Visited Keswick this weekend and stayed at Clarence House. Richard and Karen very welcoming and informative about the area. Clarence House is beautiful very well kept due to the hard work put in by Richard and Karen. Lovely weekend and would definitely recommend a stay at Clarence House.

My wife and I stayed a couple of nights at this B&B earlier this week. This was our second time. Once again Richard and Karen were the perfect host. We had a comfortable and restful 2 night stay. We had Room 3 with a king size bed and I can say that I had the best night sleep I have had in ages. Previous guests have commended Karen's breakfast and I can honestly say that they are not wrong. I will go as far as saying that Karen's breakfast is the best we have had in any hotel or any B&B (and we have stayed in a lot). She uses excellent local produce and cooks it perfectly. We would highly recommend this B&B and we would love to stay again.

Room Tip: Room 3 has the king size bed. It does cost a little more but it's worth it.

My husband and I stayed for a week with Richard and Karen in August. Their lovely B&B is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick.
Every morning they served a fantastic breakfast and there was an excellent choice of fruit, yoghurt and cereal as well as a choice of hot breakfast.
Richard was extremely helpful and gave us hints and tips about each walk we planned.
The room was comfortable and made up every day, with tea, coffee, bottled water and biscuits refreshed in our room daily.
All in all a lovely B&B and one we would definitely visit again. Thank you Richard & Karen

This was our second stay at Clarence House where we stayed for 6 nights. Richard and Karen were brilliant yet again! Our room was perfect and it was quiet and relaxing. Karen's breakfast was great, nothing was too much trouble and Richard's advice on the area was spot on. We hope Alfie the dog enjoyed his treat! Hope to stay again.
