    • ““This is a lovely cottage placed right in the very heart of Grasmere.” The owner has renovated Poppy's Cottage to the highest spec,..there is everything you could possibly need and then some. Tastefully decorated throughout and having the benefit of 2 bathrooms ( a large family with deep roll top bath and an en suite). The cottage is very comfortable and has only just been renovated and recently put on the holiday market with Sykes Cottages, so is all shiny and new and far superior to some cottages we have experienced. The TV is also a proper 4k large unit, so we got our evening 'strictly takes 2' fix with Zoe in style. We also had pretty good weather too, not bad for October!. The annex houses the washer/dryer and a thoughtfully placed panel heater and hooks are provided to dry your wet walking gear. There are numerous great walks right from the door and we barely used the car all week....parking was no issue due to the parking permit allowing us to park the car 24/7 in a nearby car park about 100 yards away, you are allowed to unload right outside the door too which is useful. We turned up on the first Friday of the month which is market day, but the stall holders helped us gain access and then we had some nice produce to buy right on the doorstep!. There are some pretty good places to eat in the village, a surprise to us was Tweedies bar and restaurant which served up some lovely grub at a reasonable price. Sykes Cottages who handle this property were superb from start to finish, with very helpful and friendly staff making this a lovely holiday experience. We would highly recommend both Sykes and this super duper Cottage.”

    • “We have just come back from a week in this beautiful cottage. The cottage is beautifully recently refurbished to the highest degree. Everything you need is on hand. Grasmere is a lovely little village with many coffee shops & restauants to choose from. You can park outside for an hour off load. We have stayed in many cottages over the years, but this has to be the best. A stunning little gem in Grasmere. We will be back.”

    • “Great location, beautiful cottage with great home comforts. Only 2 minor negatives. Terrible smell in en suite bathroom which we could not get rid of so we didnt use it. And the radiator would not turn down so was unbearably hot. Also, the car park permit system is not ideal. we came from the north and late on so going to Windermere to collect it was not on our agenda. And we would have had to return it on the last day. A real faff. We got round it being in Grasmere at Christmas there was plenty of parking. There needs to be a better system for it. Otherwise a great holiday will probably return again. Thankyou”

    • “Ideal property in a prefect location!”

    Mrs Thomson, Holmfirth, November 2018

    • “Beautifully presented cottage in a central location on the green in the village. Exceptionally clean with all the amenities required for any form of holiday. A lovely location with great cafes and restaurants close by, we would highly recommend this property and would gladly book it again.”

    Mr Shepherd, Darlington, November 2018

    • “Poppy’s Cottage is everything we wanted in a holiday home and more. We instantly felt relaxed and at a home away from home. There was only 2 of us staying in the cottage but it felt plenty big enough for more people. The location in Grasmere was perfect. We hardly used our car throughout the whole week because we could walk to everything. It was a beautiful week and we look forward to returning next year.”

    Mrs Higson, Scunthorpe, November 2018

    • “The cottage was beautiful, comfy and above all clean!! The attention to detail was outstanding as was the decor and furnishings. We will definitely be back at Poppys Cottage.”

    • “We absolutely loved Poppy's Cottage.The location was fantastic. We didn't have to use the car all week as there are so many wonderful walks from Grasmere. The cottage is beautiful. It is so well coordinated with so much attention to detail. We felt extremely comfortable here we will definitely be back!”

    Mrs Constantine, Whitley Bay, July 2018

    • “Poppys is beautifully equipped and maintained. The location is great within walking distance of many lovely places, good access on public transport (I recommend the 599 open bus on a sunny day!) and with a car, most of the Lake District is accessible within an hour. The arrangement with the local car-park, the late night Co-op and Lucias made the stay all the more pleasurable. There are at least a dozen great places to eat within walking distance of Poppys and we tried most of them. And apart from the gingerbread habit we picked up, it was fantastic.”

    Mr Eves, LANCASHIRE, July 2018

    • “Absolutely lovely cottage in a prime location in Grasmere. One of the best holiday cottages I've ever stayed in, very cosy and an excellent standard throughout, didn't want to leave. Another brilliant holiday with Sykes Cottages”

    Mrs Appleton, Chester, July 2018

    • “Poppy's cottage is newly refurbished and it is absolutely charming! They really did it right - the attention to detail is stunning. Every need has been taken care of from laundry detergent to cookies and tea to ensuite bathrooms. The combination of history and modern conveniences is exactly what I was looking for. I booked late and couldn't believe my luck in finding this wonderful cottage. I had been combing through MANY pictures when I found Poppy's Cottage. It turns out that it had only just come on the market so I just lucked out. This cottage will book up. Upon arrival, I found pamphlets, brochures and maps to help me plan my trip, next to the tea and cookies. The owners were perfect hosts and Sykes Cottage personnel were very helpful. I could not have asked for anything better. The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and perfectly located in the center of town. I was so happy to wake up and come home each day to spend time in this beautiful cottage. I came all the way to the Lake District from California, USA. My trip was everything I had hoped for and more (and I'm fussy). Thank you to Jo and Andrew for making one of my bucket list trips a dream come true.”

    Ms Hinshaw, Pacific Palisades, June 2018

    • “Poppy Cottage is a 'little piece of paradise' in a beautiful Lakeland village. It is very well appointed and extremely comfortable with a lovely homely and relaxing atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. The only disappointing aspect to our stay; we had to leave!!!”

    Mr Sheridan, Sutton Coldfield, June 2018

    • “Perfect location in centre of village for walking out to hills or around Grasmere. Quality fittings and all home comforts. Rear private garden lovely for sitting out.”
