  • "The property was excellent however, our major concern was the process of getting the keys."

    We could not contact the owner in the morning and had to contact Sykes for help. An email or text with the key code on the morning of arrival would have solved the problem and saved us getting anxious.

    Thank you for your comments and I’m glad that you found everything at the house excellent. I’m very sorry that the key collection information proved difficult and this is the first time that any guest has encountered a problem with this. The instruction from Sykes is that you can contact me for the collection details 48 hours before arrival and in truth most guests do this earlier than this. You left me a voicemail at 9 am on the morning of arrival. I responded as soon as I could at 12.30,my lunch break, which was well in advance of the check in time at the property which is 5pm.

  • "This is the sort of place that you want to keep secret because it deserves to be far more popular!"

    The cottage is faultless in all aspects and is a credit to the owners. Very highly recommended.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay and the cottage."

    Good sized bedrooms , comfy beds , ensuite and bathroom were great, bright clean and again a good size. Kitchen really well equipped making cooking any meal easy. Cupboards full of cups, mugs, plates more than enough for the amount of people the cottage can hold. Nice touch was a store of essential everyday items like, salt, pepper, sugar, oils, stock , foil, cling film, then dishwsher tablets, wahing up liquid. Basically the bag packed with things I could not do without were supplied! Really quet location in a village with 2 pubs, a shop and great ealks and places to visit. The outside spaces bith front and rear would be great in summer.We will book again. Parking whilst not straight forward was never a problem we got 2 cars parked with 50-75 yards every time we returned . One of our best cottage holiday stays

  • "House comfy and suited our needs."

    Great location. Plenty space and all necessities were provided. Felt extra care in cleaning should be taken. Under furniture and under cushions especially. Outside areas needed a bit of care and attention. Both front and rear gardens required weeding, tidying and better garden furniture could be provided.

  • "The description of the facilities on your website say "there is no microwave at this property"."

    I contacted your customer services to check if this was correct. They replied that they were sorry but that was correct. No Microwave. With it being Christmas and cooking the Christmas meal and Boxing Day meal, we decided to buy a small microwave. Imagine our frustration after bringing the microwave in the car, to find Yes there was a microwave in the kitchen which was excellent. I was quite annoyed with regard to this error on your listing and your customer services. Please amend your details. I agree with previous reviews the parking is a problem, with double yellow lines on both sides of the road. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay at Low Row. One other minor issue I have never been asked to strip all Beds before vacation, not a problem but I thought it was a little unusual. The property was very clean, and tidy with plenty of amenities. Super.

Cartmel 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere 16 miles.

Cark in Cartmel is a small Lakeland village just two miles from Cartmel, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Cark is well served by the Furness line railway, and features pretty streamside strolls, lovely walks to the local coastline overlooking Morecambe Bay, two fine traditional old pubs and a scattering of small shops. It is a very short stroll from here to Holker Hall, the stately home of Lord Cavendish, whose house, gardens and deer park are open to the public and also now home to a licensed brasserie The Ilex. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful unspoilt countryside or visit The National Hunt Racecourse, the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and the Lakeland Motor Museum, all close by. Nearby Cartmel offers quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, charming gift shops, welcoming traditional pubs serving real ales, and the nationally acclaimed Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings, mountain backdrop, fabulous sea views, promenade and two golf courses is four miles away. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.
