We have stayed in this gem of a hotel twice and have always been astonished by how immaculate and beautiful it is. But best of all, David and Valerie are genuinely friendly and always happy to help. No question or problem is too much for them. Jet-lagged as we are on arrival, we always feel at ease and pampered. I... More

Our room was perfect, cosy with a very comfy bed, super clean with an outstanding view from our window. David and Valerie were very friendly and helpful hosts and the breakfasts were first class. Can highly recommend Howe Keld.

Howe Keld was a true gem! Keswick itself is such a beautiful town, and Howe Keld represents the best it has to offer! Our room was so spacious and comfortable. The bedding is so cozy you want to stay in bed all day. Bathroom roomy with large shower, warming rack and pleasant smelling lotions and creams. We appreciated the coffee,... More

Wow! Truly stunning location with gorgeous views from the bed. Very quiet and peaceful. Easy walk to nice little town with loads of pubs and shops. Loved the room for 3 (couple with 5 year old son). Beds are crisp and comfortable with coffee/tea making in room. Beautiful gourmet breakfast. David is wonderful host. Very welcoming. Really enjoyed it.

We usually prefer hotels and not the more casual or intimate nature of a B&B, but this was the best blend possible to the two styles. En suite rooms, a key to the house so we could come and go at will without worry of waking someone or adhering to a curfew, and comfy accommodations. the shower was great and... More

This is hands down one of the most well run B&Bs I have stayed. It still retains the warmth and coziness of a B&B, but its amenities are really modern and top class. From the wonderful bathroom with showers and baths that have the right water pressure, to beds that are super comfy, amenities are even better than some top... More

There was a massive choice for breakfast which was delicious very very close to the high street which was ideal.... More
