Great Location in the heart of Keswick Quality Accommodation, Well Located Breakfast How You Like It! Great Walking

Welcome to Rivendell Guest House

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at Rivendell in Keswick where our aim is to ensure that everyone who visits our guesthouse has an enjoyable and memorable stay.

Rivendell is a homely Victorian townhouse, situated near to Keswick town centre and just a stone´s throw from the centre of Keswick.

Our rooms are well appointed, warm and comfortable. Our breakfasts are legendary. Our hospitality second to none.

All are welcome: walkers, ramblers, runners, cyclists, those that want to do little, those that want to do loads, those that want to be cultured and those that don’t! If you happen to be the outdoors type then we also offer a drying room just in case the weather becomes inclement (not altogether unknown in the Lake District).

Did we mention that Keswick is set in the midst of the Northern Fells which makes Rivendell as convenient for the shops, restaurants, pubs and services of the town as it is for access to the surrounding Lake District National Park – result!
