Private parking for each room

Car parking in Keswick continues to present a challenge but at Badgers Wood that is something you do not need to worry about. With one car parking space per room you can go out for the day without the need to think about where you will park when you return to the house. So few guest houses in Keswick have private off-road parking so this is a real bonus which, located in the centre of town, is something you will really appreciate during your stay.

Located in the Heart of Keswick

Set in a traditional slate fronted house built in 1884, Badgers Wood not only retains its original charm and character but easily combines modern rooms and facilities with Victorian design and architecture.

A real ‘home from home’ located within the Lake District National Park makes it a perfect base to explore Keswick and the surrounding countryside.

Ideal central location in a quiet residential cul-de-sac two minutes walk from Keswick market square, shops, and bus station.

I stayed here for a couple of nights (25th & 26th Oct) and really, really enjoyed my stay. I was greeted by Andrew who was so friendly and welcoming. My room was absolutely spotless and very comfortable, the bathroom in particular was lovely. I stayed in a single room and, quite often, they can be a bit pokey and cupboard like but my room was excellent, plenty of room to move about and nice and light and airy.

I can’t recommend the breakfasts highly enough, they were amazing, and so plentiful, to the point I skipped lunch on both days because I was so full. Also the location is brilliant, in fact on my first full day there I just left the car and walked to the lake and round Keswick it was all so close. All in all I’d definitely stay at Badgers Wood again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
