We are delighted to announce that the Lake District has become a World Heritage Site, joining iconic locations such as the Grand Canyon, the Taj Mahal, the Great Barrier Reef and Machu Picchu by being awarded Unesco World Heritage status.
We are both very pleased with the refurbishment done to our Kingsize room 6 which now has new oak furniture and a very comfortable (we have tried it!) Kingsize bed. This is always a very popular room and is a favourite with many of our regular visitors.
Keswick has already seen many events during the first half of 2017 such as the annual Beer Festival and Keswick Mountain Festival weekends. We are already fully booked for the 2018 Beer Festival! If you are planning to come for a specific event during the year we suggest booking accommodation well in advance to avoid disappointment.
The Keswick Convention is upon us once more from 15th July until 4th August, when the town welcomes thousands of visitors to this annual event which has been held for almost 150 years. Although the town is busy for these 3 weeks during the day and early evening, it is also an ideal time to visit if you are planning some walking as the fells are usually fairly quiet.
28th of August sees the Keswick Show which makes a great day out. There is plenty to see and do in some of the most beautiful surroundings in the Country. There are shows most weekends during the summer in the towns and villages – more details can be found on www.keswick.org.
The Christmas lights and New Year celebrations in town are always popular. Don’t leave it too late to book if you fancy spending some time with us.
We keep our friends on Facebook up to date with things going on here. It is a great way to keep in touch with people who have stayed with us and for our friends and family around the world to see what we are doing.
