“What a nice place!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Late booking so not too much choice of places to stay. Went for this one because reviews put it above most other B&B's in Keswick. It deserves to be. Lovely place - owners very helpful and friendly, wonderful breakfasts and nice, good quality furnishings etc - will be coming back, hopefully soon.

We were fortunate to find Clarence house for our 1 night stay in Keswick. we were met by Karen and Richard and given a warm welcome. Our room, (3) as the rest of the house has been refurbished to a very high, tasteful standard. The room is spacious and has a very comfortable bed, with everything necessary for your stay. Breakfast the following morning was also to a very high standard, using quality ingredients, nicely prepared and presented and with a variety of options. Thanks to Richard and Karen for their hospitality. Our only downside was that we could only stay one night this time! We hope to return before too long and would thoroughly recommend this B&B regards Chris and Bev,

As a last minute idea to stay in the lakes, we weren't sure we'd be able to find anywhere to stay. Not only did we manage to get a lovely room at Clarence House but we were greeted by Richard & Karen who made us feel extremely welcome. The house has been renovated beautifully, it is clean, homely and the beds are the comfiest we've stayed in. The breakfast was delicious and Karen & Richard were very hospitable and were happy to advise us on where to go for the best pints and food in Keswick, which is only a three/four minute walk from the place. We will definitely try and stay here again. Thanks Richard & Karen,
from Dan & Becks.

Room Tip: Book the room through Karen & Richard directly.

Dear Dan & Becks. Thank you for posting this very kind review. It was a real pleasure having such a lovely young couple staying at Clarence House who seem to love Keswick and the Lake District as much as we do. Karen and myself wish you all the best in your career aspirations. It would be great to welcome you into our guest house again in the future, perhaps for a longer stay?

Richard & Karen...Thank you for your hospitality and making our stay a pleasurable one.

We had a three night stay in October at Clarence House, we found the B & B to be very clean, comfortable, warm and welcoming.

Clarence House is located in walking distance to Keswick Town Centre.

The George Inn in Keswick is a must very nice food although half cow pie a little challenging!!!

When we next visit Keswick we will defiantly stay at Clarence House and would highly recommend.

When I arrived, Richard gave me a very warm welcome . As soon as I walked through the door, I felt comfortable and relaxed, it is such a lovely atmosphere. The room was lovely, clean and excellent attention to detail. We met Richard's wife, Karen, at breakfast, and she provided excellent service and the breakfast was first class, with plenty of choice. I would recommend this guest house, knowing that you will not be disappointed , it is a real gem, best B&B I've stayed at in Jeswick, and I've been going there for many years. Friendly , welcoming people.

From the first interaction with Richard & Karen until our departure we can't say enough about how warm, friendly and welcoming they were. Their newly refurbished guest house is a real gem. Decorated in a contemporary way with lots of consideration given to finishing touches. The location is perfect with just a 5 min stroll into Keswick. The parking was not a problem as there is ample room on the road and surrounding area. Breakfast was first class and Karens poached eggs were just as we asked!!! Nothing was too much trouble and we will definitely be returning and recommending to our family and friends!
