First time staying at this B&B and will definitely be visiting again. Richard and Fon make you feel really welcome and nothing seems too much trouble. We stayed in room 4, the cleanliness and size of the room was excellent. The view of the hills out of the back window was beautiful. Could not fault the choice and quality of... More

The thing that struck me about the lovely family who run Shemara was that all of them are very keen to ensure you have the very best stay.It starts from the minute you walk in the door to the moment you leave. The house is located in an extremely central location in Bank Street, just a few minutes walk from... More

The Guest House is easy to locate, being very central in Keswick town , opposite Wetherspoons and the adjoining car park. The Guest House, accessed up steep stone steps, is very welcoming and provides comfortable and relaxing accommodation right in the heart of Keswick. Shops, pubs, restaurants are all in easy walking distance, as is the stroll to Derwent Water... More

Had a lovely stay at the Shemara guest house on the very edge of Keswick town centre over the August bank holiday. If your early enough you can park directly outside the hotel, but there is plenty of room just over the road in a pay and stay car park. Our room was small but very clean and tidy with... More

Stayed at the guesthouse as previously ate at their Taste of Thailand restaurant, we were very happy with every aspect of our visit. We stayed in room 4 and had beautiful views of the stunning Mountains. The room itself was warm and toasty, huge bath and all mod cons including bottled water and a shoe shine kit. We were lucky...

We visited Shemara guest house for 3 nights whilst on a walking trip in the Lakes. It is very well positioned for going into Keswick in the evenings, parking is an issue if you can't get one of the 5 spaces available outside the guest house. Our party of 3 stayed in a twin and a single room. The rooms... More

Didn't want to leave and will be back. Loved the fridge with real milk on the landing, so you can make a decent brew in your room. They have little pots of yeuch for the less discerning tea drinker, as well. We had room 7, three flights of stairs walkers... But great view of Catbells. The breakfasts are to die... More
