A lovely place to stay if you want to visit Keswick. Ideally located within easy access of the town centre, a 5 minute walk to the Derwent lake. The guest house is clean and tidy and Gerry and Trevor are very helpful and extremely nice people. The breakfast was fab and we would be more that happy to visit again....

We stayed at Brierholme at the end of June and will definitely be back again. Gerry and Trevor could not have been more helpful and were the perfect hosts. Great central location with parking. Breakfast was superb and room 6 where we stayed was absolutely spotless with a modern en-suite. Can't recommend this highly enough! Thanks for a lovely weekend.
