    "Nice enough small apartment that needs new windows especially in the bedroom - the main window didn't shut properly meaning it was noisier than it would otherwise have been. Draughty in both bedroom and lounge. Poor quality window blinds that fell apart when used. Mobile telephone reception limited to non-existent. Would be perfectly fine with a bit of investment in the windows."

    "No tin opener! Have a word!!"

    "A very snug little flat in the centre of Keswick. It is small but we found it comfortable and contained everything we needed. Parking was simple and, in truth, we scarcely used the car. Lovely to come back from a day's hiking in the fells and sit on the terrace in the sun. Enjoyed having all the shops and pubs so nearby."

    "Great location but perhaps could do with a better coffee pot."

    "Lovely cosy place to stay, clean with a beautiful bathroom. Right in the centre of Keswick so just a 5 minute walk to local pubs, shops and take aways. Also right next to Hope park and the lake. Really easy process to collect and return the keys and the parking permit was a life saver, there were always parking spaces available in the central car park when we had been out for the day. Will definitely stay again."

    "Very good enjoyed the cottage. Very nice very spacious and clean good value for money."
    Robert ‐ 29 Jul 2018
    "This is a small self contained one bedroom apartment on the top floor, adequately equipped for two people. Quite a number of access stairs outside and within, with the final stairs quite steep and not really suitable for anyone with poor mobility or a disability. The lounge is small, the kitchen more than adequate and the bedroom has a very comfortable bed and the bathroom is fresh and of a modern style.Location is very good with easy access to the main shopping area, lakeside and parks. It is fine to use for a short stay or a one week holiday."

    "Very clean and bright, well equipped but no beer glasses!!! Too hot like living in a greenhouse. We asked for a fan but none available!!! We were told to open the Windows. We had them open 24/7 but the noise from outside was horrendous. Motorbikes, lorries, vans, D ustbins being emptied every morning about 8.30. Not the peaceful holiday we hoped for."

    "Comfortable apartment, nice central location. Would stay at Blencathra again.The window blinds in the bedroom were damaged and individual slats fell off leaving gaps, so that one's privacy is compromised, and light came in early in the morning. We found we could re-attach the blind as a makeshift repair and that there were signs this has been a continuing problem as the slats had been re-arranged to clip onto the attachments on the frame of the blind. The blind should be replaced. There should also be curtains fitted.This was reported to Cumbrian Cottages office in Keswick on Thursday 28th June."

    "Excellent location near town centre, convenient parking with free permit. Comfortable and well equipped accommodation."
    Helen ‐ 8 May 2018
    "The location is brilliant, being right in the middle of Keswick but with lovely views of Catbells, Latrigg and Blencathra (of course). Apartment is fairly well equipped, though the ice box in the fridge was iced up pretty badly and didn't keep stuff quite frozen, we were only there 3 nights and didn't need to freeze any meat products so not really a problem for us. Otherwise fine, we would definitely stay again."
    Anthony ‐ 5 May 2018
    "Very nice apartment in good position, would stay again if back in keswick"
    Hilda ‐ 18 Feb 2018
    "We enjoyed staying in Blencathra , it is a comfortable flat and the location is very good. Only fault was the central heating. We could not adjust the temperature, resulting in the flat being freezing . A portable heater would have been appreciated."
