For a start there's only 1 room, which initially seems a little odd but actually is wonderful as you feel so very special. It's like having your own private country house because the house is indeed lovely, set in its own grounds and beautiful gardens. It's only a 5-10 minute walk into Keswick town center but you are away from... More

Thank you for your lovely review and we were so glad your stay here worked for you. After your very long journey from Atlanta was great that you could just walk and then catch up on sleep in the peace and quiet here. Have literally just seen a red squirrel up Latrigg so will try and arrange that for your... More

My wife and I recently had a fabulous stay at the Briar Rigg House. On arrival we were made to feel extremely welcome and Fiona makes you feel very much at home and relaxed straight away. The room was spacious and even nicer than it looks on the website with a separate bathroom. The bedroom and bathroom are a good... More

My girlfriend and I booked to stay at BRH a few days before our trip and we weren't disappointed. We received a lovely welcome with tea and cake, the room was great and the bed was to die for. Our host was extremely welcoming and friendly and made it her goal to ensure we enjoyed our stay in Keswick. Breakfast... More

My husband and I just spent the most wonderfully relaxing weekend at Briar Rigg House. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking, and Fiona made us feel so welcome and at ease in her beautiful home. After a blustery walk on Saturday my husband was treated to a glass of her fabulous home-made blackberry vodka - I would have partaken but I'm... More

We were so pleased you enjoyed your cosy weekend here in February - not always the most popular time to come but Keswick is quieter and the welcome warmer than the weather ! Glad that you left feeling refreshed & hope to see you here again. More

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Briar Rigg House! I loved the privacy of staying somewhere with only one room. It meant we had the whole sitting room to ourselves, with a lovely log fire and beautiful views of the garden. It also meant we could enjoy our fantastic breakfast in privacy which was good because I... More

We had a wonderful few days at Briar Rigg House which we'd booked on the recommendation of a family member who had given us high expectations. We were not disappointed. From our very first e-mail contact with Fiona, we felt assured of a warm welcome and from arrival we immediately felt 'at home'. Despite the cold outside, our bedroom was... More

My wife and I have just got back from Briarr Rigg and we enjoyed every minute. The weather was perfect (for once in Cumbria) but you almost wanted it to be cold so you could enjoy the warmth and hospitality of Fiona. The promise of a big log fire in a big beautiful house with a fantastic host would have... More

Briar Rigg House was recommended to me by a close friend who had visited in September 2011. When I was making plans to walk the Cumbria way in May, I followed her advice and contacted Fiona Barrett. From the beginning I was delighted with the warmth of the welcome and consideration shown for our needs. The home is lovely. The... More
