I booked this hotel through late rooms at the very last minute. The room was excellent, but was caught out in as much as the bathroom was not ensuite. It pays to read carefully which room you want as the web site states Tarn Hows has five double en-suite rooms, three single en-suite rooms and one double or twin room... More

Great, fresh breakfast. The only thing that I... More

A lovely, clean and friendly B&B, close to the centre of Keswick, with parking. Our double room had a sitting area in the bay window, small shower room and tea/coffee making facilities. Friendly owners. Tasty breakfast - loved the fresh fruit, bacon and poached eggs. Great value for money.

We stayed two nights, in room #4; the bathroom was separate but private to our room. The room was immaculate and we both got a great night's sleep. There was parking onsite which is nice, because the streets were packed. Breakfast was excellent!

What a lucky find this was. I stayed for 2 nights in a single room and what a lovely little room it was. Great view from the window which was adorned with a window box full of flowers. Very nice bathroom done to a high spec. The electric shower was excellent - lots of hot water and plenty of power.... More

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
