"The description of the property needs amending on the website as there is no longer a ground floor bedroom."
This may be misleading for less able hirers. otherwise this is an excellent property, well equipped, and spacious and nearby to all amenities
Thank you for your recent feedback, we can confirm that the configuration has changed so that the bedrooms are all on the first floor and the living area all on the ground floor. We would love to welcome you back and are glad you enjoyed staying in Woodville Cottage - Owner Relations. Property Owner
"Great property and very near the town centre with easy access to all shops and equal distance to the lakes and sea."
Our only problem was we had an elderly relative with us who uses a stair lift at home and we booked the property thinking it had a downstairs bedroom and toilet. It didn't the owner had changed the rooms around so the listing was out of date. We did have two grandsons who helped bring a single bed downstairs so it all worked out well and the owner was informed. Apart from this glitch the holiday was fantastic and I would recommend the property and Sykes have always been good too.
"Woodville cottage was very clean and comfortable and is situated in a very good location close to amenities"
"An excellent property."
This is our second visit and I'm sure we'll be back. Before I visited the property I got an email saying that the downstairs sitting room was now a bedroom but this was not the case. It didn't effect us at all but just to let you know.
"We had a lovely holiday at Woodville Cottage."
It was the ideal location for easy access to the town of Cockermouth and for good walking in the area. The kitchen is very well equiped, we cooked Christmas lunch and every utensil or dish we required was there. A great time was had by all.
"Very well equipped and very clean house."
A few issues need attention: 1. Lid on outside paper recycling bin has piece missing so contents get wet when it rains 2. A bin collection calender would be useful as the glass & cans bin was almost full when we arrived so had clearly not been put out for the last collection. We only found out which bin was collected the week we were there by consulting the Allerdale website 3. The heating system appeared to have a mind of it's own - it was fairly mild when we were there but we came home a couple of times to find it was on - some instructions would be useful.
"Great location, great property."

"This is one of the nicest holiday homes I have ever stayed in."
It was very well equipped and in a lovely location. Within walking distance of Cockermouth town centre yet very quiet. Very convenient for visiting Keswick and the northern lakes area. I will be recommending it to my friends.

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.
