Just got back from a fantastic weekend in Keswick (we visit Keswick a lot). We stayed at the Cartwheel for 2 nights and it was perfect. The room was adequate, comfortable and very clean Tina and Bernie were excellent hosts and nice and friendly. They cooked a lovely breakfast on both mornings and had a good knowledge of local walks. They also told us about the best places to eat. We'll definitely be going back again. An excellent bed and breakfast!

We loved our stay at the Cartwheel Guest House. The location was perfect, Street parking worked out fine. Our room was clean and comfortable, and Tina and Bernie were friendly and knowledgable, offering helpful information and advice. Breakfasts were great! We would certainly stay there again, and we highly recommend it to others.

Hi Guys. Thanks ever so much for taking a little time out of your trip to write this review. It's always great to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay with us and that you feel able to recommend us to others. Not sure where you'll be on right now, but trust you enjoyed Scotland and the weather wasn't too unkind to you.

Very clean and very comfortable and lovely friendly hosts Tina and Bernie. Thanks again for the lovely home baking it goes down a treat after a long walk in the hills. Good breakfast. Our 3rd visit to The Cartwheel and it wont be our last. We took our friends to visit Keswick they loved it when they go again they will stay at The Cartwheel which is so close to the centre only few minutes walk from all the pubs and restaurants.

Hi Guys. Thanks for your comments, we are only sorry that we were unable on this occasion to accommodate you for the last night of your break. It's good to hear that your friends enjoyed their stay with us and their very first visit to the lakes. It would be lovely to have you all back here with us in the not too distant future and we'll do our utmost to make sure we have all the nights you need!

Tina and Bernie welcome you into their home with advice on the area, wonderful breakfasts and home made bread. Clean, comfortable, very welcoming and with easy access into the town centre - 200 metres. We were looking to work within a budget so chose one single and one twin room without en-suite bathrooms. The bathroom and toilet were either on the same floor or down one flight of stairs but did not feel like a restriction at all (for the use of our two rooms only).

I stayed for six nights and was very impressed by the welcoming, knowledgeable hosts, the very comfortable room and the good quality, well cooked breakfasts.
I've already recommended The Cartwheel to several others.

We were greeted warmly by Tina and Bernie when we arrived and they continued to be wonderful hosts throughout our stay.  They are now very experienced having run their B&B for several years.  Bernie's home baked biscuits were provided on arrival and a delicious piece of cake when we returned from our activities the following day.  His breakfasts are delicious and kept us going all day.
The house is centrally located in Keswick, about a 3 minute walk into the town centre for restaurants and shops.  Our room was very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated.
Tina and Bernie are really genuine people who are very interested in what their guests are doing, and provide great recommendations and good information on activities.  Highly recommended.
