We would head back to Keswick in a heartbeat! This charming town with its central plaza was a pleasant surprise and our stay at Howe Keld made it even more pleasant. Walking downtown or to the lake is easy. David was friendly and helpful when it came to sites to visit, ways to get around, or places to eat. Our... More

This was our second visit to Howe Keld. We stayed in room number 4 which was clean and spacious, with a very comfortable bed and lovely views. Unlike many B&Bs in the Lakes, HK is modern and luxurious with tasteful décor. Breakfast was very good as was the service. David and Valerie were very welcoming, David helpfully guided our car...

I stayed at Howe Keld for four nights in September, 2015. The high praise in the many five star reviews on TA is fully justified. It is very beautiful, with thoughtful and practical design throughout, using fine materials, like slate and wool, often locally sourced. My room was quiet and comfortable, and beautiful in a simple way. Not a doily... More

We only stayed one night and would rate this bed and breakfast top notch. The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The quality of the furnishings and the room decor are well above average. The breakfast was also very good. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Stayed here three nights while in the Lake District, and Room 11 was exactly as shown on the website - a very spacious room with a comfy king-side bed and a seating area. It also had a large en suite bathroom. There was a bit of a view of the Fells from the windows. Note that there is no air... More

We stayed at Howe Keld in june 2015 for two nights. A lovely welcome upon arrival from the owner who helped us into the car park, which is a bit on the tight side but gave free on site parking. Lovely rooms to the front of the property, lots of oak furniture, very comfy bed and plenty of storage space,... More
