It is a while since we stayed at the cartwheel but what i can remember is

1. Nicest hosts we have met so far at b and b establishment.
2. Most homely feeling
3. Nice touches to make you feel individuals rather than customers
4. Nice location

Have stayed at a few bed and breakfasts all over the lakes and this is my favourite so far.
Thankyou.

WOW! what can we say, except thanks ever so much for such a glowing review and for taking the trouble and time to write it after a long while since your stay. We always say that we are who we are and that you have to be genuine in this business, or you would be soon found out and we aim to make our guest's stay with us in our home a comfortable, memorable one and we guess in this case we appear to have succeeded. Thanks again Tina & Bernie.

This B&B has felt like a home from home for almost 3 years now and I love coming back. The rooms are spit spot clean, all newly decorated and cosy.
Tina and Bernie not only offer a warm welcome to their guest, they really do their utmost to make your stay with them as comfortable as possible.
The breakfast offers a wide range of fresh fruit, cereal and juice, and you can newly combine your cooked breakfast every day as you wish. It is absolutely delicious! Tina's home made bread is really lovely, and it is also used for their legendary lunch bags - I always get one for the walks in the fells because it always contains cake as well. When you come back from a long walk you will almost always be greeted with the scent of freshly baked complimentary cake, which Bernie makes for the guests.
This place to me is just as much about a cosy place to rest my head as it is about the hosts and I would never consider staying anywhere else when in Keswick. You can feel that they have invested a lot of TLC and thoughts into this bed and breakfast to make it a perfect place to stay. Can't wait to be back again!

Hi. Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. Bernie and I are always pleased to know how our guests have rated their stay. It keeps us on the ball so to speak and it's good to know that after several stays with us, you and your partner still feel at home in our house and company. It's like having old friends to stay and we look forward to welcoming you both back to share our home again very soon. Thanks again for your continued custom. Perhaps you could also arrange to bring some of the lovely weather experienced over the Easter break back with you on the train for your next visit.

Thanks to Tina and Bernie for another enjoyable time after staying for a week over the Easter break. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with superb breakfast in the morning just the thing before a day hiking!! The added choice of a packed lunch and full thermos of tea is an added bonus which was ready for us before we left each day. The Cartwheel is ideally located close to the town, to the local amenities and bus services for access to walks and the hosts are more than welcome to point in the right direction for walking routes and places to go for dinner. We have always enjoyed our previous stays here and will definitely be returning as always to the Cartwheel (especially for the homemade bread and cake) as we see it as a home away from home where we can relax and feel comfortable. Hope to return soon, Nathan

Hi Nathan. Bernie and I would like to thank you for leaving this review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed you stay with us and that we kept you well fed both inside the house and out on the fell during your recent visit. A well fed guest is often a happy guest. It would be lovely to see you and your significant other back with us some time in the very near future.

Just wanted to say a big Thankyou to Bernie and Tina for a wonderful four nights stay !!
Having just returned after a totally chilling restful break in this wonderful Keswick B&B.
We were totally spoiled by our hosts. Breakfast was superb, so much choice and so beautifully cooked. Our room was so comfortable and with all those special little touches that you do.... the towel "animals" you make Tina, and that wonderful home made cake made by Bernie every afternoon...... It was so special.
Can't wait to return again..... Very soon we hope..... Thanks again. Robert and Ruth

Hi guys. Bernie and I would like to thank you for your kind comments.
We aim to provide a "home from home" feel to ensure our guests feel comfortable, can enjoy their break and we are pleased to hear that you felt relaxed during your stay. As for the cake.. I'm very fond of it too..perhaps a little too much of late! Take care and it would be lovely see you both again soon.
