Previous visitors' comments about Byways:
After being treated abysmally by 'Country Cottages' who we had regularly used previously, we discovered Sykes who had this cottage available. The cottage itself was the best of maybe 6 we have previously used in Cartmel.

We had a fantastic time at Byways, in fact I would say it's one of the best holidays we have ever had. The cottage is beautiful, cosy, well-equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed several walks from our doorstep but also had lots of days out around the Lakes. All in all a wonderful holiday. I had been a bit worried about the weather and we had taken books and DVDs in case we couldn't go out- it turned out to be nice and we were out every day, I was secretly a bit disappointed as I would have quite liked to have been rained in at Byways!

Byways is a great cottage in a quiet and convenient location. The cottage is well equipped, very clean, has lots of original features but is modern at the same time. There was always warm water and heating when we needed it. Parking is available as well.
Ms Ripperger, Southampton, September 2012
Cartmel is a very convenient place for the Lake District. On fine weather days the scenery is beautiful.
