A quiet room at the back of the hotel, Keswick also has a Juliette balcony for those impromptu Romeo moments. Beauty and comfort combine in the bedroom and in the bathroom so you might struggle to decide which to enjoy first!
On the first floor at the back of the hotel, our Keswick Suite delivers 375 square feet of high ceilinged luxury. Keswick has a lounge area, solid black walnut flooring throughout, designer furniture, and a Juliette balcony.
Now that’s what we call a bed! The centrepiece of the bedroom is a huge, hand-made super king bed from designer Frank Hudson with all the trimmings – plump pillows, soft sheets and a delicious duvet. Once you are in it, you’ll never want to get out of it.
Jaw-droppingly good: the bath is huge, and made for two, and the coloured lighting and underfloor heating adds to this very sensuous space. There is a large shower, mirror with lights, soft robes, indulgent toiletries, and an endless supply of top of the range fluffy towels.Check availability Book Now

The stunning town of Keswick is located on the shores of Derwentwater and is perfectly situated for exploring the lakes as well as Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Scafell.
Keswick is a delightful market town within the Lake District National Park. Keswick sits on the shores of Derwentwater, with Bassenthwaite Lake and Thirlmere close by, and Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Scafell all within easy reach. Windermere, Kendal and Carlisle are all easily accessible, as are Penrith to the east and Workington to the west, which makes it a great town for exploring the Lake District.
DID YOU KNOW ?
In the 13th century Keswick was recorded as Cesewic, which suggests that it was some kind of cheese market. Speaking of markets, in 1276 Keswick was granted a market charter and the market is still held in the town every Saturday. In 2005, Keswick became a Fairtrade Town.
The world’s largest pencil is to be found in the Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick, a throwback to the discovery of black lead in Seathwaite in the 16th century, which triggered the pencil making industry in the town.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his family lived in Keswick, moving there in 1800.
Robert Southey, another â€˜Lake Poet’, and his wife came to stay with Coleridge. And William Wordsworth was only down the road in Grasmere, a trip Coleridge did many times in order to visit him.
Beatrix Potter used to spend her holidays in Keswick, staying at Lingholm and Fawe Park, two stately homes on Derwentwater.
THINGS TO DO
As well as walking and generally exploring the Lake District, there are plenty of things to do in Keswick. There are a number of festivals that attract large numbers of visitors, such as the annual film festival, the annual jazz festival or the annual beer festival. Or for the more energetic, there’s the annual half marathon.
Permanent fixtures include the Theatre by the Lake, the Cars of the Stars Motor Museum, the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery and the famous Cumberland Pencil Museum.
Where do I start with this fabulous hotel? We were greeted with a fabulous looking hotel with discreet parking and in an excellent location near both Windermere and Bowness. On entering the hotel we were greeted by excellent, friendly and polite staff who made check in extremely easy and quick. We were then showed to our room which exceeds many expectations. Staying in the Keswick suite, it was extremely clean, beautifully laid out and full of some fantastic final touches. The bathroom deserves a review on its own. Modern touches made a real difference from the mood lighting to the wall mounted bathroom TV. Morning breakfast was fantastic with many choices. The servings were filling, the food was hot and cooked to perfection. Compliments to the chef!!!! I have been to many hotels in the past and none have even been close to this hotel! I am so pleased to have stumbled over this hotel and we WILL certainly be returning in the future. Guys do not walk past this hotel, book if there is space and i promise you will not be disappointed!!!!!
A luxurious and relaxing stay
I stayed for 2 nights in the Keswick suite with my boyfriend, and what a fantastic stay it was! The weather wasn't great so thank god for the stunning room! When we first arrived we met Vicky who provided us with information on the towns close to us and things to do, then she showed us to our room which was beautiful, spacious and of course the bathroom with the airbath was out of this world - that alone made the price well worth it! Breakfast- was delicious, we ordered the full English which was delivered to our room so we could stay in our robes whilst enjoying our breakfast! Things to do- we went on a boat trip from Brownness (which is about a 10 minute walk away from the hotel) which was great fun and very interesting. There are many little shops to go in while having a walk around the town, and many lovely cafes and restaurants. I enjoyed how relaxing the area was, and the stunning scenery! I would definitely recommend the Windermere suites for the rooms alone, however the location also adds to the experience!
Wish we could have stayed longer!
We were shown our room (The Keswick Suite) and were amazed by the actual floor space of our luxurious surroundings. It felt like we'd just walked into a brand new room being used for the very first time. The place was immaculate. Modern furnishings - warm lighting and inviting bathroom! I cannot fault any part of this superior B&B experience. The choice at breakfast was to die for.... It filled you up until you went out for an evening meal. The mini bar was reasonably priced with a varied selection of snacks and beverages. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Nothing EVER seemed too much trouble and someone was available to answer questions or tend to your every need. This was our mini honeymoon due to work commitments and I have to say, we both definitely wished we could have stayed longer..... We WILL return!
