Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Somervell is a characterful apartment situated in the semi rural village of Applethwaite, stunning views can be admired from the lounge and bedrooms.

My brother won this in a raffle, we were so excited, the pictures and reviews looked amazing. What a shame it was so short lived. The smell of damp as you entered the front door was so pungent, I needed to take my inhlaer. When we got to the first floor, at first glance it looked ok but the carpets...

We stayed here as a family over October half term week. We arrived late on a Sunday afternoon to a freezing cold house, and discovered the boiler fault light was flashing.

We stayed in Somervell in July, and had the advantage of some of the best weather that is possible in the Lakes. Our group consisted of me, my wife, my son and his wife, and their two children. The property was the perfect size for us all with 3 bedrooms (2 ensuite) and a further bathroom. The large living room...
