    “Overall we had an excellent holiday in Baker's Loft however, we have two comments to make.”

    The most important is that the information given by Sykes Cottages about car parking is inaccurate and misleading. There is no on-street parking and no parking permit is provided. This should be deleted from your listing. Secondly, although generally the equipment was excellent we were concerned that there were no table mats (only coasters) to protect the dining table. Also there were no serving spoons (although there were many soup and dessert spoons!)

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a designated parking space for the property, we apologise if the instructions were not clear - we have revisited them and made them more accurate. We have made a note of the lack of table mats and serving spoons and will make sure this is rectified. We are glad that you had an excellent holiday and hope that you will visit us again soon.

The property

Boasting a central position within the charming village of Grasmere, is this elegantly-presented, first-floor apartment, The Bakers Loft.

This stunning property has been designed to offer lovers of the outdoors a base in which to explore the beauty of the Lake District National Park.

After venturing up the external steps, enter into the compact, yet well-equipped kitchen boasting everything you could possibly need to cater for yourself, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.

Serve up dinner within the spacious sitting/dining room, where a formal table offers a great spot for everyone to gather to tuck in and toast to a wonderful holiday.

After dinner, sink into the sofa and tune into the TV to unwind after an action-packed day.

Retire for the evening to one of the two, well-presented bedrooms, each one boasting a bright and airy aura and good wardrobe storage to keep your holiday belongings.

Choose between a plush king-size bed and a twin bedroom with zip/link features, served by a sleek family bathroom, containing a shower over bath, basin and WC.

Take a leisurely stroll through the bustling village, where you will be delighted to find a superb selection of amenities, including a collection of interesting shops and tearooms, accompanied by takeaways, restaurants and bars.

Whilst stay here, be sure to pick up a sweet treat from the famous Grasmere Gingerbread shop and soak up the picturesque scenery from Grasmere Lake, one of the smallest lakes in the National Park.

Attractions which rest a short distance away from the property include the former home of the William Wordsworth, or travel slightly further afield to visit Wordsworth's rustic family home of Rydal Mount, where you will find displays of his work and portraits.

Day trips can be spent travelling to Ambleside, home to even more shops and eateries, as well as a breath-taking waterfall and the Ambleside Roman Fort, for a taste of the local history.

From here, you will find Lake Windermere, boasting a superb range of watersport opportunities, as well as the National Trust property of Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's quaint, rural farmhouse.

Keen walkers will be delighted with the walks here, including the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, Fairfield Peak and Helvellyn.

The Bakers Loft is a wonderful retreat to enjoy all year around.

About the location


Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family have been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century and Grasmere Lake, plus Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
