  • "Ideal location to be so close to town centre 5 mins walk."

    Very comfortable and relaxing place to stay with everything you need for a comfortable break.No designated parking by apartment but managed to unload outside on arrival and park in Booth’s to load on departure. Whilst there roadworks outside but not too much of and issue. Main bus depot next door but again not excessively noisy. All round a lovely apartment to stay in. Shame about the weather so spent lots of time boosting the many pub’s economy!! Enjoyed so much we hope to return to stay again. Thank you to the owners.

    Excellent location, clean, comfortable & absolutely everything provided you could possibly need. Thank you, we will definitely be returning!

  • "The apartment was very spacious and clean and the free parking permit is a real bonus in Keswick."

    If I was being really picky the sofa probably could do with new covers and a fan for the bedroom would be a lifesaver - we were lucky to have very hot weather but Saturday nights in Keswick are surprisingly lively so noise is an issue if leaving windows open. Other to that would highly recommend.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. We will look into the fan as suggested, as you can imagine in the lakes we rarely have such hot weather, however this may be something we now need to accept as the norm. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "Had a brilliant stay at The Getaway and would definitely stay again/recommend to others."

    Having stayed in many properties now in central Keswick, this tops my list! Fantastic central location, easy access to supermarkets, parking and the bus stop which I made use of with the £2 single ticket price cap! Having the parking permit with the flat was a godsend and a worry off your mind knowing you're covered for your stay. The flat had everything needed for a comfy stay and as someone who likes to self-cater, it had everything needed to do this. Thank you very much for the stay in your lovely property, I will be looking for availability again in the future!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We know how important our holidays are and we strive to provide everything we think you would need. We are delighted you found the Getaway to your liking and would be happy to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

    Also couldn’t understand why we couldn’t access all freeview channels but that’s just a minor issue. Your already aware with issues with shower but completely useable, lovely comfy bed, property clean throughout and can’t wait to come back next year

    Hi thank you so much for your feedback, we will look into the hoover, sorry it wasn’t working. Regarding the Freeview channels as this is not Freesat there are some channels that are not available, we may look to upgrade this in future. We are delighted you have rebooked and hope you enjoy your next stay as much as this one. Take care Property Owner

    The “extras” were just the icing on the cake like loo roll, washing up liquid, starter tea, coffee and milk! THANK YOU. We hope to be back next year.

    Hi Mrs Mills. Thank you so much for your glowing review. We do have an ironing board so I will look into where that has gone. I will also find out why the bins were not emptied. Once again thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. Property Owner

    A new shower hose and sofa cushions could improve it. And dirty dishes in dishwasher on arrival. Will defo come again...thankyou.

    Please accept our apologies for the dishes being in the dishwasher. This falls below the standards we expect and we will be speaking with the cleaner to avoid any repeats. Thank you for letting us know and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Getaway. The Owner Relations Team. Property Owner

  • "Lovely, comfortable flat."

    I knew it would be a busy road during the day, but it was quiet at night. I will aim to stay again next time I'm in Keswick. The location couldn't be better for the bus and for groceries. (The only improvement would be something in the shower to hold soap, shampoo, etc. There was nowhere else to put them but on the floor at your feet.)

    As Dear Lorna. Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you needed to raise the issues to us. With regards to the shower we have noted this in the guests folder to make sure you are aware but elected to defer the repair until the end of the season. It does not leak but does feel a little weird when you walk on it. The sofa is quite hard, IKEA seem to provide firmer cushions and this may not be to everyone’s tastes, we have inspected them and they appear to be fine. I can only apologise for the dirty dishes and I have been assured this was an oversight by the cleaners and our agents, I have been assured this will be looked into with a view of preventing any further occurrences. Thanks again for you feedback, this is always useful in helping us improve our guests experiences. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "We found the property to be in a very convenient and central location."

    It was well equipped, and the living space was larger than we had expected from your website. The parking permit provided by the owner saved us a fortune in fees, as parking in central Keswick is normally very difficult and expensive. Would recommend and would choose again.

  • "We expected the local traffic noise so that was no problem as we benefited from the handy in-town location."

    Clear admin; well cared for apartment, clean and loads of space, plus lots of 'white goods' if people needed them. Why no blinds in the bedroom? Overall very pleased.

    Shower tray needs sorting but I believe they know about that I think they could find a better place for storing crockery than under the sink apart from that we enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again
