    • “No hesitations about recommending archers..”

    • “... except it might get too busy to re-book it again! Having stayed in a different cottage for a number of happy visits to Keswick, my first stay in archers was a reluctant change - but i was more than satisfied, and look forward to returning if i ever have the opportunity to work in the Lakes again. Comfortable, cosy, well-equipped. Great location for being central to shops, but easy access for walks, cycling etc...”

    • “Great situation for the Convention”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We are three friends who come to the convention each year. We rented this property because of its proximity to the main site for the convention, and because of its sofa bed, effectively making it a three-room apartment on a budget. We liked the sitting room and the well stocked kitchen, and the fact that there were two shower rooms/loos, one en-suite, and the other next to the back bedroom, but well sound-proofed. The only slight down side was the tendency for the sofa bed to go "boing" in the middle of the night! For a two bedroom let, we thought it was excellent, especially as it has a small utility room as well. Even with the convention, it was quiet, and parking was possible outside.”

    • “Comfortable, good location”

    • “Stayed here with my husband and some extended family. It is well laid out for more than one couple as bedrooms are at diffrent ends of the cottage and the property has two bathrooms. Good sized bedrooms and lounge. Kitchen is on the small side but adequate for our needs. Separate laundry with combined washer/drier which was very useful as we were on a walking holiday! Very good location easy walk in to the town and to supermarkets and 5-10 mins to the lake. Property is in good condition and was clean and tidy when we arrived.”

    • “Handy for the Convention centre”

    • “We recently stayed in this ground floor accommodation when we attended the Keswick Convention (which was great!) with a friend in a wheelchair. Although it is not advertised as suitable for the disabled, it met our needs - just!. The double bedroom with ensuite was roomy but the bathroom proved a bit of a challenge, being a bit on the small size, the wash basin is very small. The second double bedroom was down 3 steps, together with the other bathroom - it was again a bit small but the shower was good. The kitchen had all we needed in the way of equipment, and the dining room/lounge was comfortable. It was good to have a large size TV screen. There is access from the rear but no garden. Parking is on the street, always a bit of a problem in that area during the Keswick Convention. I must say that the rental agency were very quick to sort out a problem (with an overgrown hedge leading up to the front door) we discovered when we first arrived - it would have been difficult for our friend in the wheelchair. Thank you Lakeland Cottages!”

    • “Central location, very clean, comfortable and well equipped.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had a very pleasant stay in this appartment in Keswick. We were holidaying with in-laws and specifically selected this property because of the brochure advertisement stated there were two double en-suite rooms. Imagine our disappointment when it proved that only one room is actually en-suite. The other room has a separate private shower room. Very good shower and clean, but off the kitchen and utility area so not at all private. When we collected the key on Saturday morning it was just handed over without a word or any advice as to where to find the propery etc. or enjoy your stay. There was no welcome pack such as tea/coffee/milk, which we have found at other holiday cottage. However, that said the property is very clean, comfortable and centrally located, parking a bit of a issue as it was the very busy Jubilee weekend.”

    • “Comfortable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had originally booked for another holiday cottage but the heating and hot water were broken so we had a bit of trouble moving all of our luggage out again and on to archers. Our original cottage had a better location in Station Road so we were initially quite disappointed, especially as we realised that the property was not as clean as it should have been - there was a tacky feel to the lino in the kitchen, and some crumbs on the kitchen work surface. However, the agency probably had not had time to inspect the property before giving us the keys. Archers is not actually that far from the centre of town and is really a very comfortable cottage. It has a large living room with TV, two bedrooms (1 en suite), and a good size fully equipped kitchen. The en suite and the main bathrooms both had very good, powerful showers. There was easy internet access, and a good number of books and games none of which we needed as we were able to get out walking every day. I'd like to say we'd have no problem staying there again but I don't think we would be allowed to bring our dog. They waived the 'no dog' stipulation as otherwise we'd have been left with no accommodation. However, I'd be happy to recommend this property to anyone.”

    • “Easy to book through Sykes cottages. Reasonable price. Keswick is a good place to stay to see the rest of the Lake District.”

    Mrs Ramshaw, Peterborough, October 2018

    • “Cannot give full marks for accuracy of description because we were told we needed to take towels when they were provided. Glad that they were there because I had been feeling it was a bit mean not to have them included, for the price we were paying. Archers was fine for our needs: the ground floor en_suite bedroom proving ideal for our partially disabled guest. The house was comfortable and well equipped. We especially appreciated the fact that the central heating system had been pre programmed to come on after 6o'clock until 9.30 ish. It was lovely and warm. Thank you for all your provision.”

    • “Our first visit to the Lakes and very happy to have the combination of town and country, lakes and mountains.”
