“Perfect Location , Perfect hosts and B&B”

My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous weekend away in Keswick . The Brierholme is a great B&B which has a great location . It has a very warm feel to the place and the rooms look like they were refurbed the day before we arrived , great attention to detail . We had a room that overlooked Skiddaw , so the views really are great . The owners are a lovely couple who couldn't do enough and their Knowledge of the area is second to none . Highly recommended to anybody wishing to be close to Keswick centre and close to all the Fells . What you get , in the accommodation , for the price is outstanding !

This was our first time staying at Brierholme but it won't be the last. Trevor and Gerry are wonderful hosts; the day starts bright with Gerry's infectious smile.
The house and the rooms are immaculate; they look as if they were decorated yesterday. Breakfasts were beautifully cooked by Trevor and there was a good selection of uncooked supplements, especially home made marmalade..
Although the house in central to all Keswick's amenities, there is useful private car-parking space.

This is the second year we have stayed at the Brierholme for our wedding anniversary, Trevor and Geraldine make you feel really welcome and are well informed on what's going on locally, walks etc., the rooms are well equipped and spotless, central location and breakfast is brilliant. We enjoyed our stay that much that we have booked to stay here again next year.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8 on both our stays which it at the very top of the house, good views of the fells

Great location to everything with town just a minutes walk away. Good breakfast, nice rooms and owners very helpful. Plenty of parking. Thoroughly recommended and would stay again. Went along for a walking weekend and Keswick beer festival.

Had a fantastic short stay at "Brierholme".Nothing was to much trouble for our hosts Gerry and Trevor, who were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Room was very comfortable and spottlesley clean, and we also had a fantastic view or the many hills which surround Keswick. Breakfast was awesome, plenty of choice and the full English, set you up for the day (thanks for the late tomatoes, Trev? hee hee). Will definitely be returning in the near future, would highly recommend. A big "THANK YOU" to Gerry and Trevor.

Everything about Brirholme was perfect. Very good location right in the centre of Keswick, rooms were kept very clean and tidy and our room had great views, wonderful hospitality from Gerry and Trevor who always made you feel welcome. Would recommend to anyone who wants to spend time in the lake distict.

We stayed at Brierholme before we ran the 22km Great Trail Challenge. I was pleasantly surprised by the B&B, our room was lovely with stunning views out over Keswick. We stayed at the front of the property and I could see the mountains from the bed. It was so peaceful and quiet at night.This B&B couldn't be better located, walking distance to starting line of the race, and to the centre of Keswick.

I have often found it uncomfortable staying in guest houses, either you feel you are encroaching on someone's home, or the hosts are either really OTT or a bit backward and strict, and you don't feel you have any privacy... Geraldine and Trevor were perfect - genuine, down to earth hosts with a sense of humour, they helped us plan a walking route, let us borrow ordnance survey maps, and catered for my vegetarian diet with a great breakie.

Would definitely come back and recommend to others!
