We had a delicious, hearty breakfast each morning and didn't need anything else to eat until the evening. The guesthouse is in a perfect location, just 2 minutes from the shops and a short... More

They made the most delicious breakfasts every day and cleaned our rooms daily without being obtrusive to our holiday. The property itself is a beautiful old house with lovely bedrooms, ours even...

Very impressed with the modern-style room with all the mod-cons like a flat-screen tv. Debra and Nigel were the ideal hosts and gave great advise when we asked them where's best to go in the evening. The cooked breakfast was also perfectly done and definitely set us up for the day. Thanks Nigel and Debra!

We received a warm welcome, stayed in a comfortable room and enjoyed great breakfasts. Nigel & Debs are full of local knowledge. What more do you need? Well, location. The Cartwheel is less than 3 minutes walk from the nearest shops and 5 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick.

Nigel and Debra run an excellent guest house. There are many little things that make a real difference to the stay. After a days walking, a slice of Debra's home made cake is a real treat, along with the nice quality tea in the room. The range of options at breakfast is great and you can vary your choice each...
