Reviewed 29 July 2014

We stayed at this b&b for 4 nights and had a very pleasant time. Our room was lovely and very clean with a comfortable bed (however the shower was a bit small). The breakfast's were lovely although there could have been a wider choice available.We were always offered extra toast which meant the breakfasts were great value for money as well as being offered extra bacon when my girlfriend did not have an egg on her full english. We had a very comfortable stay and Sharon was very friendly and helpful. We had excellent weather and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If we are in the area we will definitely be back again for a visit.

We stayed for 6 nights in this excellent B&B in Keswick. Breakfast was simply delicious and our hostess was so kind and helpful. We all felt very welcome and our son always looked forward to go back in the evenings to see where teddy was hiding. Rooms were spotless and very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this B&B. Thank you Sharon for such a lovely stay xx

Hi Sharon,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review.
It was an absolute pleasure looking after you all here at Burnside & hope you will get the chance to return one day.

I was really pleased the weather was so kind to you , I did tell you when you booked a year ago that I would order you some sunshine & I did.

Thank you once again for choosing to stay here, it was great to meet you & your lovely family.

Hope your journey back to Malta went well.

Best Wishes,

Sharon.xxx

Lovely b&b! Stayed after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and they were not wrong. The b&b is exceptionally clean and the hostess Sharon is lovely. Excellent breakfast in the morning too. Will definitely be staying here again.

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.

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.
