    “Nice short break for us (4 nights).”

    Fantastic area of the country and really nice property to stay in. I would describe the property as better than nice if it wasn't for a few niggly problems that with a little care for details could be much better. The problems stasted after we arrived at around 1630 hrs Bank Holiday Monday. Batteries in TV viewing box were flat,batteries in dvd player were missing, no reception on the TV alone.

    Fantastic area of the country and really nice property to stay in. I would describe the property as better than nice if it wasn't for a few niggly problems that with a little care for details could be much better. The problems stasted after we arrived at around 1630 hrs Bank Holiday Monday. Batteries in TV viewing box were flat,batteries in dvd player were missing, no reception on the TV alone. Later in the week when we sorted this we found the TV constantly interrupted by lack of signal. The toilet seat was lose as was the single tap in the sink. There are stains on the carpet, the outdoor furniture ,one bench has fallen apart the rest of the furniture is unuseable due to it being neglected for years. The initial directions to the place were a bit adrift, we phoned the number given and the person answering didn't know the area and could not give directions (unbelievable). That all said these are mostly just little niggles and did not spoil our break. The unit we stopped in had everything we needed was nice and warm with free access to the heating controls, good kitchen with microwave etc and a shower with hot water on demand. We needed a short relaxing break and this is exactly what we got.

    1. TV issue. The property is equipped with Freesat. There are instructions and it works fine if used. I suspect they were not using it 2. We send VERY comprehensive directions. They telephoned my son who is VERY familiar with the area. He told me that they didn't take the details with them. Because they didn't know where they were he found it very difficult to advise them. 3 . We are aware of most of the other comments. Unfortunately Covid has restricted our opportunities to address them. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Allithwaite 1.2 miles.

A delightful barn conversion, set in pretty countryside, within reach of the small village of Allithwaite in the heart of the Lake District Peninsula.

This lovely cottage is also close to the village of Cartmel and the elegant coastal town of Grange-over-Sands.

This comfortable Allithwaite cottage is full of character and charm, with a stunning sitting room with feature wall and floor-to-ceiling windows, leading into a conservatory and on the first floor, you will find a modern shower room.

This cosy Allithwaite cottage is an ideal base for exploring the south lakes, with easy access to Lake Windermere at Lakeside, just 15 minutes' drive away, where you can embark on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway to travel up to the Aquarium of the Lakes and even catch the Windermere Steamer and continue on to the bustling towns of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside.

The ancient priory village of Cartmel is one mile away and has some lovely shops and cafes, including the Cartmel Village Shop, home to the delicious sticky toffee pudding, and Allithwaite itself offers a general store and a pub serving food.

This wonderful Allithwaite cottage is a great base at any time of the year.
