“Excellent B&B - hope to return soon”
Reviewed 16 May 2011

This was the first time that we stayed at Burnside and we were definately not disappointed. Sharon was really welcoming throughout our stay offering advice on local walks and restaurants. She was always keen to assist us whatever the scenario. The room that we stayed in was room 4 at the front of the property, it was really spacious and absolutely spotless, The breakfasts were delicious. Burnside is located approximately a mile from Keswick town centre which took approximately 10 minutes walking along a main road. I would definately recommend this B&B and we hope to stay there again at some point in the future.

This was our third stay in just under a year. I previously gave high praise on this website and have no reason to change my view of Burnside. Wonderful, friendly and helpful hosts running a spotless establishment. Sharon and Pete always exceed our expectations as hosts.

On our most recent trip my partner and I did pretty much five days of full on walking including being blasted by highwinds on Skiddaw! It was a joy to return to Burnside's hot shower and comfy bed. The hearty breakfasts also set us up for the day!

I've lost count of the number of times my wife and I have stayed at Burnside in the last two years (at least 7-8). Keswick, and Burnside in particular has become our haven, to which we retreat when we need to recharge the batteries. The welcome by Sharon and Pete has always been superb, as have the quality of the rooms and breakfasts. This time was no exception, with the added bonus of perfect weather.

We can't wait to return later in the year for our next visit.

Burnside was great value for money. The stand out points were definitely the great service and the breakfasts!

We asked about walks and places to eat and were immediately given some great recommendations as well as some maps. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious - Burnside is worth revisiting for the waffles!

The location was great for walks. It's within walking distance of Keswick centre although the walk back after a meal in the evening could be a bit tiring as it was up hill. However, there are taxis.

Burnside was well decorated - modern but with character. Everything was clean and tidy and our host was very welcoming. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

After much deliberation, my partner and I chose Burnside B & B and we were not disappointed with our choice. From the inital booking to walking out the door at the end of our stay, Sharon and Peter could not have been more helpful. The accommodation itself was immaculate and the breakfast choice and quality was to die for. My only regret, not tasting the banana waffles and toffee sauce !! The accommodation is only a 15 minute walk into Keswick along the old railway line. It's very central and we didn't have to use the car for the 3 days we stayed there. Our room was large and comfortable. We would highly recommend this B & B and we shall definitely return. Thank you Sharon and Peter for making our stay perfect :-)

The house is tastefully furnished and decorated to a high standard. Sharon and Peter are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfasts are good, with a wide range of cooked options as well as fruit, cereal, toast, pots of tea and coffee, etc. It is well situated for a pleasant walk down into Keswick along the old railway track (about 15 min) and a good starting point for several longer walks, e.g. Lattrig (+ Skiddaw if you're fit enough!), Castle Rig Stone Circle or Walla Crag. No real need to use your car once you're there.
