I actually recommende this b & b to my friend at work and she has just been and given the the Cartwheel a review on TA. I am actually a tad late writing this review, apolgies! We take a trip up to the Lakes once or twice a year and have been all over but have a fondness for Keswick as we like to go the Theatre by the Lake, we usually stay on the outskirts but decided it would be nice to be central and within walking distance to both the Theatre and the town. The Cartwheel is a short walk into the town. Bernie and Tina are truly wonderful people, extremely caring and obviously love the job of looking after people. I try and give an honest review on TA as thats what its all about. Bernie and Tina have it so right. Its a lovely friendly homely place. Everywhere is immaculately clean. The bedrooms are beautiful with en suite and all the comforts you could wish for. Special touches such as towel sculptures and a little chocolate, to an abundance of various teas, cofees and hot chocolates and the welcome biscuits which are replaced more than adequately everyday. The breakfasts are hearty and tasty and extremely well prepared. Bernie (dont know where he finds the time) bakes delicious cakes, different one everyday! and leaves them in the dining room to help yourself. What a lovely touch and very welcome after a day out and enough to tide you over until dinner. I really cannot praise these two people enough. I will continue to recommend this lovely b & b. The only negative I can give as I mentioned to Berni and Tina was that I hadn't found this place sooner! well done and best wishes and of course writing this, i am now back on their website to book again hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
