  • "A lovely property for a small family, situated in a very accessible area on the doorstep of Keswick"

    Reviewed by Alan5.0Oct 2023

  • "Brimbles is a lovely bungalow which made our holiday most enjoyable."

    The listing did not indicate that it was situated on the outskirts of the town.. The walk to and from town was quite a distance.. If we had known we may not have chosen this bungalow..

  • "Decent 3 star facilities in a quiet cul-de-sac ten minutes walk from the town centre."

    I have stayed in this cottage before, and would stay again, but in 2023 is wi-fi really too much to ask?

  • "Pleasant homely bungalow."

    Very pleased with location as we could walk into town and it was nice and quiet where we were. Conservatory was good for watching the rabbits on the lawn - just a slight concern about the steps down from the kitchen, although hand rails are provided. Plenty of info provided on how to use the facilities and lots of nice touches, thank you.

  • "We were aware that there was no WiFi when we booked."

    I notice that there is a scheme for fibre WiFi installations in the area, so it would be great to install it to Brimbles. That being said it didn't spoil our stay

  • "A comfortable bungalow in a quiet part of town, with a pleasant 15 minute walk to the centre and easy access to good walks and mountain ascents."

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad that you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed all the local area has to offer. Heart of the Lakes Owner Relations Property Owner

  • "This is the second stay we have had at Brimbles."

    On the whole we like it, however this latest 2 week stay was slightly marred by a fault in the electrical system when a trip switch tripped out twice in one day with no apparent reason. The situation of maintenance was slightly confusing with the first port of call being the owner rather than Sykes Cottages so the numbers called on the day were a little confusing.

  • "Brimbles has everything you need for a stay in Keswick."

    It was clean and comfortable. The conservatory is lovely to eat in and watch the wildlife that visits. We had good weather during our stay so the garden furniture was a bonus to sit out in in the evening. Parking space is welcome and it is only a short walk into the town center. We did have an issue with the TV but lakelovers is dealing with this and it didn't spoil our stay.

  • "The holiday cottage is well equipped, I would say that the paint colours on the walls are very relaxing."

    The twin cot easily fits a travel cot in. Though we didn't know a highchair and cot were provided so we brought our own. Although a new washing up bowl and thing to drain cutlery would have improved the washing up exsperence. The views are lovely and we enjoy the lush foliage in the garden. I enjoyed the short walk into town though the park to nearby the pencil factory. The park has lots of goid quality children's play equipment. The fridge also has a draw sized freezer compartment, which is useful. We enjoyed sitting in the conservatory.

  • "Property was clean and fairly well equipped."

    We knew that there was no Wi Fi connectivity however this was not an issue. We would stay here again.

  • "As on previous stays we found the cottage to be comfortable, and convenient, and extremely clean."

    The accommodation provided everything which we needed but lacked wi-fi. We will without doubt book this accommodation in the future.

  • "The holiday cottage is conveniently located, very clean and the living room is very comfortable, but everything else about the property is cheap, cheap, cheap."

    No wifi, which I only realised after booking, and wouldn't be an issue but we have no mobile service either. Other issues - Decor in the property is extremely dated, its like being back in the 80s. Not enough hooks or rails for damp towels. TV remote doesn't work. No remote for the DVD player at all Hardly any loo roll left when we arrived so we had to do without until we could work out where the nearest shop was (not easy with no internet). Not enough power sockets in the bedrooms. No dishwasher or freezer Kitchen poorly equipped Table in the conservatory very small for 4 people and felt very flimsy No courtesy books, games or puzzles Very disappointing seeing as we paid nearly £1000 for this property for a week. Would not come back here.

    Comfortable,clean,warm and lots of space. I onlt realised after I booked that there is NO WIFI at the property. Wifi would have been great as poor data roaming and poor mobile coverage in Cumbria.
