Clarence House is an attractive, high quality B&B. The rooms are very comfortable and plenty of draw and cupboard space. The breakfasts are plentiful and tasty. Richard is very helpful with advice on route planning and local restaurants. The atmosphere is friendly and genuine hospitality. Highly recommended.

Beautiful guest house run by the beautiful hosts at the beautiful town, Keswick. We were kindly welcomed and breakfast was fabulous. We can feel that the hosts are really caring and do their best to keep the guesthose at the best quality. It was worth a trip from South Korea.

We stayed one night in Keswick in June and would have loved t have stayed longer. The house is lovely, the rooms were comfortable and attractively furnished, and Richard is a friendly and gracious host. Parking was easy, right on the street in front. It is a short walk down to the center of town and the lake. Keswick is... More

Clarence House has got to be my favourite B&B in the whole country. The rooms are spotless and tastefully decorated and just Ouse quality. Richards knowledge of the Lake District is first class, especially those looking to discover the area, be it walking, cycling or visiting places of interest. Karen serves a fabulous hearty full English breakfast to set you... More

My wife and I have recently returned from a lovely 2 night stay at Clarence House. Our double room was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The en-suite was of a very high standard with a strong hot shower, and the comfortable bed ensured a great nights sleep. The full English breakfast was beautifully cooked and a real treat, with plenty... More

My first visit to this lovely B & B, I would highly recommend it to all my friends and family. The owners are friendly without being intrusive, the breakfast was the best I have ever had in any hotel I have stayed. I parked the car and walked everywhere as it is so close to the centre of Keswick.

My husband and I have just spent the weekend at Clarence House for the first time and will most certainly be returning. It is 'perfect'. The décor and furnishings are beautiful.
