  • "Me and my boyfriend found the pillows quite uncomfortable to sleep on but other than that everything was great!"

    Bed was super comfy, the cottage was spacious and clean and the town centre only a 5 minute walk away.

  • "A lovely little cottage in the heart of Keswick."

    It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Very warm and comfortable and had everything you would need for a great holiday! We loved the fact that we could walk to lots of places from the cottage.

  • "Would not be able to stay again or recommend as becoming non dog friendly cottage on the holiday cottage listings so would only book a dog friendly cottage when we come to Keswick each year for a break away with our small dog."

    We would look elsewhere for dog friendly properties or accommodation. Such a shame that we won’t be able to return with our dog as the cottage is great, really clean and good central quiet location.

  • "Lovely property, very clean (credit to the cleaner on an excellent job)."

    Kitchen equipped with high quality appliances and crockery. Well situated for Keswick town centre. Would recommend a visit to Laura in the lakes, Hope cafe and The Dog and Gun, all dog friendly and excellent food and service.

  • "This cottage is very well decorated and maintained, also very clean with everything you need for a self catering holiday, the only problem is parking as Covid has ment more people than normal in Keswick we where lucky when we arrived that someone was leaving so we managed to park the other side of the road opposite the cottage so we could leave our car there all week, as our friends where staying on a caravan site and took us out and about."

  • "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.

    There was an extra single bed in the bedroom if needed. The location was right near the centre of Keswick and walks right from the door. Parking is a bit tight in this area but we had no problems finding a space on the street. The cottage was lovely and cosy & had everything you need.

  • "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 CliveSep 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.

    Swinside Cottage is beautifully appointed, warm, comfortable and it would suit anyone who wants to be in the heart of Keswick. From furniture to crockery, everything was high quality and after much discussion with my husband, we decided on a score of 11 out of 10! Very impressed indeed!

    Not too far from town centre, parks and lake. Great for a stroll or a meal /drink in the evening. Couldn't fault the accommodation. Owners had furnished and equipped the cottage very tastefully and to a high standard. The bed was really comfortable and much appreciated after a good days walking. We have spent three holidays there and will continue to do so in the future as it most definitely ticks all our boxes.

  • "Great location in centre of Keswick, really close on foot for everything we needed."

    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 :)

  • "Parking outside the property is a serious problem during the day."

    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.
