I wanted a single room with en-suite and off-street parking, so I tried Tarn Hows, which had five nights available, and had a great holiday. Janet and Graham are so friendly and welcoming. Single rooms can be very small but this was big enough for me to be comfortable (I'm 6ft 2in tall, by the way) and had ample storage... More

We have just returned home from a fantastic week in Keswick made even better by staying in this wonderful guest house. The rooms were so clean with excellent toiletries available. We stayed in room 2 which had it's own private bathroom which I much prefer to en-suite facilities. Parking was at the rear of the guest house. Our room was... More

We had booked 3 single rooms for 1 night as part of a team doing the 3 Peaks Challenge over consecutive days. We finished Ben Nevis at about 4 and were on the road from Fort William by 4 45. I phoned ahead to Tarn Hows to let them know a rough time of arrival; it was going to be... More

I have just stayed here for 2 nights 3/7/14. I had a single room on the top floor at the front. I was able to sleep with the window open on both nights as the area is very quite, it may change slightly at weekends. My room was clean an comfortable as were the bathroom. I thought the breakfast were... More

My son and I stayed here for 6 nights. I have never stayed in such a spotless and impeccably and attractively decorated B& B. The bedrooms are beautifully done and the bathrooms excellent. There is off-street parking (in Keswick this is a must), it is just a few minutes walk to the town centre and the breakfasts are superb. The... More

In the past two years we have had four long weekends here...and we are returning in Autumn. We have two single rooms - always beautifully presented. The hosts, Graham and Janet are superb - nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are as hearty or healthy as you could ever wish - all freshly prepared. We would strongly recommend it... More

I have just got back from a 2 night stay to take part the Karrimore Great Trail Run which took place in Keswick. I booked Tarn Hows after reading the good reviews and was not disappointed. I stayed there with a friend where we occupied two single rooms. My single room on the second floor at the back, whilst on... More

Over the bank holiday we stayed at Tarn Hows in Keswick. The owners were the best hosts I have ever stayed with. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts were helpful and obliging. It was extremely tidy and clean I would recommend it to anyone.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this excellent guest house. Stayed in single room 11, which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. First class breakfasts if you can eat it all, but any combination is no problem for the friendly and obliging owners. Off street parking is a bonus.
