What a gem! I agree with everything that has been written about Gerry and Trevor's wonderful b&b. We had room 2 with a magnificent view over the hills. Very comfortable with everything you could possibly need and anything else was just a request away. Breakfast was one of the best we've had - thanks Trevor for sharing your poached egg... More

Excellent place to stay so clean, attention to detail perfect, all the little extra's you would like to find in a b&b, made it even more special. Also very close to town, only 2 mins walk. Breakfast was delicious. Gerry and Trevor were fantastic hosts-very friendly and helpful.Hope to return someday.

Geraldine and Steven made us feel so at home with their clean and comfortable accommodation,their friendliness and assistance, their wonderful cooked to order breakfasts, especially Steven's scrambled eggs. The B&B is centrally situated within walking distance of eateries, shops and other amenities. The provision of designated parking was also a big plus as in some areas parking is a major... More

Trevor and Gerry were genuinely warm and welcoming hosts from the moment we arrived and throughout our 3 night stay. Scrumptious breakfasts with plenty of options from fresh, local produce. Brierholme is a home from home - warm, comfortable and relaxed but with the little touches of luxury to make you feel really looked after. Excellent location as well, just... More

A wonderful homely guest house in an excellent location with hosts who made us feel welcome from the word GO. Top that with an excellent breakfast and we realise we have discovered a guest house we will be more than happy to use again and again for our walking holidays in the area.

Brierholme is very centrally sited in Keswick - just off the main street so traffic is not a problem. There is also ample free parking for guests. The accommodation is immaculate, the welcome genuine and the breakfasts of high quality and cooked to order. The owners have a real love for what they do and take the time to give... More

We recently stayed at Brierholme for the second time and were not let down. Gerry and Trevor were fabulous hosts, the room was lovely and the breakfasts really set us up for the day. We stayed in room 7 which had twin beds converted into a wonderfully comfortable super king - perfect for stretching out after a days on the... More

This is a cracking B and B with a wonderfully warm welcome, great service and lovely breakfast. In most aspects it was 5*, unfortunately the tiny en- suite bathroom in Room 7, particularly the sink the size of a breakfast bowl means I can only go for 4*. However the room affords a perfect picture postcard view of Catbells which... More

I haven't stayed in many B&Bs in my time, but it was pretty obvious that Brierholme is a cut above from the moment we arrived. The rooms are beautifully and comfortably finished, with ours having a stunning view over Catbells and those to the rear looking out to Latrigg. Though it's incredibly central (a 60 second walk from the centre... More
