  • "Immaculately clean, lovely decorated and very homely property."

    The property is well equipped....the only one very minor comment is that there was no tea/coffee etc available. We still had a wonderful family stay and we would love to return to this property in the future.

  • "A wonderful property that was beautifully presented and very well equipped."

    Jane, the house keeper deserves special mention, not only for her efforts in ensuring that the property was spotless, but also for her friendly communication throughout our stay.

  • "This is a really nice, well specked cottage that I would guess has recently been decorated with new carpets."

    There is really little to fault. Ok you do have to walk across your own private parking spot (25 feet) to get to the garden table which frankly is no great shakes. The table gets the sun from late morning all the way through to the evening, ideal for a sundowner! The cottage is located on the very edge of the town centre, less than 1 minute walk from the top of the Main Street where you will find an abundance of shops and restaurants (suggest you try and rebook these) and 10 minutes from the ‘dock’ area. It is set back off the main road and very quiet. We did a couple of trips on the open top bus, a great way to see the area and very cheap at about £5 for a hop on hop off service. Highly recommend this place.

  • "The outside space was a little misleading, the pictures made it look like it ..."

    The outside space was a little misleading, the pictures made it look like it was like a garden or balcony, when it was down a flight of stairs out the front door and across the car park

  • "This is around the fifth cottage we have booked with Sykes and have never been disappointed, however this one exceeded our expectations in all areas."

    Exceptionally clean and comfortable and exceptionally well equipped, our only problem was bins, the bin was full when we arrived and we did not have clear instructions re what to do with our rubbish. Although just off a main road it was so very quiet and peaceful. The descriptions were very accurate. Most visitors noted a lack of WiFi in the premises our son brought a mobile router and he needed it as he was called away early for work. There is always a solution.

  • "The only small point (that didn’t affect our holiday at all) we were under the impression the property had a small patio as there was a little table and chairs shown in the pictures which were actually at the front in the car park."

    As I said this didn’t affect us, the rest of the property and the location more than made up for it!

The property

Woodside West is a contemporary cottage enjoying views over the village bowling green towards Lake Windermere.

The property is centrally located, it’s stylish and comfortable.

The boutique features make this accommodation a sophisticated retreat.

You’ll find plenty of space for sociable meals in Woodside West, whilst the views bring about a sense of serenity and of course the bonus of Bowness and Lake Windermere right outside your door.. The patio/terrace with two private parking spaces are rare to find from such a central location, they are perfect for warm days or for enjoying a glass of something before dinner and so here you really do have the best of both worlds.

Bowness village is just a stone's throw away, with fine restaurants, convenient shops and pubs.

If searching for a smart, central Lakeland cottage, with more bathrooms than bedrooms, Woodside West is well worth considering.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
