  • "We had a great stay for a week in Flat 4, it is really well designed and comfortable with everything you need, it is very well located for central Keswick with easy access to the hills and surrounding areas."

    The views from the front bedroom are stunning. We would highly recommend this luxurious flat to anyone considering a trip here.

  • "A beautiful property, tastefully decorated and furnished."

    Fully equipped with everything needed to enjoy a week (or more) away. The accommodation is also ideally located, within walking distance of the Lake, the Theatre, the town and supermarkets. Perfect!

  • "Our second time staying at Howe Keld (last time in no."

    6) and it didn’t disappoint! How do you improve upon perfect location, beautiful, stylish, spacious accommodation and views to die for? Yet within a couple of minutes’ walk of fabulous shops and restaurants and outdoor space - and only 5-10 mins from Derwentwater. Loved the huge beds and private entrance. Had everything we needed. Lots of stairs but we didn’t mind that. Also no garden/private outdoor space but you have beautiful outdoor spaces 5 mins walk away (we had fabulous weather and took a picnic blanket to the shores of Derwentwater most evenings). Great communication with the management too. Highly recommended, you honestly can’t go wrong.

    Angela the representative on site was very helpful, especially as we had a medical issue in the middle of the night. Very well positioned for the town and amenities too. Would recommend and we will visit again. Thank you.

  • "The property was absolutely perfect in every way."

    Extremely clean and comfortable with lots of special Christmas touches which were much appreciated as our stay was over Christmas week. The only slight negative was the comfort of the sofa and chair. I appreciate it was in keeping with the contemporary decor but, after a long walk in inclement weather, the low furniture with a low back was difficult to ‘chill out’ on. However this is perhaps more of a personal issue from an aging customer

  • "The building has been renovated from a B&B (which we have stayed in previously) into apartments."

    The owners have done a wonderful job and don’t appear to have scrimped on anything. Easy to self cater if you wanted to with plenty of equipment. Comfy beds, good bathrooms, really good soft furnishings that gives it a homely feeling. All of good quality. The suite sadly was very uncomfortable (sorry), it was low and those with mobility issues would struggle to sit and stand as some of us did. Others may well indeed find it ok. We had a couple of problems whilst there, one of the showers wasn’t working properly and the heating didn’t appear to be working. There is an on-site manager Angela who is lovely and had the Plummer out the same day. The shower was fixed with a new part but the pump had gone on the heating and a new part had to be ordered but everything was sorted the following day. The owners brought us some electric radiators to use very quickly until the problem was rectified. Able to park outside front door and off car. Parking disc free for one car in public car park very close to building and we just bought another one from the Council online which was reasonably priced as we had two cars. Thanks who Angela who sorted everything out and to the owners responding quickly. We will definitely return.

    Very comfortable and well equipped. Lovely big comfy beds . We had a fantastic week despite the weather trying it’s best to spoil it. Angela, the house manager, was an absolute diamond , nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Keswick.

  • "A very comfortable and well equipped apartment with great views."

    Beds really comfortable and bathrooms excellent. Kitchen equipment very good and had everything we needed to cook breakfast and a few evening meals. Really enjoyed relaxing in the apartment in the evening and so peaceful at night even though Keswick was really busy during the day. Loved the decor and paintings. Parking in the central car park worked out well as we just walked around Keswick for our shopping and to the lake and only needed the car to go out to walk elsewhere. Minor point- the sash window facing Catbells in the kitchen/dining room was difficult and heavy to open and close (could do with a bit of adjusting) Also some really simple instructions on how to use the oven and how to get the grill to work would be great. We had a great stay and we would love to come back.

  • "We absolutely loved this property and will book for half term next year if available."

    The facilities were perfect…drying room for our wetsuits and bike store for our bikes were just brilliant. The owners have thought of everything The views from every window were spectacular Only negative point but really only meant constructively…we had assumed that as we had booked as a family of four with two boys that the beds would have been made up as singles…this was rectified after one night but the lady who rearranged the beds said that there may be a charge. I wouldn’t expect to be charged for this. Can’t wait to go back next year our family collectively agreed that it was the best accommodation. We loved the artwork and have since been on line to order similar prints.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have asked Heart of the Lakes to review bookings with children and we will do so ourselves to ensure the correct bed configuration is set up. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
