Company information

Lakeside House was first built in 1894 and since then has been amongst many other things holiday accommodation for church groups as well as a nunnery! It was then transformed into a luxury Bed & Breakfast in 2010 completely renovated from basement to attic and in doing so created a completely new interior throughout. Now with 14 bedrooms over 3 floors every room is immaculately clean and designed to offer a "home from home" experience. We were lucky enough to purchase LakeSide House in 2022 and we absolutely love running it and hosting all of our lovely guests. We take seriously the importance of making every element of your stay smooth and can help with restaurant bookings, days out, taxis - there aren't many people in Keswick we don't know. Since we have taken over the property we have opened up the lovely, bright breakfast room with its fabulous views as a cafe. Charles Smith, a brilliant local joiner has installed a brilliant bar & we now have a beautiful decking out front where you can relax and enjoy the sunshine with a drink (there are also heaters out there!)
