    “A fantastic house with everything you need in a perfect location in Cartmel.”


    This is our second time of staying at the White House, and actually love the house and what it has to offer both in the Winter but especially love it in the Summer when you get full use of its wonderful garden. Its also important as guests as we familiarise ourselves to the cottages, that from time to time we may encounter the odd issue that has not been previously flagged to the owner/management company or booking agent which on this occasion we did and they did their very best to resolve and make sure we were happy. Unfortunately for us, the heating was not working correctly upon arrival, however after a call to Sykes, within 2 hrs they had an engineer out to the house, which on a Friday evening is exceptional service. The Gardens are maintained beautifully and as a regular visitor to holiday cottages and especially to Cartmel, we often ask ourselves the question "Could we live in the house" and when the answer is an unquestionable YES then we know we will be back again. Thank you to the Sykes team and especially to Jason the owner for making sure we were happy.
