Our room had a great view and the en suite was clean and well decorated, all over very cosy. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and Gerry and Trevor were more than hospitable. The location was excellent, 2 min away from shops and pubs. Will definitely go back again.

A warm welcome on our arrival from Gerry and Trevor. Our room was immaculate and quite spacious. A good choice at breakfast the full English was cooked perfectly. Brierholme is two minutes walk to the town centre so an ideal spot. Will definitely be staying there again.

The views from the room were superb and it was very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and as varied as you wanted them to be. Gerry and Trevor were... More

There are many good places to stay in Keswick, but Brierholme is really head and shoulders above the rest. Great room, location, breakfast and hosts. They even lent us a pair of poles as our legs began to tire.
