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

I can’t fault anything at this lovely B&B, its location, rooms, breakfast and the friendly & helpful owners all contribute to an amazing experience. Howe Keld is brilliantly tucked away from the crowds yet only 5 minutes’ walk from both the town centre and the lake. Rooms are spacious with all the comforts you could ask for. Breakfast was to...

Stayed here with in August for 2 nights in Bay Window Room 4. Absolutely spotlessly clean, bed was really comfortable and room spacious. David and Valerie were very welcoming and breakfast was spot on. Would definitely recommend and will be staying here on our next visit.

Warm reception by David, valet parking by him too (as the parking is tight in back), fantastic choices for breakfast including vegetarian options. Supremely comfortable bed, lovely room and 4 piece bathroom with great local bath products. Hotel is super clean and... More
