Keswick and the Lake District Accommodation Guide
Where to stay in Keswick and the North Lakes
You will find accommodation in Keswick and the North Lakes area to suit all tastes and preferences. There is a wide choice of:
- bed and breakfast establishments (B&Bs)
- guest houses (who may offer evening meals) and hotels
- self-catering cottages, flats
- bunk houses, mobile homes and caravans
- and also camp sites for tents and touring caravans/motorhomes.
There is accommodation in Keswick itself for those who like the bustle and convenience of being close to all the amenities, shops, pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants. Outside of the town are the quieter lakeland villages and hamlets, each with their individual charm and attraction, country pubs, country hotels and accommodation of all varieties.
With such a wide choice of accommodation and location it can be difficult for the first time visitor to decide where to stay. The most common concern about accommodation is of the quality.
Most accommodation providers in the Northern Lake District are members of organisations such as Cumbria Tourism (previously the Cumbria Tourist Board) or the Keswick Tourism Association, and have their properties inspected annually by qualified representatives of VisitEngland, the AA, Cumbria Tourism's Quality Cumbria, or have signed up to Keswick and Cumbria's Accommodation Quality Charter, each of which helps to ensure the high standards of accommodation for which their owners are justly proud.
