Had a lovely 3 night stay here a week ago. Welcoming hosts, spacious, contemporary room which was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent and even offered scrambled egg and smoked salmon! Great spot too-close enough to the centre but a quiet spot nonetheless. Will definitely come again.

This is a very affordable, very nice Bed and Breakfast. It is a block from the main part of this small town, which was great in the very rainy weather. The owners were very nice and went out of their way to help us with their parking situation in the back of the property.

Rooms 1 and 4 are very spacious and nice - but more expensive. The cheaper rooms are smaller - room 3 has very small bathroom - but still perfectly OK.

This a very charming and well-localed B&B in Keswick. A nice walk thru Hope Park and the lake to hikes, boating, and other pleasant endeavors. Keswick is delightful town and would please a wide range of travelers. And Clare & Frank made a nice place for us.
