All I can do is echo what previous guest reviews have said about this super place. Clarence House is a beautifully restored Victorian house with an ambience second to none. My partner and I visited Keswick for the weekend as he was taking part in the Keswick to Barrow charity walk and we were delighted with our accommodation here. Our hosts, Karen and Richard, couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly or helpful if they'd tried. We had Room 6 at the top of the house, which was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with a gorgeous, old-fashioned bed. As I am post-operative and not long out of hospital, I wasn't expecting to sleep particularly well away from my own bed but I can say, hand on heart, that I had the best two night's sleep I've had in a long time. There was a very well stocked hospitality tray in the room with a good selection of hot drinks, bottled spring water and the most delicious biscuits - they didn't last long! The en-suite was immaculately clean with good quality toiletries supplied, plenty of fluffy towels and an excellent shower with consistently hot water and good pressure. I had managed to forget my hair dryer, but I needn't have worried as that was supplied too - thank you! The breakfast was absolutely superb, freshly cooked to order by Karen and loads of choice from cereals, fresh fruit and toast to the full English - top-notch bacon and sausages and fresh free-range eggs, nothing cheap or nasty. Richard is an ex-army man and thus very knowledgeable about all things outward bound; he had some very handy tips for my partner ahead of his 40-mile walk which were very valuable - he managed to remain blister-free! If we don't visit the Lake District before, we will definitely be booking Clarence House for next year's walk .... why bother wasting time looking to improve upon perfection? Finally, a big thank you for knocking a little off the bill and donating it to the charity fund - very kind and much appreciated. Lisa and Russ.
