Dorchester House is situated only a short walk from the town centre and the beautiful Derwentwater. Keswick is a very nice town to explore the Lakes from. We felt very welcome in the B&B, Dennis and Anne are very friendly and welcoming people. The breakfast was lovely! Dennis does a very nice cooked breakfast and Anne makes her own jams...... More

Less than five minutes from the centre of Keswick, but located in a quiet side street, Dorchester House is an excellent base for a stay in the Lake District break.

My husband and our 21 year old daughter stayed two nights at this lovely B and B. The hosts, Anne and Dennis, were welcoming, charming, and served a delicious breakfast. The room was spacious and clean and the location was perfect. My husband's only complaint was that the shower stall was a little "cozy". Would love to go back soon.

A party of 11 of us stayed at The Dorchester for the beer festival weekend and Anne and Dennis were excellent hosts. Made to feel really welcome, fantastic breakfast and rooms absolutely spotless. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Our stay here in May was brief but the owners made us very welcome. The room though small had all the facilities needed. The home made jams and fresh fruit salad at breakfast were a highlight. On road parking available.

Dorchester House delivered everything my friends & I required during our brief stay. A central location, clean & comfortable rooms, a hearty breakfast each morning, value for money and sound advice from the friendly owners. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this delightful B&B.

Little gem of a B&B within very short walk to Keswick town, shops and restaurants. Anne and Dennis were so welcoming and the little extras made it just a perfect stopover. Breakfast was a perfect start to a day in the lakes
