    “The Village is easy to access and a good spot for exploring the Lakes.”

    The Cottage has a lovely lounge and kitchen area. We loved the open fire and comfortable sofa and chairs. A perfect place to relax in the evenings. The kitchen is well equipped and we found all the info and maps really useful.

    The Cottage has a lovely lounge and kitchen area. We loved the open fire and comfortable sofa and chairs. A perfect place to relax in the evenings. The kitchen is well equipped and we found all the info and maps really useful. However, the Sykes listing should make it clearer that there is no washing machine, that the on road parking is not outside the cottage and the cottage is located on a road with consistent traffic (fine for me but not for light sleepers like my husband). In terms of the cottage, it could be improved with better quality towels/bedding, providing a dish brush or dish sponge (we bought one to leave in the cottage), ensuring the lights/lamps downstairs work (many didn’t) and providing clear recycling instructions on the bins as it was impossible to know what could go in each of the different bins. I feel bad listing the complaints as the owners obviously love their cottage and we did have a good stay but there are small things that could be easily improved for a better experience and Sykes should relook at the listing as it is hard to understand a 4 star Sykes rating when there is no washing machine, a busy road, no garden and limited parking.

    - Mrs Mcewen, August 2021

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review and for your positive comments about the cottage. I am sorry that somethings did not meet your expectations and I will try to answer these. The information describing the cottage does not list a washing machine or garden being available. However, as we accept dogs as guests, some visitors may assume there is a garden. I will discuss this with Sykes and request that the information clearly specifies there is no garden. The on road parking is variable, there are times when you may be luckier than others! However, it is possible to safely load and unload at the door prior to parking. We advise this in our information. Regarding heavy traffic noise at night, this can occur if there is an incident on the M6 as traffic can be diverted through Burton. This is unusual and beyond our control. The bedding is constantly under review and replaced as required. Present bedding is about 18 months old, but only used minimally last year. Duvets and most of the pillows were new since May 2021. Towels were purchased about 2 years ago but, again, have had minimal use. We prefer not to supply dish wash brushes as they soon become worn and stained. We supply fresh dishcloths, scourers, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets. Thankyou for donating the dish brush. Light bulbs are always a problem and can go at any time! It is useful for our caretaking team, that a note is left so they can rectify it during their servicing. On this occasion we have found that the main light in the twin room was broken and this has now been repaired. The bedside light in the main room was not plugged in for some reason. We do supply spare bulbs. Our dustbin is in the rear yard with ’Tyee’ written on it. Sadly, at present, we cannot offer recycling and request that guests take their recycling home with them. This is something we will be looking into with SLDC. We do try to respond to customer feed back if it is possible and appropriate. Owner relations

The property

Tyee Cottage is a charming end-of-terrace cottage situated in the peaceful Cumbrian village of Burton-in-Kendal.

With easy access to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, this inviting retreat makes a great touring base for families looking to escape everyday life.

Internally, the property offers a reverse level layout, with the bedrooms downstairs and an open-plan living area upstairs.

Keep the chef of the group company whilst the learn the ins and outs of the kitchen, appointed with all the essentials for a short break, including an electric oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge.

After a filling feast, take a seat on the sofa and tune into your favourite TV shows.

Choose from the double or twin bedded to catch your rest, furnished in neutral hues and offering storage space for your personal items, while the bathroom is presented to a good standard with a bath and shower over, so you can choose how to prepare for the day.

Just a short walk away lies a convenience store where you can gather the ingredients for home-cooking, or if you would prefer to eat out then there is a village pub and a selection of eateries within the surrounding villages.

Walking and cycling can be enjoyed from the door, explore Farleton Knott where you can traverse over the dramatic limestone pavements and take in uninterrupted views to the lakes and Morecambe Bay estuary as well as Warton Crag and Arnside Knott closer to hand.

There are also stunning walks in Arnside and Silverdale, taking you along the coastline in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is a short drive away and in Silverdale there is the RSPB reserve Leighton Moss.

Kendal is a short drive away with both Levens Hall and its wonderful gardens and the National Trust's Sizergh Castle close by.

Windermere and Ambleside are further afield in the heart of the Lake District and provide an excellent afternoon of exploring.

Tyee Cottage is a getaway for taking in this stunning area, whatever time of year.

About the location

BURTON-IN-KENDAL

Kirkby Lonsdale 7 miles; Kendal 12 miles.

A small, traditional Cumbrian village set in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring Southern Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and the peaceful Forest of Bowland. The village has a Post Office/general store, a butcher and a pub that serves good food. It lies 7 miles from the lovely old market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, and 12 miles from Kendal, the gateway to the Lake District. There is easy access to many areas of interest, with the historic city of Lancaster and the seaside resorts of Morecambe and Blackpool all within easy reach. The acclaimed RSPB wildfowl reserve of Leighton Moss is only 4 miles away, while Morecambe Bay is also famous for birdwatching. Other locations well worth a visit are the villages of Silverdale and Arnside (overlooking the beautiful Kent Estuary), Ingleton, Settle and Clapham. Levens Hall (famous topiary) and medieval Sizergh Castle with a beautiful garden are nearby. Good pubs and restaurants are also abound in the area. There is plenty of good walking nearby, and golf, fishing and riding are all available locally.
