    “Fabulous cottage, highly recommended”

    Work as a nurse took me to the beautiful Lake District for a week and having 2 dogs I decided a private rental would be better than a hotel ...

    Work as a nurse took me to the beautiful Lake District for a week and having 2 dogs I decided a private rental would be better than a hotel. My daughter and I picked this delightful cottage through Sykes Cottages and what a find it was. Communication and info from René the owner was efficient, relevant and extremely polite and helpful. I was concerned that the locals wouldn’t be too happy having strangers staying around during lockdown - which was announced several weeks after our booking - but René was very reassuring and we didn’t encounter anything but warmth and friendliness. The cottage was easy to find, well located in a small village with lots of great walks right on the doorstep The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped, nothing had been left out - dishwasher, washer/dryer, 2 fridges and freezers, towels, bedding etc. An extremely good kitchen was very welcome considering all the pubs etc were closed. We stocked up at Aldi in Kendal and cooked at the cottage every day. It was well decorated, warm and cosy and the 2 main bedrooms were very big with lovely comfy beds. The lounge was large with a great wood burner and wood provided which we loved using at night. There was a garden that I imagine is stunning in the summer and a nice conservatory with the bonus of an extra toilet. Downstairs bathroom - again spotless with a powerful double over the bath shower. Everything was in perfect working order and we simply adored it. Some people have mentioned there’s a narrow driveway and it’s true as my car wouldn’t quite squeeze through but it was no problem as we parked right up to the entrance and our car was perfectly safe and off the road. The cottage was a good location for both Kendal and Windermere - about 25 mins to each - and as I was working in both tiens this made life very easy. We would highly recommend this fabulous cottage and we’d love to return in the summer and enjoy more time in the gorgeous Lakes

About the location


Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.
