Stayed here for 2 nights recently, Karen & Richard are fantastic hosts, always willing to please and their help with knowledge of the local area was good. The breakfast was amazing if a little large but it's always better to have more than not enough and there was plenty to choose from. The room we stayed in was lovely and...

Just stayed over the weekend at this B and B. Warm welcome by the owners and immediately felt at home. Bedroom was up several flights of stairs and had a pleasant view to the rear of the property. The room had everything you could need and the bed was comfortable. Only slight issue was the size of the en-suite. Fortunately...

I stayed here recently with my friend for a cylcling weekend and can heartily recommend it. The location is excellent - in a quiet street with plenty of parking nearby - but less than 10 minutes walk from the town centre. The property itself is lovely and immaculately kept. Our room was very well appointed and spotless. Good quality beds,...

Stayed for 2 night weekend break and was so impressed. The breakfast was superb, beautifully cooked and such friendly service. Karen and Richard are happy to give any advice regarding Keswick and local walks or just leave you to get on with it, whatever you need. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, great location. Would highly recommend and hope to return soon....

Pleasant 3 night stay at Clarence House which is about a 5 minute walk to the town centre. The Twin room we stayed in was of reasonable size clean and well presented and the beds comfortable.

We had never visited Keswick before and we were so lucky to choose to stay with Karen & Richard at Clarence House.

We stayed here a couple of years ago so when planning a return visit to Keswick we had no hesitation in booking a room with Karen and Richard at Clarence House. We booked direct with them at their website as that was the cheapest price. The house is so warm, clean and comfortable and the service is just so friendly...

This place surpassed all of our expectations. Hosts were welcoming yet unobtrusive. The building itself was glorious and was restored beautifully. Décor was understated but traditional and personal to the local area (think lots of pictures of sheep!). It seems every little thing was thought out (water and biscuits replaced daily, boot tray etc.), which is greatly appreciated when you...
