“First rate hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Charnwood Lodge is ideally situated on the outskirts of Keswick. This combines the nearby convenience of a lively town with the quiet associated with being on its periphery. It is a charming detached house with great views. The rooms are bright, well furnished and well maintained.. Each has its own bathroom.

The breakfasts I enjoyed were of a very high standard. Evening meals can be had at an excellent pub/restaurant a few minutes walk from the house.

However, its greatest asset is undoubtedly the owner, Freda. She obviously has a wealth of experience running a B&B and does so in an amiable and efficient manner. Her kindness greatly contributed to my enjoyable stay in the Lakes.

I shall certainly be making a return visit at the earliest opportunity.

After tenting through Cornwall, Wales, and The Lakes this summer, Charnwood Lodge was the perfect choice of accommodation to relax and enjoy the beauty of Keswick and it's residents. Beautiful bedrooms with valley views on the first floor, with shared bathrooms, as well as a lovely dining room on the ground level. We stayed two nights and enjoyed each hour we spent there. Freda was the most incredible hostess and felt like family. She was very hospitable, sweet natured and respectful of privacy. We would highly recommend a stay at Charnwood if you are in the Keswick area.

Our party of 4 (2 couples) stayed at Charwood Lodge on New Year's Eve 2011.
We were made to feel very welcome from the start. Freda is a lovely lady with a good sense of humour and she couldn't have be more helpful. We were greeted with a plate of buscuits and asked to treat the experience as if we were staying with friends.
The house is very clean, cosy and comfortable with great views of the beautiful countryside. It is about a mile to the centre of Keswick and is an easy walk. Freda gave us directions, provided us with torches and re-arranged breakfast time knowing we would be late getting in. As well as juice, cereals and toast the full english breakfast was freshly cooked, generous helpings and delicious.
We all agreed that we would highly recommend the Charnwood Lodge experience.
All in all Freda is the hostess with the mostest and will make your stay a pleasure.
If you are reading this Freda then your IT skills must be continuing to improve !
Thanks for a lovely time. David and Helen + Andrew and Sharon

We stayed 1 night with Mrs Freda Mason in October and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our room and bathroom were clean and very comfortable with fabulous views of the hills, we were made very very welcome and enjoyed a beautifully cooked breakfast. Thank you Freda.

We had the pleasure of spending 11 nights at Charmwood Lodge, a beautiful cottage in a stunning location , which is owned and run by the most charming host. This place is an absolute must when staying in the lakes.
