Burnside B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 May 2014

3rd stay here and once again had a fabulous experience. Sharon and Peter very welcoming and the breakfasts are amazing, I particularly love the waffles! We visited for the Keswick Mountain Festival and were taking part in an event. Sharon very kindly gave us an earlier than usual breakfast and allowed us to store our bikes at the back of the property. We will definitely be back.

This is not the first time we have stayed at Burnside B & B and it certainly won't be the last. Tasteful décor throughout, immaculately clean rooms, friendly hosts and the best breakfast ever! What more could you ask? Thank you for making our visits to the Lake District extra special.

A fabulous B&B.
Immaculate, comfortable surroundings and great breakfast.
The beds are very comfortable, the family room was quiet and warm with enough space to accommodate the 3 of us very easily.
Perfectly situated in Keswick with convenient parking nearby.
Sharon is very friendly and helpful and pays great attention to detail.
Not knowing the area, we were grateful for her dining recommendations which turned out to be "spot on", her local knowledge was invaluable to us and helped us to make the best use of our limited time during a two night stay. We hope to return and would happily recommend Burnside to anyone wishing to stay in Keswick or nearby. Deb B

This was our third visit to Burnside, we had a fantastic weekend, and were looked after by the very wonderful Sharon. She works so hard and makes everyone feel welcome. The home made waffles with banana, sultana and toffee sauce are the perfect way to start the day for those of us with a sweet tooth!! We stayed again in Room 4 which is very comfortably furnished and will no doubt stay in this room again in the not too distant future. Perfectly located for exploring the lakes and Keswick, the best B&B we have stayed at in the UK...!

thanks Sharon for a great weekend...
Brian & Vickie

Room Tip: Room 4 is our fave...just don't book it when we want to go!!!

Since I last reviewed the Burnside B&B we've stayed a few more times and, at the risk of sounding boring, it's as perfect as ever. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless, and the breakfasts still fantastic (in fact this time due to our late arrival, Sharon offered to make sandwiches so we weren't hungry overnight! - we didn't need them). Sharon is really friendly and makes you feel right at home It is our first choice location for a stay in the Lake District and will be, hopefully, for years to come. It's a shame the rating only goes up to 5!
