The location was perfect, a five minute stroll from the busy town centre but far enough... More

We felt very welcomed by Karen and Richard. Breakfast was excellent. The walk into Keswick was 5 minutes. The room was quiet and very clean.

Throughout our 3 days in Keswick, Richard and Karen were very hospitable and helpful. Clarence house is only a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick, so is ideal if you want to park up and walk during your stay. The room (number 5) was very comfortable with flatscreen tv and a good selection on the hospitality tray. The... More
