at the heart of the Lake District


A message to our guests 27/06/2020 

Good To Go EnglandSince announcing we were reopening on Saturday 4th July we've continued to develop our business and are today pleased to announce that we have now aquired the industry standard "We're Good To Go" from Visit England. This means that we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. 

We are certain that things will change over the coming weeks and months and the adjustments we have made will take our measures to the next level so that you feel confident while staying with us. We have tried to strike a balance between providing the quality and service you are used to with doing things in a slightly different way. At the moment, we don’t have all the answers and we’re certain some things we put in place might work well and others not quite. 

Here is a link to our COVID 10-point Plan which sets out an overview of the actions we have put into place so far – please have a look before you come to stay with us so things are not a surprise when you arrive.

COVID 19 - 10 point plan

So, we hope everyone feels comfortable visiting Keswick and we look forward to welcoming you back to Greystoke House very soon. 

Take care and stay safe, 

Jonathan & Emma



Greystoke House

A warm welcome awaits you at Greystoke House Guesthouse, situated in Keswick, in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

Originally built as a Victorian town house during 1897 in local Skiddaw slate, Greystoke house offers warm and comfortable accommodation with two standard single, three double en-suite and one flexible double / twin en-suite room.

We are a small, family run, non-smoking, dog friendly Bed & Breakfast, situated in a quiet location within walking distance of Keswick town centre. Greystoke House is ideally located to visit a variety of local attractions including the Theatre by the Lake and Keswick museum and provides the perfect base for walking and exploring this beautiful area of the Lake District.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.


A bustling and vibrant market town, Keswick offers a warm welcome to all. There can be few towns with a setting as beautiful as Keswick, situated on the shores of Derwentwater and surrounded by mountains. 

The compact and mainly pedestrianised town centre makes wandering round the shops a relaxing and enjoyable pastime with a wide range of independent retailers and galleries as well as cafes and restaurants. There is an award winning and very popular market which operates on Saturday all year round and on Thursday (mid Feb – Dec).

For those wishing to find out more about the rich cultural and industrial heritage of the area there is the opportunity to visit museums and historic houses. Mirehouse, just outside Keswick is a beautiful family run historic house with strong literary connections. Discover the history of slate mining at Honister Slate Mine or visit the home of the first pencil at Derwent Pencil Museum where you can trace the history of pencil making through displays and carefully restored machinery. Exhibitions and displays at Keswick Museum tell the story of Keswick's landscape, history and culture.

Few people come to Keswick without a visit to Castlerigg Stone Circle. It stands on a superb natural plateau to the east of the town commanding a superb 360 degree view over the surrounding fells. Find out about how real ales are brewed at Keswick Brewery and see exactly how whisky, gin and vodka are made right here just outside Keswick at The Lakes Distillery. For the culturally inclined the Theatre by the Lake offers a summer season of six plays or step back in time and enjoy the red velvet seats of the traditional Keswick Alhambra Cinema.

Whether you want to learn something new or improve on your existing skills lots of outdoor experts are on hand in Keswick with a wide range of activities for you to try. On the water you can choose from sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boarding or just relaxing in a rowing boat. High adrenalin sports are in abundance in Keswick from paragliding to rock climbing to mountain biking. Up in England’s only true Mountain Forest at Whinlatter you’ll find mountain bike and walking trails.
