I have stayed at the Cartwheel several times and would not think of booking anywhere else in Keswick. Tina and Bernie have read the book on running successful B&Bs and followed it to the letter - everything is in place to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Some of the many touches, beyond the comfortable, well provided rooms, that make this a lovely place to stay:
The breakfast - superb choice (which you make on a selection sheet the night before) using the best ingredients. Great flexibility whether you want a large or small breakfast.
The afternoon cakes - made fresh every day, ready and waiting when you get back from your hike.
Spotlessly clean and tidy rooms.
The exceptionally friendly reception - always helpful, nothing is too much trouble.
