“Perfect”
Reviewed April 14, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Everything about the apartment was perfect and situated in a brilliant location.
The apartment had everything and more, very comfortable beds. 2 bathrooms were a plus as we had a teenager with us, who also really enjoyed feeding the birds with the supplied food
Fantastic location close to pubs and restaurants meant no cooking for me

“Very comfortable, and conveniently placed.”
Reviewed March 24, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Have stayed in this property several times. It is great to return to after a day walking in the stunning northern Lakes, or closer to home in Keswick. There is a very good choice of walks, places to visit, things to do, and places to eat - many simply from the doorstep. There is a theatre and a cinema within easy walking distance - that doesn’t happen very often. Keswick is a lovely town, with fantastic independent shops, busy pubs, and a good market. What’s not to love about this place? Greta Bank is a perfect base.

“Perfect for that winter get away, lovely area, everything you need within walking distance”
Reviewed February 14, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Staying at Greta Bank was a lovely winter break. Lovely clean warm cosy apartment with everything you need. Location so perfect for everything, walks, shops, buses or just relaxing if weather turns bad, Overlooking snow topped Skiddaw was beautiful. Also the wild life on patio joining us at breakfast was a joy too.

Jut want to say thank you to the staff at Keswick Cottages, especially Rebecca. Always so pleasant to deal with and nothing too much trouble, taking time to make sure before and after our stay we were happy with everthing.

“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!
