    Thanks for the feedback and hope you enjoyed your stay in Keswick. Property Owner

  • "Another comfortable and quiet week at Derwent Haven."

    The car parking space is a bit tight being next to a garage but free parking in the centre of Keswick a short stroll from shops,bus station, lake and parks is holiday gold.

    Glad you enjoyed your time in Keswick. We always advise to reverse into the car park space so you can park tight against the garage. We have a pretty large car and find this works well. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay and would recommend the property to family and friends, it was like home from home with everything you could want for your stay."

    It is in a really good position in the town and next to a small supermarket. I have a large car but found the parking space to be small.

    Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed you stay in Keswick. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property in the centre of town."

    The apartment provided all the facilities we needed to a high standard. Having off road parking provided was extremely helpful.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to make the apartment a home from home so you can arrive, relax and enjoy Keswick. Property Owner

  • "Only comment would be the car parking slot is unbelievably tight to get into - especially when the people in the next slot hadn't made any consideration!"

    Perfect location for the Ironman which was the reason we were in Keswick

    Thanks for your feedback and glad it was a perfect location for you. The advantage of the property is it has a private parking space in the centre of Keswick. However, it does rely on everyone parking considerately. I recommend reversing into the space after unpacking so you can park up against the garage which gives more room to get in and out of the car. I’ll make sure this is on the arrival details. Property Owner

  • "We found the property to be in a excellent position."

    We were concerned it might be noisy and took ear plugs but it was really quiet even during the day hardly noticed the traffic with the secondary double glazing. The flat was lovely and well appointed and comfortable, we didn't cook anything but it looked like everything would be there if we wished to. We would definitely would stay there again if we return to Keswick. We were very impressed with the after care by Sykes after we locked the keys inside the flat, from the helpline to the man who came in about 90 minutes to let us in. Sykes called the next day to check everything was alright. We couldn't recommend our stay highly enough thanks to all concerned

    Thanks for your positive comments we are delighted that you had a lovely stay. Property Owner

  • "The property couldn't be located in a better position just off the high street, a quiet location in the centre of Keswick."

    It took us a while to locate the parking space. A clearer indication on arrival would be beneficial. A perfect holiday location which we highly recommend and we will certainly return in the future.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the positive feedback. I will check with Lakes Cottage Holidays over the arrival instructions to make sure the reserved space is easier to find. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Derwent Haven and it had everything we needed for our stay."

    Particularly appreciated the tuppawware boxes for our picnics and we then fell into comfy beds each night! The only thing that we would have appreciated was a fan... The weather was lovely and warm while there and it made it very hot at night!

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We take all comments on board. We hope to welcome you back. The Lakes Cottage Holidays Owner Relations Team So glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to make the flat a home from home and we also love staying as a family. We will look at the fan suggestion.

    Great location, both for Keswick & the Lakes. Be aware, the parking place is very tight!

    Thanks for you comment and glad you enjoyed your stay. We find it is best to unpack at the bottom of the steps and then reverse into the parking space so you can park close to the garage for more space. Property Owner

  • "Window in main bedroom wouldn't stay open."

    Had to use the bread board to keep it open! Didn't use much hot water (due to using dishwasher and electric shower) but on the one occasion we had a bath, the pump for the hot water appeared to be struggling after a while (cavitating?) and the hot water either came out of the tap in pulses or not at all. Beds very comfortable and great to have cling film and tin foil, dishwasher tablets etc provided. Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback. We’ll monitor the hot water but it worked fine when we stayed ourselves a few weeks ago. The window will need replacing eventually but will need doing as part of the whole block. Glad you found the extras like cling film, dishwasher tablets useful. We try to make the apartment as homely as possible. Property Owner

  • "Excellent, great apartment, in a very convenient location."

    Close to the shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes, easy to walk to the lake and fells, near the bus station for getting further afield. The apartment was peaceful, comfortable and spacious. Clean and well maintained. It has a good shower and bath, and tv and wifi, for unwinding after a day’s walking. Derwent Haven is a great place to stay, I’ll definitely be back.
