    • “The location is wonderful, it was a great stay. The only feedback I would give is that the cottage is described as having everything needed to support the time away, but we were only left with a few loo rolls and 2 nights worth of wood for the burner. Please be sure to leave more toilet roll for next visitors :) thank you”

    Mrs Conway, Birmingham, October 2018

    • “This cottage is a hidden away gem, fabulous location , very quiet and very very comfortable. Perfect for a get away from it all break. Plenty to do if you choose to or just relax with a good book and roaring fire.”

    Mrs Tonge, Bolton, October 2018

    • “Foresters cottage is a lovely comfortable place to is more like a home than a holiday cottage...well equipped full kitchen with plenty of crockery and utensils...all rooms comfortably furnished with high end accessories...we all loved being here a real home from home and very dog friendly with a great enclosed garden and lot's of lovely walks direct from the property.. Really hope we get to return very soon”

    Mrs Turner, Bury St. Edmunds, September 2018

    • “The cottage was exactly as advertised and was even better than we had expected. It was clean and comfortable and every detail was taken care of with ample information and equipment provided. The setting was fantastic with various forest walks available right from the front door, and was a good base for exploring other parts of the Southern Lakes. The local pub was closed more often than open but it was only a short drive to Hawkshead where there were plenty of pubs and restaurants. Overall a great holiday with our two grown up children and dog, and we would have no hesitation recommending this cottage to others.”

    Mr Parkhouse, Bognor Regis, August 2018

    • “We had an amazing holiday, the cottage was gorgeous and very clean. There was everything there that we needed and more. Would definitely recommend booking through Sykes.”

    Mrs Blair, Halifax, August 2018

    • “The location was ideal, we could go walking nearby with the dogs without having to drive all the time The cottage was very comfortable, plenty of space, and the dogs loved the large garden We enjoyed looking out and seeing loads of birds coming to feed at the feeders. We loved this cottage and have rebooked for next year, Highly recommended”

    Mrs Lynch, Sunderland, August 2018

    • “Accommodation was as advertised and Sykes Cottages were extremely helpful throughout the booking process and our subsequent queries. The cottage was comfortable and met expectations as well as proving a secure outside space for our family dog. Great walks on the doorstep, shops a short drive away. Would recommend that future customers are informed that the local roads are single track with passing places. Would recommend Sykes Cottages to family and friends and would not hesitate using again. Thank you to all :-)”

    Mrs Barraclough, Huddersfield, June 2018

Regional Information

HAWKSHEAD Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 miles. The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
