We have stayed at the Winchester for the last three years during the convention and the service as been great, excellent breakfast, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Dawn and Ken made us so welcome on our visits. Highly recommended.

Dawn greeted us at the door and gave us a run down of where to find places, general prices, great places to visit (it was our first trip) and general house rules. Breakfast in the morning was always great, every other lodger was really friendly and forthcoming with information. The selection of food, drinks and fruits were also really nice... More

We stayed at the Winchester guest house in mid-August for four nights. The Winchester is conveniently located for Keswick town centre, the theatre, the lake and the fells, but is pleasantly quiet. Our room had excellent views of Skiddaw and Latrigg fells which was a wonderful view to wake up to. The room was clean and comfortable ... and had... More
