  • "Lovely cottage."

    Very well furnished Spotlessly clean and is just as advertised thank you for a lovely stay

    Thank you for your kind words. I’m very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We spent three nights at West View and we all had a fantastic time."

    The property has a wonderful location and shares gorgeous views. It had everything that we needed, a great kitchen/diner, bedrooms and bathrooms which were all spotless. There was also a laundry room with an additional fridge freezer which was useful. The three kids all slept upstairs in the loft room which they loved. Any minor issues were dealt with swiftly after a call to Jo and we couldn't fault anything. We would love to return again and try out the beaches in warmer weather!

    ) the snow! The owner was very helpful and soon helped get the fire roaring when we arrived. Lovely kitchen and comfortable and clean throughout. The views over the fields are spectacular and the location for Cartmel, Ulverston and Kendal was perfect. We hope to return as we had a lovely and very relaxing week. Excellent value for money.

  • "Jo the owner of the cottage was amazing with me."

    I was a lone traveller with two elderly labradors. I had to walk to the cottage as no taxis available from the train station. Jo phone me several times during my walk and gave me excellent directions to the cottage. She phoned when I was at the cottage to check I was alright. Jo kept in contact throughout the week as she know I was on my own. She gave me some really good tips on the various walks available. The cottage was lovely, a real home from home. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. I would definitely recommend West View to anyone coming to the area. Thank you Jo for all your support.

    Dear Maggie It was a pleasure. I am glad you had a very good break. Jo Property Owner

    We always managed to park outside the cottage on the road. The enclosed back yard is fairly small but it was safe for our dog to sniff about in. The view from the back windows was fab and we loved having the door open to watch the sheep and enjoy the peace and quiet. Thank you

  • "The cottage and garden has been slightly neglected."

    The property, in my opinion, needs a deep clean and the garden would benefit from a tidy up. The hall and stairway requires a fresh coat of paint. The cottage was well equipped and in a great location, with easy access to other villages and country walks.

    Dear Sharon Thank you for your constructive feedback. The garden was due to be tidied, and I'm sorry it wasn't done before your stay. Likewise, I agree that the hallway and stairs are ready for repaint. However, I'm surprised you thought the cottage would benefit from a deep clean. My daughter is staying there this week, and I'll ask her to give it a thorough check. I hope these points did not spoil your stay, and that you were able to enjoy your break. Warm regards Jo Property Owner

    It was great base to explore the southern side of the lakes. We particularly liked visiting Cartmel and found ourselves there almost every day enjoying a drink in the square. Was a bit concerned about parking but never found it a problem and almost always managed to find a space directly outside the cottage. It was a fabulous holiday and would love to come back someday.

    It had everything we could possibly need and the views from the rear of the property were great, watching the rabbits whilst eating breakfast and the birds flying over at night. We were worried on road parking would be an issue but this was fine and we managed to park directly outside the property everyday provided you avoided returning at the end of the school day as the property is quite near a quiet village primary school. Would definitely recommend this property.

  • "The owner has put a lot of thought into providing all the conveniences of home and the kitchen had everything we needed."

    It is a lovely room with the feature doors, restful view and sun in the morning. Living room comfy and a generous starter supply of logs for the burner. The main bedroom is spacious with a well finished en-suite shower room. The second bedroom, with two small size single beds is on the floor above the main bathroom which might be important for some to know, and was a bit of an issue for us - two single friends - ( i.e. who gets the good room?). The third bedroom with a single bed, which is on the same floor as the bathroom has no wardrobe or other storage. Loved Allithwaite and the villages around - very peaceful.

  • "Like most families we needed this holiday very much!"

    So having a clean, comfortable, cosy cottage to relax in, make meals in, drink wine in (thanks for the wine!) and just be in a different place was super. A lovely glazed kitchen extension for meals and the patio got abit of sun. We had everything we needed. Lots of books and walk suggestions. Excellent beds, slept well and both showers good too. We couldn't work out the central heating or the recycling arrangements (sorry!) but probably just us! Once we needed to dry clothes as we were drenched on a walk (which didn't bother us, all par for the course in the Lakes!). Lots to do in the area especially if you like walking, great shops in Flookburgh and Cartmel. Went to Morecambe, Arnside and Coniston, all well within an hour s drive. Obviously corona not gone, but the cottage was clean, well organised safety measures from Sykes and we felt completely safe at all times.

    Facilities within the cottage were as advertised. There was a slight issue with cleanliness with a used razor that was left in the soap tray of the shower in the en-suite but that apart everything was satisfactory. It was a delight to look out from the breakfast table onto the hills with sheep grazing and all manner of birds flying by. We were unfortunately unable to connect to the wifi even though we worked to the instructions that were left for us. The cottage was ideally placed for touring and we certainly made the most of it. Our 2 grandchildren aged 4 and 9 really enjoyed the local park which was only a short walk from the cottage. We were also impressed by the friendliness of the local people particularly at the Pheasant Inn where we had a very good Sunday Lunch top off by a generous portion of sticky toffee pudding and custard. Carmel is a delightful village and viewing the historic Abbey is a must see. Grange over Sands has a lovely park and a stroll along the promenade looking out over Morecombe Bay was breath-taking. Yes, we would definitely return but maybe next time it would be in late spring or early summer.
