Pick your brains

Help, let me pick your brains !!

Ill be lone female travelling & want to stay at Keswick.

Im looking for a accomodation with great views particularly of the lake.. easy you think.. oh no its not !

Has to have single rooms (the supplement would be painful !), something a bit atmospheric, and not the sort of place with "10 courses on saucers" .

Safety and comfort is paramount due to the lone travelling thing.

Please does anyone have any ideas ??

You won`t find a hotel in Keswick that has great views over Derwentwater simply because there isn`t one !. The lake is well away from the town and hotels , you may find a B & B however that will of course also be much better value for money:


If you really want lake views why not stay in Bassenthwaite /Thornthwaite/Portinscale area to give you views of Bass. Lake and good access to Keswick and surrounding area , thats if you are driving of course ?. Which you didn`t specify ?. If you are relying on public transport things get difficult , stay in a B & B in keswick. I don`t think you`ll find safety a problem as long as you stay off the streets late at night especially on a weekend to avoid the drunken tourists !. Keswick is a safe area and I`m sure you`ll find a nice B & B down lake road or somewhere that will do you nicely !.

Hi Loopy,

Check out - www.highfieldkeswick.co.uk

Great views, overlooking hope park and the lake. Only 5 min walk to the town centre, or the Theatre. A couple of single rooms I believe, fantastic food and lots of it. We'll be there for the second time next w/end (can't wait)

Good luck.
