  • "Quiet cottage about a mile or so from Bowness; ideal for a good break and well situated for Bowness & Windermere."

    This was our second visit and we’ll hopefully be returning sometime soon. Recommended.

  • "We loved everything about our stay at Corner Cottage."

    Such a beautiful place that we would love to stay at again. The only thing I’d say is that you need to update your information about the car parking to save future confusion. The car parking space is at the side of the garages not in front of garage number 6. Other than that the cottage is a beautiful place in a wonderful location.

  • "Very well equipped, tidy and well located cottage, great for exploring the surrounding area from."

    Our family of 4 were very comfortable here. Only slight negatives is that you are in a terrace and reliant on other “renters” being aware of their noise, big family next to us didn’t mind making a lot of noise outside early in the mornings. And we couldn’t park our car in the allocated space as it was taken by another vehicle for 3 days, neither are the fault of the owners and shouldn’t take away from what is a nice rental property.

  • "We had an enjoyable week, nice peaceful location and handy for Bowness and Windermere."

    Directions to find cottage were ok, however, it was not made clear where we could park as Garage No.6 was not visible from cottage and in the pouring rain and darkness it was not easy to find. There were a couple of defects in the property and as with other Sykes properties it is difficult to know how to report such issues. As with most other properties there was a Visitors Book and a previous occupant had recorded one of the faults so I assume that the cleaners had not looked at the book. In the current pandemic it is probably not a good idea for visitors to be entering things in the book and maybe an email address to owners ought to be provided so any faults/defects can be reported. One of the faults was in main light in the lounge, two of the lamps in the main ceiling cluster extinguished after a short period of time, one was extinguished all the time leaving two operating correctly. The other fault was a continuous flush on the toilet resulting in not only a waste of water but also a filling cistern every few minutes, the noise of which could be heard throughout the cottage and was disturbing at night.

  • "The cottage is in a great location for exploring the Lake District."

    It's near Bowness but easy to travel to hiking and biking spots. It had everything we needed for a relaxing week's stay and we loved the garden (although the weather didn't let us sit out in it very much!). We would be very happy to stay here again on our next trip to the Lakes.

  • "We had a lovely week at Corner Cottage."

    The place is cosy, inviting and well equipped. We appreciated the use of the garden, football and chiminea. As a Mum to other parents I would say the high chair is fine and the travel cot like new (although doesn’t have the additional mattress so take your own). We also took our own non slip bathmat. Be aware there is no stair gate at the top of the stairs, we just closed bedroom/ bathroom doors and the children were fine. Handily there is a door on the bottom of the stairs . I’d recommend the cottage for families, the above details are simply to help you pack.

  • "We had a fantastic time at Corner Cottage and will definitely be back."

    The garden gets the sunshine all day long, and you're only a short walk into Bowness. We stayed just after the water main had been upgraded and the shower now works just fine.

    Advertised with shower but it was unusable due to problem with low water pressure, should have been told beforehand, otherwise the cottage was very comfortable and well equipped in lovely location.

  • "We thought the cottage and garden was perfect however would offer the following observations to make it better."

    1. Car park space needs to be explained in rival information as it was very unclear on arrival. 2. Shower was rubbish. Wife couldn't use the bath so it was a problem. Seemed o suffer from pressure issues. Would come out as a trickle and mostly cold eventually stopping to just a drip even when turned on. 3. It was very warm and only a thick duvet available. Having some flat sheets would have been really good. 4. Recycling boxes and bag was confusing. Couldn't find any guide on what should go in and when rubbish was collected. However.... we loved the cottage so much that we are already looking to see when we can book it again.
