  • "Enjoyed stay in Keswick immensely."

    The flat is as described, modern, clean & perfect for a short break. Parking space a little tricky to get car into but very useful in busy town. Some noise late at night & early morning from traffic, etc but to be expected with such a central location.

  • "Fox's Den is a well equipped apartment, which was lovely and warm."

    Added bonus was a private parking space. The Apartment is in a central location so we parked up and left the car all week, doing lots of amazing local walks. Only downsize was that the wifi didnt work, but we contacted the office and we was given the code for the apartment above.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay here."

    We loved being so near to the centre of the town. The accommodation was extremely clean and had everything we needed with a parking space which was a big bonus for us. I would certainly recommend it.

  • "We have just returned from a week at Fox's Den, Keswick."

    The apartment is in central Keswick and so is ideal for all the many amenities the town has to offer. The apartment is very clean and well furnished. It has everything you need for a good stay. Appliances and heating are easy to use with clear instructions. Parking space is a bonus. The main entrance is not as beautiful as the apartment itself, but it is secure. There are also clear instructions what to do at the end of the break relating to Covid. It is clear that cleanliness is a high priority at this location. If you are considering booking a stay in Keswick, and plan on using the local pubs and restaurants, I would highly recommend you reconsider booking this town currently. Keswick used to have fantastic pubs, but now the pubs are restaurants that happen to serve beer, because of the Covid regulations. Many use a pre-booking system that have a two to three night delay. Some are on first come first served, but the queues are long. Most are just booked up all night. If you just require a few drinks, horror upon horror - just second class citizens. You are not allowed to drink inside but shown to a back yard or overfull beer garden. Not very pleasant with the rain we had during our stay. We tried twice but just stayed in at night. The town is too full currently and is not ready for the visitor numbers it had pre-Covid. We will book Keswick again, but not until Covid virus is beaten and things get back to normal. When we do book we will certainly try to book Fox's Den first.

  • "Excellent accommodation - warm, clean and comfortable."

    All required things present and nothing missing. Well decorated and beds v comfortable. Town either wasn’t noisy or we couldn’t hear any noise. Couldn’t adjust shower room radiator so room hot - slight waste of energy? Entrance passage and gate doesn’t do property justice - looks a bit unwelcoming but there’s little one can do about that I guess!

  • "First of all I would like to say that we found our stay in the cottage very clean and comfortable."

    It was ideal in so far as to its superb location very close to all shops and restaurants and all local attractions including ,the pencil museum , Puzzle and illusion museum and the proximity to the fabulous derwent water where we hired a rowing boat and a 6 mph power boat which were great fun. my husband fished off the piers catching perch and roach. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed your stay in the lake district loving the mountains rivers and lakes.

  • "It was not a problem for us, but we think that as the flat is overlooking a road it is subject to traffic noise and this might be mentioned in the flat description."

    Thought the pressure sensor bedside lights in the main bedroom were great fun.

    It was stylish and yet very child friendly for our toddler. The noise from the street and apartment upstairs would be the only concern we had, but with such an amazing central location we understand street noise is very difficult to avoid. Thank you for a fantastic stay!

  • "Could do with a blind in kitchen, otherwise a delightful flat with high standard furniture and fittings."

    Warm and cosy with gorgeous shower. Shame there had been a washer there before, but no longer, so will consider booking their flat above which does. Was pleasantly surprised only muffled sounds from street below in evening. A little awkward approaching main entrance but once inside no problems.

  • "I love this flat, it is so convenient as our parent's own and rent out the flat above this one, so you can rent both flats out with family and have privacy and the convenience of being right next door."

    We have rented this flat twice now and have already reserved a third time. It is clean, well stocked and has nearly everything one would need... if I had to think of one thing, it would be nice to have a washing machine, given the weather in the Lake District and the need to wash children's clothes. But overall it is a wonderful flat, with a great view of activity in the town. Many thanks!

  • "I think the price was too steep charging £366 for two nights for two people, especially as it was very noisy in the apartment with people above, double glazing did not stop the noise from the street and from the fan on the wall near the rear bedroom attached to the restaurant, also there were no games in the apartment and no mirror in the rear bedroom."

    The alley way was dirty and not pleasant to walk up in the evenings. people from the restaurant smoked and chatted outside below the rear bedroom window which was also unpleasant for a non smoker. If the price would have been lower then I would have given it higher marks but for that kind of money I expected it to be quiet. The key provider was excellent and should be praised for them allowing us to go in early and to be very attentive.
