  • "The perfect property in an ideal location."

    Spotlessly clean and all the facilities you could ever need. We've stayed at Oakhurst previously and will definitely be returning.

  • "Oakhurst is really well-equipped, comfortable, spacious and ideally located."

    The four of us had a fab weekend, and enjoyed having a bedroom and a bathroom each. The front door lock was temperamental which meant I nearly had to call for help on one occasion, but brute force and ignorance saved the day. Also there are many MANY coffee makers but only one small teapot. Overall we had a brilliant stay, and intend to come back again.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay in Oakhurst and would definitely consider returning again."

    It had everything we needed in a great location. We also fell lucky with the parking. Our family appreciated the en-suites and the champagne in the welcome pack was a lovely treat over the New Year break! Thank you xx

    Modern kitchen and bathrooms. Everything you need for comfortable break. Comfortable beds and quality bedding. Thanks for lovely stay. The only thing would be good if a later check out was available 10am rather early

  • "Thank you for a wonderful week at Oakhurst!"

    The house is lovely, with pretty much everything you could need. Plenty of space to sit and chat. The bath is huge enough to swim in, it's amazing! And the cottage was nice and warm in chilly November. Everyone slept fine so the beds must have been consistently comfortable. The only down side for us was the lack of grass in the garden for our dog, but really was no great inconvenience and certainly hasn't lessened our enjoyment of the holiday! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will likely be back again next year! :D

  • "An amazing house!"

    Perfect for our family of six. Ideal location as it is a short walk into town and also to the lakeside. Beds are very comfy and showers are fantastic. The house is so well equipped and has everything you could ask for and more! The welcome pack was a really nice touch and very much appreciated. Thank you. We will definitely recommend to others.

  • "Perfect for the 3 of us - one en-suite each."

    Instruction book in one place for all appliances would be good . No idea about bins as no instructions- we got lucky putting them out ! Sofa etc in lounge are way to heavy to move. Far too many cushions in bedrooms / pillows are thick . Would use again. Parking outside the property was ok as I left the car for a week and used buses

  • "2nd visit for us!"

    House is perfect location and has lovely bedding, most rooms en-suite and furnishings are quality and had everything required for your family stay. We were very comfy. Only negative in hope of a few little changes Can you ever over equip a kitchen ? Yes ( not much room to put food shop). Any the living room cusions need replacing at feather were leaking out. Plus you need a washing line, god forbid you hang it in what we thought was a shared courtyard. Would Definitely go again and recommend this property. Thank you

  • "The En-suite bathrooms and kitchen are of a very high standard and also modern looking."

    We felt that some of the decor and furnishings are a little tired looking which is not in keeping with the kitchen and bathrooms. The connecting internal doors cannot be opened as we assume new carpets have been fitted. The front gate and door are in need of attention. Excellent location for the centre of Keswick and the house is very spacious.

    We couldn't work the top oven especially the microwave which is important in a holiday let also the tv was basic would have been great if we could have connected to are Netflix/prime especially over the Christmas period other than that we had a great stay thank you

  • "Lovely accommodation upstairs, 3 en-suite rooms etc Nice new carpet throughout which made the house feel great, with good central heating system in the very cold weeks we were there No smart TV, unusual for the price of the accommodation Man who replaced sheets and towels - very good Dishwasher was not working when we arrived - Maybe this explained the ‘not as clean as it should be’ plates, cutlery etc."

    Dishwasher worked once I had worked out how to reset it (3 resets required in the two weeks) Microwave sometimes decided to simply not work, never resolved, no idea why it would stop working, but it did. Reported both but neither issue resolved. Used tumble drier once - had to empty very full condensed water container and clean completely blocked fluff filter. Used washing machine once - had to clean powder tray as congealed with powder. But we did have a wonderful two weeks :)

    All having access to separate bathrooms was very useful. The kitchen was really well equipped. Parking was easy and the location so close to town we didn't need to move the cars at all.
