We read the reviews about The Cartwheel before booking our 4 night stay, and as every report suggested this was a great B&B,with the exception of one,we decided to ignore the unpleasant one and see for ourselves.Thank goodness we ignored the unpleasant one.We could not have wished for more welcoming and helpful hosts in Tina and Bernie.From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and looked after.The room and the bathroom were both exceptionally clean and modern and the bed huge and very comfortable.The breakfasts were delicious every morning and the menu provided so much choice,a hearty full English, and several lighter breakfasts in case the full English wasn't your thing.
Whenever we returned in the late afternoon there was always freshly made cake on offer in the dining room and we were never able to pass by after a hard days walking without sampling Bernie's delicious cooking!
The Cartwheel has a super location in a quiet side street so no traffic noise,and it's less than a 5 minute walk into the market square and centre of Keswick which was great for eating out in the evening.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Tina & Bernie and will definately be returning.We would not hesitate to recommend The Cartwheel to anyone who enjoys a high standard of accommodation at a very reasonable price with very welcoming and friendly hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble.
