  • "There were inconsistencies between the pre visit information and the actual ."

    Eg we were advised to bring tea towels, hand sanitiser and washing up cloths but these were provided. The toilet seat in the main bathroom is loose. There is no grab handle in either bathroom. The appliances were of excellent quality but over complicated. We had to ask next door neighbours for assistance with the TV. They said they had difficulty too. It would have been useful to know in advance that mobile signal is erratic. Having said all that, Maple Cottage is an excellent holiday retreat and our comments are well meant. Thank you.

  • "The apartment was very homely and the owners had thought of everything to include to make their guests welcomed."

    Wonderfully comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, washer dryer, nice showers, good parking, and great views from the front of the property. The location was good for us, with a 25 minute walk into Keswick, part of which can take you along the C2C disused rail walk (much nicer than walking in via the road). The property is also not far from the Castlerigg stone circle, a short up hill walk and then you can do another circular walk round and down into Keswick. We loved our stay. Theres loads to do in the area which is simply stunning.

  • "Comfortable and pleasant accommodation on the outskirts of Keswick, although too far to walk to the town centre."

    Apartment was clean and very well equipped, although the bedrooms were rather on the small side. Two main points which prevented me to give it higher rating: a) the apartment has no views other than the small courtyard, b) the access lane is in poor condition and is just on the borderline to be driveable. Apartment information note blames the land owner for refusing the permission to improve it. This I believe to be a copout on part of the house management, as the lorryload of aggregates would improve it substantially without any need for a planning permission.

  • "Maple Cottage is a lovely property."

    Very well maintained and the kitchen contained everything one could need with extra crockery, glasses, mugs. The property is facing into a very pleasant courtyard. Once you leave the property, there are amazing views from the carpark and the property is surrounded by fields with sheep and lambs. As previous reviews have mentioned, the last part of the road leading up to the property is quite rough, and the owner explains in her brochure that this is beyond the control of the owners. There was a leaking downpipe that I reported to the owner. It was raining a lot during our stay so it was very noticeable, someone came out to fix it but it remained leaking. Nearby is Castlerigg Stone Circle which is well worth a visit. We had a wonderful stay at Maple Cottage and we would definitely return.

  • "An excellent property, well equipped and very comfortable."

    However TV is restricted by Keswick local mast NOT providing a full service on all channels.ie channels 19 & 20 A satellite connection would be better. I could not use my O2 phone although their network coverage is supposed to be good and include that area around Keswick. EE did work on another phone.

  • "Our German friends of over thirty years shared apartment number 5 at Maple Cottage Keswick with us and like ourselves were very happy with the accommodation everything we required was available."

    We saw much of the area during our stay, a good point to travel out from, and our friends were very impressed with the stunning scenery, in fact he took over four hundred photographs! Two small improvements to the on suite, a toilet roll holder on the wall, and a flat surface close to the wash basin would be very convenient, not a complaint ! Thanks for a pleasant stay Mr & Mrs Robert Rolph.

  • "Stayed here in mid-March when storm Gareth arrived."

    Jackie the Lakes cottages representative was very helpful in accommodating our change in arrival time due to the storm. She was also very helpful in resolving a couple of minor problems. My wife and I have stayed here in the summer during a heatwave when the apartment was nice and cool. This time when the outside temperature was 3C the apartment was nice and warm. It was easy to control the heating and hot water. There was also a convector heater in the main room. The apartment is very well equipped and well designed. Hooks on the back of the doors and suitcase stands would be very useful.

  • "The photograph on the website was of the front of a large old building suggesting the property was one of the apartments shown."

    However, the building has 4 wings built around a central enclosed courtyard. The apartment being let was not shown on the website and was in the wing to the right of the front of the building. The apartment has no views whatsoever, despite the website saying it does. The apartment itself was modern and well equipped but was damp, smelled like an old wet dog, had mould on the inside of the window frames, cobwebs in every room and the bath and shower plug holes were both blocked. Worst of all, the bed sheets were stained and appeared unwashed.

  • "We had a lovely stay and would recommend."

    The hob and oven are electric and not gas as listed. There are only two car parking spaces and not three as listed. Neither of these mattered to us but would be good to correct on the listing. There was also a grumpy man who lived in one of the apartments or cottages who was trying to stop people accessing the courtyard from the rear even though it was an access route and the only alternative fire exit. He pulled a grit bin with a spade on top to try and stop people. He seems to have no right to do this as well as blocking a fire exit. This issue should be rectified.

  • "The apartment was very comfortable however the double bed may require a new mattress soon and perhaps the towels."

    We were surprised to find there was only a view of the courtyard from the apartment and that the main photograph showed two totally different apartments which was misleading. Having said that the apartment was very quiet and we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. I enjoyed the reclining settees after a long days walk and the apartment was the best equipped we have ever experienced. We would definitely stay again.
