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

Just returned from a two night stay at the Burleigh Mead & can't fault the place. Friendly welcome from the owners & the breakfasts are perfect. Plenty of choice and the food is well cooked. 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

We stayed at the Burleigh Mead for three nights after our planned holiday rental in Troutbeck had to be cut short. We expected very little availability in the height of summer but found this beautiful B&B in Keswick which had superb views from its south sided rooms of Catbells and Derwentwater lake. The rooms were immaculately clean and the decor... More

We spent 4 nights at this B&B. The views from our room overlooked Hope Park and the mountains--absolutely beautiful. You were within walking distance of Keswick and they had ample free parking so you had no problems with using your car for excursions, in fact Jill encourage you to explore. Jill was very hospitable. After hiking Catbells (great hike) we... More

We spent three lovely nights in the Burleigh Suite in June 2014. The room appointments are exquisite and the breakfast was among the finest we had during our entire three week trip. (Try the smoked mackerel pate for breakfast!) The view from the bay window was fantastic and the staff were most helpful with hiking information. The wifi was iffy,... More

We arrived by car from Manchester after an all night flight from the U.S. So ,we were very pleased to be met by our gracious host who had us sit, rest and enjoy a welcomed pot of tea and cake. Our room overlooked the park and we could just... More
