Lairbeck is a traditional Lakeland house, with 14 bedrooms, a bar and lounge area. A special place that will leave you with lasting memories.

Set in a secluded location with an acre of private gardens yet only a ten minute walk into Keswick centre with its host of amenities. Lairbeck also enjoys magnificent views of Skiddaw, Causey Pike and the Borrowdale Valley. Our location will tempt you to leave your car in our spacious car park and enjoy one of the many walks available from our doorstep.

The space
Converted from the family home of James and Emilie Anderson (friends of John Ruskin), Lairbeck is a true Lakeland country house hotel. Visited by John Ruskin, Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley (founder of the National Trust) and Beatrix Potter. To pay tribute to its history, all of the guest rooms have maintained their original name, which often reflected their earliest use - from Servants' Hall to Teacher's Room.

There is a beautiful bar, with numerous tables and seats to enjoy our cosy fireplace which overlooks views of Skiddaw. We also have several comfy sofas to relax on in our lounge area, surrounded by a barley twist staircase and galleried landing.

This quirky and homely bedroom has a double bed, double aspect windows, beautiful beams, dressing table, wardrobe, television and comfy chairs. The ensuite has a full sized bath with a handheld shower attached. Although you will need to mind your head on some of the beams, this lovely bedroom will win you over with its charm and individuality.

We offer our rooms on a room only basis, however, if you would like to add breakfast please contact the host and we can supply this for an additional charge.

We have 14 ensuite bedrooms (singles, twin, doubles and kings) which can be let individually or as a whole during the winter months and for special occasions. Our other rooms are all advertised on AirBnB. Equally, you will find our house available to book as a whole in a separate advert.
