“First class in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We have stayed at Badgers Wood three times. There is no other place for us.
Warm welcome as we enter, after parking in designated area, and Anne and Andrew great hosts. Spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms with lovely breakfast menu and help in the planning of our walks for the coming day. Very central to pubs and restaurants for the evening nosh, and of course the lovely Derwentwater Lake and the Theatre

This was our first experience of a B&B and what a great experience it was. The location is only a short walk from the town centre pubs and shops and is a perfect base for a trip to the area. The room was clean and well kept with a nice sized ensuite.

Anne & Andrew were fantastic throughout our stay. We were given suggestions for things to do on the days we didn't have plans, and extra tips for the days when we did. There was a friendly atmosphere over breakfast each day. We were even given a card and box of chocolates as congratulations for getting engaged during our trip - a really lovely touch.

We will definitely stay at Badgers Wood again in future.

My recent stay at Badgers Wood coincided with a few days of wonderful weather, after such a long winter. My single room which Anne & Andrew provide for me, gives me the perfect sanctuary after some warm days walking. Badgers Wood is always beautifully tidy and clean, and if not redecorated each year, it certainly seems like it. As always I have the excellent full english breakfast , which prepares me for a good long day out.

Room Tip: If possiblethe rooms at the front of the property give excellent views of the surrounding fells.

We have stayed at Badgers Wood on several occasions. It is very comfortable, with excellent views from both front and back. The breakfasts are excellent, with plenty of choice. Anne and Andrew are always very friendly and helpful. It will remain our first choice of places to stay in Keswick.

Anne and Andrew are fantastic hosts and have an immaculate B&B. Very friendly making you feel at home and comfortable.
Breakfast was excellent and prepared to a very high standard.
Highly recommended, looking forward to returning to Badgers Wood.

Anne and Andrew were wonderful hosts for our 2 night stay. The house is a 5 minute walk to town center and an easy stroll to the lake. The best part is with this wonderful location, the rooms are very quiet. We had a lovely room on the top floor with beautiful views. While our room was not large, it was comfortable and very clean. The breakfast are made to order and very good with lots of choices.
The best part was visiting with our hosts who are really delightful people.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, request a room on a lower floor.

This is our second stay at Badgers Wood in the last eighteen months and it was as good and friendly as the last time. Immaculate for cleanliness and a very warm welcome on our arrival. Breakfast is superb.
