We spent four nights at this lovely B&B about a five minute drive out of Keswick. Our room was clean and spacious, very well appointed, comfortable, and overlooked a lovely back garden where red squirrels, woodpeckers, finches and a family of voles could be observed. The bathroom was fabulous. The dining room was light and airy, with sweeping country views... More

Dancing Beck is an amazing place to stay while exploring the Lakes. The gardens that Lyn keeps are really wonderful with an old croquet lawn - the perfect English garden! From the house (an old Victorian school) you can explore the surrounding area easily with forests around for walking and Keswick within 5 mins drive. The rooms are very clean... More

What a find this place is, didn't even look at any others after reading the reviews. Just a few minutes drive from Keswick & only a few hundred yards up a narrow road from the main road. If you want peace & quiet you've found it but still nicely located for trips into the main towns, it is an ideal... More

Me my husband and the dog stayed here 10th to 12th. It's a cute place with a great breakfast. There are 3 rooms of which they all have their best features.... However we stayed in room 3 with views of the gardens and squirrels and with a full bathroom. It's out of main town Keswick in a very peaceful location... More

Dancing beck is truly a real find, The host lyn, is a treasure, very helpful, and kind. Her breakfasts are of the best quality, cooked really well, and served in a lovely dining room overlooking catbells, grisedale, and newlands. The gardens are fantastic, and resemble a nature reserve at times, what with red squirrels visiting, resident wallabies,hens, and birdsong. Within... More

During out trip up north to Scotland we decided to go via the Lake District and found a charming guest house called Dancing Beck, under Skiddaw. It was well appointed and had magnificant views across the green landscape, with the Fells beyond. Close to Keswick and other attractions, it was the perfect launching pad for visits to these places. When... More

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
