“Great Stay”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

Stayed in the superior room - beautiful decor, comfy bed and good shower in the en-suite. Quality breakfast too. Pleasant and non-intrusive owners. Andy was very helpful with tips on what to do and where to walk. Convenient for Keswick town centre just 5 minutes walk away. Highly Recommended!

I have no hesitation on recommending this place for a stay in Keswick. Rooms were really well decorated to a high standard. Great bed. Luxurious bedding. The staff were really helpful right from first phone call right through to after departure. They went the extra mile with help if you needed it but without being over-fussy if you just wanted a bit of space too. WiFi that worked without dropping out was a plus for sorting out a few things. You dont feel cramped like you can at some B&Bs in Keswick. Good location because you are just far enough out of town to have free street parking ( as well as some of their own private parking ) but close enough to be able to walk into town in pretty much 90 seconds flat. When heading out of Keswick for a day of walking you can be quickly on your way without needing to drive through the centre too. No negatives at all about this place for me. It delivered everything you want and nothing that you dont want. It felt like home for a few days.

I stayed at Tarn Hows as part of my Cumbria Way adventure and couldnt have been more pleased with my choice! The owners are friendly, my room was spotlessly clean and stylish and I was spoilt for choice at breakfast! Definitely to be recommended and I shall certainly be back!!!

Room was beautifully decorated with en-suite including an excellent shower unit.
Andy the owner was always ready to give helpful information on where to eat or what walks to do which suited our ability.

Reviewed 26 August 2011

Tarn Hows is a wonderful base for exploring Keswick and the surrounding areas, and is only a short walk into town. Andy was a great host and had some good tips about walks I could do in the area, as well as decent places to eat. Private car parking is a big plus, and the single room, although small, was perfectly fine for one person and had a gorgeous view towards town. Very comfy bedding! Thought I was going to miss breakfast because I didn't want to get out of bed!

The only slightly negative comment - and I say "slightly" because it didn't disrupt my stay, but it might for others - is the noise of the pipes in the walls (well, I assume that's what the noise was). It did get a bit loud one night but fortunately I wasn't trying to sleep at the time.

Apart from that, if I ever visit Keswick again, I'll definitely be staying!
