Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nigel and Debra were the perfect hosts. The accommodation was excellent, lovely clean, comfortable rooms with every need catered for. The breakfasts were delicious, lovely to have fresh fruit included and the perfect treat at the end of the day was the home baked cake. We would highly recommend this guest house.

We have just returned from our annual trip walking the fells (our 12th visit) and our 4th consecutive year at the Cartwheel. This was another excellent stay and it has to be said that Nigel and Deborah have really made the place their own. We look forward to many more comfortable stays. Thank you both for your attention to detail,...

Our stay over Easter weekend was great. Their hospitality is second to none, including a nice home made cake every evening waiting for us in our return from our walks. Location and room also great to both walk and enjoy Keswick.

Nigel and Debra have the right balance of chat and space. Cakes are a lovely treat after a good walk. Beds so comfortable. A lovely quiet B and B, short walk in to centre. Lovely breakfasts. What more can I say?

Thanks for your great review; we are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Cartwheel. The afternoon cake is very popular with all our guests! With regard to the radiator in the bedroom, the heating is controlled by a house thermostat, as in most houses, so when the ambient room temperature is reached the radiators will cool.
