Once again I cannot rate this B&B high enough . Great hosts , great rooms, great location & excellent breakfasts !! I stayed in the attic room which was very spacious clean and modern with all that you need . This had a great view of Skiddaw . Would definitely stay again without a doubt .

My partner and I recently stayed at Brierholme for two nights at the end of a 10 day trip touring around Scotland and the north of England. During this trip, we stayed in a number of B&Bs, all of which were very good. None of them, however, came close to comparing with Brierholme. In fact, we can't recall ever having stayed in such a great B&B - Trevor and Geraldine really take the experience to a new level!

Not only are they welcoming, they are very happy to share their in-depth knowledge of the area, which for newcomers such as ourselves was a real asset. Geraldine even provided us with a walk she had written herself which allowed us to explore the area at a level which suited us.

Add to this a top-notch breakfast comprising locally sourced ingredients, wonderful views from the rooms, and clean and comfortable accommodation, and you have a winning combination! If we ever return to Keswick, Brierholme will without doubt be our first choice.

Room Tip: We stayed in the attic room - it's a lovely cosy den, and we'd probably choose it again, but...

I've said this before and I'll say it again - if you're heading to Keswick, The Brierholme Guest House is one of the best places you could hope to stay.

Geri and Trevor are fantastic people and genuinely care about your stay. They do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable at possible, and their premises are second to none!

If you don't believe me, have a night there and you'll see what I mean.

We have just returned from another excellent weekend at Brierholme!
It was great to see Gerry & Trevor again and, as always, we received a really warm welcome. We were very late arriving on Friday evening but nothing was too much trouble and we soon felt the stresses of a busy week evaporate as we dropped off our bags and wandered the short distance into town (just in time for last orders).
We stayed for two nights in room 2 which has fantastic views of Keswick and the surrounding fells through a huge bay window. It is beautifully decorated with a lovely modern bathroom.
On Sunday morning we woke up early and tackled Latrigg (just a short walk away) before sitting down to enjoy Trevor's legendary breakfast which set us up nicely for the day's exploring in nearby Buttermere & Elterwater.
Another perfect weekend with amazing hosts in a beautiful setting.
We can't wait to visit Brierholme again and we have already booked our next trip later in the year!

Another lovely weekend staying at our favourite Lake District B&B. As always a warm welcome, a comfy spotlessly clean room ( Room 7 has a great view of Skiddaw and Lattrigg mountains ) and of course Trevor's excellent breakfasts.

Hope to be back very soon
Marge and Geoff

Room Tip: Room 7 as well being a comfy newly decorated room has brilliant views.

My husband and I stayed three nights in room 6 on the second floor of Brierholme in May 2014, and are happy to join the fan club of this lovely guesthouse. It is so pleasant and comfortable and quiet, and Trevor and Gerry are sincerely friendly and happy people. Wonderful breakfast with great options whether you want something light -- fresh fruit, yogurt and muesli -- or to fuel up for a long walk uphill with the full English. Under no circumstances should you miss the housemade lemon and orange marmalades!
