Booked a 3 night stay to surprise friends and for the first time chose a bed and breakfast to stay. Alex and Ben were welcoming and friendly and had great local knowledge, as it was after half term and quiet we were offered a free upgrade to a more superior room. The most comfortable bed we have ever slept in...

Just back from 3 nights in Keswick. The beds were very comfortable, the towels were fluffy, the breakfasts great and the owners were very pleasant and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our stay, thanks. We enjoyed our walk around Derwent Water- it took us about 4 hours walking . We enjoyed the Keswick Museum and afterwards the cafe downstairs.

I've been here twice for a total of two weeks in October. From previous reviews I knew the single room would be small so I didn't expect much, but I was wrong. It was the details that made the difference. Bed was very confortable, with nice linens. The decor and color scheme creates a very relaxing atmosphere. All the essentials...

The breakfast was really nice served every morning at a reasonable time. The location is...

Thank you for your lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay here but sorry to hear about the bed but never the less extremely pleased you brought it to our notice. We have checked the bed and found that the headboard had loosened from the frame. The bed has now been taken apart and rebuilt and is completely solid.

Me and a friend had a lovely week at Herdwick Guest House. The room was a really good size and the B&B is a short walk from Keswick town centre. A special thanks must go to Alex, who runs the b&b, who was really friendly and quite happy to lend a helping hand when it comes to days out and...

Stayed for a couple of nights and were at the top most en-suite room. Bed was comfortable and host was accommodating and friendly. They obtain their meats fresh from local butcher. Lots of sheep memorabilia here, very cute. Parking for most B&Bs in this area is on street only (free, first come first served). No lift, 3 stories.

Excellent B & B. Very clean room and delicious breakfast. I usually have trouble sleeping, but this was not the case at the Herdwick Guest House. Parking can be tricky at times but we always managed to find a space. Very close to the centre of town with plenty of places to eat.
