  • "The house is beautiful and very well situated, close to the amenities in Keswick but detached enough for it not to s=feel like a town house."

    It is very well appointed and the interior decor is stunning. The kitchens are large and well appointed though we did find the ovens slightly difficult to get started with. Some basic instructions for these may help. For a large party this is a superb house and fully deserves the awards it has received and we had a really good weekend there. Could it be improved? A slightly better music system would help (I think we found an Alexa but better speakers in each of the communal rooms would be a nice feature. Instead we did use the piano and that was an unexpected bonus. Overall a really lovely property. For the price, a slightly earlier check in would have been nice (5 pm is a bit late. We are Lakelovers owners too and our check in is earlier).
