Honister House is excellently located on the edge of the town centre and only five minutes walk from the lake. Ged and Carol were very welcoming hosts, and the room was spotlessly clean, bit small but adequate for a short stay. There was only one shared table for breakfast however we would have personally preferred separate tables. We would stay... More

This is the second time that we have stayed at Honister House, but the first time under Ged and Carol's management. And what management! Not only are there all the facilities that you would hope for, such as well placed bins and excellent breakfasts, but it's all the little personal touches that made it for us. The toiletries are a...

We spent three nights with Carol & Ged at Honnister House recently and loved it. They were so friendly and accommodating. Their home is immaculate and their breakfasts, delicious! It had not been my first choice when looking for a place to stay in Keswick, but it is now our favorite!

Having just returned from a visit to Honister house I would definitely recommend it as an excellent place to stay! The hosts Carol and Gled were impeccable and make us feel welcome during our stay and were very helpful. Our double room was delightful with facilitates to make your own tea/coffee and home made cookies/cakes. Could not fault!

At Honister House we found every bit the sublime and delightful English countryside/Cumbria experience we were hoping for and actually much more. Along with my wife and some friends we ended up taking all of the three rooms here and were treated like family by Carol and Ged, who are impeccable hosts. Upon arrival, I was bowled over to find...

We recently stayed at this lovely B&B and will certainly be back. The layout of the rooms was perfect for a family as the twin and double could be locked as a unit. The breakfasts were amazing and Ged and Carol were happy to accommodate any requests. It is the little personal touches like the homemade cookies in the rooms... More

We last visited Honister House in 2010 and gave it good review. We were fortunate enough to visit again recently and were not disappointed. the new owners take great care of their guests and ensure that you enjoy yourself. They are always on duty as was shown during the recent power cut in Keswick - they were soon round offering... More

I booked a surprise weekend away for myself and my girlfriend so I could propose to her. We had never been to Keswick before but we had heard good reports from friends and family. We weren't disappointed. Keswick is a beautiful town right next to Derwent water with picturesque surroundings and plenty of pubs and shops to keep you occupied.... More

While traveling through the U.K. this summer, we decided to take a detour to the Lake District and came upon The Honister House. This b&b, as well as the town of Keswick, was like something from a movie! Cozy, quaint, friendly, warm, everything you expect from a bed and breakfast in the English countryside. First of all, Honister House is... More
