We liked the beautiful surroundings and setting of the holiday cottage as well as the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The use of the walled gardens was a big bonus for us as we are both gardeners, and the fact that the whole place is so dog friendly. This was our third visit and we would definitely stay again. We also found the location great for accessing the rest of the lakes.

The cottage grounds were amazing. I will definitely be considering this accommodation either later on in the year or next.

The cottage was very homely in a really nice setting and it did feel as though we were staying in a place that was genuinely cared for. It was lovely and relaxing.

The two-person accommodation is very spacious, but also felt cosy and cottage-like. There is additional heating in the form of a gas coal effect fire and oil filled radiators, helping to make the cottage very cosy. The heated towel rail ensures that the bathroom is always warm and that the towels are warm and dry. The bed and bedding are super comfortable. The complex is quiet and the Lake District is beautiful. There is lots of useful information in the cottage including a fantastic readers digest book all about the Lake District, which includes many photos.

Very quiet and peaceful place to stay. Easy access to the lakes and into Cartmel. The village had lots to offer regarding pubs and eating places.

We loved this cottage! Its location on a small country estate is very picturesque. The cottage is tucked away from the road, so that our dog could be let out straight into the gardens, many walks start straight from the doorstep. The facilities in the cottage were very good, everything you need. We were made to feel very welcome and would love to return again to discover more great walks.

A gorgeous setting, property full of character, very peaceful. Cottage was very clean with all facilities and a very big comfy bed and quilt! Very close to villages for necessities, pub grub and of course the sticky toffee puddings!

The whole package was fantastic! We are very much looking forward to using it again.

The property is damp and dingy the smell was disgusting even the ambulance crew commented on the dampness as we had to call them out due to my wife having cardiomyopathy and the damp was making her ill. The decor was bad and the furniture was so outdated that the sofa was hard to sit on. We did complain to sykes cottages but they have taken the owners word for it that he denied all our complaints even though the ambulance crew backed our complaint up and sykes have refused to send anyone there to check it out no wonder they are leasing below standard properties

We booked for two weeks as we needed a place to stay relocating to the area. As agreed before our arrival with Anthony, we found the key in the door. We turned on the spare heaters (it was cold outside!) and lit the lovely gas fire, unpacked and quickly settled in. The cottage is homely and well furnished. Some of the other cottages were being refurbished, it will be worth revisiting to stay in one of those when they are finished. Staff were very friendly and helpful when I needed some help with the washing machine. Cartmel is a lovely village (try the Sticky Toffee Pudding) and it was great to see racehorses training in the field early morning.. Brilliant stay - hope to go back!

A perfect location for the Sticky Toffee 10k! The gardener was friendly and allowed us to help ourselves to surplus vegetables. The cottage owner was instantly on hand to help us when needed.

Welcome letter on arrival and everything explained. Cottage is furnished very well, warm and full of character. A lovely place inside and out. Fantastic bed! Storage heaters were very efficient and heated the whole cottage. Electric shower over the bath worked well, but not a power shower! Wifi worked perfectly with good strong signal throughout. Never needed to call anyone as has no problems :) Cartmel is a lovely village and the shops are cute. I attended the Remembrance service in the lovely Priory. Well worth a visit. Grange over Sands, 10 mins away, has bigger Spar/Co-Op etc than Cartmel and take-aways if you want more than Cartmel has. So much to do within 45 mins in the car. The South Lakes Wild animal Park is a great day out. Very spacious and a lot are walking around with you!

The bedroom was spacious and the kingsize bed was very comfortable, the best we have slept in. We had a great time and our little dog loved walking round the grounds. Very secluded but not too far from the village.

Probably less than one mile from Cartmel. We have just returned from 3 nights in this cottage. The cottage was absolutely lovely. Open plan lounge with kitchen. Lovely fireplace, but fire not needed this weekend.Very comfortable large bed, and plenty of hot water in the bathroom. No trickling showers here. It was a cosy warm cottage a quarter of a mile from any traffic. Excellent car parking, dog heaven. We had 2 with us. We intended to go out during the evening but the cottage was so welcoming we stayed in every night. During the days we visited Cartmel a couple of times, and Lake Windermere and Bowness, all an easy drive. Fabulous dog walks from the cottage.

This is a lovely, peaceful and quiet place to stay with fantastic views. Me and my boyfriend loved it here with our two dogs. Other friendly people and their dogs stayed in the area. The only thing I would suggest is if you're not staying here for the Cartmel races then don't stay here. It is dearer to stay when the races are on and traveling to other places can take a long time due to the race goers and coaches, which is ridiculous to send through such small roads. Other than that it was a lovely break away.
