    • “Snug apartment but has everything you need and good facilities in kitchen area. Please note that there is a hairdryer, although not mentioned in inventory, so I unnecessarily brought one with me! Convenient location with bistro next door, 3 pubs and other eating places. Coniston is smallish village, but perfectly formed and perfect for location.”

    Mrs Collier, Ongar, September 2018

    • “Slight problem at the start, swiftly dealt with by your staff. Accommodation up to our high expectations.”

    Mr Capewell, Stafford, July 2018

    • “The flat was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay at the flat. Very clean and nicely located for the village. Comfortable bed and all essential amenities. Will be pleased to stay there again. Sykes emails and instructions were clear and the app was useful. The only issues were that we couldn't figure out how to use the oven/grill or the washing machine and the instructions were not there or didn't help. The CO alarm went off because of low batteries but that's understandable and something that happened by chance.”

    Mr Haider, London, June 2018

    • “I arrived on the Friday morning, collected the keys and went upstairs, my first impression after opening the day was, wow this is lovely, the flat was very clean and tidy and had absolutely everything i needed, one nice touch was, even though it sleeps only two, it had enough plates etc for a couple of guests, having a washer drier was useful as being in the Lake District, the weather is unpredictable,its situated close to every thing, food shops, pubs etc,very quiet and peaceful even being on the road side, only thing I would suggest would be maybe update to a blueray player, but it wasn't much of a problem, I have recommended it to family members and will do to friends, i will definitely be back in the future, lots of good walking right on the doorstep, hardly using my car”

    Mr Farish, Wigton, April 2018

    • “Nice cottage, good location, fairly small but fine for a week. It would be good to include a map to the bike store as difficult to find.”

    Mr Gould, Dunblane, September 2017

    • “Although it was called Bluebird Loft and we should have realised, but it was a but of a struggle initially with luggage up the 29 stairs. Possibly this should be included in description for people with poor mobility or health issues”

    Mrs Donald, Newton Aycliffe, June 2017

    • “The apartment was really well appointed, whilst it was small, it had everything you needed. We didn't expect it but the only thing lacking was a little outside space like a balcony, that's the only thing that would prevent us rebooking this particular property but you really couldn't fault it in any other way.”

    Mr Gardiner, June 2018
