Welcome to Ferndene, a traditional style family run guest house offering high standard, comfortable and friendly Bed & Breakfast accommodation just a short stroll from Keswick town centre and a pleasant ten minute walk from the Derwentwater lakeshore with its stunning views, lake steamers and the famous Theatre by the Lake.
Dating from 1866, our large Victorian house has been comprehensively and sympathetically refurbished and, with our modern Annexe conveniently located next to our car park (providing free off road parking), has been tastefully decorated in a contemporary style throughout. Our rooms are all en-suite, cosy and comfortably furnished, with rooms in the main house offering magnificent views of the mountains, and our top floor Suite giving a panoramic view over Skiddaw, Blencathra, Catbells and the Newlands fells.
Breakfast at Ferndene is served in our comfortable dining room where you can enjoy a relaxing start to the day. Our buffet has a choice of cereals, fruits, yogurts and fruit juice, followed by the famous Ferndene cooked Cumbrian breakfast and accompanied by tea or freshly ground coffee and choice of toast. Tasty vegetarian, gluten-free and coeliac options are always available on request and all ingredients and products are selected from the best locally available and Fairtrade sources.
However long your stay with us we can promise a warm welcome and a comfortable stay. We can help with planning your days and with suggestions for walks and excursions, offer Wi-Fi, packed lunches, secure cycle storage, drying room etc, making Ferndene the perfect base to explore this beautiful area, whether walking or just to get away from it all for a relaxing break.
