Dancing Beck
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We have been to Dancing Becks a number of times and will continue to go back. Good accommodation and excellent host. The breakfasts are as good as ive had anywhere.
If the sun is shining there is a wonderful garden and summer house to relax in.
I would have no doubts about recommending Dancing Becks to anyone - in fact a number of our friends have been and now recommend it to other friends.

Room Tip: Front room gives an excellent view of peaks around Keswick. Back room overlooks an area developed fo...

The position of Dancing Beck cannot be bettered. It has wonderful views from all windows, including the feeding of red squirrels from the back bedroom window. It is very peaceful yet only a 5 minute drive from the lovely town of Keswick. Lyn, the landlady, is extremely accommodating. Nothing is too much for her. Breakfast is the best! Thoroughly recommended.

This is a great little B&B. It only has 3 rooms which makes it very cosy. It is immaculately clean and beautifully furnished/decorated. Lyn is a great host and cooks a mean breakfast. I had room 3 which overlooks the garden where you can see red squirrels feeding.

Just bear in mind there are no pubs or restaurants in walking distance - you have to drive or get a taxi - but don't let that put you off - this is a great little place to stay.

The views at the front are stunning. There is a summerhouse in the garden which we sat outside of drinking a bottle of wine and soaking up the view.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms, one has a view of the garden, one of the hills and not sure about the third...

Dancing Beck is a wonderful find. A real gem in the lakes , as is the hostess , Lyn. The detached house is full of charm and character. The rooms are very good; clean and finished well . Out side are lovely gardens. Location is superb . There are amazing views and although only a short distance to the A66, making it so easy to get to, once you are there you feel as though you are well away from hustle and bustle. However , Keswick is only a 5 - 10min drive . Lyn is a wonderful hostess , warm and welcoming. Her breakfasts are great too . All in all , Dancing Beck is an out standing and exceptional Bed and Breakfast . Highly Recommended .

Ask me any question and my reply will be excellent! Big rooms, very clean, big modern clean ensuite bathrooms. Quiet location with fantastic views over the valley. We chose the rear facing bedroom to watch the red squirels feeding on the peanuts. We sat in the garden one evening with a bottle of wine. Located 2 miles from Keswick so central for everything the Lake Distric can offer! There is even a walk located just a few yards along he road. The owner was very friendly, helpful, and she freshly cooked a breakfast to match any decent hotel. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Did I mention the views from the breakfast table!! And for something different, ask to see the pet wallabys. We will be back!!!!

What a brilliant place to start our week in the Lakes. The rooms are very clean and the view from our bedroom was stunning. Well done Lyn on providing a lovely stay and we are sad it was only one night. We will be back.

Dancing beck is such a old fashioned charming English bed and breakfast. We loved it, and can't wait to return. We stayed in room 3,it was spacious,so clean and the decor is to a high standard.
We enjoyed watching the wildlife from the windows,looking onto the garden. Red squirrel,birds, further along the garden is walabies and hens.
Breakfast was gorgeous. The whole experience was relaxing. The owner mentioned that in summer you could go to the summer house with a bottle of wine, and enjoy the uninterrupted views from there. For 32.50 each, what more could you ask for?

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3, so can only advise on this room, which was lovely.
