"Excellent week again. Slate Knoll immaculate upon arrival. The best place we have stayed ever"
"Our 9th visit to Slate Knoll, thanks again for your warm, spotless and comfortable accommodation"
"Our 5th visit in 2 1/2 years. Says it all. Many thanks"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Slate Knoll. The apartment was very welcoming and cosy and it's the perfect location in central Keswick. No need for our car once we were back from a day on the fells. We'll be back!!
This property exceeded our expectations. Very clean, fresh and bright and overlooking the Main Street. Delicious fresh lemon cake and milk awaited us. We would recommend this accommodation to everyone.
