  • "Absolutely gorgeous home."

    We loved it and felt really relaxed. The ‘view’ was exceptional and so calming. The ability to properly live in the house was really easy. We had all we needed. Even though the walk to town is a little hike, it was a lovely hike! Will definitely recommend - in fact we already have. We will absolutely come back. The only comment I have would be given the size of the bedrooms, a bigger bed would be a lovely addition.

  • "The property and view were amazing and my family and I enjoyed this home very much."

    A few very small details of feedback, my parents are elderly and one of the reasons I chose the property was for the bedroom downstairs, and en-suite would have been a good idea so they did not have to go up the stairs to shower. The dryer filter was blocked and prevented us from using this facility, the kitchen needs some larger bowls for salad and soup. The quilt was light and as the season change a warmer one would be required. These are small points of feedback. We had a wonderful time in the house and really have no complaints, Keswick is magical and the property is in a prefect stop, close to the railway for long walks with my husband and little dog, and popping into Keswick. Would definitely stay again.

  • "The property was immaculately presented, spotlessly clean, I didn't feel I needed to clean anything which is amazing."

    Beautiful views from the windows and ideally situated for Keswick. The downstairs cloakroom was very well thought out with plenty of space for hanging coats and space for shoes. The only thing we had a bit of a problem with was the bed in the ensuite. As soon as you sit on it it creaks, meaning any turning in the night makes a noise. It took us about 4 nights to get used to it so we didn't wake each other up. This is just a minor problem which maynot affect others unless you are a light sleeper. There was a large bowl in the kitchen containing single use coffee, tea bags, sugar and hot chocolate, so very nice touch. Would definitely return.

    Thank you so much Samantha for your comments and leaving the cleaner a thank you note and chocolates as the property was so clean. It’s so rewarding when people do nice things and she was very happy that her hard work and attention to detail had been appreciated. Thank you for scoring us 100% and I will be happy to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards Tanya (owner) Property Owner

  • "Lovely property and The View is amazing!"

    Very comfortable and plenty of room. It is a fair walk into town and up on a fairly steep hill if you have mobility issues. There is a bus but service stops quite early. Taxi’s can be busy at peak times. Owner extremely helpful for any problems you may have, we had a couple of problems with the fire alarms (beware very loud!) so make sure you open windows and have extractor fan on when cooking, they are quite sensitive. Also plumbing… but owner/Sykes dealt with them swiftly. Definitely recommend especially if you enjoy walking/biking/canoing in the area. Lots of space in the garage for bikes/canoes etc. But also great for relaxing and enjoying the view.

    Thank you Joanne for taking the time to do a review and recommending us to future guests. It was nice speaking with yourself. The house is in one of the most sought after areas in keswick with the most amazing views as you experienced, and extremely well equipped to make our guests stay comfortable. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with outstanding views."

    Only one drawback during our stay was the white decor throughout and white blinds which we found impractical and which made it impossible to sleep after 4:30am it was so bright with the early morning sunshine during June. Having said that, we had a week of wall to wall sunshine so that was a bonus. On balance a very pleasant stay.

    Thank you for taking time to give feedback following your stay at The View, we are delighted that you had a very enjoyable stay, wow what a week you had for weather bright sunshine daily a bonus in the Lakes. Kind regards The customer relations team Lakes Cottage Holidays. Property Owner

  • "A couple of minor issues - crumbs in food cupboards and hairs in the bath / sinks so had to be cleaned on arrival."

    A couple of safety issues, no oven gloves at property so an accident waiting to happen. All the knives are really blunt so need to provide a knife sharpener. Postives, a spacious property with just the best views of the surrounding fells. From sunrise to sunset the views will blow you away. Good size rooms so plenty of space for a family. Big garden, ideal for children or dog. Couldn't be 100% sure it was secure for a small dog so I kept mine on a lead as it is a busy main road outside the property.

  • "We had a really enjoyable week at The View, it was exactly what we were looking for."

    It really is a great property and we loved it. The only thing we haven’t given top rating for was cleanliness, as we found a used disposable nappy on the floor behind the curtains in the upstairs yellow bedroom. We also found a mobile phone down between the cushions of one of the sofas, plus a toy bus on the floor underneath the same sofa and we left both these items with a note for the cleaner, but we threw the disposable nappy away! There were a few small items which we thought could have been useful - a large coffee cafetière (we ended up using coffee bags instead of ground coffee), a serrated bread knife (as we had difficulty trying to slice whole loaves with chopping knives), a tray and a squeegee for wiping down the glass shower doors after use. Apart from these few minor points, we can highly recommend The View and would love to visit the Lakes again in the future. Excellent location, beautiful outlook, great house and garden, what’s not to love!

    Hi Laurence thank you so much for taking the time to do a review, I really appreciate it. I am so pleased you had an enjoyable week and it was exactly what you were looking for. The house and gardens are great and the views outstanding!! I will act on your requests. Thank u Property Owner

  • "When we booked The View the property was listed as pet friendly."

    Between our booking and our stay the owners changed their minds and did not want to accept pets, but agreed to honour our booking. The property was decorated to a high standard, well equipped, and very comfortable. Much as we would like to book The View again the prohibition on pets means that we will have to look elsewhere in the future.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review and scoring us100% , It means so much to us to know you had such a good stay at The View. We decided not to accept dogs after completing the extensive refurbishment. Property Owner

  • "The house, the location & the view were outstanding."

    Also, the effort made to welcome us with Xmas decorations, etc was very much appreciated. However, this was the only property we’ve ever been to where there was no information folder or guest book. A few too many niggles to award 5 stars. eg. baking tray in kitchen that doesn’t fit in either of the ovens, no foil or cling film in kitchen, TV badly positioned in the living room and we couldn’t work out how to use the one in the bedroom. The bed in the downstairs bedroom had to be moved and propped as it didn’t sit right on the floor and therefore rocked and made a racket every time you moved. Also the shower in the main bathroom was cold. Finally, there was a lack of bins inside the property.

    So pleased you found the location and views outstanding and appreciated us making the house beautiful for Christmas. We have taken on board your comments. There are a selection of baking trays which do fit in the oven, we also provide foil. Apologies the TV remote did need replacement batteries. The bed has also been re positioned. We have not been able to establish an issue with the water. Property Owner

  • "Despite the comments below, we had a really good holiday."

    The property has been recently refurbished to a high standard, but lacked some basic equipment usually found in self catering cottages. Hence the rating. In our opinion these are: A whisk A lemon squeezer Kitchen scissors A dust pan and brush A clothes line or drying rack There was a microwave, but no suitable bowls to use with it. Rather than a tumble dryer, we would have preferred a dish washer! The property was clean with the exception of the oven shelves and trays and some of the pans which were greasy, hence the cleanliness rating. When I booked the property with Lakelovers, a DVD player was listed, and dogs were allowed. Since the original booking, Lakelovers seem to have been taken over by Sykes. The new Sykes listing does not allow dogs and there was not a DVD player. We are very grateful that the owner of the property honoured our original booking which included bringing our dog. We are sad that we won’t be able to return unless we leave our dog in kennels. At the start of the holiday Sykes sent an email enquiring whether everything was in order. I replied that the lobby door lock needed attention. Sykes did not reply. On leaving the property I phoned one of the numbers on the booking information, to report this, a helpful lady (possibly local Lakelovers staff have been retained??) said she would pass this on. We have booked several holidays with Sykes in the past and found them to be very helpful but I wonder if Sykes themselves have been taken over by a larger company and so have lost the personal touch? We hope not.

  • "Beautiful property."

    Located within easy walking access to Keswick. Very spacious, clean and well equipped. Views amazing and so restorative! Would not hesitate to recommend. Only 2 minor things to improve would be: a dishwasher would have been great (especially in view of Covid situation) and also ensuring that the garden was fully enclosed and a front gate present due to a very busy main road (especially important in view of the property being pet friendly on booking). It is a shame as it now appears non-pet friendly, we may not be able to return.

    Thank you for your review. I am so pleased the property exceeded your expections as that is our goal. A dishwasher has now been installed. The side and rear gardens are gated however we have left the parking area to the front ungated for safety and access reasons. Property Owner
