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

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

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
