Welcome to Rivendell Guest House

Welcome to the Rivendell Guest House website

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at our lovely Victorian home. Situated in a quiet location, only 4 minutes walk from Keswick Town centre, just 2 minutes from Fitz Park but set in the midst of the Northern Fells, we are as convenient for the shops, restaurants, pubs and services of the town as we are for access to the surrounding Lake District National Park.

All our bedrooms are finished to a high standard (most are en-suite) and we pride ourselves on making your stay with us both happy and memorable. We have also recently had all our windows replaced with traditional sliding sash double glazed units to help provide a greater level of comfort. Rivendell Guest House has plenty of unrestricted parking in the immediate area, we also have a large drying room which doubles up as a secure bike storage area. Well behaved pets are welcome but only by prior arrangement.

As past visitors to this truly wonderful place we have a wealth of local knowledge, both of the town and the surrounding area, with plenty of books and suggested walks, we also have our own map printing facility which we are happy to provide for our guests. May we also suggest you take a look at the links at the foot of the page (or our Links Page) for some other suggestions of things that may interest you.

We have seven letting rooms and can accommodate from a single person to a group of fifteen. And what better after a good nights sleep, than a hearty breakfast! Now, we think our breakfasts are the best in town and have three good reasons to support this. The first is that all our ingredients are locally sourced for quality and taste. The second is June and the third is Linda (mother and daughter) and it is the two of them that usually prepare and cook breakfasts!

Keswick and in particular Rivendell Guest House, in the heart of the Lake District, really is a special place to while away those hard earned holiday hours and we look forward to offering you a warm Cumbrian welcome.
