Welcome to the Hillcrest 22 Guest house in Keswick.

Hillcrest 22 family run guest house, with its 8 en-suite rooms is now open after extensive restoration and provides a haven for relaxation in Keswick. With panoramic, uniterrupted views over Derwentwater to the head of Borrowdale, Hillcrest 22 is ideally situated in the heart of the Lake District. 22 of 'Wainwright's fells' can be seen from the house.

Hillcrest 22 was built by the then Lord of the Manor Reginald Dykes Marshall in 1887 as part of the imposing properties on The Heads at Keswick. The exterior remains the same today, but the interior has been designed to provide comfortable and contemporary facilities whilst remaing loyal to the past.

Enjoy the views, afternoon tea, and home baking in front of the log fire in the bright open plan glass walled living/dining area on cold and wet days or in the elevated garden in the sun on warmer days.

Keswick is the ideal base for exploring the Lake District and from Hillcrest 22 the car can be left in favour of boots, bikes, boats and the bus into Borrowdale and beyond.

Drying room facilities are available and for those who wish to bring bikes we have a bike cleaning area and overnight storage.

A meeting/conference room accommodating up to 16 people can be booked for small business conferences, meetings, courses etc. With catering to suit your needs. The room can also be booked by non residents on a daily basis.
