Charnwood is an elegant Victorian listed building offering Bed & Breakfast in Keswick, a small town in the English Lake District. This friendly, family run guest house is ideally situated in a quiet residential area, only 5 minutes walk from Keswick town centre, the lake and the mountains.


We pride ourselves on the homely atmosphere in our family run guest house. All of our bedrooms are en suite. They have colour TV's, tea & coffee making facilities plus complimentary shampoo, shower gel and soap. We offer free Wi-Fi throughout the guest house.


We are a dog friendly establishment. Please let us know prior to booking, so we can ensure there is a suitable room available. There are a few rules for dogs: they are not permitted to sleep on beds (so please bring a dog bed/blanket for them), and they are not permitted to be left alone in the rooms at any time. They must also be kept on a lead when going in and out of the house because we have two family cats that, while not allowed in the main house, occasionally manage to escape. Also dogs are not allowed in the dining room during breakfast times.





We provide a Full English cooked breakfast, and a continental breakfast as a lighter alternative.

Free Wifi


We provide a free wifi service for all of our guests.
