We have just returned from our first - but not last - visit to Clarence House! Richard & Karen are the perfect hosts & we felt genuinely welcomed into their home. Our room was lovely (no 5) - very quiet (important for me as a very light sleeper!). As a girly girl the extra liitle touches made it for me... More

Fantastic guest house run by such lovely people! Richard made us instantly welcome and was so helpful with places to eat, map and compass and general advice while Karen's breakfasts are second to none! Our room was not only spotlessly clean and comfortable but had those little extra touches that make your stay special! We will definitely be back and... More

Feeling the better of a two night midweek break in beautiful Keswick. Endorse all previous comments about Clarence House, and the charm and efficiency of its hosts. Bonus points from me for fresh fruit salad and vanilla yogurt at breakfast- berries for breakfast always get my vote. I found the bed and cotton bedding particularly comfortable too and had the...

Karen & Richard are just so lovely. From the moment we made the booking by phone they were so helpful and friendly and this continued throughout our whole stay with them. The house is a nice detached victorian place in a side street just 5 minutes walk from the market square - so really handy for everything. Karen's breakfasts were... More

We liked our first visit to Clarence House last year, it was so good. So this time when we came to Keswick it was a no-brainer for us.
