  • "A lovely cosy cottage in the heart of Keswick."

    The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay . You only need to walk out of the door to visit shops, bars, the lake and parks plus the surrounding fells. We have stayed at Agathi numerous times and would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Keswick .

  • "We love Agathi and stayed in February 23 but we feel that the beds need replacing."

    The mattresses feel lumpy soft and old . Both times we tried both bedrooms and were very uncomfortable and ached. Obviously this is not great . Also kitchen needs a meat roasting tin a couple of lidded casseroles.Pads on dining chairs would stop the screeching on slate floor. Easily sorted then definitely a 5 star rating and a return from us .

  • "It has a terrific location."

    But it needs a bit of attention. For instance I also rented another cottage…why is there a huge difference in towel quality and amenities from one Lakelover cottage to another ? This one also lacks directions for the lovely gas fireplace in the Lounge ? Is it shut off until later in the fall ? The sofa needs to be covered or cleaned…we put a blanket on it :-( The beds are comfortable enough…the pillows are terrible :-(. I’m not being overly critical as much as I am wanting the owners to know how renters actually feel. To get return guests it needs to be made more inviting.

  • "A really comfortable and well equipped cottage in a superb location, only a couple of minutes walk from all the bars, restaurants and shops in the Main Street."

    Very handy for the lake and wonderful gardens and close to a good supermarket and bus station. I would recommend the Indian restaurant at the bottom of the main street and Brysons tea room is also worth a visit. No hesitation in recommending Agathl, and would certainly visit again. The only problem I had was trying to unlock the key box to deposit the keys on departure

    I struggled with the downstairs shower as I didn’t like the large overhead one, my husband loved it! You just can’t please some people but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the position to the town was brilliant.

    It is very comfortable, well equipped and very clean.It is ideal for 2 couples. It is Dog friendly but I think you should let people know it isn’t secure at the back patio area.

  • "Brilliant place to stay in the beautiful town of Keswick."

    Ideally located just off the Main Street and close to the wonderful pubs and places to eat that Keswick offers and the walks that are available straight from the front door are spectacular. Very comfortable accommodation with a well equipped kitchen and living area and a supermarket (Booths) just a 2 minute walk away. We had a wonderful week there and really can’t fault it.

    Another comfortable chair in lounge would be good. In order to use dishwasher efficiently would need more crockery and at least a couple of larger mugs would be good. Otherwise we’ll equipped. Loved the little garden but the loose tarmac / general algae growth to a lot of tread in when using it, especially with a dog.

  • "We found the property very tired with basic facilities."

    The info in the cottage said not to adjust the setting on the fridge, but we needed to as after a couple of days some food had gone off and had to be thrown out. The fridge has no trays in the door limiting the space with nowhere to stand milk etc. The kettle leaked. There was a 2 slice toaster, but there was 4 of us so this was timely when making breakfast. Non-stick frying pans and trays need replacing. It needs a tumble dryer. The mirror in the main bedroom was in the cupboard not on the wall! Crockery limited. Knives and forks were uneven sizes. Smart TV needed in the lounge. We felt that we 'made do' with a lot of stuff. The bed in the upstairs bedroom moves around, the light in the en-suite kept buffering and going on and off, the extension for the TV was propped up on a chair. The cushions on the chairs in the kitchen were dirty and torn, and the cushions in the main lounge were old and worn. The location is good, walking distance to the square, but it was noisy at times being next to the main carpark, and we had to keep the blinds closed to stop passers by looking in, which made the property dark inside. The accuracy of the listing didn't meet our expectations and we feel the it is very overpriced for the poor standard of this property.

  • "Lovely cottage in a perfect location to enjoy the delights of Keswick and an ideal base from which to walk into the spectacular surrounding countryside."

    Most importantly there are some really good pubs serving great ales and excellent food (highly recommend the cow pie at the George) only a stones throw away so after a long day walking in the hills it's perfect way to relax and recuperate with only a short walk home. We absolutely loved it and can't fault Agathi or Keswick.

    Decorated really nice and maintained to an excellent standard.The top room above the lounge was a bonus. The location was fantastic -it literally is a few steps up an alley and you are in market square. As the weather was really wet this meant we could just pop back to dry off. Definitely recommend. Nice little extras also provided that you wouldn't normally get when self catering- soap,DW tablets, kitchen cloths and T towels, bin liners etc.Thanks for a super stay :)

    We walked in on arrival and loved the cleanliness and was impressed with high quality of the decoration and its size. The owner Richard called to make sure we had arrived and to see if we had any questions or concerns - we had none. The location is excellent for both the town centre and to access the start of local walks. Out of town walks were easy to drive to so we were able to plan our days around a get up when we wake up, breakfast around the kitchen table, walk then home for a lovely meal and evening in the very comfy lounge with a fire (gas so no mess). The supermarket is a convenient 5 minute walk away so we did not need to plan food and drink too much in advance. We shall definitely book again.

  • "The main problem was the photo of the small patio which was deceptive."

    It showed boundaries on three sides but was taken in such a way as to avoid indicating that it was not enclosed on the fourth side and was actually open with no privacy. As the property allows one pet this information is even more important. This would have been a game changer for us and we would not have rented this particular property had we known. We think that you have missed a trick by not having a picture of the attic seating/ reading area which was an unexpected bonus. Comfort is downgraded slightly because the pillows were very soft with one firm pillow alternative for four people and the duvets were adequate but getting lumpy with use.

    Keswick was lovely and welcoming in this very difficult year, and was a joy of a place to stay in. The lakes/mountains themselves need no introduction as it is they that are truly the stars of the show, allowing us to have a wonderful time both walking and mountain biking in varying weather conditions. There is no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothing choice! We'd be back in a heartbeat.
