We recently spent 5 nights staying at Briar Rigg House, probably the best B&B we have ever stayed at. It suited us admirably. Comfortable, friendly, peaceful, easy walking to town centre, excellent breakfasts, spacious bedroom and own sitting room with log burning stove, what more could we ask for? All the previous reviews say it all. Thank you Fiona for... More

I spent two nights at Briar Rigg House last week, and despite the wintery weather, had the most wonderful time. Fiona was more than welcoming, she made me feel entirely at home, and was so helpful as well. The room is extremely comfortable, with every single item one could possible need provided. The bathroom is great, with lovely local soaps... More

We were looking for an idyllic place to spend our November wedding anniversary. Briar Rigg House more than exceeded our expectations.

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
