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

Very warm welcome friendly genuine owners who provide excellent accommodation and superb breakfast that will keep you walking the hills all day. I've stayed here twice & will continue to chose Tarn How's whenever I come over to Keswick

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

En route to Newcastle upon Tyne to visit friends we couldn't resist setting off a day early and spending some time in Keswick, so we did a little research on the internet to narrow down the many options for accommodation that met our criteria which included private parking. We quickly homed in on Tarn Hows and previous reviews confirmed we... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Tarn Hows, having been recommended by my parents. We have stayed at a number of B&B's in Keswick and have to say this was one of the best. It is located near the centre of town, so only a short walk to the shops and pubs. We received a very warm welcome, the... More

Had the single room for one week in October. Good breakfast and Andy is really helpfull whenever you have any question. The lake is 10 min walk away and there are a lot of good restaurants in the town (the George Hotel Restaurant is excellent).

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
