    “Missing a trick”

    As a trip advisor for years reviewing places all over the world, I am always firm but fair. I previously have always used Lakes Cottages, who I personally love, but on this occasion , thought I would give Sykes Cottages a go. Smithy cottage in Tirril is pleasant enough, not that central but handy for the pub the Queens Head, which has fabulous food, (booking recommended), also walks near too. ...

    As a trip advisor for years reviewing places all over the world, I am always firm but fair. I previously have always used Lakes Cottages, who I personally love, but on this occasion , thought I would give Sykes Cottages a go. Smithy cottage in Tirril is pleasant enough, not that central but handy for the pub the Queens Head, which has fabulous food, (booking recommended), also walks near too. The cottage it’s self, could be beautiful but it lacks cleaning and TLC, for example dust under beds and round chairs thick and cobwebs around the place. The showers don’t work that well , as the boiler needs replacing and the upstairs blue bathroom is tired, floor is in poor condition and wood needs staining. The other bedrooms are nice and warm, comfy double room. The hallway is un-inviting and tired, as is the side of the house, full of moss on the floor and weeds. The decking at the back is dangerous as it feels like a marshmallow when you walkk on it. No hanging baskets, no outdoor lighting, poor standard of garden furniture, no outdoor maintenance at all, even after a 12 week lock down. Conservatory is dirty inside and out needs power washing, and painting. The kitchen is ok, but tired in parts although a good supply of things like bin liners, toilet and kitchen rolls, cleaning products are in plenty, not sure they get used to be honest. Missing a trick this cottage and owners, could be so nice and achieve a higher rent. So would I use Sykes again, not sure they can deliver and lost trust I think . It should after a 12 week lock down of been immaculate throughout - a shame

About the location

POOLEY BRIDGE

Penrith 6 miles.

The picturesque village of Pooley Bridge sits on the northerly edge of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley came to be due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont, and the word Bridge was later added when a bridge, which is now 250 years old, was built over the river. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed. There are numerous walks with breathtaking views nearby, plus a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals fascinating Iron-Age remains, whilst the towns of Penrith and Keswick are within driving distance. Pooley Bridge is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
