  • "Lovely property, well maintained and perfectly ready for us on arrival."

    Maintenance staff attended three times during our stay, and were pleasant and approachable

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and the one level helped the less mobile person."

    We would hope to come back next year. The lighting in the living area was rather dim and the sewing fraternity were forced to do close work in the kitchen! The cooker/oven were dirty. Two of the trays were very dirty. Could have done with a few more pieces of cutlery. Beds, linen and bathroom facilities were extremely good. The Pool. The ladder was inadequate. The treads were too narrow and the ladder did not reach deep enough. One lady could not get out until a bucket was sunk below steps and assistance given. We sorted out the pool cover, so the rope reached the length of the pool. Nice and warm.

  • "An extremely stunning and beautiful property!"

    Trust me, photos don't do justice..lol. Fully equipped, massive kitchen. Me and my family enjoyed every second of our stay. Very tastefully decorated throughout. We have stayed in various holiday cottages up and down the country but, this one is by far our favourite property for a relaxing family holiday! The swimming pool was amazing, pool water temperature was just right. The shower in the pool area was really good. Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed this well deserved break since Covid. Would highly recommend and definitely return with my family! Sykes rated this property 3 stars, after my personal experience I would give it 5 stars :)

  • "On our first day we only had hot water and heating for approx one hour in the morning."

    I phoned Sykes Cottages reporting this and the owner phoned me back in the afternoon and the problem was rectified immediately, although the radiator in the lounge barely got warm. Dog poo was found in the lounge in front of the patio door. The large rug in the lounge is a trip hazard. My elderly mother had to be extra careful! The pool was very cold which was a great disappointment as I booked this property because of this added bonus. There was no hot water coming out of the shower in the pool room. The kettle lid was broken. May I suggest in purchasing a bread board and butter knives for the kitchen. Overall, the property was clean and as it was all on one floor it was great for my mother.

  • "The cottage is in a great location and is much bigger than we were expecting with everything we needed."

    Having the pool was a lovely treat. The only issue was that the first half of the week the pool was quite cold but by the end of the week the temperature was very comfortable. This is definitely a cottage we would return to.

  • "Communication from Sykes before the holiday was not very good."

    I raised a question which was not answered by them, but by a review on the property. I then sent another question which again they didn't answer and I which I had to chase for answers. However, on arrival at the property (good instructions for finding it) the house was perfect for our needs and especially as it is on one level throughout for my elderly parents who have limited mobility. The seat in one of the showers was particularly useful and was a real bonus for them. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the front room and dining table were a lovely family space for chatting, playing games, etc. Most of our group enjoyed the use of the pool which is a fantastic size and private, but it was too cold for my elderly parents to use. In fact the pool temperature was very up and down, not at all constant. We had one day in which I would say it was a comfortable temperature to get in. All the other times it was on the chilly side. The shower in the pool block was consistently scalding hot, far too hot to stand under. However, on the whole, the pool was a great addition to the holiday for most of our family. The house is situated in a great area with Bassenthwaite Lake very close indeed. The other lakes we visited were Derwent Water, Buttermere and Grassmere. All beautiful and not too far away from the property. The whole area is beautiful and we had a lovely holiday.

  • "The owner could not have been more helpful."

    He is exceptional. I really love the facilities and location. We will go back. It was however a nightmare to get through to get a cot and high chair via Sykes. We wasted hours trying to get through in the week before we went. I have the owners mobile number now thank goodness. I will book via the Sykes mobile app. which to be fair really is excellent.

  • "Loved the cottage and it’s location."

    Comfortable throughout. Only criticisms was the availability of hot water, with 3 of us staying the hot water was not always available on demand. System could do with updating or a different setting. Also previous tenants left some oven trays that were not cleaned thoroughly. Apart from that we would book again when the opportunity arises.

    Within easy walking distance of pub which serves great food and a spa hotel that also serves good meals and is dog friendly. Easy driving distance to several lakes.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
