As ever their service is... More

Small B&B just out of the main square area in Keswick. Its a Victorian building and access isn't easy with steps to the front of the building and a pretty tight staircase up to the rooms. Well worth it though as it is a fantastic place to stay. Carol & Ged were generous and welcoming hosts who found the right... More

We stayed with Ged and Carol for three nights and felt throughly spoiled. A lovely hot bubble bath after a very wet and windy walk, accompanied by Carol's cake and a book Ged lent me after discovering a mutual love of The Archers, made for a perfect stay! Breakfast was great with fresh fruit salad each day and nothing was... More

These guys are great hosts. The rooms were comfortable and the home baking was fantastic. Breakfast was delicious. My god the pillows were so comfy!! We will definitely come back to honister house. We were a little unlucky with the major floods but hey that's Mother Nature. Had a great time. Thank you.

We have just visited Honister House for the second time this year and it was more like visiting friends than checking into a B&B. We can't speak highly enough of this place. Ged and Carol are fantastic hosts and will make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We love staying in the Belle & Sebastian room with the... More

We stayed at Honister House in the 'Belle & Sebastian' room for 3 nights from Sunday 25th October. It was our fourth stay since Jed and Carol took over and it remains our favourite in the Northern Lakes! We were thoroughly spoilt with a vegan breakfast (not obligatory for carnivores!) and home-baked cakes to welcome us in the room. Fresh... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Honister House. Ged and Carol are very friendly and hospitable. Room was lovely with a modern updated bathroom. Breakfasts were great as were the homemade cakes.
