Fantastic location. Could not be better for pubs, shops, food etc. Great views from upstairs, well decorated and equipped.
Noisy front bedrooms even with windows closed.
Noisy hall with massive gap under the door. Must be really cold in the winter.
Curtains in front bedroom can only be closed by standing on the window ledge. Bit of an issue when there is a bus stop and street light outside the window.
Outdoor dining area sounds great but it's a crappy table and chairs in a scruffy backyard with no flowers or othe decoration.
Toiletries were minimal when we arrived and we had to complain to get them.
We were locked in the front bedroom on the first night because the latch stuck. Serious fire hazard. Noticed that several others in the house had similar problems. Needs sorting!
Good luck with boiler. We couldn't get it to do what was needed. Had to resort to manually switching it on and off.
No drying facilities was a problem - even in August we couldn't get out towels dry.
Kitchen table sounds great and looks like an old wooden table with metal legs in the pictures. What a disappointment, and the vintage chairs turn out to be tinny and uncomfortable.
Parking is an issue in Keswick with prices in the vicinity of the house charging £16 a day, the lack of parking here could cost 4 couples very dear! Make sure you buy the pass for parking.
Location is so good and we had a great time, despite poor weather. This place could be so good and the response to my complaints was quick and as effective as it could be. There shouldn't have been the need to complain though. At this price we expected better. Felt let down .
Well equipped and stylishly furnished throughout. Also very clean. However there were a few things which let it down.
The front door's draught excluder is pointless as there is a gap (you can actually see the outdoors) which lets in a huge draught making the house cold. The heating switches off late afternoon so the house is really cold in the evening once the draught has worked its way through the house, we could not work out how to override the heating system.
The house is on the main road into Keswick so lots of traffic noise. Also no parking on site and double yellow lines outside making off loading luggage impossible. There is one permit for the long stay car park down the road, this seems inadequate for a house sleeping 8 unless all arriving in a people carrier! We arrived in 2 cars and had to pay £12 day to use the long stay car park, thank goodness we weren't there for a week!
The fridge wasn't working, to be fair the agency were around straightaway with a small temporary one which was adequate for our needs but its a shame it was not fixed for our arrival.
I couldn't recommend 5 The Townhouses enough. Absolutely gorgeous property with plenty of space, we were a party of 6 adults and 2 dogs, great location with everything you could ask for. I can't wait to book our next stay.
I would definately recommend this house and would stay there again. It is a 2 minute walk from the centre of Keswick which is spot on. Pet friendly though still very clean and modern inside. A log burner in the living room which is always a bonus after a lake district walk in the pouring rain. We loved it and would definately stay there again.
We stayed here as a group of 7 adults and a dog. There was plenty of room for us all and the house was modern and comfortable. It was within very easy walking distance to the town and was perfect for our stay. The lack of parking wasn't a problem for us, but I could see with small children its a little inconvenient.
