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

Stayed at Honister House in August 2014 and was blown away at the perfect location, friendly hosts , impeccable cleanliness, and wonderful value. Keswick is a picturesque town, and Honister House is located in a prime location just outside the main strip of loud businesses. You are a 5 minute walk from beautiful Derwant Water, and seconds from restaurants and... More

What a wonderful place to stay in the Lakes! We booked fairly short notice and were surprised to find a remarkably central location, with easy parking and impressive facilities (especially the newly fitted Bathrooms and shower!). Ged greeted us when we checked in and made us feel immediately at home. The breakfast options were plentiful and both days we were... More

The Honister House is a beautiful bed and breakfast with the most lovely hosting. The breakfast service is excellent, a delicious fresh home cooked meal, and they are very conscious and accommodating to any dietary restrictions you may have. The rooms at Honister House are comfortable and clean. Catbells, the largest of the three rooms available, has a gorgeous large... More

Honister House was everything we hoped a B&B would be. It was definitely one of the highlights of our summer trip. We stayed in the room called Causey Pike. It was clean and comfortable. Carol and Ged were wonderful hosts and were very welcoming. They were helpful with giving directions in the town and recommendations for hikes. We would go... More

A lovely welcome here and you will not find better hosts anywhere. Special thanks and praise for the provision of a gluten free breakfast for my wife; not only did Carol and Jed lay in fresh bread and sausages, they had considered everything on offer and checked if it was suitable for a coeliac, The room was small but very...

Carol & Jed are the perfect hosts. Warm, welcoming and show great interest in their guests. We arrived as guests but feel that we left as friends. The room was spacious and the on-suite has been beautifully thought out. Honister House has only 3 rooms and the fantastic breakfast was served in the dining room on a communal table which... More

Location, location , location, I don't usually write reviews on here unless the quality of the service goes above exceptional and this little gem of a B&B does…. If it’s your first time or you’re a seasoned visitor to the magical place of Keswick, Honister House is the place to stay. Firstly the location is ideal, it’s right on the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Honister House has a great unique location in the heart of Keswick: in a quiet spot, but very close to the charming Market Square, the 100-year-old Cinema, the Theatre and Derwent Water lake. As we only have three guest rooms, we can cook your breakfast to order. We have lots of options and use high quality produce. We're happy to cater for special dietary needs. Our hospitality trays include filter coffee, a wide range of teas, and home-baked treats. ... more   less
