Loved it! Quality bedding, hot shower, terrific breakfast and brilliant hosts. Richard is a mountain leader and his son George is a member of the Mountain Rescue Team, there's not much they don't know about the Lake District! They are always happy to advise on routes and Karen's breakfasts are perfect. We'll be back!

There are lots and lots of new walks for you to try so please do come back and visit us again. Best Wishes Karen... More

It was lovely to return to Clarence House again and really sweet that Richard and Karen remembered us from our first visit in 2014. The weather was not kind to us during our weekend in Keswick but Clarence House was warm, welcoming and comfortable. The breakfast was every bit as good as we remembered and Richard again helped us with... More

Stayed at Clarence House in January. Lovely characterful house with a warm welcome from Richard. Our room was at the back of the house and was very clean with good quality furniture and soft furnishings. There was a decent size radiator in the room & a portable oil one. We were actually quite chilly in the room as the radiator... More

Such a lovely place to stay! A great location only 5 minute walk from Main Street and we were able to park outside. The house was wonderful, our room was spotlessly clean and had a very comfortable bed very welcome after our long walk around the lake! A great breakfast and warm, welcoming hosts. Would heartily recommend! Thank you Richard,... More

We stayed two nights in late December and had a fine experience, from the warm welcome and comfortable room to the delicious breakfast. Not forgetting Alfie, the friendly dog. We will return. The only small downside is that the on-street parking can be a challenge.

We've stayed in at least a dozen B&Bs in and around Keswick over the years and have never been disappointed, the standard is really high. Clarence House is one of those really nice, typically Keswick, terraced villas in a nice central location with a mixture of guest houses and private residences only 5 mins from the centre of town.
