  • "Great property, second time we have booked this cottage."

    Plenty of room and enough bedrooms for eight people. Cottage well equipped, kitchen great, staff excellent and very helpful. Hot tub went down well and kids enjoyed daily visit of resident ducks. Would recommend early booking as cottage very popular due to location and facilities.

  • "This was a very well equipped and comfortable cottage."

    Unfortunately not all the guests could attend due to a bereavement and Covid so three of us were lucky to enjoy the facilities instead of seven. It is close to Bowness but a shame it’s not really possible to walk there as there is no walkway/footpath, you really have to drive in. It’s a great base for exploring the southern end of the lakes. Only thing to say is the directions for getting to the cottage could have been more precise, doesn’t say which junction of the M6 and which A road to follow, not obvious if you don’t know the area.

    The living space allowed us to be all together as a family and the view into the garden made us feel like we were in the lakes every moment of our trip! We loved it!

    Everyone had their own space but we were all together under one roof. Beautiful views and wildlife. Ducks to feed in the morning which my granddaughter loved! The hot tub was a welcome treat after my husband had run in the Coniston 14 road race. I can’t speak highly enough of the location and facilities of the cottage - brilliant!

  • "We stayed with a group of friends and our first impressions were wow."

    The cottage was beautifully decorated, the beds were super comfy and although it was January the cottage was lovely and warm. This was particularly important when we had been out for the day. The bathrooms were all modern and the kitchen was kitted out to such a high standard, it had everything you could ever need and enough pots and pans for our party of 10. The hot tub made the week for us, just to be able to have a nice soak at the end of the day. The cottage is in beautiful countryside but only 20 minute walk from the centre of Bowness or a £5 taxi ride. The Sykes staff were amazing, so helpful and it was nice to know that they were on site if needed. Would definitely go back.

  • "Absolutely loved the facilities, the cleanliness and location of the cottage, couldn’t of asked for anything more!"

    The only factor that impacted our experience was leaving day when you have to be out the cottage at 10 am prior to departure We knew we had to strip the beds etc but to then find we had to sort through the bed linen and towels splitting it all into bags of bed sheets, pillow cases, duvet cover, bath towels, leisure towels is an excessive ask it we had to get up at 0730 to make sure we had our breakfast washed and cleaned all the dishes and put them back in the cupboards as per the request and cleaned through and sorted the linen. Not what you want to be doing on the last day!

    Facilities in the cottage were all good, the cottage is large enough so that the ten people staying are not under each others feet. I would really recommend this cottage and even though there are other cottages around they don't interfere with each other.

  • "LOCATION We stayed in the “Cherry” cottage – one of half a dozen self-contained cottages at the end of a private drive on the hill above Bowness (at The Glebe end)."

    While it’s not an un-walkable distance from Bowness, the walking route isn’t very safe as there is no pavement and the route can be quite busy. But there’s plenty of parking in Bowness – just remember to budget for parking fees! Most of the car parks accept payment via the PayByPhone app – so no cash needed. OUTDOORS Each cottage has an outdoor seating area with plenty of chairs, a 6 person (at a squeeze) hot tub, and a BBQ platform (for disposable and camping BBQs). The outdoor space is screened from the neighbours so it is nice and private. Cherry backs on the woods so you won’t get much afternoon or evening sun, but you’ll enjoy the birdsong. The grounds are immaculate and everything is well maintained. We had two dedicated parking spots 50 yds from the front door, and parked two more cards in the large overflow car park just 150 yds away. There is an office on-site if you have any problems (or forget your key card). Cherry also has a nice large outdoor space adjacent to the property in which we played football and boules. BEDROOMS Four bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs, all with comfy mattresses and pillows, and the linen was all spotless. You get a bath towel and hand towel per person, as well as a separate towel to use with the hot tub. Two of the bedrooms upstairs were en-suite (with double cubicles and powerful hydraulic showers), there was a spacious family bathroom with shower over (perfect for bathing our baby grandson), and a nice open landing. The downstairs bedroom was also en-suite, and there was a cloakroom off the utility. Just remember to keep the blinds closed when the sun is out, as the rooms are in the roof and can get uncomfortably warm. KITCHEN A lovely big open plan kitchen diner with all the mod cons including dishwasher, microwave and toaster. Tastefully done and well equipped with crockery, cutlery, pans and utensils including a commercial-sized cookpot and frying pan! The table seated 10 comfortably. Off the kitchen is a utility with a washing machine and tumble dryer, and a very useful second “drinks” fridge. The dining room has French Doors opening out to the deck, and morning and night we were visited by families of ducks which was areal treat for our grandson. LIVING Three big sofas, lots of side tables, and a big open space in the middle for our grandson to play! A big Sony TV with all the usual smart tv features and a soundbar was much appreciated for watching the Euro 2020 football. There is another set of French Doors opening onto the deck – so plenty of air circulation when it got really got. SERVICE We absolutely could not fault the service we received from the management team. They responded promptly to queries in advance and while on-site, and there was an office on-site to help with any queries during our stay. We were unhappy with the cleanliness of the floors when we arrived – a by-product on the additional sanitisation required elsewhere because of COVID I guess – but they sent a crew in on Saturday morning to address this. OVERALL Cherry Cottage definitely deserves a 4.5 star rating, and we will be coming back again. So we have no hesitation in recommending it as a fab base for a family holiday in the Lakes, with lots of luxury at a very reasonable price.

  • "We loved our stay at Cherry cottage."

    I found Sykes was excellent to deal with, responded quickly to email query and phoned to confirm requests. The cottage was lovelt, spacious, clean and tidy. A couple of things to mention, we could have done with more than 4 loo rolls for 10 of us for 2 nights. We ended up going to the shop to buy more which was a bit inconvenient. We did ask for all the rooms to have twin beds but 2 of the rooms were still doubles. Fridge freezer wasn't working on arrival but quickly sorted. The welcome pack was a nice touch, would be nice to maybe have ice trays filled in the freezer for arrival. We would have loved a few little blankets so we could take advantage of the outside space more on the cooler evenings. There was lots of wildlife in the woods behind the cottage including a little deer that kept popping up and Mrs and Mr Duck who visited every morning to see what they could get for breakfast! Thanks for a a lovely stay

    Also when we arrived on the weekend the neighbours we think in the big house were extremely noisy, also every time the immediate neighbours moved a chair (which they done quite often especially late at night) you could hear them dragging the chairs across the wood floor! We loved the hot tub and my daughters used it morning and night. The accomodation was in a lovely setting my daughter watched the wildlife every morning, the walk to Windermere via the footpath was more than a 15 minute walk but very pretty. All the villages in the surrounding area were very pretty Coniston was a lovely place and we travelled up to Keswick which is worth a visit. All in all a lovely holiday.

  • "1. The ground floor shower room was not suitable for use by anyone with a mobility problem as there is high step up into the shower and nothing to hold onto [ eg."

    grab rails] when entering or leaving the shower. I was unable to shower during our stay but had to make do with standing to wash. I did enquire about suitability of shower use before booking and felt misled. Also the shower room is so small that it is difficult to use. The hand wash basins are cloakroom size making it awkward for tooth cleaning without banging into the wall. The ground floor shower room is approximately 7 feet x by less than 3 feet wide then hand wash basin 10 inches deep and a shower and toilet fitted into the space. Not much room for comfort ! The showers were difficult for the able bodied among us due the bi-fold doors. 2. Without moving and making use of the hot-tub steps and the cigarette end box it was not possible for me to use the patio area due to high steps again . 3. Although access to the communal on-site open fields and woodlands is advertised the gates , apart from one we found, have notices saying 'KEEP OUT' 4. Overall it was a disappointing experience because it did not meet the expectations implied by the advertising which uses the word ' luxury' when there was an overall meanness of spirit in that it , although was very comfortable in some ways, failed in others such as cheap small sized cutlery, rather worn kitchen goods, no pegs for hanging washing on line, no spare toilet paper and minimal hospitality welcome. I do understand that this a self-catering holiday but its not the cheapest and the advertising raises expectations which are not met. 5. Some aspects of my complaints we could have easily overlooked but not the difficulty of not being able to use a shower . The expectations on arrival were were lessened by a notice saying 'overflow car park' when we felt were going to a quiet cottage in the country side and there were a lot more buildings on the site not shown in the advertising. 6. I have now spent a great deal of time , on several occasions , pointing out the shortcomings of this holiday let when I would much preferred to have come home feeling more relaxed and less stressed about the lack of quality regarding our stay. 7. Sadly and lastly we may not book with Sykes Cottages again as our recent holiday experiences have failed in one or more ways as I expect your records show.

Guests will be thrilled as they arrive in this hidden glade set amongst mature woodland, with native trees and local wildlife on display.

An ideal location for that much sought after Lakeland break with family and friends, explore the area, discover the many footpaths or simply relax in the hot tub and take in the beautiful surroundings.

Recently renovated, this contemporary and welcoming cottage offers an ideal layout, with many of the aspects taking advantage of the lovely woodland views.

The sitting room is spacious and includes a cosy woodburner, a large screen wall-mounted Smart TV and stylish, comfortable furnishings.

A delightful, well-equipped kitchen with open plan dining area and an adjoining utility area provide a great space to prepare family meals and sit around to enjoy a glass of wine and a good old catch up.

A ground floor bedroom with king-size double luxurious bed and a modern en-suite with walk-in shower, provide that little extra touch of luxury.

There is also a useful cloakroom in the utility area and a spacious entrance hall.

Upstairs, the cottage features a further four bedrooms, two with en-suite and a superb family bathroom with a relaxing bath.

Outside, there is a decked area overlooking the woods and a luxurious hot tub, an ideal spot to relax after a strenuous day out on the local fells.

Just a short distance away is the wonderful Windermere Golf Club, a most welcoming club with a great layout to suit all standards.

In the opposite direction, a short walk takes guests down to the Lake Ferry where a short cruise gives access to the far shore, Hawkshead, Coniston Water and the magical Tarn Hows.

All the facilities of Bowness-on-Windermere are a short drive or a long walk from Cherry cottage and the not to be missed attractions include the hand-made chocolate shop and the wonderful walks along the Bowness promenade where the many cruise ships run down the Lake to Ambleside.

There are picturesque walks straight from the cottage door including the Dales Way which runs by the golf club, footpaths to Crook and Staveley and for the more adventurous walks across to Cartmel Fell.

Further afield Brant Fell which provides stunning views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding fells, including the Langdales and Crinkle Crags are some of the most outstanding challenges in this wonderful area.
