“Lovely apartment in an ideal location”
Reviewed January 6, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Warm and comfortable accommodation. Two roomy bedrooms and an ensuite shower room, also a lovely bathroom; crisp white bed linen and soft fluffy towels were much appreciated. The lounge has two comfortable settees and a dining table and chairs, the French windows open onto a small patio visited by various species of birds. Lovely walk to Derwentwater and Friars Crag takes 10-15 mins, town centre shops a short stroll from the accommodation. An ideal location.

“this is an ideal location and the decor and equipment couldn't be faulted.”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Very handy for shops and local transport. Secluded garden regularly visited by local wildlife. This is about our fourth stay and we even had a female pheasant and 4 chicks feeding on the garden wall. Very well equipped and comfortable property.

“Good quality accommodation and quiet despite its central location.”
Reviewed July 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We enjoyed this holiday immensely. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the two bathrooms were of high quality. It felt more like a cherished 2nd home than a normal holiday-let. Convenient parking and a 2 minute walk to Booths and the high street. As regular visitors to Keswick we'd be happy to return to Greta Bank in the future. As always, a lovely holiday and great service from Keswick Cottages - thank you!

“A Great Holiday”
Reviewed April 29, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We've used Keswick Cottages several times but this was our first time in Greta Bank and absolutely loved it. It was very clean, comfortable and warm with great facilities and the free WiFi was very useful. A fantastic location being so close to the shops and loads of walks on the doorstep. We had a great holiday and will definitely be back. Many thanks Keswick Cottages.

“Comfortable and clean”
Reviewed April 26, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have stayed in this development a number of times, but this was the first time in Greta Bank. Keswick Cottages always impress with their care, and this time was no exception. The property was comfortable, very well cleaned and maintained, and sufficiently spacious for 4, with great views to Skiddaw. Very convenient for Booths supermarket and the town.

“Best place ever”
Reviewed January 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

So well centered,just walks away from grocery store which also has a food court,bus's to all the Lake District towns,Keswick itself has all anyone could want on food and entertainment,plus the greatest walking trails right out your door. Thr Greta Bank was so comfortable,and it's rooms were beautiful and comfy,big bathrooms ,and the kitchen WOW ,so nice to have a dishwasher and washing machine,so nice after a long day of walking to be able not to have to find places to clean clothes,and of course you must feed the visiting ducks! We can't wait to go back. Great place.
