“THE place to stay in Keswick!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2009

Tina & Bernie were perfect hosts, their knowledge of the area was great. The room was clean and comfortable (Room 1 four poster) the location was just 2 minute walk from town centre. Food was great including excellent packed lunch at really reasonable price. As mentioned in previous review home made cake was delicious. Our travel partners had booked elsewhere at MUCH higher costs and did not enjoy such a warm homely welcome or a peaceful stay. They are joining us at the Cartwheel next time!! A perfect base to a stunning time in the lakes!!!

We stayed at The Cartwheel in February. We wouldnt have asked for a warmer welcome. The breakfasts were fantastic, the complimentary homemade cake in the afternoons was something to look forward to after a hard day walking and the knowledge and welcome from Tina and Bernie was certainly very welcome.

We stayed in room 1 which was the four poster room. a lovely, warm room with a nice en suite.

We would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in Keswick. Even the weather was what we ordered!!

Cant wait to go back again.

Bernie and Tina made us feel very welcome from the moment we got there - nothing was too much trouble for them. The B&B is very conveniently located about a minutes walk from the main Market Square. We stayed in room number one which was a very nice size, had a four poster bed and a well-sized en-suite. Breakfast was incredible - we had the full english which more than set us up for a day out walking around the lake. The B&B is nicely decorated and the room comes with everything you would need - tea and coffee making facilities, tv and local info.
Would definitley recommend and visit again.

Have just come back from a weekend stay at the Cartwheel and we could not fault it at all. Friendly welcome, excellent breakfast, fantastic location, beautifully clean - and such good value for money! Don't miss the homemade cakes in the dining room after a day out walking! We would definitely stay there again next time we are in Keswick.

We have just returned from a very relaxing weekend at the Cartwheel. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Tina & Bernie who really can not do enough to make your stay throughly enjoyable. Nothing seems to much trouble from filling your flask for you, if you are going out walking to providing complimentary home made cakes to die for on your return!

The accomodation is very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are excellent and sets you up for the day ahead. The Cartwheel is in a great location a two minute walk to the centre of Keswick.

We will definitely return to the Cart wheel guesthouse and would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Keswick for a relaxing break.

I Stayed At The Cartwheel In Early August For 2 Nights
I Have Stayed At Many Bed And Breakfast Hotels In The Lake District Over The Years But The Cartwheel Is The Best I Have Stopped In At Just £ 26 Pounds Per Night For A Single Room It Is Fantastic Value For Money From The Moment I Arrived I Was Made To feel Very Welcome And Tina And Bernie
Were So Friendly They Could Not Do Enough For You The Breakfast Was Very Good And Well Prepared Unlike Some Hotels Tina And Bernie Offer A Wide Variety Of Breakfast Choice
My Single Room Was Quite Large And Very Comfortable .
Tina And Bernie Are Quite New To Running A Guest House As They Told Me This Was There First Guest House All I Can Say To That Is They Leave Everybody Standing And Are Way Ahead Of Their Competitors In The Keswick Area I Plan To Return
Next Year For Another Visit ( Hopefully Next Time It Might Just Stop Raining )
