We found this guesthouse quite by accident while booking last minute. It was chosen primarily because we could book online. How pleased we are that this happened. We have been to Keswick many times but this was the first time for our friends. We could not have chosen a nicer place to stay. Tina and Bernie are the nicest people I have met in this business. Very welcoming, warm and friendly, without being over the top. We were meeting a large group of friends in Keswick to celebrate a 50th birthday and we raved about where we were staying to them; highly recommending the Cartwheel to all. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of variety too. The rooms were modern and immaculately clean. We all loved the cake each tea time when we returned which made the whole experience even more homely. The location of the Cartwheel could not be better either; minutes from the town centre. Tina and Bernie are lovely people and we look forward to staying again with them. Perhaps we might try one of the walks next time Tina, so long as it is a gentle one eh!! As you probably noticed, and we agree, we have the get up but perhaps not the stamina - there's time yet though .
