    • “A delightful find. Excellent accommodation in a lovely country setting. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Good leisure facilities after a warm day especially the jacuzzi all included in the rental price. Only downside no shop on sight.”

    • “The layout and size of the accommodation was lovely. We were staying during a very cold snowy week and the place felt warm and comfy all the time. One issue was the very creaky floor and stair. There was hardly anywhere to stand that didn't creak, which in a new build isn't good. Also the doors didn't stay shut. Our 2 year old was able to get into everywhere because none of the door catches worked.”

    • “So very peaceful”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “All was fine with our stay apart from the fact that we were told we would need to hire a cot and high chair and pick them up from Penrith on our way! On being told that we decided to take our own only to find when we arrived that there was a high chair already in the kitchen and a foldaway cot in the cupboard down the stairs. Same applied to our holiday neighbours. Not exactly good communication and when you are travelling with so many other things that a toddler needs, could have done well without taking these items on the trip. The holiday village was excellent. About a mile off the main road and we did find our stay so very peaceful apart from the ducks who came to our door each morning to be fed. Our granddaughter loved that! We did not use the facilities as we had to baby sit in the evenings but from what we saw ie the pool, the play area etc were first class.”

    Mr Titford, Doncaster, October 2018

    • “The house was very nice located in a beautiful part of the lakes this was our first holiday with Sykes and to the lakes it certainly won’t be the last The propert itself was good although could do with some cosmetic care floors squeaky, sofa dated worn arms, as is the gas hob. Fantastic wild life kept us entertained especially my 3yr old granddaughter”

    Mrs Herron, Haddington, September 2018

    • “I think I have to commend the staff onsite for their care and friendliness. Only issue have been mentioned in other feedback no shop or internet but if you are aware of this then you go prepared.”

    Mr Burton, Seaham, August 2018
