Lake District Keswick: Coeliac Friendly Guest House Accommodation specialising in Gluten-Free.

Planning to visit Keswick and have a gluten intollerance?

Situated in the peaceful Lakeland village of Thornthwaite, just three miles from the bustling town of Keswick, Jenkin Hill Cottage is a small, friendly and informal guest house catering exclusively for non-smokers and offering stays on a room only or bed and breakfast basis.

With over 25 yrs experience of catering for coeliacs here is a place where you need not worry about your dietary requirements being met for breakfast, should you choose our bed and breakfast option, so you can enjoy a relaxing (or active) holiday in this beautiful corner of England. We even have gluten free Cumberland sausage produced specially by our Keswick butcher.

Eating out locally for coeliacs has never been easier, with the Middle Ruddings Inn and Royal Oak in Braithwaite or the Bistro at the Lakes Distillery by Bassenthwaite Lake catering for gluten-free, and even more establishments in Keswick itself, including The Chief Justice of the Common Pleas (Wetherspoons) where there is a separate (purple) gluten-free menu, and the Kingfisher for gluten-free fish and chips..

Thornthwaite Village rests between Thornthwaite Forest and Bassenthwaite Lake. This is, an excellent base for visiting Keswick and the North Lakes, and only a half hour's drive from South Lakeland or the Cumbrian coast, or an hour away from Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall. This is a very popular area for ornithologists, with a wide variety of bird life, Bassenthwaite Lake is a National Nature Reserve, well known for its waterfowl, and there is the added bonus of Ospreys nesting just a short distance away.

The village is has the benefit of an excellent bus service, providing access to Cockermouth, Workington and the Coast to the West, and to Keswick and the rest of the Lake District to the East. You can leave your car in our car park and still enjoy great days out.

“An Outstanding B&B”
