Your Home from Home in Keswick, the Lake District


comfortable bedsThere is a varied choice of accommodation at Pitcairn House with 8 individually furnished rooms spread over the 3 floors. On the first and second floors we have an en-suite twin room, an en-suite family room with 3 single beds (or can be a Superking double and single), an en suite Feature double room with King size bed plus 2 other en-suite double rooms. Up on the top floor we have 3 more doubles but these have shared facilities. Although not en-suite the shared facility rooms enjoy some of the best views from the house looking towards the mountains of Skiddaw, Walla Crag and Cat Bells. The rooms all have a sink but share a separate shower and toilet which is directly outside the room door.

We have tried to make all our rooms warm, comfortable and inviting so all are pleasantly decorated and benefit from all modern conveniences including:

  • Controllable central heating
  • Hairdryer
  • Digital Televisions with Freeview
  • Hospitality tray
  • Free Wi-Fi access
  • Towels
  • Clock/radios
  • Toiletries (including some emergency essentials)

There is a small refrigerator available on the landing for the use of our guests which has fresh milk for your tea or coffee. Heather will also tempt you with various home baked cakes during your stay, so please just help yourself. If you need to keep any additional items in the ‘fridge please feel to do so but we cannot accept responsibility for any of them.

jugWe can provide also an iron and board should you need to smarten up for your evening out. For those inevitable wet days we have drying facilities for damp clothing, boots, hats, gloves etc. If bringing a mountain bike or road bike we have a secure yard for storage and can provide a lock for additional security if required. Please note it is not under cover.

Maps and walking guides are all readily available plus we are more than happy to give advice and guidance on various routes, places of interest and local attractions. (Some attractions offer discounts so please ask during your stay). If the is anything that we can do to make you stay more memorable please just ask and we will do our best to help.
