Breakfast is a treat at Brierholme

'When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,' said Piglet at last, 'what's the first thing you say to yourself?'
'What's for breakfast?' said Pooh.
'What do you say, Piglet?'
'I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?' said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. 'It's the same thing,' he said.

"How do you like your eggs in the morning? I like mine with a kiss. Boiled or fried I'm satisfied as long as I get my kiss."

"Brierholme is the best guest house you will find in Keswick. Adam and Jonathan really are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble, the house is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and excellent quality, with plenty of options to suit even the most picky of eaters. Parking is included which is a real bonus given how busy the town can get. I can't wait to return for another visit. Keep up the excellent work boys!"
