“Great location, close to amenities making it great for walkers or non walkers!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This was a great house, had everything we could need. There were 7 in our party but we had plenty of space and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we could need. Accommodation was lovely and clean and love the crisp white bedding and towels!! Thank you for a lovely home from home break!

“Great property in a fantastic location would highly recommend”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We travelled with friends and 3 children under 9 over New Year. The house was immaculate and the kitchen was stocked with every utensil, pot and pan you could ever wish for. The location was fantastic just a couple of minutes walk into the centre of Keswick. My only gripes and they are minor are that parking was a bit of an issue as it was a very busy time, but after new years day it was not a problem. The bathrooms and bedrooms were great with loads of drawers, wardobes and hangers etc, however both the showers could not be used at the same time, which meant doing shifts in the morning, which might be an issue if there were 8 adults in the property. Also no, you forget how much you use it when it's not around! I would recommend this property and we would go back again.

“well appointed”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

spacious, warm and cosy, enough room for the six of us around the massive dining table, everything in good condition, nice fluffy towels.
no washing machine, which would of been a bonus although a launderette along the street

“Great Holiday Home!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The house was decorated really nicely, well equipped & very clean. The rooms are all spacious with a good sized dining table... could have done with another table cloth as no washing machine. Very comfortable & enjoyable stay with the house being well located for walking into Keswick & exploring the countryside around. Lots of steps which might make it hard work with toddlers.

“Perfect for a group of friends and minutes walk from town and a host of pubs”
Reviewed July 16, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We came to the Lake District to climb Scafell Pike and chosse to stay at Sefton House due to its proximity to the start point. As well as being a great base for walkers, it is minutes walk from the town centre with a host of pubs, restaurants and other ameities. The very beautiful Derwent Water is also on your doorstep and well worth a visit.

The house itself is lovely, clean and bright and well stocked with everthing you would need. It's a perfect place for a group of friends or a large family.

“Comfortable and spacious house in a great location”
Reviewed April 16, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Sefton House is a nicely presented spacious three storey house very close to the centre of Keswick. There were two late opening convenience stores within a couple of minutes walk, and Booths is a great supermarket for main shopping about 10 minutes away. Bedrooms were all nicely decorated, beds were firm but comfortable. Nice big table in the dining room, and a well appointed kitchen stocked with a good range of utensils, only things lacking were a really big saucepan, and a decent sharp knife.
The main let down of the house is the TV in the lounge, it's really small, and positioned ridiculously high up on the wall. No WiFi was a bit of a nuisance too.
Noticed some guests had complained about the lack of a washing machine, however there is a dishwasher which we found more useful. If you really need to wash clothes there is a launderette in the same street.
There were a few small maintenance jobs we sorted which should have been picked up by the agents - blown bulb in floor lamp in living room, no batteries in DVD remote, kitchen clock not working, kitchen light diffuser not fitted.
However, it was a great base for a holiday in the Lakes and we would be happy to rent again.
