    • “Well, this was the best holiday ever. We've travelled many times in the UK, but there is something so magical about the Lake District. Accommodation was very comfortable and had been decorated to a very high standard. Nearby, there is always something to do, such as the Lake District River Cruises., Horse riding and Escape Rooms. We tried Lakeland Pony Trekking at Lime Fitt - it was one of the most amazing experiences ever with such a beautiful backdrop and lambs grazing within feet of your ride. We also tried the Cliffhanger Escape Rooms - great for team building and we escaped the Pharoahs Curse too. Nearby is Ambleside where you will find a gorgeous little chocolate shop - still hand making chocolates today. Then there are larger towns of Kendal nearby with Keswick also not that far away. Our accommodation was within a couple of streets from the town centre so you can get everything from gifts, to conveniences, chemists and eateries/pubs. Fish and Chips really tasty and lots of clean and pretty areas to explore. I loved every minute of this holiday and even though we booked with Sykes back in July 2018 when we went to Cornwall, in my opinion, this holiday to the Lake District was even better. A great getaway for anyone who works hard and really needs a break.”

    • “The apartment was very nice inside, although i would not class it as 100% child friendly. There were no stair gates for our 18 month old, so we had to constantly watch her like a hawk. Also within the bathroom, the shower screen was not water tight, and did not contain the water very well when using the shower. I think that there should be reference made in the listing to the steep steps leading into the property, as this would not be ideal for the less mobile.On the whole though a very nice apartment.”

    Mr Basil, Hampshire, September 2018

    • “Great walking distance from Bowness and Orrest Head.”

    Mrs Hirani, London, August 2018

    • “We had a lovely stay. The apartment is in a brilliant location and really well appointed. Not what we were expecting from the outside but beautiful inside. Beds are really comfy and there is everything you could need. For those with children there is a great park two minutes walk away on park avenue and plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants within easy walking distance. There is sky but it is a basic package and can’t watch on demand without WiFi so might be better to have WiFi and just use the smart tv. We would return.”

    Mrs Fry, North Ferriby, July 2018

    • “Property in a great location and easy to get to. We had a slight issue with the iron and ironing board but was resolved promptly with minimal fuss. Would recommend Sykes and this property to friends and family.”

    Mr Teeluck, Beverley, May 2018

    • “Lover the place and area and will definatly visit again asap. We did have trouble getting the hob to work so it may be worth checking out and if everything is fine, leave some instructions for use. Didn't effect us as we only had breakfast and ate out as we had planned.”

    Mrs Walton, Radstock, May 2018

    • “Had a lovely holiday and it’s a great apartment, however we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the apartment. There were complimentary jam and marmalade’s but they had been opened already and used, and not replaced. The sofa also had lots of crumbs and dirt on, and the carpets could have done with a good hoover. It felt like the cleaning was a bit rushed.”

    Ms Deeley, Torquay, September 2018
