Forget any preconceived ideas about B & B's. Tarn Hows is fantastic. Janet and Graham go out of there way to meet every need. One example, on returning from a walk in the rain they will dry your wet gear. The breakfasts are outstanding. If going to Keswick and needing a B & B, not staying at Tarn Hows would... More

As soon as you entered Tarn Hows you could see just tell you were in a quality guest house. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, tidy and looked very homely. Janet and Graham were the perfect hosts and were welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked and certainly kept us going till teatime. This guest house is just a... More

Review by Ian @ Peter Sterling - Stayed here with friends for three nights - greeted by our hosts Janet and Graham, who, quite obviously, enjoy running this bed and breakfast and building a rapport with their guests. Car parking is available at the rear of the premises. Our room, although small, was clean, neat and tidy with coffee and... More

I visited at the beginning of June 2015 as a photographer looking for a base to explore the surrounding lakes. Janet and Graham were very friendly and I could come and go at all hours of the day with no problems. The breakfast was excellent and they accommodated any requests I had. I only needed a single room, but as... More

Tarn Hows is the perfect place for rest and a good breakfast after a walk in the Lake District.It is ideally suited for my annual trip as there are 4 blokes who want 4 single rooms. All this and just a 5 min walk to the town centre of Keswick

My third visit in eight months. As before, I value the off-street parking, the cleanliness, the comfortable room, the excellent breakfasts and the location - only a short walk from the centre of Keswick but far enough out to be quiet. But best of all is the warm and friendly welcome from Janet and Graham. Thank you and see you... More

A super guest house a few minutes walk from the town centre. We received a warm and sincere welcome and we loved the atmosphere. Always attentive and never obtrusive. Our room was immaculately clean and tastefully furnished and decorated in a style to suit the period building. We couldn't fault it and will definitely stay again (if our friends haven't... More
