    Holiday cottage was amazing, so comfortable and well equipped, and above all else outstandingly clean which was reassuring given the pandemic we continue to live through. 10 out of 10; would recommend Sykes and The Crook.

    Lovely village with a great pub and an outdoor swimming pool, quiet but well located for exploring the Northern Lake District. The cottage was spot on - everything we needed, clean and comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "This is a really excellent property, set in a lovely village."

    It is convenient for the Lake District in general but more particularly the Northern Lakes - a delightful place. We would recommend this property, the owners have achieved an excellent balance of comfort and style. Well done.

  • "Brilliant location - peaceful, away from crowds but very close to northern Lakes and useful for supermarkets etc in Penrith."

    Not too far off M6 either. Lovely living room on 1st floor has view over countryside. Main bedroom has very comfortable bed plus brand new en-suite with underfloor heating. Spotless too. Kitchen a bit basic but OK. Nicely furnished and fitted out throughout. All in all excellent.

  • "We enjoyed a fantastic week in this beautifully furnished and equipped cottage in the lovely village of Greystoke."

    Everything appeared to be brand new, the beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for a relaxing bath after a long walk. The outdoor space, a cobbled yard with table and chairs, was perfect for a bbq and caught the sun all day. Add a pub serving good meals a minute’s walk away and a shop selling all the essentials literally across the road, and you have the recipe for a perfect holiday!
