Tarn Hows Guest House
Ranked #83 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We stayed only one night but our room, while rather small was very clean(including ensuite) and breakfast was simply yummy with a very good variety.
The owners were friendly and very professional and they have a wonderful welcoming home.
Tarn Hows is very close to town and has a carpark area outback. It was so easy to take a stroll into town and also down to the river. Keswick is a gorgeous place to visit and this B & B is in a spoton position.
We recommend staying here.

This is a great B&B, less than 5 minutes walk into town with private parking and award winning breakfast's - seriously the full English is the best I've had. Inside the the owners are very nice genuine people and only too happy to help. Inside the rooms are clean, tidy and well presented en-suite rooms. Almost reluctant to write a good review in case it gets too popular and we can't get in, enjoy!!

Stayed one night at the Tarn Hows recently as part of a road trip. Couldn't fault the place at all. Perfect located, very well decorated throughout and spotlessly maintained. A large choice was available from the to-order breakfast menu, with plenty of well cooked options as well as lighter choices. The owners should be very proud of a fantastic place.

We stayed at Tarn Hows over the May bank holiday weekend to meet up with some friends in Keswick. The owners were very friendly and greeted us with much enthusiasm. In peak season the residential streets of Keswick are a nightmare to park along but the guest house has parking to the rear which was great. The room was clean and bright (the weather was lovely that weekend which obviously always helps!) and our private bathroom was just down a short flight of stairs. This too was clean and fresh, the bath robes provided were lovely!
Breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty, I asked for something not quite on the menu (can't remember exactly) but this was accommodated with a smile.
In short, a lovely little guest house with friendly owners, a short walk to the centre of Keswick and a great base for exploring the Lakes! Thank you!

We wanted a good place to stay within easy walking distance of the town centre and Tarn Hows didn't disappoint. Friendly welcome, immaculate room and a car park as well.
Breakfast was lovely and I would have no hesitation in staying there again.
