"Brierholme" is a gem of a place to stay in the Lake District. Geraldine and Trevor are so friendly and attentive. Set right in the heart of Keswick, with parking space for the car, the situation is ideal. A few yards round the corner is the centre of Keswick, with Derwentwater very close too. Breakfast is everything one could wish...

This is our 2nd visit and won't be the last. Gerry and Trevor make you feel at home and the b&b is great. Would definitely recommend it to all. The rooms are clean and the breakfast sets you up for the day. Looking forward to the next time.
