“Simply Perfect!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2009

This B&B is fantastic, clean, perfect location to explore the lakes and like everyone says, arrived as guests and left as friends. Tina & Bernie make you feel so welcome into their 'home' that we didn't want to leave. We stayed in room 1 with the en suite which was everything we wanted and the breakfast sets you up perfectly for your day ahead. When you come back after your day out make sure to try Bernies cakes that he bakes complimentary for the guests which go down well with a cup of tea in your room.

As previously mentioned by other guests, Keswick is a 2 minute walk to the centre and a 10 minute walk to the gardens, derwent water and the boat trips. We ventured out all week as the A591 takes you all the way through Grasmere, Ambleside, Bowness on Windermere, Windermere eventually to Kendal about 40 minutes away. (Beautiful road to drive on with great views across many lakes on the way)

We would definately recommend this B&B to anyone and we are hopefully going to return again in the very near future. Thanks Tina & Bernie for a wonderful stay.

Lovely Guest house, not even five minutes walk from Keswick town centre. My boyfriend and I arrived for a Two night stay and were greeted by Tina and Bernie who are really nice people and made us feel welcome.
Our room was lovely and the bed was really comfy!
Tina had made animal shapes from the towels which was such a lovely touch.
The breakfasts were delicious, locally sourced produce and an impressive choice of menu.
We even got their packed lunches to take walking and they were really nice and great value for money.
The cakes that Bernie made were amazing and you could have a free slice each afternoon to keep you going till tea.
We are in our early thirties and were looking for somewhere nice, central, clean and friendly, we found all this and more at the Cartwheel. I would recommend the Cartwheel to anyone and will tell all of my friends, the next time we go to the Lakes we will be staying at the Cartwheel.

We stayed here to celebrate a birthday and wedding anniversary and the chocolates and wine in the rooms for us when we arrived was a lovely touch. Great cakes from Bernie, really welcome coming back from a day out on the hills. The B & B is spotless, nicely decorated and in a good location for the centre of town.

What a wonderful B&B in a great location!!
We booked on the strength of other people's reviews - and weren't disappointed.
Tine and Bernie are the perfect hosts, making us feel so welcome and at home from the minute we arrived.
The Cartwheel is ideally positioned to enjoy a car free holiday - we arrived on Saturday, parked the car and didn't need to use it again until we left on Monday. There are so many things to do and see all within easy walking distance.
Our room was lovely, a really comfy bed, a great en-suite, big fluffy towels and all the little extras that make it special. In the morning the breakfasts were to die for, just what we needed for a days walking, not forgetting the cakes in the afternnon - delicious - Bernie you're a star.
We had a wonderful weekend - it's a great B&B, run by two lovely people, in a beautiful place - what more could you ask for. We can't wait to return.

I have stayed in a few B&Bs in Keswick and the Cartwheel is the friendliest and best value for money I have found.
The location is central but in a quiet street, away form most of the bustle of the night life, making for an undisturbed nights sleep.
The Breakfast was excellent along with the home made cake after a days walking.
The room (single ensuite) was spacious and clean.
Look forward to staying here on future visits to Keswick
