Our B&B Accommodation

All of our B&B rooms are very tastefully decorated and maintained to a very high standard and we provide one of the tastiest breakfasts in Keswick. We use free range eggs, locally bought produce where possible and Fairtrade products to ensure that what goes on your plate is, in terms of taste and quality, the finest available. You will not be disappointed with your stay at our Bed and Breakfast.

Guest House

Elm Tree Lodge Guesthouse is situated in a quiet location within five minutes' walk of the town centre of Keswick, which offers a whole range of attractions including cafes, galleries, museums, shops, restaurants, pubs and a selection of beautiful parks.

Close to the B&B there is the beautifully scenic lake of Derwentwater with fabulous views across to the northern fells of The Lake District. Keswick stands at the entrance to the valley of Borrowdale which gives easy access to the northern and central Lakeland fells.

Tim Mosedale, who runs the B&B, is also a Keswick based Mountaineering Instructor who has summited Everest seven times. Indeed Tim is only the 10th Brit to have summited Mount Everest from both sides and in 2013 he summited twice in one season, which is a bit of a rarity.

If you are staying at our Bed and Breakfast you can easily sign up for a rock climbing session or brush up on your navigation skills - just ask for details. Tim also gives slide shows (prior arrangement necessary - extra supplement applies) at the guest house about his expeditions to Everest with rare 360° summit video footage from 2005 and 2011.

Recently Tim was nominated as a finalist in the prestigious AA B&B awards. Out of 3,500 guest accommodation properties eligible in the UK, Elm Tree Lodge was in the final 25 nominations of 'Friendliest Landlady of The Year' and indeed were the only B&B property in the whole of The North West to have been nominated for this award. To that end you can be assured of a warm and friendly stay our Bed and Breakfast.


Breakfast is served from 08:00 onwards and you are asked to be down in the dining room between 08:00 and 09:00. Early breakfasts can be arranged - advance notice is appreciated. We endeavour to cater to any special dietary requirements and, again, advance notice is appreciated so that we can source and necessary ingredients.
