A stylish and contemporary design. Christine and Liz are your hosts at Hedgehog Hill. Everybody is welcome in their comfortable Four Star Guest House in Keswick. Hedgehog Hill has stunning fell views including Skiddaw, Latrigg at the front and Walla Crag at the rear. The B&B is ideally situated in a quiet street and is approximately three minutes walk from the centre of Keswick. Keswick is bustling with real ale pubs, restaurants, cafes and a variety of other shops. The Theatre by the Lake, 100 year old cinema 'The Alhambra' and beautiful Lake Derwentwater a few minutes walk away.

We have recently renovated our attic en suite room. This is a superior room in every aspect. The highlight being one side is all window therefore the view of Skiddaw, Latrigg and Blencathra is truly incredible. Cat bells can also be seen out of the rear window.

We think it is the best room in Keswick.

“I stayed at Hedgehog Hill for a couple of nights in October. The accommodation is very close to the Lake and the town. Both are very beautiful and the view of the hills beyond was lovely from our room. Proprietors are wonderfully friendly and ready with advice about the area. Room was spotless with very large comfy bed and pristine en-suite. The full English breakfast was just right with perfectly poached eggs and Chris, who looked after us all at breakfast, was so friendly attentive. Just a perfect stay and I highly recommend. We’ll certainly be staying again.”

“Great B&B
We stayed for two night and everything was great. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely. Hosts are friendly and very accommodating.
Great location, 2 minute walk into town.”


"1st Class... This was our third visit to Hedgehog Hill after Chris and Liz took it over about three years ago and completely refurbished and redecorated the whole of the accommodation. We were delighted on our arrival to be told that the new room in the attic was now finished and we were its first guests. It's absolutely lovely, so spacious, light and airy, with fabulous views of Catbells, Skiddaw and Lattrigg. We have nicknamed it "the penthouse suite." So much care has been taken with the decor and colour schemes, in the main area and in each of the bedrooms we have occupied. It's always a pleasure to stay there and now we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on our annual visits to Keswick.

The breakfasts are all quality products, cooked beautifully, and Chris and Liz are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you feel at home. "
