    • “Found the kitchen to be very well equipped and the place comfy. The disappointment really was 10am depart. Made the last morning a bit hectic particularly with young children to get sorted. Just an extra hour would have been great. That would have given us time to reflect on the good time we had spent together. As it was we all just departed, shame really.”

    Mr Thursby, November 2018

    • “Fabulous house - so comfortable and welcoming. All the "quirks" you would expect to find in an old farmhouse. The welcome pack of drinks sachets, jams etc was a lovely touch. The garden is beautiful, lovely to sit out in the sunshine. The rooms and beds were very comfortable, accommodating us all easily. Very clean and well looked after. Parking for 3 plus cars was very easy on the gravel driveway. Kitchen was well equipped, with photos of where everything went on the inside of the cupboard doors. Good location for the South Lakes attractions. (We did the Haverthwaite railway, South Lakes Zoo, visited friends in Ulverston, did the Fell Foot Parkrun on the Saturday morning). Plenty of information in the house about where to go and what to see. Can't find any faults at all. Didn't want to go home - absolutely loved this house!”

    Mrs Laws, Blyth, July 2018

    • “Everything was lovely. The cottage was very clean and had plenty of plates, dishes, cutlery etc. The garden was beautiful and there was plenty of space and seating for 8 of us. The only issue was that the bathroom door upstairs was very stiff and difficult to open. Two of us got stuck in there and had to be 'rescued'. It just needs a bit of attention to the door. Also we couldn't get the key safe to lock on the day we left. Apart from that I would highly recommend both yourselves and the cottage”

    Mrs Parslow, Shrewsbury, May 2018

    • “Whole weekend met our expectations. Not just the cottage and it’s facilities, but the local area. Even the weather remained good, despite heavy rainfall on our way to the cottage. Excellent all round.”

    Mr Oakes, Nuneaton, April 2018

    • “A lovely comfortable house in a beautiful quiet area.”

    Mrs Rose, Newark, March 2018

    • “We booked the holiday for 3 nights. We arrived there was no heating it was 13.5 degrees. There was no hot water. There were only half rolls and only soap in one bathroom. The washing machine had previous rental underwear! We moved the settee and there were dead flies and very dusty the same was true in the bedrooms. I found sweet wrappers in one bedroom. The single bed was unstable and we had to put a pan underneath to secure it. I contacted the owner and said I would clean the property. It was awful weather and we had to dry our clothes hanging them from ceiling in the kitchen with the oven full on. We did not want to publicise our disappointment and contacted Sykes Cottages on our return. Despite a formal complaint raised they did not deal with our concerns, in fact suggested we were not telling the truth. When asked if they had discussed our concern with the owner merely suggested they were the management company. We rent properties each year and have never experienced such poor customer service.”

    Mrs Garcia, Guisborough, June 2018

Regional Information

NEWBY BRIDGE Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles. The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. The famous Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest working standard gauge steam railways, runs between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge. Visit the Lakeside Hotels and enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or enjoy the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats, bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, plus 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, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.
