Plenty of pubs also offer bed and breakfast and can give you real value for money in a historic venue. Self-catering cottages give you the best chance to save money and there are a small number in the centre of the town.

Visiting Cumbria makes for a relaxing holiday

hotelroomThe popularity of the Lake District means that there are a wealth of places to stay in and around Keswick. Most b&bs are concentrated in the centre of the town. The hotels are dotted around the town and particularly in The Heads, Southey Street and Bank Street areas of town.

During the high season, there is accommodation available on almost every street, but most are often fully booked in advance. Just outside of Keswick there are a number of self-catering cottages, unfortunately, the supply of self-catering is quite limited although they are of good quality. Searching for a bargain in the Lake District is tricky, especially during the school holidays as this scenic part of England is a popular family destination.

Making reservations in advance or last minute can often save you money in large hotels, but with small places, this tactic doesn’t always result in a cheap deal. With smaller independent premises, b&bs or pubs check for special offers regularly. These will keep you informed of the latest deals.

If the weather has been worse than expected, then you might find cancellations and last minute deals as a many people visit the Lake District for outdoor pursuits and if you don’t mind the bad weather then this might be for you.

Visiting Cumbria makes for a relaxing holiday and the unique and independent places to stay will make your trip to Keswick all the more enjoyable. With a bit of luck, picking where to stay and avoiding the high seasons, you can find a great deal on accommodation for your holiday.
