Me and my girlfriend stayed in Burnside B&B for three nights - Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The place is very nice, very clean and lovely decorated. We were in room 4, which was on the top floor. Nice warm room, with a nice big and comfy bed. Large flat screen Philips on the other side wall, so perfect for chilling... More

I stayed in this B&B for two nights in the lovely room 2. The room was immaculate, very big and spacious. Connected to the wifi no problem (not always easy). Karen and Peter are great hosts and made me feel very welcome. Sharon cooked up a lovely breakfast, delicious. Will definitely return to this B&B if I travel to Keswick... More

Returned for the first time in around two years. Standards are still very high, this was a lovely weekend break. Stayed in room 2 which is very spacious. Huge bay windows overlooking a wooded area. This was very peaceful on a Sunday morning. Veggie breakfast highly recommended. See my previous reviews for further high praise.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely B&B. Sharon is a very welcoming host and the rooms are spotless,warm and beautifully decorated in period style it is obvious Burnside is Sharon and Peters home not just a business. We will definitely recommend to family and friends and look forward to returning ourselves.
