“Beautiful B&B in a lovely town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We stayed for one night in this beautiful B&B in the Lake District. We booked online while travelling & were welcomed on arrival by the lovely hostess Sharon. We had a top floor room, which may be a problem if you are unable to climb stairs, we were quite happy with it, I am sure you could request a lower room. Our room was delightful, as was the whole place, from the friendly, smiling owner, to the beautifully decorated rooms with many added extras. The room itself was spacious and clean and quiet, even though it is at the front of the house. Nothing was too much of a problem for the owner and the breakfast served in the dining room was delicious. We were offered hints on places to eat and visit as well as information about the B&B during our stay. I would not hesitate in recommending this place to visitors to the area.

Room Tip: Request a lower room if you are unable to climb stairs.

My husband and I recently spent three very comfortable nights at this lovely B & B. It was absolutely spotless and nothing was too much trouble for our host, Sharon who made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were delicious too. If anyone is planning a break in Keswick we can highly recommend this B & B.

Stayed here for two nights after a recommendation from a friend. We found the owner Sharon to be very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and we could not have wished for better. We would definitely stay here again.

We were looking for a reasonable place for Thursday night before heading to Ambleside. We choose here because of the reviews and price. They were correct; it was clean, everything was there, Sharon provided good directions into town along the railway line, several pubs and good places to eat. The b&b is slightly further out but the short walk or 15 mins max walk is very pleasant along the old railway and we ate at the pheasant pub and the walk back was needed. There is a road opposite for parking. In summary, extremely clean, great friendly host, good room, nice breakfast and a lovely place to visit for our one night.

I just spent 8 days at Burnside. Sharon could not have been nicer or more helpful. Sharon is a native of Keswick, so is a font of information.
Room was spotless, as was dining room, and everything decorated tastefully. Breakfast was always good. Location is at edge of town making this location quieter than something in-town, but it is only steps to bus stops going in or out of Keswick or if one prefers, a short scenic walk into town center.
I could not be more positive on the accomodations here or the location. Keswick is a hub for Lake District transportation and is often recommended in travel books as a preferred city to stay in as a Lake District base.

Hi Rance,

Thank you so very much once again for staying with us for your long trip here in the Lakes.

It seems strange to not have you here this week , where has all the time gone.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed staying here & I know you enjoyed you breakfast each day.

Could you believe it 8 days of wall to wall sunshine fantastic.

I was so happy you were able to do all your walks you planned & as you said Buttermere was the best & I agree.


Good luck with your next trip & hope to see you again one day . Hope your wife may visit with you one day.

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review as I'm sure you must have jet lag.


Best Wishes to you,

Sharon xx

We stayed at Burnside B&B for two nights over the weekend and couldn't have asked for a more pleasant stay! Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean - a lot of effort has been put into the decoration, resulting in traditional but tasteful accommodation that makes for a really comfortable stay. The owner, Sharon, is really friendly and helpful and gave us loads of great tips about things to do in Keswick. (She also seems to be very waste conscious and uses fair trade produce for the breakfasts which I thought was great!) Breakfast was delicious and generous, loads of cereals to choose from, toast, fruit, juices, great coffee and a variety of cooked food. Yum!

I highly recommend Burnside B&B, it really helped make our weekend and is excellent value for the top quality welcome and comfort it provides. I will definitely go back!

I'm so pleased you loved the decor & yes it did take us a long time planning everything, but we think it's all worth while.

We would love to welcome you both again next time you are up this way.

Stayed here for 2 nights (one of which we spent on top of Helvellyn to watch sun set and sun rise)
Sharon is lovely, we are seasoned walkers and visit regularly. This was our first visit to Burnside B&B, but it won't most definitely be the last. Would highly recommend this to all. we stayed in room four, it was very spacious absolutely spotlessly clean and fresh, smelled lovely. Breakfast was most enjoyable (both times, Sharon kept the late slot for us as we didn't get in till 7am after coming down from Helvellyn, which enabled us to have 2 hours sleep) especially the local free range eggs.If you are like us and just want to walk the fells till late and want a home from home that is welcoming to lay your tired head and aching legs then you could do no better than Burnside.

Good evening to you both,

Many thanks for your very kind words.

It was lovely to meet you both & thank you for booking with us.

Hope you have recovered after your long night out on the hills, should have had a mini bed up there for you, would it have helped?

Hope to see you both again ,

Best Wishes to you both,
