“Outstanding B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

We couldn't fault this beautiful b&b in Keswick...every aspect of the accommodation was perfect and our room (no4) was the perfect size for our 3 night stay! Sharon was extremely welcoming and helped us out with requests on several occasions (from peas to pain relief)! A special mention to the waffles at breakfast which are AMAZING - I'd suggest trying them with bacon...sounds strange but tastes fabulous! Thank you for a real home from home stay...will recommend to friends highly!

Having stopped in Keswick many times over the years, always in different places we now know where to stay next time. Burnside is tastefully decorated, extremely clean and most welcoming. breakfast is high quality and served with a smile that brightens your day. Sharon runs Burnside with a passion that needs to be experienced.

We stayed for 4 nights as a couple in the smaller double room (Room 1). Sharon was a great host and made every effort to make us feel welcome and offer advice on eateries, etc. The house was very clean and the breakfasts were great. The parking was easy (often an issue with other places in Keswick we've been to), and the location great - handy for the A66 to come and go with relative ease whilst still being within comfortable distance of the town centre (about 15-20 minutes walk or a short drive) - handy for the local BP garage as well. I've been to the Lakes many times over the years, and this is probably the best B&B in the area we've stayed at so far. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 1 that we stayed in is on the small side but we knew it was going to be as we had paid a bit le...

Recently stayed for a long weekend at Burnside B & B Keswick. No hesitation whatsoever in recommending this B & B. Hosts, Sharon and Pete, really special in their warmth and hospitality. Room so comfortable and gorgeous breakfast. Such a lovely relaxing atmosphere hard not to have a great time. Only a short stroll into Keswick Town, along the old railway track if preferred so location excellent. This B & B is the top of mine and my wifes list. Don't bother looking any further if planning a stay in Keswick. Outstanding!

On first impressions, this B&B does not look or feel unlike countless others I have stayed in during a lifetime of holidays in the lakes and they do say you don't get a second chance to make a first impression. However on settling into the clean, well appointed room, all that changes.

The attention to detail is exceptional, from the superb breakfast that on each occasion allowed me to skip lunch without even missing it (My choice of porridge was the very best I had tasted since my Scottish mum cooked it for me until I left home 40 years ago. Oh and the locally sourced Bacon and Sausage....That alone is worth the room rate.

The Bedroom and shower room were cleaned to a level where my wife, who usually wipes down every sanitary surface with a disinfected cloth before unpacking anything...just unpacked.

Not a thing was out of place and not a spot of dust or grime anywhere.

Sharon seems to work at an extraordinary rate appearing to be their whenever you need assistance, but somehow invisible when you don't which appears (to me) to be a very good trick or a delicate skill. Either way it is just what I need. Oh yes and she has a lovely welcoming smile.

The B&B itself is very close to the Keswick Railway Line Walk (the track closed in 1972) within 2 minutes you can be on it, walking into keswick in about 10 to 15 minutes in virtual silence or in the other direction a perfect early morning walk (before that breakfast) will take you a few times over the meandering fast flowing river Greta and eventually on to Penrith
(although that is some 12 -15 miles distance).

But to sum up.

Superb
