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....

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...

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. The ensuite bathroom in our room was a little on the small side though we didn't find this a problem (a larger built person...

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.

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...
