In fact, that's the reason this lovely guest house is such a success, it's the way you are looked after. Unfortunately, we never met the previous owners who built up the reputation of the guest house but what I know is that Jonathan and...

Hi Steve, Glad you had a enjoyable stay with us. It was lovely to meet you both. You certainly needed the hot chocolate as it was a cold weekend (especially up on the fells).

In early January my fella and I were on a short hiking break to the lakes, and as we don't drive, Brierholme was in a perfect central location in Keswick where we could walk straight out to Derwentwater. We were immediately made to feel really welcome by Johnathan who showed us to our spotless room, which had a lovely bay...

Booked the Brierholme based on a tempting post Christmas offer and on superb previous reviews unaware that the place had changed hands recently. No need to worry. Adam and John have continued the excellent service and attention to detail that would make the previous owners proud. From the time we arrived to the time we left nothing was too much...
