  • "Our second visit to this very comfortable cottage."

    It is very well equipped and in a good location. Our only concern is the shower screen which leaks after every shower onto the floor and needs to be replaced. Would highly recommend this property

    Very close to the town centre. The bed was very comfortable however I can't say the same about the sofas. We had an issue parking as Keswick was so busy. We had to park a few streets away and walk to the house with our luggage.

    Loved having a washer dryer to launder our clothes, especially as our own washer at home is broken. Our only difficulty was the parking outside. There was a lot of competition for any available space. My husband eventually managed to park there after a few days.

  • "Swinside was a very nice place to spend a few days."

    It was immaculate on arrival and has been simply but tastefully modernised. All appliances were of high standard and detailed instructions on how to operate them were left in a folder. Due to the Covid crisis the cleaning regime has been modified and again detail instructions were left for both guest use and also to inform the guest what the cleaner is doing to keep things safe. Sanitiser and spray cleaner are all provided. It gave such a feeling of confidence in the property. I'd definitely recommend Swinside.

  • "Swinside is a fabulous property."

    It is a credit to its owners, very well equipped with high quality fixtures and fittings. Extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bath was a welcome luxury after a day’s walking. In the morning the shower was exhilarating, hot and powerful. Great location, easy to access and a short stroll from town. The only downside is the roadside parking as spaces can be in short supply.

    Reviewed by Clive5.0Sep 2019

  • "Bath showers are awkward to step into and to maintain balance, a walk-in shower would be safer and more comfortable, especially for elderly people."

    The maps provided of the LD were basic and didn't really provide an indication where to go. Some clear walking routes of the area would have been helpful. The lack of roadside parking availability was problematic. We had to search 15-20 minutes every afternoon to find a space in the proximity of the property (not the agency's fault). In terms of value for money, the cottage is in a very good location and it is peak summer season, nevertheless the price for the 4 nights, we found on the high side. When comparing to eg Park Hotel with full breakfast included, price of cottage wasn't really that competitive. However, we still had an enjoyable stay and made the most of the gorgeous area of natural beauty. Accommodation for us was a secondary factor of our holiday.

    Only used the car to drive to other areas outside of Keswick. Initially concerned as previous reviews mentioned parking problems - however we didn't have any issues parking outside for the entire week. Power shower was fantastic and the beds were wonderful. Although very small, the kitchen everything we needed to prepare all our food for the week. Only minor comment on the house is that the leather sofas are not particularly comfy - especially after long days walking! Strong wifi was a bonus. We love Keswick and will certainly be back - this trip is becoming a yearly tradition for me and my mum :)

    Basically you just won't as shopworkers in Keswick park outside the town and walk in to work. I can only assume that you airbrushed out all the cars in the picture of Swinside as cars are parked all day (workers) and night (occupiers). Our first time booking a property in a town and probably the last as I like to be parked fairly close to the property at all times. I am a keen recycler but all items had to be placed into purple plastic bags of which non were provided in the property, you were expected to go to the council offices to get them. Thats a no-no. We were on holiday and not traipsing around town looking for the relevant office. We will not be back at Swinside.
