My husband and I stayed for a week with Richard and Karen in August. Their lovely B&B is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick. Every morning they served a fantastic breakfast and there was an excellent choice of fruit, yoghurt and cereal as well as a choice of hot breakfast. Richard was extremely helpful and gave... More

Spent 3 very enjoyable days at this very comfortable, spotlessly clean and welcoming Guest House in Keswick. Location was perfect for both town centre and lake. Breakfast was excellent and promptly served by our very helpful hosts Karen & Richard. Would not hesitate to return here for any future visit.

We wanted somewhere to stay on our one night visit to the Lakes that was clean, comfortable ,close to Keswick centre ( but not too close ) and most importantly a good hearty breakfast and Clarence House managed to excel in all these areas.
