Cragwood Guesthouse

Emma and Sean welcome you to Cragwood, a stunning four bedroomed guesthouse in the Lake District’s market town of Keswick.  

About Cragwood

Cragwood is a traditional three storey Lakeland stone house built in 1894, with four beautifully decorated modern en-suite guest rooms.  The two spacious king rooms ‘Skiddaw’ and ‘Latrigg’ are named after the spectacular mountains you’ll see from the window.  The two double rooms are south facing; ‘Walla Crag’ has a view over the roof tops to Walla Crag and Maiden Moor, and ‘Catbells’ has a yard view. 

The house is located in a quiet residential street in Keswick, just a few minutes walk from the town centre where you’ll find plenty of restaurants and bars, and ten minutes’ walk from stunning Derwentwater lake.  There are a variety of walks to do from the doorstep…from all-day hikes taking in multiple fell tops, to more gentle strolls along the Keswick to Threlkeld railway line or around Derwentwater.

What our guests say about us…

‘This is the perfect BnB for Keswick.  The location is minutes away from the bus station and a short walk to town.  The hosts are lovely, helpful, flexible and lovely to chat with.  The bed and shower are luxurious after a day walking.  Breakfast is fit for a king with thoughtful local products.  Hope to return soon.’

‘Breakfast was amazing, room was so comfortable and clean, hosts were lovely.’

‘Great location, very clean room, lovely breakfast choice.  Sean and Emma very welcoming.’

‘Our room was exactly as shown on the website and immaculately clean.  There’s an excellent choice of food for breakfast and the service was very friendly.  And it was just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre.  If we went back to Keswick, this is where we would want to stay’

Cragwood and the environment…

We’re passionate about the environment and always looking for ways to work more sustainably. We’re doing what we can to reduce single use plastic and tetrapak, and as far as possible use local suppliers for breakfast ingredients (see breakfast tab for more info about where your breakfast comes from). We use biodegradable cleaning products as widely as possible; recycle; compost; minimise food waste and plant for pollinators in our small garden.  We’re a work in progress but believe each small step makes a difference.
