There own room and garden
Braithwaite is a delightful village just 2.5 miles from Keswick town centre.
We have a selection of pubs, a couple of grocery shops and a small church.
It is very well situated to walk the variety of mountains that we have & also close to Whinlatter Forest, which also hosts "Go Ape" for some excitement.
There is a main bus route approx. 200 metres away serving the whole of the Lake District.
Local taxi's are approx. £6 to get into Keswick town (2.5 miles away)
There is also a train station 20 miles away called Penrith, it is on the main West coast line from London Euston. From here there is a service bus directly to Braithwaite.
Julie is very friendly and welcoming. The apartment is beautiful, exceeded all my expectations. She is a professional when it comes to providing a beautiful place to stay. Everything is top quality. The furniture and decorations are beautiful. Huge walk in wardrobe and huge modern bathroom. Plenty of food for making your own breakfast. All gadgets for a comfortable stay are provided, far more than any hotel would provide. Note this is a commercial bed and breakfast and there is no kitchen. There are two eating pubs up the road where two can eat and drink for about 30gbp.
I forgot to say the bed is very comfortable and more than big enough for two people.
Julie's property was lovely - perfect for two people (great shower pressure, plenty of storage and a nice selection of breakfast and snack foods).
Julie herself was great at replying promptly to messages and texts and was accommodating when our drive from London took longer than expected.
Great area in the Lake District, with beautiful views.
We stayed at Julie's for a weekend and wished we could have stayed longer! The annex was large, with its own front door so you can come and go as you please. The space was clean and well decorated, it was a real treat to stay there. There were fluffy towels and a bathrobe which just added to the luxury factor.
The view out of the window is incredible. You are surrounded by huge hills/mountains so it felt really magical.
The continental breakfast was lovely, with plenty of food to fuel you for the day.
The B&B was easy to find and located in Braithwaite, which is just a few minutes drive from Keswick, so it was very convenient.
Last but not least, Julie was a great host. We were a few hours late arriving due to traffic but she was very accommodating. We hope to come back in the summer!
Few days to explore the Lake District where we stayed in Julie's B&B : very clean and calm. We enjoyed the house where we have found everything for a delicious breakfast. Everything was perfect : We highly recommand it without any doubt. Thanks for all. Nathalie and Marc
We stayed with Julie at her absolutely '4 star' place recently. It was sheer luxury in terms of ambience, furnishing & beautiful physical surroundings. My partner went off on a lake cruise while i wallowed in the comfort & privacy of her place watching birds in the private courtyard garden & reading a book. And most importantly having a nice afternoon nap to revive following many busy days sightseeing elsewhere. The continental breakfast was of sufficient quantity & quality to feed a person for a day, although we could not pass up the excellent pub meals in close proximity. Thank you Julie!! We will be back.
We had a great stay at Orchard Grove B&B. The room is very spacious (double the size of a regular hotel room), and spotlessly clean. There's a big comfortable bed, and a huge bathroom with great water pressure. A generous continental breakfast was provided, as well as coffee, tea and juice. Plenty of parking available. The location is excellent (about 5 minutes drive to Keswick), and there is a cafe and pub within walking distance. Julie was a warm and welcoming host. Highly recommended.
The room at Orchard Grove was huge and immaculately clean. Everything that we needed was provided including a generous continental breakfast. The location is also superb with great views to the nearby hills and makes a good base to explore the whole lake district. Keswick is only a 5 minute drive. Although we stayed only for 2 nights, we enjoyed it thoroughly and we wouldn't think twice before staying with Julie on one of our future trips.
Lovely spacious room with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Your own access gives the freedom to come and go as you please. Julie gave us a very warm welcome, and some good information about the local area. Continental breakfast was provided and was plenty to keep us going for most of the day. Short walk into the local village, and around 40 min walk in to Keswick (5 min drive). Very relaxing stay. Would highly recommend this property. Thanks Julie!
We had a wonderful time at Julie's. Her place is fantastic, the view of the hills is beautiful, and Julie is a great hostess. Everything was perfect! We would go back there any time and highly recommend the place. Thank you for the fresh bread, Julie, and wish you all the best.
A beautiful stay in a wonderful location. Orchard Grove is perfect in every sense, spacious, clean, bright, self contained, comfortable, professionally run and with every travellers need catered for in the room. The location is absolutely superb for visiting all of the lakes yet quiet of a night to ensure a good sleep in a very comfortable bed. Julie was a wonderful host and we are grateful for the hospitality and quality of accommodation. We hope to visit again and will certainly contact Orchard Grove first to check on availability.
Thanks Julie for your first class accommodation.
