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

Spent 3 nights at Tarn Hows with my brother to visit the area, walk and generally unwind. Found the rooms very comfortable, well presented, spotlessly clean and had the best nights sleep in a while. Wifi works well. Hosts were welcoming and helpful from start to finish and the breakfasts well cooked with plenty of choice. My brother recommended the... More

We've just spent 3 nights at Tarn Hows. Lovely room, warm and comfortable and looks fresh and clean with quality bedlinen and accessories. Nice modern bathroom, spotlessly clean with soft towels and toiletries. Excellent cooked breakfast kept us going all day when out walking, but there was a choice if you wanted something else. Situated close to the town centre... More

Just returned after a over night stay and could not fault this place, from the minute we got there the hosts were very welcoming. They upgraded us at no extra cost as they had a room free. The rooms were lovely and clean and the breakfast was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. There was free parking and the... More

My recent stay at Tarn Hows was excellent. My single room was very nice, spotlessly clean and had all the extras such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, toiletries. The hosts (Janet and Graham) are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts and juices and the full English was superb. The... More

My partner and I booked a little getaway to the lakes and stayed at this lovely B&B. The hosts were warm and friendly and always checked to see if we were ok at breakfast. The room was quite small but was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Would recommend this B&B and will stay again next time we're in... More
