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

Great B and B we come back each year, the rooms are very clean, the breakfasts fab, the managers very helpful . We walk and cycle and it is very convenient. Parking is off road which is an advantage as the strests around area u sty.

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
