High quality guesthouse accommodation in the heart of the Lake District

As a small guesthouse, our hope is to create a “home away from home” with true Lakeland bed and breakfast values to provide all our guests with high quality service and a comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable stay during their visit to the beautiful Lake District.


Oakthwaite House is a Victorian town house built c.1876 in a quiet residential area of Keswick, only a five-minute walk from the town centre.  Superbly situated to explore the stunning natural surrounds of the Lake District, or enjoy a romantic getaway and celebrate a special occasion, Oakthwaite House offers you an ideal home-away-from-home during your stay in Keswick.


We offer a range of delicious hearty breakfast options to give you the perfect start to the morning.  On request, we also offer pack lunches, please contact us to discuss your bespoke catering requirements.


We are also very pleased to be part of the ambassadors scheme for the Theatre by the Lake, so please contact us for your unique ticket discount code if you intend to book tickets at the Theatre.


Please always book direct for the establishments best prices!
