Karen, Richard and family wish you a very warm welcome to Clarence House and hope that your stay with us is comfortable and enjoyable. As long standing lovers of the Lake District and Keswick in particular, we are committed to offering a high standard of accommodation and service to enable our visitors to fully appreciate this most beautiful comer of England. Above all we want Clarence House to be a friendly, clean, relaxing and enjoyable place to stay.
We are situated in a quiet street, just a five minute walk away from the town centre of Keswick and ten minutes walk from the theatre and the lake.
Clarence House is a detached Victorian residence built in 1892. It was purchased by us in March 2012 and considerable time and effort has been spent trying to restore it to its former splendour. During the refurbishments the house has been completely electrically re-wired, had all new en-suite shower rooms, upgraded hot water plumbing, a new fire and smoke alarm system.
All rooms have been refurbished and completely refumished and redecorated. We hope that visitors will find the new rooms smart, warm, clean and above all, relaxing.
The new oak furniture in four of the bedrooms is complemented by new carpets and tasteful plain coloured walls. Limited edition prints by local artists help to finish off the new relaxed and luxurious atmosphere. The guest dining room has also had a complete makeover and had a Victorian fireplace placed back into it. All dining furniture is of high quality oak that is both comfortable and pleasing on the eye. High quality wood flooring has been fitted in the hallway and best quality period colour paints have been used throughout.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premises.
Karen & Richard enjoy sharing their local knowledge and can help you with planning walks, finding things to do, recommending places to eat and drink and most other things you can think of!

Richard and Karen
