One of the few guest houses with private parking for all guests, we are ideally situated, only a few minutes walk from the town centre, lake and nearby fells. For mid-week breaks and weekend stays choose The Anchorage for stylish accommodation in a relaxing setting. We have 7 guest bedrooms, 6 have en suite facilities, all with newly refurbished bath and shower rooms. Leave your car in our car park while you take a walk around the Lake, explore the surrounding fells or just stroll around Keswick itself with its many quality shops, pubs, cafe/bars and restaurants.

Keswick is an excellent holiday base for exploring the whole of the National Park whatever your choice of activity, be it boating, walking, climbing, mountain biking, painting, photography, shopping or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery. After your day out, why not relax in your room and watch a DVD from our well-stocked DVD library?

Breakfast is served in our sunny dining room, where you can relax whilst planning your day ahead over a traditional cumbrian breakfast using local produce or lighter options such as scrambled egg and smoked salmon on a lightly toasted bagel. Vegetarian options available as are soya or rice milk, fruit or herb teas.

All rooms have flat-screen TVs with DVD players with DVD library library available. The rooms also have hospitality trays and bottled water, as well as hairdryers and alarm clocks. The 3 double rooms have scenic views of the surrounding mountains, Cat Bells, Skiddaw and Walla Crag to name a few. There are also 2 single rooms and 2 family rooms which can be used as twin or triple rooms to accommodate 3 adults. All have scenic views of the nearby mountains and fells.

We have safe cycle storage and drying facilities. Packed lunches are available on request. Flask refills of tea and coffee are available free of charge. There is a private car park at the rear of the guest house.

    “Excellent location, breakfast and service”

    Overall excellent but one of the double rooms was rather small (we had 2 doubles and one single for a mature group of 5))
