Keswick is our favourite town in the lakes! We have stayed at this B&B many times and we always feel at home! The hosts are an absolute delight and the rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy. The town centre is only 5 minutes away and there is plenty of parking in the nearby streets. Can't recommend it enough!

Our second stay at this lovely B&B, we are regular visitors to Keswick. Again really clean, warm and welcoming. Sandra & Peter are great hosts and lovely people. Breakfast is tasty with something available for everyone. 5 minute walk into Keswick centre, very central for lots of walks and lots of beer :)

From the welcome to the breakfast everything is lively about this b&b. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, modern and roomy. We have been here before a few years ago when it was under different ownership but the service has not changed! I would reccomend oakthwaite house to everybody and we will be back soon!... More

fabulous stay at Oakthwaite. The room was light, bright, airy, modern and clean and it was the biggest bed I've ever slept in! Added bonus was the free wifi. Breakfast was very tasty and there was a good selection. The hosts were very friendly and attentive but not in your face. We will definitely return.
