    “We found it difficult to locate.”

    The view of the property was hidden by 3 other parked cars when we arrived - belonging to the upstairs flat. This made entering and leaving the property fairly difficult, let alone having to get out onto the busy main road. Luckily, these people left on the Sunday and we were able to turn around on the premises before heading out.

    The view of the property was hidden by 3 other parked cars when we arrived - belonging to the upstairs flat. This made entering and leaving the property fairly difficult, let alone having to get out onto the busy main road. Luckily, these people left on the Sunday and we were able to turn around on the premises before heading out. We think it would be useful to give a picture of the property as seen from the road on the joining instructions plus mentioning that it is directly before a large road sign if coming from Windermere or, just behind if coming from Keswick. The latter would only show the back of the sign. Other than that, the dishwasher was broken. This was mended quite quickly but no note was left to say that it had been done so we continued to wash up by hand - until the last day! Maybe advise the tenants when a job has been completed? Other than that, we loved the flat. Home from home.

The popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the North of the Lake District and has plenty to offer the visitor at any time of year. The town boasts numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, excellent parks, the famous Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema, the Pencil Museum, a climbing wall, fishing and great mountain biking opportunities, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the stunning Borrowdale Valley is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Nearby, between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw or the famous Catbells, there really is something for everyone. Visit Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Jennings Brewery and Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Bassenthwaite Lake, or take a fabulous boat trip around Derwentwater. With plenty of attractions for the kids, lovely parks and the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park this is a great Lakeland destination whatever the time of year.
