‘Great location close to the centre of Keswick. The apartment was spotless with covid precautions evident . Private parking place was a bonus. The kitchen had everything you would need for a breakaway. Although only a one bedroom apartment the space throughout was great for the two of us . The view in the morning from the bedroom window across the river and cricket field to the mountains in the distance , was fantastic’
