautiful shores of Derwentwater.
The rooms are comfortable and always spotless. Paul and Viri are very friendly and always happy to give tips and advice about the local area and things to do. And the breakfasts are wonderful; the quality of the locally sourced ingredients really shines through. Our favourite part of the breakfast is the home made bread - so often B&B breakfasts are let down by cheap, sliced bread.
We think Damson Lodge is extremely good value for money and we will definitely be back.

Damson Lodge is never a hit-or-miss gamble. Viri and Paul consistently deliver at the highest level for a B&B stay, where a comfortable bed and superb breakfast form the bedrock of the getaway break experience. That's why we've become regulars, and why we'll be back.

Four of us, my brother, sisters and I took a road trip through England, Wales and Scotland for 16 days. We stayed at many B&B along the way, but we remember fondly Damson Lodge, it was the best one among the many places we stayed. Our 2 rooms were spotless clean, breakfast was excellent (especially the home made bread!)
Location was great, we can walk to town in 5 minutes. However, street parking is a bit hard to find, but it is the same every where in town. Our host Paula and Viri were very nice
Overall it was a great stay

We took a roadtrip through England, Wales, and Scotland for two weeks in October. We stayed at Damson Lodge in Keswick in the Lake District. Our hosts, Viri and Paul, were so kind and helpful with suggestions of places to see in Keswick as well as with dining recommendations. We enjoyed a full breakfast at Damson Lodge before we hit the road again. What a feast!

Room Tip: Damson Lodge has only three rooms. We rented all three. We had the room at the front of the house...
