Burnside B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We spent four night at Burnside B&B during August bank holiday.  We were made to feel welcome from the start by Sharon. The room was clean and extremely well equipped and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent: I loved the vegetarian sausage! Sharon has been extremely helpful, from the information on the walks to take, to the restaurant to try in town.

This is an excellent B&B. Next time we'll stay here again. Thank you.

My husband and I stayed in the Burnside B&B for a few nights during the bank holiday . This was our first time visiting the lake district. Sharon is a brilliant hostess, very knowledgeable about the areas and recommended some brilliant walks. The breakfast was top notch , I am especially impressed by the vegetarian sausage: beat the meat anytime :). The room was spotless and with amenities beyond your expectations. I highly recommend Burnside to anyone who want to have a relaxing yet adventurous trip in Cumbria!

We spent two delightful nights at Burnside B&B. The house and the rooms were very nice and comfortable and the breakfast excellent and enough for a great part of a walker's day. Sharon was very helpful for walking tips and also when my husband had some health problems.
I definately recommend this B&B !

Have just spent a lovely few days in Keswick staying at the Burnside B&B and been made to feel most welcome. The owner Sharon couldn't have been more helpful, always there to answer any queries we had concerning eating out, nice places to visit and anything else we needed to ask her and always with a big smile on her face. Our en suite room was spacious and spotlessly clean with everything you would expect, the added extra being the teddy bear, who's position changed on a daily basis on our return to our room, we always wondered where he would turn up next!! Plenty of choice on the breakfast menu and very well cooked and served in a lovely cosy room with a wood burning fire, by the ever smiling Sharon. I had a different choice of breakfast every morning and was never disappointed, I can also vouch for the full English, as my partner enjoyed it every morning, all good quality ingredients. Located a 10/15 min walk from the market square, or a £2.90 taxi fare from our friendly taxi driver Eric. Spoiled for choice for eating places, we tried The Pheasant Inn and Sienna's, both excellent, and you must try the renowned Goulash at The Dog and Gun.....delicious! Agree with the other reviewers that this B&B is a little gem.

Room Tip: Quite a few stairs to top floor, request a lower room if any walking difficulties.

We stayed for four nights. The b&b was lovely and homely. Sharon was very friendly and helpful from the start to the end.

The breakfasts were lovely with a large selection. They kept us full for a large proportion of the day. The porridge was lovely and creamy and my partner was very taken with the omlettes.

I would definitely recommend the place and was in a good position to explore the lakes. We went all over the south, central, West and east lakes.

From the time you arrive to the sad departure, you feel very welcome at Sharon and Pete's B&B. The standard of the rooms and the extras provided make your stay comfortable and relaxed. You know at the end of a tiring day you will go back to a warm and cosy room where you will be able to get a good rest for the next enjoyable day. In the morning you are given a cheery greeting and a wonderful breakfast to get you energized for the day ahead. This has been a lovely stay and I would recommend Sharon and Pete's B&B to anyone visiting who wants a friendly and relaxing stay.
We will be back as soon as we can.

A warm and welcoming place to stay. Sharon and Pete really make you welcome and have lots of local knowledge that they are happy to pass on if asked. The rooms are top notch, clean and comfortable, with all you need for a relaxing stay. The breakfast menu provides for a variety of diets and there is always enough to set you up for the day. We will continue to visit this really great B&B, because we are never disappointed, no matter what time of the year we are in the lakes.
Thanks to Sharon and Pete.

Room Tip: Room No.2 is a family room, but makes a really spacious double room for a couple.
