ABOUT MAPLE BANK

Parking
car park We have substantial off-road parking available for our guests at the B&B - two spaces at the front of the house, and five at the rear - in a bespoke car park.  Parking is free and gives our guests the convenience of being able to unload the car, as well as allowing you to enjoy the local walks that are right on our doorstep.
Maple Bank is a dog-friendly bed-and-breakfast and our four-legged guests are very welcome.  Tara – our resident Border Terrier – is happy to share the large garden behind the house.  The garden is fully enclosed and netted: a safe space to let your pooch stretch their legs after you arrive, or to pop down to first thing in the morning, or just before bedtime.

walkersAll the rooms have en-suite showers for you to enjoy after a long day out.

Any muddy and wet boots can be left on the boot-stand in the inner porch or on paper in front of the radiator in the downstairs hall.  Wet and muddy outer clothes can also be hung up in the inner porch.  We can also hang clothes to dry out in the private bathroom if it isn't being used by guests in Room 8.

 

The local bus stop is two mins from the front door so it's easy to get out to surrounding areas – Keswick, Cockermouth, Ambleside, Lorton, Buttermere and Windermere - if you want to leave your car behind.

You can collect sandwiches and pasties from The Village Shop in Braithwaite or have them made up for you to order by the local tea shop: Hobcartons.

We have a secure out house for your bikes, as well as an outside hose to use to clean your bikes off if necessary.

We are very close to Bassenthwaite Lake or Derwent Water, as well as Windermere, where you can enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, dinghy sailing, dragon boats and canoeing. The local bus stop is two mins from the front door. And you're very welcome to hang up any waterproofs to dry off overnight.
Keswick Launderette We don’t have any laundry facilities for our guests at Maple Bank however Keswick Laundry does offer a same day service wash if you drop your wash in by 10am. And if anything needs ironing, then it’s a next day collection. Really handy if you’re away for a while and need to pop some things through the wash.  They can also send away any dry cleaning, which is about a 3-day turnaround.
