Me, my Wife and our Shar Pei (Snuggles) have stayed at the Dancing Beck on numerous occasions over the past few years, we have visited many different hotels/B&B around the world. I find it very easy for me to say that, on every single visit the warmth, homeliness and welcome feel to the B&B make it a treat and a... More

Room spacious,with everything you need could not be faulted. Modern en suite which was clean and tidy had a nice feel to the room and the whole house. The breakfast was freshly cooked local produce,and the view from the window beats the view from my window any day,it was enchanting. A couple we met had been going there for 7... More

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

Room was very clean, king size bed & linen so comfortable. Ensuite finished to a high standard. Lots of wildlife in the garden.... 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
