“Perfect Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

One of the best B & Bs we had on our trip and definitely the best breakfast and most comfortable bed!! The rooms have modern conveniences - enjoyed the heated towel rack and the large number of plugs for computer, phones, etc. David is a gracious host with great suggestions for hikes/pubs/etc. The location is perfect and just a short walk to the Theater, lake and main street for shopping/dinner. We loved the Walla Craig and Cat Bells hikes and the Pheasant Pub for dinner. We stayed two nights but wish we could have stayed longer - love Keswick and the Lake District!! We will be back!

We spent 3 nights at the Howekeld B and B and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay. The rooms were large, modernized and with every convenience. The hosts emphasis on "being green" was a delight to experience. Breakfasts were generous with eggs cooked to request. The fresh local breads were a real treat.
The weather was very rainy and poor for most of our stay so we really appreciated the lounge area at Howekeld. Our hosts helped with dining reservations and all selections met our requirements. David also helped with parking the car...a necessity with space being at a premium.
Although not hikers, this a a perfect location for going into town or heading off to local sights. We can't recommend it highly enough. A perfect spot!

Room Tip: All rooms are good and most very quiet,

This is the third time we have visited Howe Keld and as ever the welcome, food, service and rooms were excellent. The breakfast as ever set us up for the day particularly on the days we were out walking. We enjoyed ourselves so much we even ended up staying an extra night and even though that involved moving rooms David, Valerie and the team sorted everything for us.

We absolutely loved everything about our stay at Howe Keld.
The after hours warm welcome from host David was beyond expectations and the next day he even helped us find a permanent place to park. Both he and Valerie gave us helpful recommendations about what to do and how to get places.

The breakfast was superb, service friendly, and the rooms were perfectly comfortable and made a great use of the space.
Location is ideal for hiking Catbells, heading into the little town area, and even just going to Derwentwater.

Highly, highly recommend this for a stay in Keswick. The perfect experience!

We revisited The Howe Keld Hotel in Keswick on our recent trip to The Theatre By The Lake.The Howe Keld remains as excellent as ever. The rooms are very well appointed and scrupulously clean. The shower is a joy after a heavy walking day. The breakfasts are sumptuous and the customer care of the highest order. I have revisited 'Elegance'.
Please do not tell your friends of this as we might have difficulty rebooking

We had a wonderful room in the new section of this B&B. It is a short walk to town and also a short walk to the Lake and the Theatre by the Lake. The breakfast is healthy (if you want that), local products and graciously served. The hosts were helpful on restaurant selections and other needs. We enjoyed this lovely area of the world - our only mistake was that we could only stay for two nights. This area needs more time.

We had a 10-day stay . The room was very clean and comfortable and our son got a very good additional bed. The beds have been very good. The bath has an excellent shower. The breakfast was great, completely organic and we loved the homemade banana-bread. Valerie gave us many hints for hiking and bird-watching in the area and we had very good chats with her.
We agree with the owners ideas of sustainability and found the first B&B with a waste separation on the guests side. Thats really great. The location is the very best for the Lake District, because it is not so crowded as Ambleside.
