    • “Great Location lovely house”

    • “Great Location a stones throw from shops, bars and restaurants. Spacious accommodation, large bedrooms, plenty of space for large groups. 2 bathrooms so no queues in the morning. Our group consisted of 3 generations including teenagers and a dog, wi-ifi was excellent which was essential. Parking was a bit hit and miss even with permits but there are other options open to you. Enjoyed great weather so had some lovely walks, would recommend this house as a great base to see the Lakes.”

    • “Weekend stay for 4 couples, arriving an a wet and miserable Friday afternoon to a warm and cosy cottage kicked our weekend off to a great start. The cottage is in a great location, within walking distance to the town centre and a 20 minutes walk to Bowness. The cottage had practically everything you would need. Lots of crockery, cutlery and glassware for more than 8 and the kitchen also had essentials that you forget like tea towels, salt, pepper, foil as well as coffee, tea, biscuits etc. The beds were comfy and warm,wifi was good and lots of extras like a Bluetooth speaker, charging cables, books and DVDs. We found the cottage to be spotless and there were two parking permits that we used, parking up two of our cars outside and the other one round the corner on the road with free parking. We couldn't use the garden as it didn't stop raining but the weather, although annoying didn't stop us enjoying ourselves. Had a thoroughly brilliant time and was reluctant to leave. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a spacious, well equipped cottage in a superb location.”

    • “Wonderful Stay”

    • “I wasn't really looking forward to coming here, I thought it was overpriced and wasn't sure of its location due to it being booked by another family member. We were tired after long hard hours at work and it seemed a chore to drive so far. My wife and I arrived (last in our party) and although parking was a challenge we managed to stop outside the house to unload. We weren't disappointed when we went in. The house is on 4 levels and beautifully decorated. When the rain eased off we became aware of its perfect location with the town a mere few minutes walk. The house was warm with both central heating and under floor heating (which we didn't really master), the kitchen more than adequate and we have Sky and wifi, a real home from home. We were able to cater easily for our larger group and the sitting room was the hub for us to chill and have a laugh together. There were 4 couples so the price for each couple was no more than a hotel room, in fact for the time of year it was probably cheaper. Great value and location if you are coming as a larger party :) After our initial trepidation we had a brilliant time in a brilliant location with brilliant accommodation.....and of course brilliant company....family”

    • “We all had a fantastic half term holiday in the property. There were a few issues with the TV while we were there, Sykes were brilliant and very helpful in getting it replaced. There are lots of stairs! A really lovely location, Windermere has some lovely pubs and cafes and only 5 minutes drive to Bowness. The kids loved having a separate living room to us and the Grandparents too.”

    Mrs Collins, Nottingham, October 2018

    • “Amazing property, would deifinately stay again. Well presented inside and out. Nice little refreshments made available which was a nice touch. Great location.”

    Miss Walsh, Bolton, May 2018

    • “Overall a nice place to stay with plenty of room for all the family. There were a few things that I mentioned to the lady in the Windermere office. The one thing that was particularly bad was the strong smell of urine at the bottom of the basement stairs.”

    Mrs Fitzpatrick, Bolton, April 2018

    • “The House was absolutely beautiful! It was clear that a lot of time had been spent making the house feel like home. The facilities were great and it was in a great location. Would definitely recommend and we can’t wait to stay again.”

    Mrs Dewhurst-killeen, Longridge, March 2018

    • “This house is really lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. The facilities are fab and there are enough bathrooms for the amount of people staying. The Kitchen/diner is really nice and in the basement, great for family meals. The house is spotless and and there is everything you need, we arrived to a basket with different jams etc. Its ideally situated and a nice walk into the centre. The only drawback is the bedrooms were quite cold at night but the weather was bad when we were there so this was definitely a factor, the heating was on all the time we were there. I would not hesitate in recommending this house to other people and would definitely stay here again. Thanks for making our stay really comfortable.”

    Mrs Meadows, WIGAN, March 2018

    • “Instructions for key acces, car park passes and general details of the property were excellent. The property exceeded expectations, was very clean , extremely comfy, stylish and had all that we needed .”

    Mr Burgess, Crewe, March 2018

    • “I booked the house for my birthday celebration with 8 people, late 20s to early 30s. The house lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Two living rooms, plenty of bathrooms, nice beds and a good kitchen / dining area gave us lots of options for socialising and general lounging about. It was warm, comfy and bang in the middle of a town with shops, restaurants and cosy pubs. The Albert, 5 minutes walk from the boat tours, is excellent for food, beer and service. Oh, yeah, there's also a big old pretty lake nearby. There are permits for 2 cars, but we managed fine on nearby roads / carparks for our extra car. We had a problem with the parking permits when we arrived, completely beyond the control of the owners / Sykes. The Sykes office went out of their way to fix the problem, and as their office is only 2 minutes walk from the house, it was easily solved. Excellent customer service. The oven is a bit complicated, but there is an instruction booklet in the house so we worked it out without too much fuss. Some of the kitchen stuff could do with replacing (can opener / garlic press) but if that is a deal breaker for your holiday you need to reassess your priorities. Overall this is a wonderful property in a wonderful location stocked with a wonderful range of wonderful bits and bobs to make your stay a good one. Pick Up Sticks was very much appreciated.”

    Mr Shenton, Sheffield, February 2018

    • “The cottage cleanliness standard was lacking there were cobwebs on the light and under the sofa was filthy. Also dropped something down the back of the bathroom cabinet and it came out full of hair not very pleasant. It was also full of confetti on the stairs for previous guests. There also needs to be more than one set of keys as the size of the property means you can have two families there and it’s not that secure where the keys are left when all your stuff is in the property.”

    Ms Creighton, Bournemouth, December 2017

    • “Everything about the holiday was wonderful from booking. The only problems were: We had a problem with TV's as only one of the 3 worked. After a phone call engineer was very prompt but could not fix problem but was passing it on to be fixed. This did not spoil our stay though. There were dirty trays in oven (should have been checked by cleaners). Otherwise cleaning was up to standard. Would not stop us from booking or recommending this property to our friends.”

    Mrs Hirst, Wakefield, December 2017

    • “The is a perfect house in a perfect location! Spacious, clean, comfortable and cozy. My family and I loved being here, reluctant to leave.”

    Miss Malone, Edinburgh, July 2017

    • “Perfect location, property, furnishings and fittings. Only comment...there was only one tea spoon!”

    Miss Johnston, Edinburgh, June 2017

    • “Great property very well equipped, a couple of diy issues, tiles off ,loose electric sockets, but excellent standard overall. So much equipment in kitchen nowhere to put groceries, enjoyed our stay and if in the lakes again I would re book. X”

    Ms Horton, Darlington, June 2017

    • “Wonderful spacious property, great location. One negative many chipped cups and plates, but otherwise perfect for our holiday. The staff in the office were very friendly and helpful with our request for Boxing on Sky tv.”

    Dr Wharton, BLACKBURN, May 2017

    • “The garden furniture needs replacing with sufficient and sturdy items. Despite the hot weather the central heating was on and not apparently easy to switch off. The large oven was difficult to operate. The bbq does not seem to work well. Otherwise well equipped and well positioned property with plenty of space.”

    Mrs Sanderson, Skipton, May 2018
