As a family of 4 (2 young children) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Winchester and absolutely recommend it. The owners were lovely and welcoming and they made our stay a pleasure. They paid particular attention to making sure our children felt comfortable and we really appreciated the extra mile. We also have to mention the amazing breakfasts, one... More

We have stayed at the Winchester on many occasions and always have a warm and friendly welcome from Dawn and Ken . Would highly recommend this guest house which is close to town centre and is worth staying for Ken's breakfasts alone. Spotless establishment

Keswick is abound with B&B's but it was still hard for us to find a place to stay as it was a busy week at the end of the summer. I looked at the Winchester website and also reviews to help with our decision, the photos looked good and reviews positive. We managed to get a room we wanted and... More

Spent a pleasant weekend recently with my son at the Winchester in Keswick. We were given a warm reception from Dawn and Ken. Both were charming and informative of the local `things to do, places to see`. As for breakfast-to die for! The establishment is spotless and very professionally run. Well worth a return.

Where do I begin, I love this B&B for its sheer value and friendliness of its proprietors Dawn and Ken. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and inviting with comfy beds and crisp bed linen. After a good nights sleep you wake to meet a breakfast fit for any hill walker, Kens beans are great. Check it out on the... More

We visit Keswick on a regular basis and always stay at The Winchester. We first stayed here about five years ago but Dawn and Ken are such friendly and welcoming hosts that we would'nt think of staying anywhere else in Keswick! Nothing is too much trouble for them and Ken's breakfasts are legendary!! The rooms are very clean, the beds... More

The room was excellent, it was so clean you could practically see your face in the skirting boards. The couple who run this establishment (Dawn and Ken) are so welcoming, and are genuinely interested in your excursions for the day... offering helpful suggestions and recommendations of places to see and establishments to eat in. The breakfast at the Winchester is... More
