“1st time for New Year in Keswick”
We always try to stay in Chaucer House apartments when visiting Keswick. On this occasion, all others were booked for new year. This proved a cosy apartment in which to shelter from the extreme wind and rain during the last week of 2013! The bedrooms are lovely and the double bed is really comfortable with views over the rooftops to hills beyond. We didn't make the most of the little reading room but could see it being more appealing on a sunny day. The photos of the apartment don't really suggest the amount of floor space that is under the pitch of the roof - not really an issue until our tall 6'2" friend visited! You do pay a slight premium for this apartment - maybe for the additional reading room as oppose to living space.

“Excellent location, fantastic apartment”
This two storey apartment was perfectly placed in Keswick. Less than a two minute walk would take you into the centre of Keswick. The apartment itself was clean, spacious and well maintained. An excellent experience

We had a fabulous stay at Chaucer House and are looking forward to returning next year. The location was quiet, but very near all the amenities e.g. Keswick, Theatre at the Lake, parks etc. The accommodation was first class and very clean and tidy. We picked up our keys as instructed by very friendly staff. Excellent.

“Everything you could want”
This duplex apartment is wonderful. It is only 2 mins walk from the center of Keswick with all it's lovely shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars and 5 mins from the lake. It has fantastic mountain views from every window, plus the advantage of a parking space. It is really well equipped inside, home from home. The only negative, which is why I gave it 4 starts instead of 5, is because the shower was blocked up the first day of using; it hadn't been cleared out from the previous occupants, plus inside the toilet bowl could have been cleaner. I'd definitely recommend this apartment.
“Great location shame about the cleanliness!”
The apartment is in a great location. Close to the centre but nice and quiet. It had some great features - good views, comfortable beds, great shower. It was comfortably furnished and had everything you needed. The only problem was that it wasn't clean. It was grubby. (The bedding was clean). Usual stuff, grill full of last week's bacon fat, floors not swept (rotting tomato behind the settee), last week's soap splashes (at best) on taps and mirror and bathroom, fridge a bit flakey and sticky in parts... The rental company did offer to get the cleaner back but who wants to stand there watching someone clean after they've complianed about them - awkward and not my idea of a holiday. For over £100 per night I had expected better. All that said, after we'd cleaned the place ourselves we enjoyed staying in Skiddaw View.
“Wonderful visit to Lake District”
We booked apartment after speaking to an agent from booking office. Advice given was very helpful in helping make best decision regarding location. Apartment was lovely and was perfectly located, minutes walk into heart of Keswick. Would definately stay here again. Lots of pubs, cafes and shops. Visited pencil museum and imagination centre on one rainy afternoon and kept us all occupied. Parking was good and useful if you wanted to have a sample of the many bars and cask ales!! Children enjoyed it and liked reading room in the apartment and even suggested we should have one at home.
Our stay did not start well as the boiler was not working when we arrived and the property was very cold. However, a plumber arrived within half an hour of us reporting the problem and took about an hour to fix it, which was fine. All the comments below should be taken in the context that Skiddaw View is described as 'luxurious' in the description on the Cottage Holiday Group website... All the top floor windows were very noisy and draughty when the weather conditions were windy (which was quite often during October!) and one window actually blew in when it was very windy on Sunday evening. Although the TV is perfectly serviceable, it is rather old and small. We were also disappointed that a property advertised as 'luxurious' did not have wi-fi (although to be fair, this is not advertised in the property description). We found the front bedroom to be very noisy due to regular bell chimes and noise from the street. It also has white blinds and no curtains, so becomes light as soon as dawn breaks. The decorative condition of the bathroom was rather shabby, especially when compared with the rest of the property. Finally, my wife also found it very frustrating that there were no mirrors in the bedrooms. The only mirror is in the downstairs hall and does not have a plug socket located near it. Our disappointment is therefore based on the issues above. This is a shame because the property is in an excellent location and could be a great property if these issues were resolved.
This is a superb property, ideally situated about one minute's walk from Keswick's Main Street. The parking space provided is essential due to the very busy surrrounding area. The apartment is spotlessly clean and finished to a high standard. There is also a lift to both floors of this duplex style apartment which was helpful with our young baby's buggy. Key collection is also a bonus as the office is a short walk from the apartment.
