This was my first time staying at the Shemara. I had a lovely en-suite room for one. It was perfect and had a stunning view across the town to the distant hills. The room and bathroom was spotless. The en-suite looks like a later addition to the room but it has been done extremely well - solid walls and quality... More

Stayed the weekend for the Keswick beer festival . Very impressed with the owners who made you feel welcome and the accommodation was first class. Breakfast in the morning was also excellent . Would recommend this B&B .

This was my second week long stay at Shemara. It's a great place to stay - both Richard and Fon makes you feel very welcome. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, and the breakfast is excellent. I recommend this guest house.

We recently stayed 3 nights in Room 4 as a couple celebrating our anniversary and couldn't fault anything about the guest house. It was our 2nd stay here and we'll definitely be back! The room was comfortable and spacious, plenty of storage, comfy bed, lovely large bathroom and so well equipped we hardly needed to take anything with us -... More
