First time staying in northern lakes - so from TA chose Clarence House hosted by Richard and Karen. Could not have chosen better! Street parking was straightforward and for the four nights we were staying we did not move the car once, the location being ideal for Keswick town (with all its restaurants) and the bus station (and access to both the northern and southern lakes) Richard was the perfect host and a mine of information about the walks, ramble, hikes and other attractions. Karen was in charge of breakfast - excellent choices and preparation. The fruit salad offering a great selection. The room was spacious with an excellent mattress and Egyptian cotton duvet (and with really good pillows) The en-suite shower room although of modest proportions offered a powerful shower and really good toiletries! In summary - one of the best B&B's we have stayed at with excellent and friendly hosts who made up for a typical wet weekend in the Lakes!
