Perfect location close to the town centre but very quiet. The apartment has everything you could need especially the washer dryer. Bed really comfy and having your own parking space a real bonus. We have stayed here before and have booked again for later this year.

We have been coming to Arcadia for many years now and it certainly is the best location in Keswick, with good car parking. We enjoyed our stay this year but considering the premium price paid, the apartment is in need of some TLC and a kitchen appliance upgrade. The issues with the sink plugholes, cooker and tumble dryer have not been resolved sincRead moree our last stay in 2021. Nothing had changed in the apartment in two years, decor or appliance wise, which was surprising! Hide

This is the second time we have stayed in this accomodation, we like the closeness to the town centre and they fact you have a parking spot which can be few and far between in Keswick. We find the accomodation is well equipped with all your essentials and like the fact it's a large fridge/freezer.

Highly recommend Acadia for anyone looking to have an authentic Lakeland experience. Very close to the Keswick town center, but far enough for a very relaxed vibe. Absolutely perfect for a couple who want to stay 4 or more nights, we stayed 7 nights and it was perfect for our stay. I highly recommend renting a car if you don't have one, there is paRead morerking. Wi-Fi was also extremely fast and reliable if looking to do more of an extended remote work arrangement.
