Gill (proprietor) is a bit corky but she puts on a friendly face. The location is great and the breakfast is excellent. The wi-fi is very temperamental and works half the time. Gill turns off the heat from 2100-0600 so it will get cold at night. I would stay here again.

What a gorgeous BnB. Perfect location in a neighborhood yet steps to the heart of the city. The room was perfect in every way; modern,efficient and comfortable.You can walk everywhere from here, including the playhouse and the pitch and putt and park across the Street! Thank you Gill!

Lovely building in a brilliant location, very clean and tidy too. The lady owner has no idea how to deal with people and one minute can seem nice the next very offish and rude, my partner decided she has mental issues and wanted us to leave early as we felt very uncomfortable around her, we met another family staying there...

We stayed at Burleigh Mead last summer and this summer (2 and 3 nights, respectively). Gill, the owner operator, was especially welcoming this year and made sure all was right for our stay. While it was a wet visit this year, her place served as an excellent jumping off point for all that the northern Lake District has to offer.... More

If you are from North America and aren't familiar with Bed and Breakfast accommodation then you are in for a treat. Burleigh Mead is exceptionally clean, wonderfully situated and the food is amazing.

Burleigh Mead is in The Heads neighborhood of Keswick. It is steps from everything. Short walk to town, and to bus station (it's really a bus stop) and a very good market. Rooms at Burleigh Mead were fantastic with views of the lake (Derwentwater) and the little golf course. It's a 5 minute walk to the lake where you can... More
