We have stayed at Badgers Wood many times and will continue to return. It is undoubtedly the best B&B we've stayed in in Keswick (and we've been in many). The hosts, Andrew and Anne, are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The rooms are always spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm even in the harshest Lake District condiitons. There is ample space... More

We recently returned to Badgers Wood for the third time and had another great stay. The hospitality from Anne and Andrew was fantastic as ever. Our room was clean, well maintained and tidy with a modern en-suite bathroom and all the room facilities you would expect from a decent guest house (i.e. tea & coffee, digital TV and useful information...

We booked this B&B based upon Rick Steve's recommendation for the Lake District. The location was great; within walking distance of the local shops and attractions. Unfortunately the beds were extremely uncomfortable, the breakfast was sparse and rather bland, and we felt as if we were back in a dormitory with all the rules and regulations of what NOT to...

We are at a loss to understand this review. The reviewer states that he/she stayed at Badgers Wood in July and as the review was posted on the 9 July this would mean the first week in July. Being only a six room guest house we get to know each of our guests personnaly and have also checked our bookings... More

The house is clean throughout and hosts always pleasant so, as the title says, nothing to complain about and generally you get quite good value for money here. However, Keswick is full of bed and breakfasts and I think you could easily find something equally good across the road or round the corner or next door - there is nothing... More

We were very pleased that our guest had no complaints following their short stay at Badgers Wood although we were disappointed with the overall rating given and hope that our inability to provide accommodation to the guests parents did not disadvantaged us in any way.. There are certainly over a hundred places to stay in Keswick which are rated annually... More

Why should you stay with Andrew and Anne at Badgers Wood in Keswick when every other house in this charming tourist town is touted as a B & B? The answer is that Andrew and Anne provide a personal, warm experience for their guests while managing to operate a smoothly-run, busy bed and breakfast. At the beginning of our recent... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at Badgers Wood which has been absolutely wonderful! The weather has been kind to us which always helps, but it was the place we chose to stay that really ticked all the boxes. It's in a great location near the end of a cul-de-sac (no problems with car... More

Had a good break in Keswick. We were recommended the Badgers Wood. First impression was that the room was a little on the small side but nice and clean. Car parking was fine and the location and views were very good. Price was very competitive. However would have been happy to pay a little more to have access to clean... More

We were dissapointed to see the overall rating our guest has provided. One thing we have learned from experience is that guest houses like our guests are not all the same and the real strength at Badgers Wood is our ability to cater for individual needs. Readers will be familiar with most hotel/guest house policy that asks guests to consider... More

While my room was small (single), it was well appointed and very comfortable. The hosts, Anne and Andrew, were so personable and helpful, including running to catch me at the bus stop with a book I had inadvertently left in the room. The breakfasts were great and the location superb.

We came back to Badgers Wood for another short break and once again can't speak highly enough about the place & people. Having spent lots of time in the lakes over the years we've enjoyed different styles of ammomodation B&B,hotel,self catering cottages and farm stays snd what Andrew & Anne have here is a gem. You can't get much more... More
