We enjoyed all aspects of the accommodation apart from the fact that there was only one proper shower. The one shower was excellent, but the queue in the morning was disappointing,.
The grounds were extensive and we enjoyed playing on the lawns. The abundance of TVs was a surprise.
We didn't really enjoy the walk into Keswick but Skiddaw was much better.

Our first stay here, weather was great apartment was very spacious and well equipped, but the showers in en-suite could be better and they need a screen or curtain. Nice gardens to wander around and a great location just far enough away from main road.

The fact that we've been to Somervell 8 times says it all really! Our four children say this is their favourite holiday destination. Nice and relaxing...very peaceful...well equipped kitchen...fantastically large garden that the children love complete with mini golf...clean and spacious. Hopefully we'll be back next year for visit number 9.

We have visited Somerville every year for the past 6 years and we have never been disappointed. The location is perfect for the young family with plenty of space for the children to run around. Close to all amenities but far enough away to feel as though you are in the depths of the Lake District. The accommodation is spacious and sleeps 6 comfortably and reasonably well furnished and equiped albeit the shower could do with being replaced.

Somervell is a large appartment in the building. It's airy and solid and well appointed. I would certainly return.
The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is that the picking up and returning the key arrangements are not good (a trip into nearby but busy Keswick - where there is nowhere easy and free to park is necessaary) Also, I think the agency should have ensured there was soap and perhaps shampoo in all the bathrooms, and washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets and detergent and washing up mops and brillo pads in the kitchen. We were warned towels were not provided - but I think they should be for the price.

Clean and tidy, well laid out.
Plenty of room and enough crockery etc to start a restaurant
Comfortable beds, both doubles with excellent views and nice en suites.
One mile walk to the nearest pub, but very pleasant if the weather obliges.

The apartment is in a very nice location and is very elegant - the WiFi was a very useful addition. We had everything we needed for a lovely Christmas holiday with three children (from toddler to teenage).
