An excellent bed and breakfast with extremely geniune friendly owners Trevor and Gerry. It's ideally located to Keswick Centre and definitely worth a visit with very good facilities. We would definitely stay again.

It sometimes happens that you find a gem of a place and decide to write it into the rest of your life as the venue you will always return to - like salmon swimming upstream annually to the very same spawning ground. That’s how I feel about Brierholme. My friend and I shared the twin room and loved every minute... More

We were in England and Scotland for 17 days and I had picked Brierholme as our base in the Lake District based on location and reviews on TA. It is actually our cheapest B&B for the whole trip. Brierholme is conveniently located a few mins walk from the town of Keswick. They also provide free private parking which was important... More

Our first visit to Brierholme and Gerry and Trevor looked after us superbly. The accommodation was excellent, the room cosy and warm and breakfast delicious. Lots of helpful extras like a communal fridge to freeze your icepacks and keep your leftovers cold. Tea-time treats and they even put our favourite Rooibos teabags in our room. Gerry's home-made lime marmalade was... More

A lovely place to stay if you want to visit Keswick. Ideally located within easy access of the town centre, a 5 minute walk to the Derwent lake. The guest house is clean and tidy and Gerry and Trevor are very helpful and extremely nice people. The breakfast was fab and we would be more that happy to visit again.... More

Gerry and Trevor were wonderful hosts with their friendly, relaxed approach and standards throughout the guesthouse were impeccable.

Lovely guest house in the heart of Keswick. Great views from the rear bedrooms, and superb breakfast with a nice choice of cereals, cooked breakfasts, porridge and fruits. We would definitely stay here again. Parking available too which is a bonus. The hosts are extremely pleasant and helpful. Flask filling was also available and useful. Hoping to come again later...
