We come to the Lake District every year and have stayed in many different apartments. This one was head and shoulders the best we have stayed in. It is very spacious with a large king room ensuite, a large twin room and a smaller twin at the rear of the property. The living room is huge with a compact but well equipped kitchen. The views are beautiful with Skiddaw to the front and Catbella to the rear. The whole apartment is decorated to a very high standard. It's ideal for a group of adults as it comfortably sleeps 6. It also has two parking spaces which is a real bonus, especially considering how close to town it is. There is a lovely shared garden with trampolines, a swing and slides which was great for us with a toddler.
The location just can't be beaten. You are literally steps away from the bottom of the Main Street. There is a little road noise, but nothing too disruptive and there is no noise from pubs or restaurants which was an issue with a previous town centre property we rented. Keswick is a fantastic base for anyone who wants to explore the lakes, the scenery is breath taking and it's full of wonderful shops, pubs and restaurants.
We would definitely recommend anyone to stay here and in fact we have already booked apartment 2 in the same building for next year!
Centre of Keswick - close to two supermarkets, i.e. within walking distance.
Not cheap but I'm a great believer in 'you get what you pay for' and this is wonderful. We enjoyed our two weeks here which came to an end much to early (always a good sign)
We will be back
We took a long weekend booking with a group of friends some in apartment 3, some in apartment 2, above and below each other which is ideal for a large party. I've stopped at Bridge House properties before and knew what to expect but others who hadn't visited were mightily impressed. The apartments are spacious and well equipped and you have the town on your doorstep, what's not to like. Keswick is one of the finest Lake District towns and there are numerous walks you can do from Keswick without needing the car, which is safely tucked away in the courtyard parking. Try Skiddaw, Latrigg, Cat Bells or Walla Crag and then go for a pint in the Dog and Gun and finish off with half a Cow Pie in the George, word of warning though don't be tempted by the full Pie!
Have stayed in both apartment 2 and 3. Both furnished to the same very high standard. Home from home on the quiet end of the main street, just a few minutes walk from the hive of activity which is the center of Keswick. Both apartments have two allocated off-road parking slots. Freeview Tv in lounge and bedrooms. Wifi is available. An excellent base for exploring the Lakes, and somewhere very pleasant to return to each evening. Would recommend Bridge House to anyone, having stayed here for three very enjoyable holidays.
