“Nice, spacious, comfortable house in convenient location.”
Reviewed February 19, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

My family (3 kids, parents, grandparents and dog) stayed here over the Feb half term. We found Catbells to be in a great location as we wanted to be in walking distance of restaurants, cosy pubs but within close proximity to the lake and good walks. Despite it being half term, we didn't have a problem with parking our cars either. The house is clean and spacious and we didn't feel to be living on top of each other plus our children loved that there was a playstation in their bedroom! We spent cosy evenings in front of the logburner before retiring to very comfy beds which was great after a tiring day on the hills and mountains. We found the kitchen to be well-equipped when we cooked meals although if I had to be picky, it could do with a couple of sharper knives for prepping veg!
We booked Catbells direct with the owner which was really easy as he was very friendly, flexible and kept in touch in the run up to our arrival, not to mention answering my many questions about the area and activities. We'd definitely stay here again.

Liked best: Proximity to restaurants, pubs and walks. Good size house and cosy log fire. Pet friendly.
Liked least: More lamps downstairs would help make the lounge cosier if not lighting the fire. But that's just nit-picking!

“Great place, relaxing and well-equipped”
Reviewed February 14, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Catbells. It's much more than just a holiday cottage as the owner has made great efforts with the decoration and the furniture. There are nice touches everywhere. It's really well situated with the centre of Keswick literally just a minute away, and it was great to be able to bring our dog. The beds were really comfortable and the bathrooms clean and welcoming. And the free wi-fi was a great bonus. I have stayed in Keswick many times and this property is my number one, looking forward to our next trip!

Management Response
Nov 11, 2011
Thank you for your recent review on Catbells.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay in Catbells and felt the need to post a negative review. A complaint was received on your arrival regarding a cleaning issue with one of the bedrooms. This was dealt with promptly and compensation was given.

The decor and colour scheme throughout the property is modern and sophisticated. It has a designer feel with many quirky touches. Unfortunately we cannot cater for everyone's taste. Pictures of the property and dining area are clearly shown on the web site.

We also provide instructions in the property for the central heating. These are clearly displayed in the kitchen area.

We hope those reading this can see that this review is an exception to all those who have enjoyed their stay in this property.
