    “This was my first time booking through Sykes Cottages and it's safe to say I would certainly book through here again in the future.”

    As for my specific apartment experience, the location couldn't have been better, it was in a fantastic area very close to local shops and restaurants. The facilities inside my apartment however were just okay. A review I saw about this apartment before I booked mentioned that a neighbour would have their television on loud until the early hours of the morning, this I thought wouldn't be an issue to me until I actually heard how loud it was to the point that I could work out what programme they ...

    As for my specific apartment experience, the location couldn't have been better, it was in a fantastic area very close to local shops and restaurants. The facilities inside my apartment however were just okay. A review I saw about this apartment before I booked mentioned that a neighbour would have their television on loud until the early hours of the morning, this I thought wouldn't be an issue to me until I actually heard how loud it was to the point that I could work out what programme they were watching and on what channel. I could also hear every move the people in the apartment above made which unfortunately also included their toilet movements. This could be an issue if you're a light sleeper, thankfully, I am not. I also must comment on how mild the temperature was in the apartment, the electric fire and radiator heaters in the hall and bathroom really didn't suffice much but thankfully there was a portable electric heater stored in the bedroom cupboard which I managed to make use of although even that only gave out a steady flow of lukewarm heat. I would certainly recommend for the heating to be looked into here as during this time of year it doesn't quite meet the standards that you would expect, even if it would be to just replace the portable heater to something that gives off a little more warmth. As for the shower, it didn't give off much power but was manageable. There were also signs of damp coming through on the bathroom ceiling. Negatives aside, for the amount I paid for this four-night stay, and for my first experience booking through Sykes Cottages, I would say it was worth the money I paid. Upon arrival the digital key box was easy to use, the apartment was very clean and welcoming with very clear instructions in the manual including a little personalised map of the area which was very useful. This was my first time visiting the lake district and the apartment really is in a fantastic location with satisfactory amenities. The television even had access to Netflix (not already logged in to an account of course) which was a nice surprise, I certainly made use of that on an evening. Everything is on your doorstep within just a couple of minutes walk. The people in the area are very friendly and conversational, even when out on a walk you will find people saying hello or good morning/afternoon. I would certainly stay here again (during warmer months) for sure.

    Thank you for your review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the location and apartment facilities. Maintenance have attended to the points you have mentioned surrounding the heating. We look forward to welcoming you back here again soon. Owner relations
