Plus points: The views were fantastic! It is a very spacious apartment. Minus points: The apartment needs some serious renovation. Holiday time and no Christmas decorations at all. Kitchen equipped but the pots and pans are small( we were 5). No towels ( we were coming from abroad, bringing our own towels was difficult. Thank you Sally for providing them for us) There is nothing close by, you have to get down to Keswick for everything.

Hello Adrian, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. How wonderful to spend Christmas in the Lakes – there really is no better place to be. I concur Derwent View is a wonderfully spacious apartment - the views are exquisite! The location is perfect for escaping from the hustle and bustle for a while. Not all of our cottages provide decorations at Christmas and I would have been happy to confirm this ahead of your stay had you enquired. Towels are not provided at Derwent View and guests are advised in the accommodation summary to bring their own. However, I am pleased we were able to provide these for you. I will liaise with the owner in regards to the remainder of your feedback so that they can take this on. I hope you enjoyed your holiday in the beautiful Lake District and will plan a return visit in the future.

On our second stay what more is there to say! We found a formerly requested large tea pot which shows that the owners listen to suggestions.
Our only criticism is that the rain can spoil the view!

Hello Ann, Thank you for your lovely feedback. I'm thrilled you had another lovely stay at Derwent View. It's a gem of a cottage isn't it? I'm delighted the wonderful owners' supplied a large tea pot at your request. Here's to the next break in the Lakes - hope to see you again very soon!

Fantastic base for exploring local area. Really close to keswick but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. Beautiful apartment in beautiful house & grounds. Very well presented & had everything we needed. Lovely big rooms & cosy heaters. My one moan is the water pressure of the shower wasn’t good & having only a half shower panel made it quite cold (but we visited in October). Everything else was perfect & we’ll definitely return 🙂

Hi Amy, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. It's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? And how about those views?
I'm sorry to hear you had an issue with the water pressure, I'll make sure that's looked into.
I hope you can plan a return visit soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
