    • “Comfortable cottage in the centre of Grasmere, a bit of “wet dog” odour in the Living Room but other than that we had no problems. Good quality furniture and bedding but a TV in the Living Room would be preferable than the second floor bedroom, The oven and hob require a deep clean or replacement. The supply of fuel for the open fire was appreciated and plentiful. One potential big problem for clients is the size of the garage/parking space, we used a VW Polo and found we could only open one door inside the garage, anyone with a car much larger will have a problem.”

    • “Lovely cottage and very well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.”

    • “Blind or curtains needed in lounge window because of draughts. No TV set in lounge. Heating needs to be on when tenants arrive, especially when the cottage hasn't been occupied the previous week. It took 2days to get the cottage warm.”

    • “I was not very happy at the time of booking the reservation with Sykes which I initially done on line - then within 24hrs ( in fact was the same day ) I had to phoned back as I had booked the wrong week a misunderstanding within the family - instead of the 8th Sept, I booked the 15th Sept . Due to this error I found that I had to pay a further £100.00 for that week which I thought was a bit steep then to be told that I had to pay a further £30.00 administration fee which I could not believe but unable to cancel the reservation I had to be penalised by paying the £130.00. Surely by pressing a few keys on a computer and changing the week does not cost £30.00 plus the possible cut you get from the £100.00 . So you can understand by making a small error it became a VERY expensive holiday. As far as 1 Field Foot Cottage we was pleasantly pleased the way the cottage had been renovated and set out and with many nice ideas and nicely situated in Grasmere. Things which I would like to mention for further reservations are:-1/ Why situate the TV in the bedroom - ok I was able to find the fittings etc.in the lounge and find suitable furniture to mount it on but thinking if somebody was not able to do this, who would want to sit on the second floor watching TV all night. 2/ We as a family with the dog always have our meals within the cottages we stay at but my wife was rather disgusted at the state of the oven - it certainly could do with a "good" clean (that's inside) OR a replacement. 3/ Finally I would be a bit concerned with the heating during the winter months - with our visit it was JUST passable with the radiators just getting warm ( not hot) enough and some extra clothing . I know its a lovely old building and you can't get away from the problem of drafts from doors and windows I do understand. 4/ Plus my wife has just mentioned that she would have liked better lighting in the kitchen. Thou I have mention these points we generally liked the reservation as it had many good points which shouldn't be looked over.”
