This B&B, located just outside of Keswick, was a real find. We stayed on Room 1, which gave us views of the fells overlooking the Derwentwater e.g Cat Bells, The Burrow etc. For anyone interested in hiking, there is a footpath that will take you up to the top of Skiddow (931 metres), within a 10 minute walk. The B&B... More

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Dancing Beck. We were in room 1 with amazing views. The bed was probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in at a B&B or hotel, and thus I slept soundly! We loved the location. It's a very quick drive into Keswick and the lake, and there are plenty of walks... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Lyn. Nothing was too much trouble, our dog was welcomed too. Lovely room, great breakfasts, excellent service and good value for money. We will be back soon. (Hopefully the weather will be just as good)

Stayed for a long weekend with my boyfriend. The gardens of the property were beautiful and the view from the room was lovely. The rooms were very clean and had everything you need. The owner was very nice and her breakfast was to die for! It's quite a walk from the town of Keswick but on a warm summers evening... More

My husband and I spent a few days in the lakes recently. Our plan was to stay at a different B&B each night so we could travel around. We stayed at Dancing Beck on our third night and that was is it, we were completely sold!! It is in the most idyllic setting the views from the bedrooms were stunning.... More

Having done some research as to where to stay in the Lake District we choose this place. It is located 2-3 miles outside of Keswick. It is quite isolated but the views are truly stunning. Our host was very hospitable, the room was very comfortable. One thing that I really appreciated was the isolation, away from all the tourist centres.... More

My wife and I stopped for 2 nights at Dancing Beck and would have loved to have stopped longer. It is really a boutique hotel but without the usual mark up in price that usually accompanies that tag. It offers fantastic value for money given the quality of the accommodation and its fabulous setting, below Skiddaw and overlooking the Bassenthwaite... More
