Bed and Breakfasts in Keswick

The northern town of Keswick serves as the gateway to the surrounding Lake District National Park, a land of stark mountains, moorland fells and, of course, glistening lakes. It's visited by more than 15 million people every year. The bed and breakfasts might be used as a base for exploring the national park, but the market town is a destination in its own right. With quirky museums, Saturday markets and Neolithic monuments, it packs quite a lot into its busy little streets. It's idyllic, to say the least, particularly in the summer months when the British sunshine beats down on the town. That said, in the depths of the chilly winters, when the countryside is blanketed in a thick layer of snow, there are few things better than cosying up by the fire in one of the ancient pubs.

Stone-built Keswick B&Bs have long been the accommodation of choice for hikers looking to explore the Lake District National Park

Hikers have long been drawn to the bed and breakfasts in Keswick, whose locally-born owners provide comfortable places for them to lay their weary heads after a long day's hike in the Lake District. There's just something right about staying in the heart of the market town in one of the traditional guesthouses that have served as inns for passing travellers for centuries. In fact, the number of Keswick bed and breakfasts far outnumbers the more impersonal hotels in town, and they provide an intimate place that feels more like staying with a friend or family member. The standards of B&Bs in Keswick are high, and they offer an exceptional level of service. There is also a smattering of luxurious offerings, should you feel like a little pampering.

Keswick B&Bs vary immensely, depending on the level of comfort you're looking for. Some are housed in old Victorian piles with traditional decor and large comfortable beds. Others are smaller, with just a handful of guestrooms, a shared bathroom and dining hosted in one of the period feature-laden living rooms. If you'd rather be nearer nature, you can opt for one of the farmhouses out in the grassy fells or add a pinch of luxury at one of the more stately properties. Don't worry, looking for bed and breakfasts in Keswick couldn't be simpler – use Expedia, where photos and descriptions filtered by location and price help you find the perfect match.

There's scenery that has inspired writers and artists for centuries near your B&B, Keswick

It's true that most stay in Keswick bed and breakfasts to easily reach the national park. Here, the winding footpaths meander around dramatic craggy hilltops and high lakes, through scenery that is achingly beautiful. Many a literary offering has been inspired by the region, with authors like Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth penning their works after visiting. Try to keep some time for exploring the town, though. Here, you'll find the interesting Derwent Pencil Museum, which draws on Keswick's pencil-making history, and the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, which houses works by local artists and locally-found artefacts. Just outside, you can amble around Castlerigg Stone Circle, a religious site that dates back at least 4,000 years, and Derwentwater where you'll find interestingly named features, like Borrowdale Valley, Friar's Crag and Cat Bells. It's here that you can take to the water on boats or catch a performance at the Theatre by the Lake. Taking a road trip through Northern England? Next stop, Manchester.
