Meet Your Hosts


Hi, we are your hosts Simon and Rebecca.

As a small guesthouse, our hope is to create a “home away from home” with true Lakeland bed and breakfast values to provide all our guests with high quality service and a comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable stay during their visit to the beautiful Lake District.

Oakthwaite House is a Victorian town house built c.1876 in a quiet residential area of Keswick, only a five-minute walk from the town centre. Superbly situated to explore the stunning natural surrounds of the Lake District, or enjoy a romantic getaway and celebrate a special occasion, Oakthwaite House offers you an ideal home-away-from-home during your stay in Keswick.

We offer a range of delicious hearty breakfast options to give you the perfect start to the morning. On request, we also offer pack lunches and a variety of extra special treats to make your visit with us such a special one, please contact us to discuss your bespoke catering requirements.

We are also very pleased to be part of the ambassadors scheme for the Theatre by the Lake, so please contact us for your unique ticket discount code if you intend to book tickets at the Theatre.

Please always book direct with us for the establishments best prices!

So a little about us, Simon served with the Royal Air Force for many years serving all across the world and Rebecca worked in hospitality before directing her intentions towards banking operations, and after hiking many a fell, cycling many a trail and kayaking many a lake, camping, caravanning and holidaying, it was time we changed our lifestyle a little more permanently to enjoy fully what the beautiful Lake District National Park had to offer and here we are to this day.

So, come and live the experience, eat, sleep and repeat in one of the most naturally beautiful and engaging landscapes that has something and everything for all our discerning guests to enjoy and be a part of.

We hope to see you all soon!
