Great totally immaculate guest house close to Keswick town centre. Richard and Karen couldn't be more helpful and Richard was very knowledgable with everything in The Lakes. Freshly cooked breakfasts were lovely too. Would highly recommend this guest house. Graham and Helene Isle of Man

Having stayed at Clarence House a few times now I looked forward to a warm welcome. From the moment I arrived from Penrith station on the bus, which is a very easy journey I felt very relaxed. It is true the weather was not great for walking the hills but as the property is such a short walk from Keswick... More

Wonderfully friendly and helpful hosts who gave us lots of advice both before the trip and on the weekend itself. For example, an extensive list of restaurants recommended by Richard, sadly we only had a chance to sample two but both were great!
