Comfortable and close to Keswick town centre
Two double bedroom appartment, large lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Parking for residents in side street. The appartment is well appointed, comfortable and there is a large TV and WIFI. Clean. We have booked again for next year.

Disappointing I'm afraid
I hate giving poor reports but hope that this will be helpful to the owners in bringing a potentially lovely cottage up to standard. First of all some positives: Nice big cottage Quite quiet Close to centre of Keswick Parking Washing machine, fridge/freezer, modern TV and DVD player The negatives: Property needs refurbishing throughout. Smell of damp although we couldn't identify where it came from. All furnishings very tired and need repacing - lounge, dining room, bedrooms. In bedroom on 1st floor a leg on a bedside set of drawers came detatched when a drawer was opened. Only cleaned superficially and, given the Covid-19 risk, should have been deep cleaned. Filthy under setee cushions + an old sock, and under and behind furniture. Around shower enclosure and corners of bathroom floor. On our last night a panel of the ceiling and a quantity of rubble (in bedroom on 2nd floor) colapsed, just missing our sleeping grandson. Stairs to secong floor were very steep (as advised in the details). Towels too small and very thin. We were there for a week and we really needed another set.

Nice house, good location
Clean, warm, comfortable, quite stylish house with plenty of room. Some pretty mountain views form the windows too. Easy/quick walk to town centre. Quiet too. I missed being able to make proper coffee in the mornings - perhaps a cafetiere would be a good addition for the future, otherwise all good for us. thank you

Ideal for 4 people without dogs
I booked this cottage for a weekend as it advertised garden and dog friendly. It is a nice cottage, but the top room in attic has exceedingly steep stairs, so not ideal for anyone who may struggle a bit. The garden at the front is miniscule. The enclosed space at the back has a car space, however the neighbours are not very friendly and I was forcefully told not to let my dogs - who were on a lead - to urinate anywhere as her grandchildren played out there. It rather spoilt my weekend having to deal with unfriendly locals in such close proximity. The cottage is well equipped and in a good place for getting in and out of town. I would love to visit Keswick again, but not so sure I would stay at this cottage due to neighbours and the attic room.

Brilliant stay
Have arrived back home today after spending a week in this house for our holidays in Keswick. Can?t fault it, lovely cottage with everything we could need and right next to the town centre, perfect location. Clean and tidy and larger than expected inside. Only fault we had with the cottage is that the parking isn?t very good as there is only room for one car. (We had 2) Would stop here again, and definitely recommend for anyone who is looking to stay here. Thank you for a lovely week in your home :)
