    “Firstly let me say that I shall never book any property through Lakelovers again if I can possibly avoid it!”

    They make promises which they don’t deliver on and have no idea of how to communicate with their customers on issues that need their attention. ...

    They make promises which they don’t deliver on and have no idea of how to communicate with their customers on issues that need their attention. The property itself was very well located and well presented although the skip which was in the parking area and which we were told would be removed “at the beginning of the week” was in fact there all week! Having five en-suite bedrooms was excellent and the accommodation generally for our family gathering of 10 was good. Attention to detail however was lacking and I suspect that the owner probably doesn’t live nearby, leaving these things to the hapless Lakelovers. For example, and as directed by the home manual, we separated all our rubbish only to find that No 20 has no recycling bins. The neighbour confirmed this and asked us not to fill up her bins! There were no bin liners provided or any dishwasher tablets and it would have been nice to have some kindling and a few logs left to get started with one of the log burners. One of the blind pulleys in the upstairs bedroom was broken and there were other small items that if the owner visited or, better still, stayed for a day or two occasionally I’m sure they would pick up. The TV’s could do with an upgrade to the smart variety as well. The garden/courtyard was unkempt and uncared for too. Although as a family we had a great time, at just short of £3000 for the week it didn’t, I’m afraid, represent good value.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review further to your stay with us at Number Twenty; although your comments were disappointing to read. We do apologise that the skip hadn't been removed as we had advised, unfortunately this was out of our hands as the skip belonged to a company responsible themselves for picking this up. The property is managed by an external property management company so your comments have been shared with them to ensure that going forward the expected standards are met for all holiday makers. We would expect guests to supply their own firewood as the property is centrally heated and the wood burners are not the only source of heating. Two members of our team have been to the property since your stay to check everything over and ensure the correct information guests needs is in the property and this is now the case here. We do feel that your comment about the property not being good value for money is unfair as this holiday worked out at £42.80 per person per night and this is exceptional value as there were 10 people staying on this occasion and there are very few places you can stay in Keswick at this price per night. The owner has taken your feedback on board and is going to install a smart TV to the property to ensure the comfort of guests during future stays. Thank you again for your comments and we do hope to welcome you to stay with us again in the future. Kind Regards, The Owners Team Property Owner


The property

Situated in the residential area, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Keswick, Number Twenty is a tastefully refurbished Victorian Lakeland slate terrace house. Benefiting from ample parking for four cars, five en-suite bedrooms, two log burning stoves and a large patio this excellent property offers great accommodation in easy reach of the popular shops, bars, cafes and pubs to be found around the market square in the heart of Keswick. Number Twenty offers quality accommodation, in a great location and is ideally suited to that special family get together or a great base for friends to catch up. Please note we can not accept bookings for Hen or Stag parties. == Accommodation In Detail Approached from the street through the small front garden, the front door opens to a vestibule which in turn leads to a large Victorian Hallway complete with original tiled floor, period features, coat hooks and boot rack. The two reception rooms have been opened up to make one large dual aspect lounge but with feature doors the room can be divided in order to make two smaller lounges each with its own TV and log burning stove. The large kitchen diner is located at the rear of the property. The dining area is made up of character pews around a large farmhouse table and a side door from here opens onto the large patio with outdoor dining furniture and gated access to the parking area. The contemporary fitted kitchen with range cooker is the ideal place to prepare anything from a hearty Lakeland breakfast to a full celebratory dinner for ten. From the hallway the staircase leads to the large landing on the first floor with three bedrooms leading off it; one double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with bath with shower over, a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room WC and a third bedroom with a superking bed and offers an extra single bed and an en-suite shower room with shower, basin and WC. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms a large double bedroom with extra day bed and a twin both of which are complimented with their own en-suite shower rooms. Almost unique for this type of property in Keswick, Number Twenty boasts not only a large patio area, ideal for alfresco dining, but also a large parking area that can easily accommodate four cars. Location Keswick is one of the Lake District's most popular destinations. This friendly town hosts the very popular twice weekly market that has recently won the coveted “Best Outdoor Market” in the Great British Market Awards. The town also offers a fantastic array of shops offering everything from craft bakeries and local produce, antiques, crafts and much, much more. If you are looking for somewhere to eat and drink, a week just won't be long enough to sample the great range of pubs, restaurants, bistros, cafes and wine bars! For a great evening out why not visit the 100 year old Alhambra offering first class cinema entertainment in traditional surroundings or enjoy an evening at “the most beautiful and friendly theatre in Britain”, the 400 seat Theatre By The Lake on the shores of Derwentwater. Enjoy a cruise on Derwentwater, walk onto the fells; Cat Bells, Skiddaw, Coledale Horeshoe and Blencathra are all nearby, head underground at Honister Slate Mines, enjoy mountain biking in Whinlatter Forest; explore the exquisite beauty of Borrowdale and the Scafell range. For day trips throughout the Lake District, Ullswater is a short drive away offering lake cruises, great walking and the beautiful Aira Force Waterfall, Buttermere and Crummock Water offer sublime scenery. Ashness Bridge and Surprise View situated above the Borrowdale Valley should not be missed; nor should the unspoilt village of Watendlath.
