We have been to Dancing Beck many times since we discovered it several years ago. We cannot fault it, we always stay in room 3 and our dog is allowed to join us. It is a very relaxing place to stay and we never want to leave at the end of our stay. Lyn has become our friend now rather... More

My wife and I recently stayed hear, and were amazed at how beautiful the place was. Firstly, the property is incredible, it was an old school and completely renovated to a very high specification. The room that we stayed in (No.3) was fantastic. So comfortable, with a beautiful en-suite. We would definatley recommend this place.

Back in the 1980's we almost bought this house, attracted by its character and views, but decided it was too much of a project. Fortunately, someone else took it on and provided the TLC it desperately needed, and last week we were able to enjoy the results of their hard work. We were welcomed on a cold, gloomy November afternoon... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was the perfect mini break. Its only a 5 minute drive from keswick so close enough to a town if you need it but far enough away for total peace and quiet. The house itself and the grounds are beautiful and the same goes for the room. The host lyn is very welcoming... More

We have been to Dancing Becks a number of times and will continue to go back. Good accommodation and excellent host. The breakfasts are as good as ive had anywhere. If the sun is shining there is a wonderful garden and summer house to relax in. I would have no doubts about recommending Dancing Becks to anyone - in fact... More

The position of Dancing Beck cannot be bettered. It has wonderful views from all windows, including the feeding of red squirrels from the back bedroom window. It is very peaceful yet only a 5 minute drive from the lovely town of Keswick. Lyn, the landlady, is extremely accommodating. Nothing is too much for her. Breakfast is the best! Thoroughly recommended.

This is a great little B&B. It only has 3 rooms which makes it very cosy. It is immaculately clean and beautifully furnished/decorated. Lyn is a great host and cooks a mean breakfast. I had room 3 which overlooks the garden where you can see red squirrels feeding. Just bear in mind there are no pubs or restaurants in walking... More

Dancing Beck is a wonderful find. A real gem in the lakes , as is the hostess , Lyn. The detached house is full of charm and character. The rooms are very good; clean and finished well . Out side are lovely gardens. Location is superb . There are amazing views and although only a short distance to the A66,... More

Ask me any question and my reply will be excellent! Big rooms, very clean, big modern clean ensuite bathrooms. Quiet location with fantastic views over the valley. We chose the rear facing bedroom to watch the red squirels feeding on the peanuts. We sat in the garden one evening with a bottle of wine. Located 2 miles from Keswick so... More

What a brilliant place to start our week in the Lakes. The rooms are very clean and the view from our bedroom was stunning. Well done Lyn on providing a lovely stay and we are sad it was only one night. We will be back.
