Great place to stay in the North Lakes, Just 5 minute walk to centre of Keswick and another 5 to the lake. Really good breakfast and spotless rooms. Not easy to park directly outside but you should be able to get a space on the road Top tip - don't book your theatre tickets before you arrive as they do... More

This was our third visit to the Winchester. Dawn and Ken are very good hosts. The breakfast selection is superb and the fresh fruit salad one of the best. The cooked breakfasts really set you up for the day, be sure to stay on a Sunday so you can enjoy the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, the best I have... More

I stayed at the Winchester with my sister Maria and her husband Tom on the 8th & 9th August. What a fabulous place, it was spotlessly clean and the rooms were big and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Dawn and Ken were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for them, they were so friendly and helpful. What... More

On arrival we were made to feel welcome and told about breakfast, the drying room and the no shoes/walking boots policy indoors.The drying room is a welcome addition. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless. There is plenty of storage space in the wardrobe and drawers. It was quite hot in the room even with the windows open and we felt... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, great direction given by Dawn that we don't need to walk from main bus station to the guest house. We stayed in the highest floor with the best view, comfortable bed and clean places. Really enjoyed the award winning breakfast that's really the best meal during our UK trip ! Location is perfect to... More

Accommodation very comfortable. Food and service were brilliant. The welcome received was brilliant. The overall experience of The Winchester added to the pleasure of visiting Keswick. The location of the Winchester was close enough to the town centre to be an enjoyable stroll with superb views of the surrounding hills and park.
