Spent a pleasant weekend recently with my son at the Winchester in Keswick. We were given a warm reception from Dawn and Ken. Both were charming and informative of the local `things to do, places to see`. As for breakfast-to die for! The establishment is spotless and very professionally run. Well worth a return.

Where do I begin, I love this B&B for its sheer value and friendliness of its proprietors Dawn and Ken. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and inviting with comfy beds and crisp bed linen. After a good nights sleep you wake to meet a breakfast fit for any hill walker, Kens beans are great. Check it out on the...

We visit Keswick on a regular basis and always stay at The Winchester. We first stayed here about five years ago but Dawn and Ken are such friendly and welcoming hosts that we would'nt think of staying anywhere else in Keswick! Nothing is too much trouble for them and Ken's breakfasts are legendary!! The rooms are very clean, the beds...

The room was excellent, it was so clean you could practically see your face in the skirting boards. The couple who run this establishment (Dawn and Ken) are so welcoming, and are genuinely interested in your excursions for the day... offering helpful suggestions and recommendations of places to see and establishments to eat in. The breakfast at the Winchester is...

I would award the hosts of the Winchester Keswick a certificate of excellence. Ken and Dawn are most welcoming and some of the nicest people i know. Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Tea and coffee facilities available in rooms. Toiletries, Bath towels, Hair dryer and even some candy treats are all part and parcel...

We have stayed at the Winchester for the last three years during the convention and the service as been great, excellent breakfast, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Dawn and Ken made us so welcome on our visits. Highly recommended.

Dawn greeted us at the door and gave us a run down of where to find places, general prices, great places to visit (it was our first trip) and general house rules. Breakfast in the morning was always great, every other lodger was really friendly and forthcoming with information. The selection of food, drinks and fruits were also really nice...

Very friendly B&B located five minutes away from the main centre of Keswick & very central to the Lake District giving easy access to everywhere around. Room had everything that you would require, even toffees in a bowl on the bedside table !. The breakfast are amazing, plenty of choice, but full cumbrian has to be tried. From the minute...

We stayed at the Winchester guest house in mid-August for four nights. The Winchester is conveniently located for Keswick town centre, the theatre, the lake and the fells, but is pleasantly quiet. Our room had excellent views of Skiddaw and Latrigg fells which was a wonderful view to wake up to. The room was clean and comfortable ... and had...
