A group of us stayed from Friday through to Sunday and I have to say, from start to finish, this Guest House met every expectation. Lovely couple greeted us and allowed us to leave our bags whilst they cleaned and prepared the room. Clean, tidy, lovely food and a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Highly recommended. Will definitely be back.

First time away with my 6 month old dog and partner and we booked this gem by chance. Pat and Linda, were amazing and we left feeling we had made 2 new friends. The location and accommodation are excellent. We most certainly will be visiting again.

Our second visit here, a very warm welcome on arrival like a home from home! Room spotlessly clean... Breakfast was fabulous and plenty of choice even a sausage for the dog. A lovely place to stay so close to the town centre and the hosts really make you want to return.

Stayed over a long weekend hiking with friends. Excellent, helpful and friendly service. Good room and facilities, good quality breakfast, the yoghurt and fruit particularly welcome, going some way to counter-balance the full English. Handy for town. Would definitely stay again.

We have recently returned from a 2 night break at Rivendell. As soon as I spoke to Linda to confirm my booking I knew I had made the right choice.

Spent another long weekend in Keswick at the Rivendell. As always Linda and Pat were excellent hosts and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are delightful to stay in. Dogs are welcome and our own dog Buddy knows his way to the bedroom and loves the sausage treat he is given. You wont be disappointed staying here

Lovely place to stay, we spent three nights with our pet dog who was treated lovely and the owners always saved her a sausage at breakfast.
