We stayed at Burleigh Mead last summer and this summer (2 and 3 nights, respectively). Gill, the owner operator, was especially welcoming this year and made sure all was right for our stay. While it was a wet visit this year, her place served as an excellent jumping off point for all that the northern Lake District has to offer.... More

We really enjoyed our three night stay in this very well run B and B . The location is excellent with a short walk to the pretty village and the lake as well as the fun activities right across the street. The views are stunning too ! We were visiting this area from Australia and met up with friends who... More

If you are heading to Cumbria and the Lake District - you can't go wrong staying here. If you are from North America and aren't familiar with Bed and Breakfast accommodation then you are in for a treat. Burleigh Mead is exceptionally clean, wonderfully situated and the food is amazing. The dining room buzzes with warm conversation and you can... More

Burleigh Mead is in The Heads neighborhood of Keswick. It is steps from everything. Short walk to town, and to bus station (it's really a bus stop) and a very good market. Rooms at Burleigh Mead were fantastic with views of the lake (Derwentwater) and the little golf course. It's a 5 minute walk to the lake where you can... More

This was our second time in Keswick and I knew that I wanted to stay on the "Heads" where several upscale Victorian era B&Bs are located. Burley Mead couldn't have been a better choice. We stayed at the top of the house with a view of the lake. Our window also overlooked Hope Park and the small golf course (which... More

This lovely building is in a great location and as long as everything is chugging along ok - it's great. It's clean and warm and everything works. We wouldn't go back though. As has been commented on many times the lady (owner?) can at times be pleasant and helpful and at times huffy and abrupt. We actually felt uncomfortable interacting... More

Traditional quaint Bed & Breakfast. Breakfasts were great, but only served from 8:15 to 9:15 - fine for us but maybe not for people who like to get up late. Our e-suite room was very comfortable. Owner friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to go, and even assisted me in when I made a cockup of ironing my wife's... More
