  • "The apartment is in a good location, and has plenty of accommodation and room."

    The facilities/services and cleanliness are as described. The boiler didn’t work on the the first 3 days, although Sykes/Lakes cottages customer services responded well, to have to regularly re-pressure the system was an irritant. However, the decoration and white goods are dated and the overall feeling is of a tired apartment requiring updating. In particular,there was a smell of “wet dog” when we entered the apartment, the freezer is noisy and disturbs you in the night in the rear bedroom. The kitchen and bathrooms are particularly tired, peeling countertops, dirty grout, rusting radiators. There are no pictures of the “main” bathroom on the website which is small and has fittings which are coming away from the wall. There are the usual irritations of rationed washing up liquid, fewer dishwasher tablets than the number of days stays etc…. I will not be making a rebooking

    Thank you for your feedback - we appreciate all feedback, both positive and negative. We can only apologise for the boiler causing problems, but delighted LCH were able to help. We take on board your comments re the bathrooms and kitchen, and although it’s a shame it wasn’t in time for your stay, we are actually having new ones fitted within the next month, along with a new boiler! We hope you may reconsider and visit us another time. Property Owner

  • "Our first impression of the exterior of the property was disappointing, no garden or flowers and on street parking."

    This caused a problem when packing to leave as we could not park outside the cottage. The interior was good, I liked the painting on the wall, was it Derwentwater? I liked the shower rooms and well equipped kitchen and gas cooker. I could not fit a days pots into the dishwasher which was half the size of a normal one.

  • "Fantastic location and property."

    I couldn't have asked for anything more. Only criticism, it would have been nice to have some coffee pods supplied!

  • "2 streets away from Keswick high street this place has everything you need for a comfortable stay."

  • "Archers was the perfect accommodation for us: a couple and a family of three with an 18 month old."

    The apartment is clean, spacious and quiet and only a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick and its amenities. All the parking is on the surrounding streets and, although it was busy, we had no trouble finding nearby spaces throughout the week. The two double bedrooms were spacious and comfortable as was the sitting room at the front of the house. The high chair and cot were provided as promised and were of good quality. The kitchen was very well equipped and the two bathrooms suited us really well. We had one issue with one of the bathroom lights and were really impressed with the help we received from Sykes Cottages. An electrician was sent the next day and we received several calls from the office to keep us updated and check that we were happy with the fix. I would have no hesitation in booking Archers for a Keswick stay in the future and highly recommend Sykes Cottages.

  • "Fantastic location, a quick stroll into the centre of town."

    Apartment is well equipped and had everything we needed to enjoy our weeks stay. A slow draining shower (main bathroom) was a slight inconvenience nothing major. This was our 2nd stay at the archers, I imagine next year will be the 3rd!

  • "WE thought the layout of the apartment worked well for two couples, each bedroom having its own shower room and being at either end of the apartment it meant each couple had a good degree of privacy."

    The towels although clean were not of particularly good quality At arrival the apartment seemed clean but we later found that radiators in one of the bedrooms and the lounge had drink splattered on them - which we wiped and removed. The skirting boards in the bedrooms needed cleaning. We lost an ear-ring in the sofa and in searching for it lifted the sofa cushions to find a coloured pencil and various other debris.

  • "We found the cottage very disappointing."

    It was dark and gloomy and did not meet our expectations.

  • "Easy to book through Sykes cottages."

    Reasonable price. Keswick is a good place to stay to see the rest of the Lake District.

  • "Cannot give full marks for accuracy of description because we were told we needed to take towels when they were provided."

    Glad that they were there because I had been feeling it was a bit mean not to have them included, for the price we were paying. Archers was fine for our needs: the ground floor en_suite bedroom proving ideal for our partially disabled guest. The house was comfortable and well equipped. We especially appreciated the fact that the central heating system had been pre programmed to come on after 6o'clock until 9.30 ish. It was lovely and warm. Thank you for all your provision.
