    • “The house was perfect, location great.”

    Mr Benson, Workington, November 2018

    • “It would be difficult to exceed the very high expectations that Sykes set. The house was very comfortable and conveniently situated with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby and more options within moderate walking distance. It was well located for exploring Windermere and its surroundings, whether on foot or by car. I would like to add that the staff of the subsidiary company, Lake Cottage Holidays were excellent - very friendly, helpful and solicitous to ensure we had the best holiday. Thank you.”

    Mr Ware, Exeter, October 2018

    • “There is no hair Dryer in the house.”

    Mr Kwong, September 2018

    • “Everything looked exactly like it did in the photos! The cottage was clean, neat and tidy and there was all the kitchen equipment you would use at home. Towels weren't listed as being there but they were included along with tea towels, oven gloves and wash up sponges. We had a great holiday food shopping was easy; a couple of minutes around the corner a coop, a sainsbury slightly further; with a Brookes near the railway station; bus station and Lakeland shop. We walked from the cottage to Bowness where the piers are for the lake. Got the bus to Ambleside from the station (open top so great views) and came back by boat (red cruise one way), we got the bus back up from Bowness to Windermere. It was all included in our Bus and Boat Central Lakes ticket (£12.50 for an adult). What a great day out! Wish I'd got up earlier so I could do the full open top bus ride!! If you like houses and gardens Levens Hall was great the topiary was amazing.”

    Mrs Byrne, Gosport, August 2018

    • “The property we staye in was excellent. It is in the centre of Windermere within walking distance of shops restaurants and pubs, and is only a 15 mins walk to the lakeside at Bowness. It was very well equipped with everything you would need for self catering. The back yard is a suntrap and as we were really lucky with the weather this was a bonus.”

    Mrs Wilkinson, North Shields, June 2018
