We were extremely lucky to find a guest house in Keswick that could accommodate our party of ten single men. However, Pat and Lin were happy to take us in a mixture of twin and single rooms - mostly en suite. The house is lovely and our hosts were very friendly and managed to meet all our diverse needs with...

We stayed for five nights in room 5, everything was perfect. We were given a warm welcome by Pat and Linda and shown directly to our room. We were able to park directly outside and because of the central location there is no need to move the car again. Lots of fells to be climbed in the immediate vicinity and...

A few friends decided to organise a weekend away in the Lakes so we booked Rivendell Guest House for eight of us. We got three twins and two singles. The B&B was superb! nice and clean, warm and the breakfasts were great. Pat & Linda were excellent hosts, always with a smile on their face and a friendly word. Rivendell...

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at Rivendell last October 2016. We enjoyed our stay and have now made plans to return this October 2017 for 3 nights. The room was very clean with a nice shower. For breakfast we had a good selection of cereals and a cooked breakfast too. The owner helped us get the...

Had a lovely two night stay in Rivendell with my husband and son. Despite the cold outside, the house was beautifully warm and clean and Linda and Pat were very welcoming and helpful. Great choice at breakfast time, and the food was delicious. Lovely touch of complementary water in our bedroom, something we always appreciate. Can't recommend this B&B highly...

Very comfortable, tastefully decorated. Excellent breakfasts, lovely hosts. Great value for money. Street parking is at a premium in this popular neighbourhood, but once you park up, no need to use the car again! We stayed for 2 nights in a twin room and would go back in a heartbeat!

It was the first time we have been to the lakes and we couldn't have picked a better place, it was spotlessly clean and we were made to feel right at home, even our nervous westie had no problems settling in. Nothing is too much trouble, all you have to do is ask and you get a fantastic breakfast to...

Despite the wet weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Keswick. The Rivendell was a lovely guesthouse, a real find. Such a friendly couple who made us and our dog feel very welcome. Excellent breakfast, really set us up for the day and we even got a sausage for the dog on both mornings! Rolo loved it! Will visit again...

Just got back from a couple of nights in Rivendell Guest House. Lovely, clean, comfortable and excellent breakfast. My partner had never been to Keswick before and Rivendell certainly helped towards a brilliant couple of days. Needless to say that we will be staying there again next time we go to Keswick.
