Friendly hosts, delicious breakfast, lovely stay
We had a lovely stay, Pete and Katie were very friendly and the house is beautiful. The room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed and in the mornings we enjoyed delicious breakfasts with a beautiful view. We chose to stay at Link House as we were going to the Lakes Distillery and it is easily walkable from the guest house. It’s a little too far away from Keswick or cockermouth to walk into town for dinner but if you don’t want to drive there is the x5 bus which we used to go to Keswick and it stops right outside the guesthouse.

Very friendly stay
Lovely, helpful and friendly hosts. Very quiet location with a great bus service that stops right outside. Breakfast very tasty. Unfortunately bed was a bit hard for our liking. But overall a nice stay.
