Quality Keswick Bed & Breakfast Accommodation

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 nearby Park

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). The drying room also doubles up as bike storage. (14 bikes is our record at the moment).

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!

Beautifully presented, warm, comfortable rooms

Single Room


We have two single rooms one on the first floor with a separate bathroom and the other on the second floor with its own en-suite.

Double or Twin

Double or Twin Room

All our twin and double rooms are bright and roomy, some with fell views and all are en-suite.

Family Room


If you need a little more space then we have two first floor family size rooms that sleep up to three people in a double or twin and a single bed.

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 dogs are welcome in Room 1 but only by prior arrangement and when booked over the phone.

Great night's sleep, fantastic breakfast - perfect!

Breakfast Room

breakfast room
A large, bright room and the ideal place to start your day fuelled by one of our excellent breakfasts – breakfasts we are proud of! And what better after a good nights sleep than a hearty breakfast of ingredients that are locally sourced for quality and taste!

Breakfast Time

Now, we think our breakfasts are the best in town and have three good reasons to support this. The first are the ingredients, the second is the very experienced morning cook Lee and the third is the desire to get things just the way you like them!

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 our Links Page for some suggestions of things that may interest you.
