"Amazing breakfast - kept us going all day!"
We stayed for a couple of nights in the annexe which was very clean and comfortable. The welcome was warm and breakfast was really excellent. Although we slept well on the the first night when we had no one next door we were rather aware of our neighbours on the second night as the walls are rather thin and you can hear your neighbours using the loo/shower and their voices. The location is great and the parking at the back is handy, also there is free WiFi. Read less
Likes:
Warm welcome,location,cleanliness and breakfast. Also free WiFi and parking.
Dislikes:
Room 6 is comfy but if you have a neighbour you will be aware of them.

"Very nice guest house experience at Ferdene in Keswick"
This was a three-night stay in Keswick (Sep 30 - Oct 3 2014) while my wife and I self-toured the Lake District. The weather was quite beautiful during our entire time. Ferndene Guest House B&B was an excellent base of operations, with convenient parking by the property and an easy 20 minute walk into the center of Keswick and good access to the roads out of town to enjoy the region as visitors and amateur photographers.

Likes:
The Lake District of England is beautiful as is Keswick-with its lake and areas to stroll. The owner Richard and wife Christine were very welcoming and provided superb breakfasts.
Dislikes:
Our twin room was a bit small, but certainly adequate. While the shower was robust and provided plenty of hot water, the hot water tap of the bathroom sink had a weak flow.

Welcome to Ferndene, a traditional style family run guest house offering high standard, comfortable and friendly Bed & Breakfast accommodation a short stroll from Keswick town centre and a pleasant ten minute walk from the Derwent Water lakeshore with its stunning views, lake steamers and the famous Theatre by the Lake.

Dating from 1866, our large Victorian house has been comprehensively refurbished while still retaining much of its original character and, with our modern Annexe conveniently located next to our car park (providing free off road parking), has been tastefully decorated in a contemporary style throughout.

Rooms in the main house offer magnificent views of the mountains, with our top floor Suite giving a panoramic view over Skiddaw, Blencathra, Catbells and the Newlands fells. All of our bedrooms are cosy, comfortably furnished and have LCD digital TVs with teletext (and DVD in the Suite), alarm clocks, hairdryers and complementary tea/coffee trays.

Breakfast at Ferndene is served in our comfortable dining room where you can enjoy a relaxing start to the day. Our buffet has a choice of cereals, fruits, yogurts and fruit juice, followed by the famous Ferndene cooked Cumbrian breakfast and accompanied by tea or freshly ground coffee and choice of toast. Vegetarian and other options are always available on request and all ingredients and products are selected from the best locally available and Fairtrade sources.

However long your visit with us we can promise a warm welcome, a comfortable stay and Ferndene's famous breakfast to start your day. We do all we can to provide a homely feel and offer that personal service that makes your stay as pleasurable as possible.

We can help with planning your days and with suggestions for walks and excursions, offer packed lunches, secure cycle storage, drying room etc, making Ferndene the perfect base to explore this beautiful area, whether walking or just to get away from it all for a relaxing break.
Environmental Statement
At Ferndene we are privileged to live surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and we feel that holiday makers and accommodation providers have a shared responsibility to preserve these surroundings for future generations. We have introduced a variety of measures to try to reduce our and our guests environmental impact on the planet, including: Recycle as much as possible and use a wormery. Buy as much of our produce as we can locally to reduce food miles. Use low energy bulbs wherever possible throughout the guest house. All the radiators and room heaters have thermostatic controls to reduce energy wastage overheating rooms. All rooms have double glazed windows to keep guests warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. We use Fair Trade products in bedrooms and dining room wherever we can. We encourage guests to take walks that can be done from the Guest House rather than use their cars.
