Honister House is perfectly situated near the heart of Keswick perfect for getting out and about either on foot or by car. This was my first stay in Keswick and if returning I would without doubt stay here again. I stayed in the large king room which was spotlessly clean and had a beautiful modern bathroom. Breakfast was excellent with... More

This was our second visit to Honister House and we felt even more at home than last time. With just three rooms and a communal breakfast table Carol & Ged have really created a warm and welcoming environment. Rooms are stylish and super, super clean. Breakfasts are generous and varied, the fresh fruit salad and great greek yogurt was hard... More

Keswick has tons of B&Bs. Lots of them have nice beds, nice breakfast, nice hosts etcetera. but most of them are either on a busy main road or on one the back streets lined with B&Bs so it feels a bit like Blackpool. Honister House stands apart from them, situated just on the edge of the pedestrianized area on the... More

We chose to stay at Honister House after reading some excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and were very please very our decision. Ged and Carol are excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, even offering to help us with our luggage from the car. We stayed in the largest room in the house named British... More

First of all Keswick is a great base as you have some great walks, scenery etc on your door step but a nice town with plenty of places to eat and pubs for a drink or two. Honister House is superbly located as close as possible to Market Square but not so close that you are going to get disturbed... More

It was our first time to the Lake District and Honister House (Ged and Carol) made the stay seamless for us to really enjoy taking in the trip to a really beautiful part of the country. Centrally situated to the town (right across from a tea room!) it is a pleasant short walk to the lake and right on the... More

We booked the room at Honister House quite short notice and we were happy there was a room available as it had some very good reviews on trip advisor . The bed and breakfast is centrally located just before you take a short walk to Derwent Water and is close to shops , pubs and amenities right in the centre... More

What an amazing place to stay! Little things like a generous 11 am check out and a relaxed two hour window for breakfast really helps Honister House stand out from pretty much every other B&B in Keswick if not the Lakes. With just three rooms, staying here feels a lot more personal, it really is like a home from home... More

This small and chic guest house is right in the heart of Keswick. Everything about it has been carefully thought out to give guests the most enjoyable and relaxing. Carol and Ged are really lovely, friendly hosts and make you feel very welcome with home baking treats in the room and good conversation. The rooms are spacious, well kitted out... More

My teenage daughter and I recently stayed at Honister House, and I can't say how wonderful both the place itself but also hosts Carol and Ged are. At Honister House, you get the best of a boutique hotel - really great beds, modern bathrooms, luxury linens and towels - with the best of a bed and breakfast - excellent breakfasts,... More
