I'm hesitant to recommend Dancing Beck simply because i'm concerned that next time round it would be booked solid. On a serious note the place is a gem. Clean, tidy, breakfast superb & great hostess. Can't wait to go back.

Had been there some time before, however, I can only recommend the place. If you are looking for real good traditional English Bed and Breakfast combined with comfort this is an excellent choice. The house is situated in a quiet environment and has a beautiful garden. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable, decorated with traditional furniture. The refectory is...

My partner & I have just returned from the bank holiday weekend and our stay was lovely. The house is homely and comfortable. Lyn is the perfect host and a very good cook. The room was clean, quiet, the bed was comfortable and the view was stunning. We both felt relaxed and rejuvenated by the end of the weekend. Thank...

My wife and I stayed at the Dancing Beck for 3 nights and would highly recommend it. The B&B is located less than a 10 minute drive from Keswick which was perfect for visiting Keswick and the surrounding areas. The room was immaculate with an incredible view and Lyn's breakfasts were excellent. Lyn was a superb host, friendly and helpful....

Me, my Wife and our Shar Pei (Snuggles) have stayed at the Dancing Beck on numerous occasions over the past few years, we have visited many different hotels/B&B around the world.

This B&B, located just outside of Keswick, was a real find. We stayed on Room 1, which gave us views of the fells overlooking the Derwentwater e.g Cat Bells, The Burrow etc. For anyone interested in hiking, there is a footpath that will take you up to the top of Skiddow (931 metres), within a 10 minute walk. The B&B...

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Dancing Beck. We were in room 1 with amazing views. The bed was probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in at a B&B or hotel, and thus I slept soundly! We loved the location. It's a very quick drive into Keswick and the lake, and there are plenty of walks...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Lyn. Nothing was too much trouble, our dog was welcomed too. Lovely room, great breakfasts, excellent service and good value for money. We will be back soon. (Hopefully the weather will be just as good)

“Room 3 is the one to go for if you have an interest in wildlife as it offers great views of the lovely back garden and the feeding station. During our stay we spotted Red Squirrels, bats, mice, a Greater Spotted Woodpecker and a Nuthatch, aside from the more common species of birds.”
