Andrew and Anne have made us come back to this hotel ! It is a warm and friendly place. Pristine yet homely with finishing touches worth alot more than you pay for. Central for all activities, with a hearty breakfast no matter what your taste,this is a gem of a stay in any guide book!!!

Anne and Andrew run a classy, well-organized B&B. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Badgers Wood was recommended by Rick Steves and he was right again! Anne and Andrews are very informative and give very good recommendations for restaurants and walks. It's a short (less than 5 minute) walk to the cute town center. It's about 10-12 minutes to the docks to pick up the ferry to your hiking spots around the lake. We hope you enjoy your stay. We did!

Two of us stayed here for a walking weekend at the end of April. The location of Badgers Wood is perfect, a two minute walk to the town (if that) and central to the main walk routes in the area. The bathroom in the room we stayed in was small, however the room was spotless and spacious. Andrew could not do enough for you, he was very welcoming and would do anything for you. In addition, he was very knowledgeable about the area – if you would like advice where to eat, walk etc then he was more than pleased to offer as much advice as you needed for your trip. The breakfast was delicious, and was served between certain times. The parking could sometimes be difficult, however we always seemed to manage to park at a suitable place on the road. A pleasant place to stay if looking for a break in the lakes.

Thank you very much for your review. We are again pleased to have received such a complementary review. We believe this continues to reflect the standard of both accommodation and personal service we provide to all our guests. We would however just like to mention to potential future guests that Badgers Wood does have private car parking - with one space available per room. This is mentioned on our website, in our guest information folder and signs displayed in the house window.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Badgers Wood when we were visiting the Lake District in June. Anne and Andrew are excellent hosts. They were incredibly friendly and helpful; The accommodation is very nice indeed. Our room was incredibly clean and comfortable; everything appears to be micro-managed so well. The breakfast was wonderful and our morning chats with Andrew were very useful. He knows the area very well and gave us great tips. This B&B is in an ideal location as well: just a 2-minute walk from the centre of Keswick in the heart of the Lake District.

Stayed two nights with friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again on any future visits to Keswick. Nice and central just a short walk into town centre. Accommodation was comfortable and spotless and Anne and Andrew were very knowledgeable about the area and transport links etc. Breakfast was excellent. All in all an excellent B & B.

Anne and Andrew are very friendly. And accomdating, did not have 2 singles for whole stay but kindly did a good rate on a double for single occupancy. Spotlessly clean, whatever you like breakfast, excellent private car parking - no comparison with offstreet in other B&B's. Would recommend Badgers Wood to our friends and will stay again next time if availiability.

What can I say? Nothing negative here that's for sure. Mr and Mrs Paylor are the perfect hosts and have the perfect B&B to match. It is very comfortable and clean, the breakfast is spot on and excellently cooked and every time I stay in Keswick in the future Badgers Wood will be my first choice.
