Tony and Pearl were wonderful hosts. They were very sincere, thoughtful and catered to all my needs even if it was not within their usual scope of services. The room was cozy and well decorated and the bathroom was quite spacious. Overall, I was very happy to have stayed with them!

Situated in the heart of Keswick it was ideal for our walking holiday. Tony and Pearl made it feel like home from home. The room was in excellent order and the breakfast was cooked perfectly. We will be returning for more walking and will definitely be staying here again. Having our boots dried every night was a real bonus.

I had an excellent stay at the prettily decorated Avondale Guest House, owned by the warm and friendly Pearl and Tony. The room I had was clean and spotless, comfortable and inviting, and so were the common guest areas such as the lounge and the dining room. Breakfast was delicious, using high quality locally-sourced ingredients, and one had many choices....
