We have 7 en-suite bedrooms which include The Burleigh Suite – a spacious former Victorian drawing room, 3 doubles, and 3 flexible doubles/twins.

Stunning views

North facing rooms have views across Keswick Town to Skiddaw, Latrigg and Blencathra. South facing rooms have views across Hope Park to Derwentwater and Catbells, The Borrowdale Valley to distant Glaramara and Newlands Valley.

Burleigh Suite

The Burleigh Suite is the former drawing room on the first floor and has unsurpassed panoramic views to the south, taking in Walla Crag, the Borrowdale valley as far as the eye can see, Cat Bells, Maiden Moor and all the way round to Grisdale Pike.


This elegantly decorated studio suite is comfortable furnished with seating around the original slate fireplace for relaxing and watching television. Easy chairs placed in the bay window makes ‘watching the world go by’ an enjoyable pastime. A king size bed and large en-suite with walk-in shower complete the room.

Room facilities

All rooms have flat screen televisions with Freeview, complimentary beverage tray, clock/radio and hairdryer. Easy chairs are provided for your comfort whilst relaxing in the room.


Our refurbishment programme included renewing all our beds and we now have quality firm but comfortable Sealy beds. Crisp white sheets and goose down duvets are a winning combination for a good nights sleep.


The en-suites, again all refurbished, are uniquely designed and have a fresh, modern, contemporary feel. A range of luxury toiletries with natural plant extracts are provided.


Breakfast is served from 8.15 until 9.15 every morning. English breakfast remains a firm favourite but lighter options are available. A continental style breakfast is available earlier on request.


We do our best to cater for every need but if you have a specific dietary requirement please mention this at the time of booking or on arrival.

Local Area

A holiday in Keswick can be as relaxing or as action packed as you want to make it. There’s always something to do whatever the weather. From Burleigh Mead B&B you are walking distance to Keswick town centre and on the doorstep of the lake and surrounding fells.

Fell Walking

If you like walking there are walks to suit every level of fitness, short or long, uphill or flat, the list is endless. Keswick and the northern lakes offer a network of paths with spectacular scenery. Fells such as Catbells and Castle Crag have been made famous by Julia Bradbury’s TV series ‘Wainwright Walks’.

Mountain Biking

If cycling is for you then pick up a leaflet ‘Biking around Keswick’ detailing 5 do-in-a-day bike rides on country lanes and off-road tracks amid stunning scenery. Whinlatter Forest is home to the Altura and Quercus mountain bike trails for those looking for adventure in England’s only true mountain forest.

Outdoor Activities

Outdoor activities of every sort are available in and around Keswick – ghyll scrambling, rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking, canoeing and sailing to name a few. For those looking for a more sedate activity play a round of golf at Keswick Golf Club or Pitch & Put in Hope Park. Fishing is available but an Environment Agency fishing rod licence is required to fish in all rivers, lakes and tarns; local byelaws must be observed and a permit is usually required.
