Over the past 10 years I have regularly visited Keswick together with my wife and close friends. On these visits we have usually stayed in Guest Houses/B&B and ocassionally Hotels which in truth have been O.K. This weekend however we were fortunate enough to get 2 double rooms at the Brierholme and what a treat it was! From the moment we arrived we received a warm welcome from Jerry (who also guided us to their designated free parking outside!) and throughout our stay the whole experience was excellent. The rooms with newly re0furbished bathrooms were just brilliant, warm, comfy, spotless with all the little extras you would only expect from expensive Hotels, Wine glasses, biottled water, make-up removal pads, 'Q' tips, tissues, radio alarm, T.V. Tea/coffee making etc and then the 'Breakfast' which is simply superb!
If you want class accommodation in Keswick, then look no further - because you won't find better!

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 5 and 6.

Very warm welcome from Trevor & Gerry, who were friendly hosts throughout my weekend stay.
My room was nicely fitted out & looked like it had been redecorated relatively recently, with a particularly nice ensuite shower & toilet room.
The full English breakfast was large enough that I chose a smaller option the next morning. Trevor & Gerry seemed happy for me to have a breakfast made up of any given combination of what they had available, as well as things from the buffet - What I'm trying to say is that there was plenty of choice!
The B&B is situated very close to the centre of Keswick - a 3 minute walk, max.
If I had to criticise anything, it was a little cold in my room in the morning. But since I had control of the radiator, that was probably my own fault.
I was visiting Keswick for a wedding and I would definitely consider staying here again, if I came back with my girlfriend.

We received a very warm welcome from Geraldine before settling into our very comfortable, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated bedroom with a wealth of extras. Breakfast was excellent. This included homemade marmalades, various juices, freshly prepared fresh fruit salad, choice of cereal, yoghurts and other fruit followed by either a full English or a selection of items of your choice. This was expertly cooked by Trevor. Brierholme is very conveniently situated for a visit to Keswick being only 2 mins walk from the main shopping street. Parking is available, two on the front and other spaces at the rear. We have already re-booked.

We stayed at Brierholme Guest House over the New Year and we really enjoyed our stay. Arriving wet and tired after a day on the fells, Geraldine and Trevor were very accomodating and not worried about wet boots / bags / coats in the slightest. They are obviously walkers themselves.

Brierholme is situated within about 50 yards of the Keswick High Street and all of its facilities as well as offering a dedicated parking space (unusual in Keswick, where Parking is tight at the best of times). The room was clean, inviting and we had a great view out towards Catbells.

Breakfast every morninh was lovely, with a choice of cereals ,fruit, full english or a smaller cooked breakfast such as eggs or beans on toast. A special mention must be made of the Haddock fish cakes and Bucks fizz offered on New Years Day.

We would definitely recommend Brierholme and stay there when we're back in Keswick.
