Gables cottage in very good location could do with having a better sign on building as only says the studio ,no onsite parking but free parking up the road which was ok but would be better if on site ,Studio well equipped maybe too well cupboards full of everything you could possibly need ,bed comfort ok ,shower good ,has underfloor heating only ,has no where to dry wet clothing ,or towels so studio more suited to people who are not serious hikers ,overall had good time would recommend the accomadation

Hi Karen, very many thanks for taking the time to leave a review following your stay at The Gables Studio! I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed your time in Keswick - it's such a beautiful part of the world, isn't it?! The owners have found that a sign saying "The Studio" works really well because there's a separate sign for The Gables, which is the bigger house just in front. There isn't any private parking for The Studio but luckily, there are lots of places just a stones thrown from The Studio that offer free and unrestricted parking. This is on the website already but I'll make sure it's extra clear, so nobody is caught out. I can confirm there is a tumble dryer in the kitchen, so guests do have somewhere to dry their clothes after a wet day. I'm really sorry if you weren't able to find that, it's just next to the sink. I hope we can welcome you back to The Lakes again soon - here's to more adventures!

Ideally located for centre of Keswick. Lovely little property but too small really, as the amount of usable space is limited. Fridge and freezer are inside kitchen cupboards but are not fixed, so tip forwards really easily and things fall out/catch your fingers against the units. Given all the statements on the website I expected it to be immaculate, but was disappointed with the cleanliness; cobwebs, junk in several kitchen drawers (old dog leads, tatty bits of card etc). Linen immaculate which was good. TV remote control had no working batteries. Only 1 toilet roll provided - suggest that this is added to the long list of things you have to provide yourself in this property.
Suited what I needed this weekend in terms of location, but really glad the weather was good and I did not need to spend too much time inside as it just didn't have the space.

Hi Tracey, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, the location couldn't be better could it? And the fab weather was the icing on the cake! I'm sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, I'll make sure I address it with the cleaner. I'll make sure all your other feedback is looked into too. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
