About us

About Cumbria House


Cumbria House is a beautiful Victorian property with stunning views of the dramatic northern Lake District, only two minutes’ walk from Keswick town square.


A rarity in Keswick, we have private off-road parking for seven cars, and also have facilities for all weathers; our cosy guest lounge is available year round, and in colder months the roaring log fire will be there to welcome you on your return. We also have a drying room and a south facing patio in which relax.


Our breakfasts offer lots of choice using the best local and Fairtrade products, and our rooms are furnished with comfortable beds, fluffy towels and fresh white linen.





About Ruth & James


We met while trekking in the Everest region of Nepal and our passion for the outdoors continues in Keswick. Ruth has been based in Keswick for over nine years and is a keen photographer and open water swimmer while James enjoys mountain biking and fell running. We both have a good knowledge of local hikes and trails; if you require help in planning activities during your stay we can offer detailed information on the local area. We are both foodies as well so we can also help recommend great places to eat!


Whether you are here for a relaxing break, or are planning a more adventurous trip, we look forward to meeting you!
