  • "We had a lovely break, accommodation was of high standard & clean, it was disappointing that the lift to the Ullswater apartments was still not working, this has been several months now also it was unfortunate about the mix-up on booking in."

    My booking confirmation email advised accommodation would be ready at 3pm, at 12.30 on the day when we were over halfway there, we received a text advising accommodation would not be ready till 4pm. On arrival at 3.20pm was advised room still not ready, at 4.05pm got key but had to wait outside room till cleaners finished, they apologised & advised they had been advised we would arrive the next day, got in to room 4.20pm.

  • "Excellent stay."

    Room is just as shown and the pool / jacuzzi / steam room / sauna are all good. As has been said before the staff at reception are excellent although we didn't have any problems during our stay. Was amazed at what you go for what (in our case) was only £46 per night! If I had to give a negative I'd say that the apartment can be a bit on the dark side as all the lighting comes from lamps so there's nothing to illuminate the middle of the room, however we didn't find it a problem.

  • "We love this property."

    It's a bit gloomy and as the switches for the far lighting system are wired upsidedown it would help to have some explanation. A bottle opener would help too. Staff are superb and we'll book again.

  • "Overall the cottage was a lovely relaxing stay."

    There was just a couple of things that I would say need attending to . Bathroom shower no hot water so had to have baths or use the shower after having a swim and a bulb out over the sinks. Cobwebs hanging from the smoke alarm and the beam in the bedroom, water damage stains on the ceiling over by the small window and thick dust behind the TV. Light out in the extractor above the hob . All reported to reception staff, who were all lovely. The only down side to the holiday was that the lift was broke the whole week, this really did impact on the week as the cottage was on the top floor which ment using the stairs each time we left the cottage and as one of us is disabled this made it very difficult especially when first checking in and checking out carrying cases and bags up and down stairs. But we would defiantly stay here again, the location was beautiful, the staff couldn't do enough for you .

    Restaurant open 3 nights out of 7 we stayed. Bar open 5 days. Blamed on staff shortages. Maybe they should of moved some of their many time share selling colleagues into other parts of the resort where they would of been more use.

    Apartment was not cleaned properly, dust, stains and bit's on floors. Could also do with a makeover. Had to keep all windows and vents shut due to a infection of wasps, complained to reception given some spray.

  • "The suize was first class."

    Lack of communication from Sykes cottages themselves until 1 week before we were due is not good customer service and stating dsy before we lrave via an email telling us how to tge suite should be left per instructions from the owner, I have no contact with the owner only Sykes cottages so lack of customer service there too.

  • "It was a lovely setting and the premises were lovely."

    The only problem we had was I cooked using the water and it tasted terrible then i drank some of the water and felt quite ill as it tasted like drinking pool water . After letting reception know the next morning and just drinking the bottled water we had we found out that we had no drinkable tap water as a pipe had burst . Thankfully the Whittbarrow hotel gave us use of another room as otherwise we would have been unable to stay.

  • "Holiday was searched with the criteria of a hot tub, there is a hot tub of sorts well a jacuzi but it’s not your own which we normally have."

    Listing would be better to make this clearer and not have it come up when you check the hot tub requirement. Lovely hotel in a peaceful setting very happy with stay, but be aware it’s not your own hot tub.

  • "Staff friendly, Gym & Pool good."

    Ullswater 29 has stairs between living area & bedroom, toilet/bathroom downstairs, not a problem for us but could be for some. Oven/Grilling facilities were simply a microwave (plus 2 ring hob) so it can limit what you can cook. Lighting is described as romantic but not easy to read or work with. No bottle opener (crown top type - there is a corkscrew) provided. Cooker extractor just above the sink so average height will bang their head. I imagine it could be very busy in high summer. View (when it stopped raining) was lovely. I would cheerfully return.

    Thank you for your feedback. Oven and grilling facilities are as advertised as a hob and microwave in the property description below. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and want to return to Ullswater 29. Property Owner

About the location


Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle (The Windsor of the North), Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
