We were in a bedroom at the top of the house with a wonderful view of Catbells and the high hills beyond, though the splendidly named "Robinson" was probably just hidden by nearer hills.

We have just had two really enjoyable nights at Brierholme and would recommend it wholeheartedly! It is situated in an excellent location, just a very short stroll to the Town Centre and parking is easy. Jonathan and Adam are extremely welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them! The rooms are comfortable with good views and the...

My mother and I stayed in the twin room number 7. It was very comfortable with a great view of the fells behind. The room and en suite were spotless and well decorated. The breakfasts were beautifully cooked and there was an excellent choice of cereals, juices, youghurts etc in addition to the full English. The B&B is very well...

I recently stayed here with friends for a long weekend in Keswick. Jonathan and Adam are lovely and very welcoming hosts. They can't do enough for you and the little added touches, such as cake on offer in the afternoon, are lovely. The rooms we had were well equipped and really clean and we really couldn't have asked for more....

My wife and I spent a very relaxing few days at Brierholme with a couple of friends last week. Our room at the back was comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is excellent, as are the tray bakes that Jonathan leaves out for guests to nibble on in the evening. The shower is quite small but who cares; the enthusiasm...

It was our first stay at Brierholme and I can honestly say it has been SUPERB. Jonathan and Adam are the ultimate hosts, nothing is too much trouble.
