We stayed at the lovely Howe Keld B&B at the beginning of November for 2 nights. I've tried to book here before but couldn't get a room, when you stay here, you'll understand why. Fabulously situated in Keswick and clean, comfortable and modern you'll be warmly greeted by David and Valerie who will do whatever it takes to make your... More

I stayed here for a long weekend in mid-November and was blown away. Howe Keld is a great place to stay and the hosts, David and Val, are very friendly and welcoming. My partner and I stayed in room 8 which was a great size with a very nice finish and a very comfy bed. Breakfast was very good with... More

Great location for both Keswick centre and only a few minutes walk away from Derwent Water. Very nicely decorated single room in the attic, with double bed, really comfortable and plenty of space. Good touches such as locally sourced furniture and lovely smelling shower products. Enjoyed the chocolates and the biscuits- only suggestion is that perhaps there could have been... More

Got to know about the place thru a telegraph article. The location is very near the town centre. Rooms are very good and clean. Breakfast is great and they have catered for vegetarians too!!!! I'm one. Overall we had a very good experience and would recommend it to any and everyone.

Owner, David, was friendly, accommodating to our requests, and informative as well as the rest of the entire staff. Location perfect, breakfasts superb, room was stellar (clean, modern, well thought out for travelers & their needs, ample size, comfortable). We were recommended to stay here by our Canadian friends and were not disappointed. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for 2 nights in July and wish it had been longer. Our room was number 9, beautifully appointed and spotless. Bathroom included a bath tub and separate shower. David and Valerie were great hosts. Lots of choices for breakfast, if you are getting weary of the full English. There are lots of tour books and maps in... More

Great location for the northern Lake District for hiking and exploring. The rooms are modern, clean, generous in size and full of modern character with beautiful woods and thoughtful decor. What brought the Howe Keld up to 5 stars was the friendliness and helpfulness of David and Valerie. We wanted quintessential Lake walks and their recommendations were spot on from... More

Bed and Breakfast with 4 star rooms, the new ones as good as any major hotel. The bug design on the wallpaper is eccentric, but works (and if it rains when you stay, you can count the bugs). Let me rephrase - it's seriously tasteful, there is water supplied without using plastic bottles and destroying the planet on the way... More

Had the most wonderful couple of nights stay at Howe Keld. It is located just a few minutes walk away from the lake at Derwent Water, as well as the shops and cafes/restaurants in the centre of Keswick. The room was decorated beautifully (the wallpaper was fabulous!) with great views from the front of the house across to the fells,... More

We have visited Howe Keld several times before. On this occasion we stayed for two nights in September 2014 in room 5 and could not have chosen a better place to stay. David and Valerie are great hosts always welcoming, helpful, very warm and friendly. Spotlessly clean rooms and very comfortably. Breakfast was brilliant with lots of variety and all... More
