We took two rooms on this break, the luxury suite for me and the wife plus a single at the top of the house for our daughter (18). First of all location, this is in a quiet part of town opposite the church yet only a two minute stroll into the main centre....perfect. Anybody who regularly travels to the Lakes... More

The owner had previously rung us earlier in the day as there was a problem with... More

I stayed here whilst away on business, lovely location just a few minutes walk from Keswick town and has off road parking. Lovely rooms, very clean and comfortable, breakfast in the morning was lovely and fresh. Highly recommend.

Stayed for two nights and we're very happy. Paul is a real friendly host and will make sure you've got everything you need. The breakfast was excellent and there is everything you could want. The location is excellent and has parking. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thank you Paul and family.

I stayed three nights in summer 2014. My room looked out the back to the mountains. To the front would be the church. I didn't hear the church bells at all, which was one thing I was worried about as I am not a good sleeper. I slept very well, the bed was very comfortable. It was very friendly, the... More

Just your standard bed and breakfast nothing to shout about but nothing much wrong with it either small but comfy room your only going to sleep there anyway. Good breakfast no common rooms with tv and no bar. Plenty of good bars in town.

There are so many choices of places to stay in Keswick that choosing one can become a bit overwhelming. Well fear not, if you're looking for somewhere that's reasonably priced, has car parking, a friendly welcome, comfortable rooms with good water pressure in the shower (I hate those water savers where the water dribbles out) and the bonus of being...

As frequent visitors to the Lake District to pursue our love of walking my wife and I decided to "push the boat out" and spend a weekend in Keswick. After browsing through the many Bed and Breakfast options we finally decided on the Strathmore Guest House! What a smart move that was. On arrival we were met by Paul (the... More
