Just a short walk from Keswick town centre sits Burleigh Mead, a 4 star Silver Visit Britain B&B. With spacious interiors and panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, the Victorian guesthouse is a perfect getaway in the heart of the Lake District.
Seven en-suite bedrooms - three doubles, three flexible doubles/twins and The Burleigh Suite, a former drawing room with stunning views of Walla Crag, the Borrowdale valley, Cat Bells and Grisdale Pike. The suite has a king size bed, en-suite bathroom and is elegantly decorated with an original slate fireplace and a beautiful bay window. All rooms have goose down duvets, a flat screen TV, complimentary beverage tray and a range of luxury toiletries. North facing rooms look out over Skiddaw, Latrigg and Blencathra.
On the doorstep and nearby
Keswick is home to a fantastic variety of shops, galleries and restaurants as well as a network of walks and activities to suit all abilities. Look out for opportunities to rock climb, kayak and sail, or play a round of golf at Keswick Golf Club. If cycling if more your thing, Whinlatter Forest is home to the Altura and Quercus mountain bike trails. Fishing is also available but you must have an Environment Agency fishing rod licence and a permit is usually required. If you have time to explore further afield, the border into Scotland is within driving distance.
