  • "This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Sefton house."

    It is a really nicely presented property with everything you might need. The beds are comfy (and nice that they have been updated since we last stayed so not squeaky!) Everything was as we had hoped (the only niggle was the oven didnt work. Had to use the top part of the oven which is usually a grill. And the shower door kept sticking. Also the tiny sink in the ensuite and tiles behind it needed a good clean.) But we really enjoyed our stay and would book again!

  • "A brilliant place to stay!"

    The house had everything you could want/need & more! The only reason I have marked down slightly for the accuracy of listing is that I don't think the photos do it justice - particularly the dinning room, it is actually a lot bigger than the photo would suggest. The only issue we had when we were there is we had the back door open on one of the days & lots of flys came into the house which we then struggled to get rid of, purchased fly spray in the end & left it in case anyone else has any issues.

  • "Sefton house was fabulous."

    Brilliant location for a quick walk into Keswick, easy on street parking and a fully equipped kitchen. You could access plenty of walks without moving your car. The only thing missing is a washing machine. Yes the laundrette is literally 2 mins away but the last thing you want to do after a day on the fells is to go back out and sit in a laundrette. This is probably the only reason we wouldn't use this house again.

  • "Beautiful large old cottage."

    Close to centre. Well equipped kitchen. Good strength shower even on second floor. Heating was on a timer and was controlled remotely. Unfortunately heating was not adequate for this size of property during a cold February when we stayed. If it hadn’t been for the heating we would have given top marks on everything.

  • "Great location and lovely house."

    We stayed at Christmas and it would have been great to have a Christmas tree or other decorations up. That said otherwise can’t fault house. Keswick is stunningly beautiful-sat on the edge of the lake and surrounded by high peaks. Also great for outdoor gear shopping.

  • "It would be useful to have a downstairs toilet."

    The door handles on all internal doors need attention or replacing.

  • "We had a lovely two week stay in Sefton House."

    The house was comfortable and spacious and adequately equipped. As stated there is no washing machine but the launderette is only a 2 minute walk away. The house is situated on a quiet street only a short walk from the top of Keswick town. Parking is in high demand and sometimes we had to park a short distance away but we always managed to find a space so this was not really an issue. It was an ideal location to base ourselves. Keswick is a delightful, bustling town with plenty of places to eat and drink, 2 supermarkets and of course Derwentwater all in easy walking distance. We would happily return and book this property again.

  • "Tv didn’t work properly and no washing machine which in an outdoor location is puzzling"

    We are sorry you had a problem with the television whilst on holiday, we would have gladly shown you how to use it, or rectify any problems if you had called through to the local office. There is a launderette a short walk away and we have detailed where to obtain a service wash in Keswick. We would love to welcome you back to our house in the future and hope that you enjoyed your stay in Keswick. Property Owner

    The location was perfect and I will definitely be returning in the future.

  • "This was a nice house, comfortable and plenty of space and ideally located for the town centre and the Lakes in general."

    The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The bathrooms and en-suite shower were good, water hot and at good pressure. As mentioned in previous reviews the lack of a washing machine was a disappointment and we would have preferred one in place of the dishwasher. The back door and lock needs looking at as it can be difficult to open sometimes. Overall a good place to stay.

  • "Sefton House was a perfect base for a lovely family holiday in Keswick."

    The House was immaculate with everything you would need for a staycation. Keswick is a beautiful town with lots of things to do and Sefton House is located within 3 minutes of the Main Street where there is an abundance of shops, cafe's and restaurants. I highly recommend Lakes Cottage Holidays as the service we received from start to finish was first class.

    With 3 young children the lack of washing machine was a issue for us although the launderette was close by. The other downside was the parking sometimes we had to park a couple of streets away.
