Our first visit to Keswick and we found this little gem on the internet. What a brilliant place to stay....spotlessly clean, wonderful breakfasts, attention to detail (even a wine cooler was provided without asking) and within an easy stroll of the town centre. Sharon and Peter were first class hosts and will surprise you by going that little bit extra when you're least expecting it! Beware.....if you're in room 4, the teddy bear has a habit of getting up to high jinks, never being in the same place every day!

Once again we have to compliment Sharon for her 1st class service on our second stay at this really great b and b in the heart of Keswick. Again the room was very very comfortable and very clean. The breakfast again was superb with plenty of choice and the atmosphere was excellent. We enjoyed it so much we have booked again for early part of next year and we are looking forward to it, many thanks to our excellent hostess, see you in march, regards , mark and lynn....

Room Tip: room 4 is very spacious and comfortable bed with all facilities...

This is a large victorian house converted into a small B&B. Rooms spotlessly clean and lots of attention to detail. Everything was exactly as it should be, nice breakfast with lots of choice. A vegetarian breakfast was served as if it were the norm, rather than some places we have visited in the past. The B&B itself is about 15mins walk from the town centre. £64 per room per night was not cheap, but not too expensive either. Overall a very good place to stay, the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the room was a bit small.

Room Tip: Room 1 was a bit small.

I'd just like to say a massive thank you to Sharon and Peter for an unforgettable stay in The Lakes.... Being a single traveller I was made to feel extremely welcome, so much so that when talking to other people I kept referring to it as 'home'. They couldn't do enough to answer any questions I had and provided me with enough walking info to easily see me through my stay. The rooms were spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. It's a stroll back from the town to the B&B but to be honest after a good meal and a couple of drinks it was also a welcome one. My recommendation would be not to hesitate to book up for a visit, but just make sure it's not when I need a room please ;0). Thanks again and see you again soon. Alan

I'm repeating all the good things what everybody who has stayed here before has said. Parking was just over the road safe and in view of Burnside.We were greeted by our lovely hosts. Rooms immaculate, Nice big TV, Pristeen shower room with all you need. Breakfast lovely with plenty of choice.(You choose what you want). Fruit, Cereal, try the porridge its lovely, and a delightful Full English is on offer. Just ask and Sharon will make what you want. Trust the host on walks and places for dinner, they know where is good. Just book this B&B up its lovely. Very good value too. Look after Teddy in your room.

Room Tip: They are all good we had a viewing. The better rooms are front rooms which are on the main road but...

This was our sixth stay at Burnside and we are already booked in for a seventh. On this trip my partner and I really wanted to recharge the batteries after a couple of hectic months. Burnside makes this possible and more. A spotless establishment, warm, welcoming and very comfy rooms. Its getting a little cold this time of year but Burnside was cosy with hot showers.

In my early 20's I stayed in various Lakeland B&B's but since discovering Burnside in 2010 I would not consider anywhere else. I refuse to believe there is a better B&B around - for the money. Feel very lucky to have found this place, the owners Sharon and Pete do a wonderful job.
