“Relax & Recoup, or walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This was a beautiful place to recover from jetlag. We stayed 3 nights and found the beds to be very comfortable, the room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was delicious. Another bonus was the complimentary parking. Phil and Joy were great hosts and offered great recommendations for seeing the local area.

We spent 2 nights at Claremont House late May and enjoyed our stay. The room was clean with a comfortable bed and nice view from our window. Phil and Joy were welcoming hosts and we were given very helpful information regarding walks in the area and places worth visiting. Breakfast was great as was the company of other guests. Can recommend Claremont House to anyone thinking of visiting Keswick.

Another excellent stay with phil and joy. If anything it gets better every time and we are planning our next stay already.Nothing is too much trouble and everything is so clean and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and really enjoy a bit of banter. Walking is great straight from the door and love leaving the car parked up all weekend. Thanks again and hope to see you both later in the year.

Spent a week at Claremont House while walking the fells. Phil's knowledge, advice and suggestions were invaluable in making our walking experience something to remember. Our room was comfortable, on-site parking was convenient and Joy's breakfasts were top shelf. Phil and Joy provide a list of good local eateries which is kept up-to-date by checking with guest experiences. A great find and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

just returned from our second visit to Claremont House. To say that Phil and Joy are doing a great job is an understatement, they are the perfect hosts. We were greeted like friends even though we had only had a 1 night stay with them in May last year. We had an extra night this time,but would have loved to stay longer.Everything was as good as we remembered,our rooms were immaculate,we stayed in the Garden room and our son and his girlfriend stayed in Skiddaw.The breakfasts provide everything you could wish for, still think the toaster on the table is an inspired decision.Whilst Joy is busy in the kitchen, Phil is so attentive making sure you have all you need.Thanks so much for another great break,got to definatley stay for longer next time, which hopefully won't be to far away. Just a final note to Phil, thanks for being on red squirrel watch,it was lovely to see.

My partner and I stayed at Claremont House for 1 night and it was the perfect place for our little getaway.
We arrived early to see if our room was ready and were given a great welcome and offered tea and coffee while Joy finished our room off!
We asked for recommendations as to where to eat for our evening and were given our directions as to how to get there...nothing seemed too much trouble for Joy and Phil! We walked into Keswick which took around 10-15 minutes downhill and got a taxi back for just £3.
Our room was spotless (i would dearly love Joy to come and clean my bathroom!!) Breakfast was promptly served and delicious!
Overall a fantastic stay, well worth the money!

Have just spent a lovely week with Phil and Joy. Marvellous hosts - so freindly. Loved the room - Skiddaw - beautiful views.We both slept so well, and the bathroom was splendid.The breakfasts were super, and the toaster on the table is a great idea. Enjoyed many friendly chats with Phil and Joy - apologies to Joy for engaging Phil in conversation when he should have been bringing in your wonderful breakfasts! Hope he still has the job!.What a good idea to have the bus stop situated right outside. Look forward to seeing you next year,
