If you wish to walk, climb or cycle amongst the spectacular scenery of the Lake District, there is advice, help and information for you at Tarn Hows Guest House. There are local facilities for guided walks, climbing, golf, swimming, fishing and pony trekking . Why not try sailing, canoeing or kayaking on the beautiful Derwentwater, or for the more adventurous, Via Ferrata or quad biking! Read more here…

Great Personal Service

“Big enough to accommodate a group, small enough to give great personal service.”

Friendly Owners

“The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were excellent and the bedrooms very comfortable. The bonus was off street parking – one of our prime reasons for choice given the Keswick street parking!! All-in all highly recommended.”

Convenient for Town

“…the house is within easy walking distance to the town, we’ve had many stays in Keswick but this is by far the best…”

Excellent Breakfasts

“Breakfast was really good with a large selection and no variation on the norm was too much trouble for the hosts. The B&B is within easy walking distance of Keswick town centre and made a great base for our time in the Lake District.”
