“Parking issues”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
3
people found this review helpful

Well positioned in beautiful Keswick.
However there are a couple of issues. The first being the attic room. This is just one room with a dividing door. It has only on route of access, meaning that if there are 14 staying in the house that the couple staying in the far end of the attic have to walk past the other couple to go to the bathroom. The 7th couple have to stay on a very uncomfortable sofa bed, ok for one night maybe, but not a whole week.
Parking is a problem, not advertised accurately and we picked up a £25 parking fine!

Management Response

Hi thanks for your feedback..we are sorry that you had some problems. On our website - www.newlandshousekeswick.co.uk - for The Gables, it is clearly stated that the extra two bed spaces are on a sofa bed in the lounge in the attic and unfortunately you are the first guests to say that it is uncomfortable...we have since brought a 4 inch mattress topper for future guests. We also state that there is one parking space for a car at at the bottom of the garden next to The studio, plus plenty of on street parking down any of the streets off Penrith Rd which is opposite the house. We realise that you did book the property through Sally's Cottages who did not have the correct information on their site... we are now ensuring that they have the correct information so any confusion does not happen again. So to clarify the sleeping arrangements - The Gables sleeps 12/14 with The Studio at the bottom of the garden sleeping 2/3 people - which is why the board says 14-17 people. Once again we are sorry for any confusion and have asked Sally's Cottages to update there information.

“Absolutely superb place to stay in Keswick”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I stayed at The Gables with friends and what a wonderful time we all had.

The whole place is fabulous, very well thought out and the attention to detail is amazing.

It's very central to the shops, bars and restaurants in Keswick and of course the lake too.

Would thoroughly recommend The Gables.

“Fantastic House in a perfect location!”

We stayed at this fabulous property in May 2015. There were 12 of us in total including 4 children. The house is finished to a very high quality with absolutely everything you need in there. All the crockery is good quality and there is plenty of everything. All the rooms were a really good size too. The location in keswick is second to none, just a short stroll (200 meters) and you are in the centre!

“Lovely house & location”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We booked The Gables for a long weekend for a group of 9 adults, and found it was very well equipped, with plenty of room for us all - enough comfy seats in the lounge, big dining table, bathrooms, mugs, glasses, crockery etc. It was easy to walk to shops, hills, & pubs.
