About Badgers Wood guest house

A friendly welcome awaits you at Badgers Wood, an award winning guest house providing quality bed and breakfast accommodation. Situated at the heart of Keswick in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, just a two minute stroll to the market square with its shops and restaurants, bus station and public parks, our aim is to provide you with a relaxed and informal home from which to enjoy Keswick and the picturesque lakes and fells.

Badgers Wood guest house has been providing bed and breakfast accommodation since 1932 and over the years has been modernised and carefully restored so as to retain its original Victorian charm and character. The great location and 'homely' feel inside the house were the major factors in our decision to buy Badgers Wood in 2004 and since then we have enhanced the quality of the accommodation further by completing a full refurbishment of all bedrooms and en-suite facilities.

You can see what the guest accommodation rating organisations said about us below:

Enjoy England Silver Award “A very well run establishment with real strengths in customer service and hospitality as well as excellent housekeeping standards.”

AA Highly Commended 4 Star Guest House Accommodation Award 2010-2011 “At Badgers Wood cleanliness standards are very good in both the bedrooms and the bathrooms. A friendly manner was extended to guests from arrival and throughout their stay with guests feeling very much at home.”

Having now completed the property improvements at Badgers Wood, made very much with our guests' needs in mind, we realise accommodation standards are but one part of your overall guest experience when you stay with us. Guests rightly expect us to have a clear environmental policy which you can view here. We also fully appreciate that you may be looking for accommodation in which to relax, perhaps just get away from it all and to enjoy your time away from home so we continue to be fully committed to exceeding the standards and expectations of our two guest service awards:
