Great location. Easy walk to the center of town. The hosts were very helpful and thoughtful. Nice details. Bathroom very nice, heated floors! Nice toiletries of soap and lotion. I even bought some to bring home. Breakfast nice quality and very fresh; homemade baked breads!

We've just got back from Howe Keld in Keswick after a couple of nights away. This was a super b & b. The breakfasts are really good, so appetising. I'd recommend the homemade smoothie. The bedroom beautifully decorated and cosy and the bed was very comfortable. The toiletries were great - a lovely shower. A warm welcome from David and Valerie, the owners and the location is great overlooking the park with Catbells in the distance. Loads of books in the lounge on walking locally and other attractions closeby. The carpark is an added bonus, especially if you're not taking the car out again over the weekend. We shall definitely be visiting again and will be recommending it to friends.

We have just returned for our first trip to The Lake District where we stayed at Howe Keld B&B and felt it really enhanced our brilliant visit and we wanted to share our experience on here for potential visitors to see!

* We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived and good advise given about places to eat and walks in the local area.
* Maps and walking books available to look through in the lounge to help plan your stay.
* Very friendly staff always willing to help.
* Lovely bedroom with plenty of space, coat pegs for our wet rain coats, lovely powerful shower.
* Breakfast is delicious, especially the homemade granola and freshly baked breads.
* Small car park behind the B&B ideal for guaranteeing a parking space.
* Perfect location a minute from the centre of Keswick!

We will certainly be booking a future stay back at Howe Keld and would urge other visitors to book too!

Just spent 2 nights at Howe Keld in Keswick.
Location is superb just off the town centre and over looking the park and Derwent Water.
We arrived very early and David was there to greet us. He first of all helped us park the car. Very tight car park but handy if you don't intend to drive. No need to find a space on the street or in the car park opposite.
The room wasn't ready but it was 10 am but they gave us priority and it was ready before 11.
When we checked in David gave us lots of useful tips on restaurants, pubs, weather etc.
We had booked the junior suite. Very spacious and modern design and very clean. Huge wall mounted TV which is great if you like watching telly in bed as we do. Fantastic views from the bedroom window. The bathroom was also large and very modern bath etc. Great toiletries
My wife love the scents and fragrances.

Breakfast was very good. All local produce and good attention to detail. Try David's porridge very nice. Homemade smoothies also good. Home made breads too.

Both David and Val go to great efforts to make your stay as good as possible. They really do try to be the best B&B in Keswick.

This was our first stay at Kewsick, we were recommended Howe Keld by a friend and we were very impressed. Valerie and David were very helpful and their breakfasts were amazing! We stayed in room 3 and it was of a very high standard with lovely views of the hills and park nearby. If you want to stay in a top quality B & B look no further!

Room Tip: Rooms with bay windows have an amazing view.

We have stayed at Howe Keld before and had no hesitation booking again for an overnight stay in Keswick and we shall be back again! It's just what we like in a B&B, everything spotless, very good quality furnishings and fittings in the rooms, lovely wooden floors, very comfortable beds, big television, well cooked breakfast and so on! In fact we felt so comfortable in the room it was sometimes a challenge to get out walking! (and the shower is so good it can make you late for breakfast!)
We are just 'occasional' walkers and so it was great to get some recommended walks from the hosts. The B&B is in good location, in easy walking distance of the lake, theatre and town and I have not hesitation in recommending. It's worth paying just that little bit extra!
