Had a wonderful second visit to oakthwaite house, a huge thank you to David and Karen for being wonderful hosts yet again. It's the second time we have visited and the compact dormer room we were in was homely, clean and beautifully presented. The breakfasts choices are amazing and set you up well for the wonderful walks in the surrounding area. It's a quick stroll away from the town centre so is very easy to get out for dinner. Overall oakwaite house is an amazing b&b, a true delight.

Just back home from my 4th stay at Oakthwaite. Once again, everything was first class. Booked the kingsize room this time (room 5). It's a lovely room & has had a fab new en-suite installed (since last time I was there). Amazing shower. Could have stood in it for hours! Again, room was spotless, breakfast scrumptious & stay very enjoyable. David & Karen are excellent hosts. Sure it won't be too long before my 5th visit :O)

Room Tip: If all rooms are available, I'd book either room 2 or room 5. These are the 2 larger rooms. Room...

Just arrived back from spending two nights in the lovely Oakthwaite House. First of all we would like to say a big thankyou to David & Karen for being outstanding hosts, they were very friendly & helpful & we felt extremely welcome. The room, although small, was tastefully decorated in a modern style and all of the fine details had been thought about; bottled water, chocolates on the pillow, tea, coffee, hot chocolate & biscuits and a bathroom pamper bag each. We chose our breakfast on the pre-order sheet the night before which was then freshly made to the time we had chosen ( Porridge, Granola, Cereal, Full English, Toast...just whats needed before a day walking in the lakes) we would definitely stay here again. Thankyou, Charlotte & Matt

Close to town centre, this unassuming place is a veritable gem. Warm friendly welcome along with much needed information about Keswick. Calm yet very contemporary décor in our comfortable room with very comfy bed and a blast of a shower. And then breakfast! Previous reviews have said it all. That this place is part of fond memories of the lake District is a fact. That a small business can offer so much is a testament to the owners David and Karen.

Room Tip: Room 2 calm comfortable does it

Oakthwaite House is a lovely place to stay. From the very warm welcome to the lovely bedroom and ensuite shower room, and the nicest breakfasts with quality ingredients, everything was perfect. Everything is spotlessly clean and clearly David and Karen are perfectionists. I have to own up to being a fussy person and honestly I couldn't fault a thing! It was a lovely touch to have toast with a birthday candle for my husband's birthday which was brought to the table with David singing happy birthday. A very much appreciated gesture. I would have no hesitation in recommending Oakthwaite House and hope that with all the excellent recommendations that they are receiving they will not be too booked up when I want to visit again! Thank you David and Karen for helping to make our weekend special.

We stayed for three nights. The welcome was warm and sincere. We were helped with our bags and made feel at home. The room was generous and spotless (get the front room). Our hosts were very helpful suggesting places to eat and walks to do. Breakfast was really good and handled very efficiently by our host. If there was an award for the friendliest most welcoming B&B, then this place should get it.

Room Tip: Choose the front room.
