  • "We had a fabulous stay at Oak Cottage and would love to come again."

    The children especially liked having a tv in every bedroom. This was our first time in the Lake District and the cottage was a great base to explore. We loved the modern amenities in the cottage. We had some great walks with fantastic views, and hired a boat on the Lake for a couple of hours. Would love to come back in the summer months. 10/10

  • "Oak Cottage is a wonderful home situated in the middle of Bowness on windermere."

    The owners have furnished the property to a very high standard and provided everything you would need for a stress free holiday. The location could not be surpassed, shops restaurants etc are a five minute walk from the front door, but the cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location. We have stayed in many properties in the Lake District in the past but Oak Cottage certainly tops them all. If we were to return to Bowness there is nowhere else we would want to stay. We had a great holiday and our accommodation was the icing on the cake. There was a small issue with the blind in the twin bedroom, it wouldn't open, but probably something that is easily fixed, didn't cause us any problems as we only used the room for sleeping in and the blind would have been closed anyway. Sorry for even mentioning the blind because this is a wonderful cottage, and these things do happy. Oak Cottage is a wonderful place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Bowness.

    Thank you for your lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Oak Cottage. We spent long hours designing somewhere that we would like to stay ourselves. Thank you for notifying us about the blind, this has now been reported to the maintenance team We look forward to you staying at Oak Cottage again. Property Owner

  • "Lovely place."

    We really enjoyed this cottage. The location and parking are excellent, it was clean and well equipped, the owners have obviously spent a lot of money and it was appreciated, everything is just better quality than most self catering, from the light switches to the toaster. Lots of glasses and mugs etc, the only thing it would benefit from are a couple of hooks on the back of the doors , especially the bathrooms. We would stay again without hesitation. Enjoyed the Christmas decorations too. Thanks

  • "The cottage and location were fantastic."

    However we requested a travel cot which I was told would not be equipped with cot sheet. I was informed this would be a standard size mattress so I accordingly took my own cot sheet and mattress topper.There was no mention it would not have a mattress included. On arrival there was no mattress with the cot. I rang the help line - 01244 617646 on the Saturday and again in Sunday and was assured by Sue and then Fiona it would be sorted. I was asked to leave the key in the key safe if we went out the next day so this could be looked into. I heard nothing further. No feedback whatsoever. We had to use towels as a cushion against the base of the cot for our 8 month old grandson! Needless to say he did not sleep well the whole week. It’s a shame we didn’t have the courtesy of a returned call as I will not be booking with Sykes again.

  • "Really lovely high spec cottage in a great location."

    A lot of thought has gone into using the space well. A couple of comments to improve would be to add hooks in the bathrooms for towels and certainly in the main bedroom more storage space. The only other downside was the bird poo but appreciate nothing can really be done about this
