This lovely building is in a great location and as long as everything is chugging along ok - it's great. It's clean and warm and everything works. We wouldn't go back though. As has been commented on many times the lady (owner?) can at times be pleasant and helpful and at times huffy and abrupt. We actually felt uncomfortable interacting... More

Traditional quaint Bed & Breakfast. Breakfasts were great, but only served from 8:15 to 9:15 - fine for us but maybe not for people who like to get up late. Our e-suite room was very comfortable. Owner friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to go, and even assisted me in when I made a cockup of ironing my wife's... More

Well managed but impersonal. Rooms are clean and well kept but don't expect more than one small soap (between two) or for it, or shampoos etc.to be renewed during your stay! Also be careful which room you chose as stairs might be a problem. Parking also can be problematic as only two spaces for guests and free on street parking... More

We had the wonderful fortune to stay in the Burleigh Suite, what a wow factor that room is, the views from the large bay window are breath taking. We sat just taking in the view, watching people and generally chilling out. The breakfasts were varied and compliments to the chef. Our host Gill was pleasant and attentive, we would highly... More

Just returned from a two night stay in the Burleigh Suite the room was spotless and the bed and bedding were top class Breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice. The owner Gill was very helpful and welcoming. Would very much like to visit again as the views over the park to the mountains are spectacular

We came to Keswick's Burleigh Mead in the middle of a 2700 km 2 week driving blitz through the UK, and it was meant to be the one relaxing peaceful nature getaway in the middle to help us recover. But there was a "mountain festival" going on for ALL THREE DAYS of our stay. Management HADN'T TOLD US WHEN WE... More

Keswick is a fine small town in the Lake District with a wonderful pedestrian center with lots of shops and pubs, but it is smaller and more accessible than Ambleside or Windemere. The Heads ia a small hill overlooking the pack by the lake. where there are several B&B's. The Burliegh Mead is in the middle and it was a... More

We had the suite at the top of the house & it was really comfortable. We had a good sleep on their luxurious beds and... More
