We have stayed at Howe Keld a number of times whilst in Keswick and we are always happy to return. It has a nice relaxing ambience and great location in the centre of town, meaning you can forget about the car when going in to town for eats/drinks. Parking can be a bit of a squeeze and may put some people off coming and going by car from the B&B during their stay, but it is do-able and is also off road which is good. That isn't a worry if you are doing walks from Keswick and the bus 'station' is less than 5mins walk away and some return buses stop right outside which is great. The owners are friendly and they obviously take great care and pride in maintaining the look and feel of the place (we have stayed in a number of rooms and they have all been very nice and well maintained) and as others have said, have a big lean towards all things green, renewable & sustainable. Breakfasts are lovely and prices are competitive. We will certainly be back, and would highly recommend.
