    • “The cottage was so comfy and clean. Lots of utensils and washing up bits were provided as well as towels. Really didnt expect to see this much left for our use it was amazing. The log fire was an added bonus with plenty of extra logs in the shed. There is nothing bad i could possibly say about this place. Its location is fantastic to nearby attractions. Id love to stay again !.”

    Ms Johns, Ormskirk, October 2018

    • “Although we had good holiday there were a few niggles, the main one was the toilet seat falling off and having to wait hours for a repair (completed at 11.45). the contact we were given for reporting the repair at first did not know what we were talking about. not enough medium sized cooking cooking trays (perhaps it was geared up for a family not two people). i'm sure these things could easily be put right. however they all amounted to us decamping early. a shame as the weather and scenery were marvelous. we have used sykes cottages a number of times and this was the first time that we had any complaints, what made up for the inconvenience was the fact that the lets owners gave us a full refund for the days we didn't use without us even asking for a repayment! how many places will do that these days, the money was in my bank account within days. full marks. :- )”

    Mr Werendel, EXETER, June 2018

    • “This was a lovely ground floor apartment but unfortunately suffered from lack of basic maintenance. There was no local telephone number for problems or emergencies, only a neighbour who couldn't really help resulting in telephone calls to yourselves in Cheshire from mobiles with local signal being very poor. Further information available on request.”

    Mrs Leach, Ellesmere Port, May 2018

    • “The cottage was very cosy and perfect for the two of us, right in the centre of coniston but still quiet, and no need to use the car if you don’t want once you are there, there is plenty of nice pubs serving nice food and plenty of walks close by. It was just the job for a nice break.”

    Mr Mccormick, Manchester, March 2018

    • “Great location, great cottage, great holiday - all you could ask for for a Weekend break away.”

    Mr Egan, Ilkley, February 2018

    • “It was lovely. Suited us great. Everything you needed and the bonus of log burner. Which we used as it snowed. In the very centre of conniston and is a ground floor apartment. So noise is heard from above. You could hear slight noise from the Bistro next door. But we didn't find it intrusive. We went in February so it was very quiet which is just what we like I guess in the middle of summer it would be very noisy and wouldn't suit us be we are fussy. Only other thing was the bath and shower are fantastic if a little difficult to acress. Due to size of bathroom. But it worked for us. Overall cracking little cottage / apartment. Would recommend.”

    Mrs Shaw, BURY, February 2018

    • “Access to the property is on Hawshead Old Road, not as detailed on the access details.”

    Mr Waldron, Solihull, June 2017

    • “The extractor in bathroom went on too long”

    Mrs Robinson, Washington, May 2017

    • “1. The very limited toilet space was not known at time of booking. 2. The toilet had flush problems. We contacted Sykes who said that the owner was waiting for parts- big help to us”
