  • "Fantastic week spent in this beautiful home from home."

    Had everything we needed to make our stay fabulous. Property was immaculately clean when we arrived.

  • "Fell cottage is spacious and all rooms are a decent size, the property was generally clean and tidy, the walls and doors had some dirty marks from hands etc and was dusty on some surfaces and the shower head is dirty and needs a thorough clean, we also noticed the washing machine was very dirty and required and good clean and rinse before it could be used."

    There was a odour in the down stairs toilet which meant we had to leave the small window open but this was more likely due to local drains. The kitchen is large and roomy with a dishwasher. The kitchen Needs to be better equipped with knifes, chopping boards and glasses etc, The patio door to back garden is very stiff and the garden is only fenced on the sides and is not secure for dogs as the back is open and the drive to the front road is open. Mostly small points and attention to detail needed by cleaners there was nothing major and we would book here again as the location is ideal close to the town and local walks

  • "The quality of cleaning was very poor we have stayed at this property many times the sliding door in kitchen did not open properly very stiff the large sofa in the lounge behind the door smelt of dog wee ."

    The cost of the cottage is to high for the quality been provided the owner should go and take a look around the property from time to time needs a freshening up . Shame because the location is perfect for Keswick with of road parking .

  • "Lovely cottage in close proximity to Keswick- walkable into town in 5 mins."

    The cottage had everything we needed and we had a comfortable stay. Good base for some lovely walks. Made use of the rocking chair in the bedroom for feeding our baby :) Our only comments are: 1. The garden isn't secure so we needed to keep an eye on the dog every time we let her out as she could run right round the side of the house to the road, albeit a quiet residential street. 2. The washing machine needed a clean as was grubby around the trim and marked our clothes jn places. 3. Would be really handy to have some coat hooks to hang your coats on after walks. 4. The beds are rather hard. We had to sleep on top of a duvet to make it comfortable! 5. I had requested a cot in the cottage but there wasn't one when we arrived. Luckily we had decided to take our travel cot anyway. Other than those minor points we had a lovely time at Fell End thank you!

  • "We had a lovely stay at Fell End with two young children."

    It is in a good location, less than 10 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick. The house is very comfortable and it was great to have off street parking. The garden is nice though the grass needed cutting and inside some of the carpets need cleaning (maybe replacing) but these were minor points. We would recommend it and would stay again ourselves.

  • "Fell end is a lovely place to stay , parking the car on the driveway is a bonus ."

    A beautiful garden to relax in on an evening or have coffee . The house is in a quiet peaceful area and is well equipped and comfortable , and within walking distance of centre of town , the only fault as such was that the furniture , skirting , widow sills etc. could do with a dust , obviously had not been done for a while . However we had a great holiday and would definitely return .

    We find the quiet location is excellent for exploring Keswick and its local attractions. The property itself is comfortable and spacious with a south west facing patio which is ideal to enjoy the afternoon sunshine.

    It was great to have off street parking. It would be even better if the garden was made more secure for the dog visitors but we just took ours out on his lead. The biscuits where a lovely touch, although we were surprised no tea or coffee.

  • "Enjoyed our stay enormously."

    The location is an excellent base for exploring the Lake District and the off-road parking is great (now that the entrance has been widened). The house was well appointed and very comfortable for our grown up family of 4. The kitchen was kitted out well - it was easy to just turn up and start holidaying from day 1. My only issue is that the listing describes the car-port as providing "secure storage" which is not, IMO, accurate. Whilst it was possible to secure our kayak with a chain to the wooden supports, this was hard to do and without a gate and/or secure fixing posts (metal and concreted in) I would say it was not as secure as the listing implies.

  • "The property wasn’t as described as the garden was completely open not enclosed as originally described."

    It would be unsuitable for people with dogs or young children as the garden is open to the driveway and road. The owners suggestion of parking the car to block it is not a helpful one - for a start you wouldn’t be able to open the door to get out as the drive isn’t wide enough at that point. The bottom of the garden has a white plastic rope across saying no access - it had some kind of run down shed/greenhouse beyond. We didn’t go close enough to look. The garden is a mess compared to the house. It is completely over looked even on the patio. A small wire fence and a couple of sparse shrubs meant sitting outside the neighbours are looking at you. Not great when they had 5 kids running around screaming. The garden was usable. This was frustrating as we booked this house wanting a garden and luckily for us the weather was very good making it even more frustrating. The house was ok but dirty dishes were left in the dishwasher and the outside bin was completely full on arrival. It wasn’t emptied during our stay either. The water pressure was rubbish so even though it has two showers you can use them at the same time. The significant price increase really isn’t justified - too many things were wrong to justify it even with covid, cost of living etc. Disappointing as we’ve had lovely cottages through Heart of the Lakes in previous years but this has put us off booking with you again.

  • "Having been in this property before we discovered some bad points this time."

    Both toilets under the rim were filthy and not hygienic. On stripping the bed linen as requested on departure we found a large stain on the double duvet which looked like it had been washed but was still clearly present, this should be changed for a new one immediately. The sofas in the lounge are in need of replacement the cushions have gone and you just sink in to them, not pleasant to sit on. Apart from these points the accommodation and facilities are good. It is a nice quiet location with in a stroll of the town.

  • "An excellent property in a superb location."

    Warm and welcoming during a very cold, wet week. Garden is not actually enclosed as it is open to the road. Parking would be vastly improved if the unused gate post and protruding brickwork were removed.

  • "Game of 2 halves as they say, first half the house is lovely and well located, warm and cosy."

    However the contents inside are at times dire. The kitchen utensils and pans are terrible and look like they came from any old place the owners could get them from, come on guys get some new stuff. Crockery is OK but a big shortage on things like decent measuring jugs etc. The sofa opposite the fire is fit for the tip, not because it looks bad but because it's like sitting on the floor, the guts have gone out of it. The week was made somewhat sickly though by the end of the week strip down of the bedding as requested. Owners you should make sure that when you take duvet covers off the duvet is presentable, the main bedroom duvet had a big brown stain on it, don't even want to think what might have caused that, get yourself some new cleaners if they cant see things like that. Also mentioned by others is the TV, an ancient JVC that's about as smart as a brick is not good enough these days, nothing wrong with the connection speed, just the TV does not support the latest tech. And yes the signal is rubbish at times when watching terrestrial TV. The driveway as mentioned by others is at times inaccessible if you have a decent sized car, get rid of the metal post and 300mm of the wall, sorted in an hour. Garden is not secure for dogs, also mentioned before, and needs a gate to the driveway, the rest is reasonable. It's a shame, it could and should be so good, but unfortunately it's let down by what's inside it, so no we won't be visiting again, and we go to the Lakes every year, and really this is our first issue in 25 years of staying in various locations, and the first negative review we've posted. 2 stars for the property, but nothing for the contents unfortunately.

  • "The television reception is poor and at times was not watchable, we switched off."

    Why not use WiFi option for tv, a simple solution. Two part used toilet rolls one in each bathroom is rather stingy. Parking for larger cars is very tight. The metal post and low wall exasperated the difficulty especially when the street is packed with other vehicles. These could easily be improved. An extra front door key would be nice as access to key box and patio door is not possible with two large cars on the drive. The oven needed a good clean, although to be fair we did not use it as we ate out on a night. Other than than these issues it was a nice house in a good location.

  • "Lovely house in a great location near to town but very quiet."

    Shame that the garden isn't enclosed and secure especially when having a dog. Water pressure drops when running more than one item at a time and would be nice to have some blinds in the living room and front bedrooms for some privacy. Would book again for 2022 but the only thing putting us off is the cost, a price increase of £450 from this year, I expect a small rise but that amount is extortionate.

  • "Really appreciated the outside space in the wonderful weather."

    Great too that there is a drive for parking two cars. Unfortunately there was an issue parking wider cars. The hedge could do with being cut back. Not sure why there is a gatepost with no gate and the bricks of the wall sticking out also add to the entry problem. We really like the open plan, light and airy back public room downstairs. We liked that this area of the town is quiet. There was a problem with water pressure, which I appreciate might have been the case elsewhere in the town. It was not possible to have both showers in use at one time. As soon as a second source of water was used anywhere in the house, the pressure deteriorated considerably. Would appreciate a basin in the kitchen sink. Basic cleaning was ok but anything beyond that not really good enough e.g. there was a layer of dust on top of the chest of drawers in the twin room. With the exception of the water pressure, all those other issues could be easily resolved. This was our second visit and we do like the property.

  • "This could be a lovely holiday property if the owner spent some money on it and it had some TLC."

    Shortly before our arrival date I saw some reviews complaining about the cleanliness and the poor TV reception. I contacted Heart Of The Lakes and was reassured that the issues had been resolved. Sadly this was not the case. One of the sofas was covered in dog hairs, the joints on the dining table had food debris in them and the windows were dirty. The outside space under the car port had rubbish which had clearly been there some time. On the terrace there were two chimney pots with pots of dead flowers in them. The tv reception was appalling and at times it was impossible to watch anything. The water pressure is poor and when water is drawn in one area, it stops the flow elsewhere. The kitchen is not well supplied with equipment.This is not a cheap property to stay in and should be better for the price. I would never stay here again

  • "The standard of cleaning was poor."

    The TV was almost useless as far as BBC was concerned i.e. no reception for 2 days & the rest of the time the picture & sound broke up so much it was impossible to watch. The upstairs shower is poor with the water temperature fluctuating far too much during showering & low water pressure. There also needs to be far more instruction available on managing the CH - what is in the CH cover is useless.

  • "Although we had to defer for a year due to Covid19 the additional cost was unnecessary high originally quoted an extra £220 eventually settled on £117."

    Having stayed at this property for a number of years, the cleanliness was not up to normal standards and the property look tired and in need of a good spruce up and lick of paint. The lack of suitable cookware dishes was disappointing. The TV had intermitting problems especially on BBC channels and in these times I would expect more choice. The instructions for the central heating was very poor again. However still enjoyed the lakes and the location of the property.

The property

Fell End is ideally located on a quiet street in the thriving market town of Keswick, with easy access to the breath-taking Derwentwater Lake.

Neutrally decorated throughout with a great social aspect with an open-plan living area, this semi-detached property is an ideal choice for families and friends seeking a relaxing break to the Lake District.

Walking inside you will enter into the stylish open-plan living area where you can relax in the sitting area before the electric fire while your dinner cooks in the oven.

Gather the dining table resting in the centre of the room, whether for home-cooked evening meals or a board game brought from home.

A contemporary kitchen completes the setup with sleek white units and all the necessary appliances and cooking utensils you could need for a self-catered break.

On a balmy day, slide open the patio doors to allow seamless access to the garden where the children and dog can play (please note the garden isn't enclosed) while the adults kick back with a gin and tonic on the outdoor furniture.

Retire to the delightful king-size bedroom on the first floor, with crisp white cotton sheets and wardrobe space for your clothes, while across the hall is a twin and a single bedded which can be favoured by children.

There is also a family bathroom with bath and separate shower so you can choose how best to prepare for the day.

A short stroll will bring you to the town centre of Keswick where you can find essential supermarkets amongst a range of boutiques, gift shops, outdoor clothing retailers, bars, restaurants and family activities such as a climbing wall, pitch and putt golf course, charming cinema and the fascinating Pencil Museum.

Derwentwater is an ideal location to view the Lakes at its best, go for a boat ride or picnic on the shores while taking in the admirable views of Skiddaw and Catbells.

Visit Go Ape at Grizedale Forest for a day of thrills and adventure, with a treetop rope course and zip wires at 40 feet in the air, you can get a birdseye view of the striking landscape, or for a more relaxed activity simply explore the pretty woodland trails on foot or bike.

Fell End is a fabulously presented house, perfect for exploring the North Lakes and beyond.
