As well as the attractions of Keswick town, The Old Mill, Keswick is within easy reach of Derwentwater for sailing and water sports, or Bowness, and Ambleside for a perfect romantic break or a friends holiday.


Delightful apartment, pity about the parking
Lovely apartment, well located, clean and spacious. Parking is in near by car park which is only reason why I didnt rate 5 star. That said, it is not the end of the world. Number of steps up to apartment and parking would mean this may not be suitable for some. Apartment is near the centre of town but just a little away so that you dont get any noise. Wifi would be a useful addition.

Fab flat in centre of Keswick
Spacious flat with good facilities and generous supply of dishwasher tablets etc. Good to have parking permit for the week. Loved Keswick...plenty to do! only drawback; no wifi.

Ticked all the boxes
This is the second time me and my wife have stayed at the Old Mill and both occasions have been faultless. The accomodation was perfect for our needs. The location a hop skip and a jump from the Keswick means that all the amenities are right on your doorstep. We had a great time.

Delightful apartment
Great location and well equipped - except no hairdryer and could not get fire to work though storage radiators meant nice and warm! Plenty of storage. Might be difficult for some with stairs from front door and very low beds.

Home from home
Second time we have visited The Old Mill. Lovely flat,very clean and well furnished,quiet road with all amenities round the corner. Never heard any neighbours, just down the road from the cinema and local small supermarket. Highly recommended, but the access stairs (18 I think) might put some people off (not us though). I would not recommend for young families for this reason. So sorry it is already booked for the week we need next year, hopefully the following year we will be back.
