This lovely one bedroom apartment is located in the centre of the village of Keswick in the Lake District and can sleep two people.

Chaucer Lodge also has a designated parking space, so you can leave the car if you wish due to the easy access into Keswick with a flat walk to the shops, pubs and restaurants.??


Ideal location for Keswick town centre with dedicated off road p
Large enough for two people, ample heating & hot water. On the down side only 2 pans for cooking both of which were left dirty by the previous occupiers. The non stick frying pan was unusable due to the non stick coating flaking off. However there is plenty of crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils etc for normal day to day use. Did not like the fact that the fitted fire detectors were covered in plastic bags. A notice said they could be activated by steam from the shower or if the rooms were too hot. This could pose a safety issue which I believe requires solving. Additional smoke alarms have been fitted. Would consider using again if the above were rectified.

We liked the property very much, it was convenient for the town and all transport etc. There were a few things that could be improved. On one day we decided to use the toaster, and when we moved it, there must have been almost a whole loafs' worth of crumbs underneath, and the crumb trays were also full, not very nice! Also, not being able to get in to the property until 3pm is very late in our opinion, we have stayed elsewhere and been able to obtain access by 1pm. Finally, the bathroom floor did not appear very clean and the extraction is not very good

A well equipped apartment with private parking in a central loca
The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for two people. The location was central and it is a bonus to be able to park the car adjacent to the apartment. The service from Lakeland Cottage Holidays was efficient and the staff friendly.

Ideal accommodation,parking and location for two people
This accommodation is ideally suited for two people,situated in a very quiet location with allocated car parking outside the apartment and about a 5 minute walk into the town.It is very clean with everything needed to make self-catering easy.If I had to change anything I would replace the two settees with easy chairs with higher backs.
