“Lovely early summer stay at Westies”
Reviewed 16 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Had a wonderful stay at Westies with our family of five. Home was very clean and kitchen was well stocked for all cooking and washing requirements. We found the nice supply of tourist information and especially the catalog of nearby walks, quite useful. The abundance of rainy day games,puzzles, and DVD's also provided a distraction for our youngest. Beds were comfortable and the WIFI was flawless (as per the teenagers). Touch lights in the master was a great idea and saved me from the normal post reading grappling for the elusive off switch. Street parking appeared daunting upon arrival, but after that Saturday, plenty of close spaces were available. Overall, very happy with the accommodation, location, and value.

The house is brilliant, very clean and well equipped, everything, including the bedding and towels, was spotless. It's in a great location, with an easy walk into Keswick, but plenty of parking in town and by the lake at this time of year. We had a great holiday, can't fault anything, including the customer service and welcome, thanks.

“Best. House. Ever.”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Joined a group of friends at the house for a long weekend trip, the house is so warm and homely, everything is very high quality almost as if it has never been used before. Everything you'd expect to find at a holiday rental and more so it really feels like your own home.
We could cook proper meals each night, the oven/hob/dishwasher are very easy to use, there's an abundance of every utensil/dish/cup/glass you could need and loads of food storage.
The bathroom and shower room are hotel standard - the pressure on the shower is amazingly refreshing.
Bedding is very important to me, the thickness of the duvets were perfect thickness and again very homely but with that hotel standard. Loads of storage in the rooms and still spacious and warm.
I definitely want to stay here again, it's close to the shops, in a quiet area and close to the lake - perfect.

“Great location and a welcoming house with lots of added touches from the owners”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Our group of 6 adults and 2 children (plus 2 hounds) have just stayed in Westies for 5 nights over New Year. The house is spacious and comfortable with a large ensuite bedroom plus 3 good sized rooms. Downstairs is a large, well equipped, kitchen, dining room with enough room for 8 to eat and a comfortable living room. The interior is a little dated but very well presented and the house a very welcoming feel.

The biggest impression of our stay was made by the small touches from the owners. For example, we arrived to find 2 bottles of champagne and a box of chocolates laid out for our new year celebration. Also tea, coffee, washing up equipment and a dog welcome pack (containing treats, waste bags and a large towel) were ready for us upon arrival.

If you are in Keswick for climbing, walking or mountain biking then the lockable out-building will be ideal for storing kit. The out-building was part of the extension and contained the boiler so it was easy to dry stuff overnight. We stored 3 mountain bikes in there with no problems.

The house is located about 5 min walk from town. It's probably less than 5min to cycle to the start of the Latrigg trail and about a 15 min drive from the Trail Centre at Whinlatter.
