  • "The holiday property was lovely with facilities to enjoy."

    The owner personally phoned me to see how everything was and told me the story of the house and how they had done all the renovations which was really lovely. I was disappointed we didn’t receive a welcome pack as this was hard to work out a few things especially the waste and bins. The house was very comfortable but we found a lot of pet hairs on the cushions and quite a few cobwebs which I wouldn’t have in my own home! And a human hair in the freezer!

    Thank you for your feedback. We, at Lakes Cottage Holidays, manage the cleaning of Fell Foot and i am disappointed to read your comments about the cleanliness. Please be assured we will act on this as a matter of urgency. LCH Management Property Owner

  • "I visited for my friends hen party, it was a beautiful house, had an amazing time and the setting was perfect."

    Would definitely recommend! I have spoken to the owner and she was so lovely and made the effort to make sure we were having a great stay

  • "We all had a lovely time."

    For future users the loose steps to the lower garden need to be repaired, and it would also help to have the GPS coordinates for the car entrance. (I'm not complaining, just tips.) It was a nice touch having a call from the owners to ask if everything was ok. Our youngest family member loved watching the sheep and birds. Great being able to walk down the pub. Loved the friendliness in the area.

  • "We had a wonderful week - I requested the twin beds be kept as twin and one of the king size beds be made into a twin."

    Unfortunately this was misunderstood on the telephone and we had no twin bedrooms. I appreciate that requests are best made by email as phone calls can be misinterpreted. After ringing Sykes, a very pleasant lady came to rectify within 40 mins. I was very satisfied with Sykes’s speedy response and follow up calls. Fell Foot was spotless, beautifully decorated and lived up to all expectations. The Spa was a bit of fun and the sauna appreciated after a long hike. Thank you for our wonderful stay at Fell Foot.

  • "The property was an excellent base for a large family group, well located close to Newby Bridge, handy for visits to the Lake District, and also the Morecambe Bay area, including Grange, Cartmel, and Sizergh."

    The accommodation is brilliant - very spacious, with five good en-suite bedrooms, a large and comfortable lounge and well- fitted kitchen/diner, lovely gardens with various outside seating areas, space for 5/6 cars, and the bonus of hot-tub and sauna (we only made use of the former, which was very good).

  • "Just returned from a wonderful weekend at Fell Foot."

    As 9 adults in our party we found the house to be homely and comfortable with amazing views. All the bedroom are spacious and everyone commented on what a good nights sleep they had. The kitchen is well equipped and all adults fitted easily around the large kitchen table. We enjoyed the hot tub and sauna but it could be improved by having outdoor lighting by the hot tub for enjoying into the evening, even though this did not stop us using it. Overall a fantastic place to stay, we would definitely return and highly recommend.

  • "For our party the only problem we had was the 2 stairs from the kitchen area down to the lounge."

    We booked the property thinking the bedroom, kitchen and lounge were on the same level.

  • "We loved the house."

    Beautiful views ,very clean and a real bonus to have 5 large bedrooms. Had everything we could want or need. Slight problem with the heating, radiator in the living room not coming on + no logs or kindling left in the log basket. These problems were quickly resolved by the owners contacting the maintainance man. Would book again.

    Big enough to accommodate all the family so that we could celebrate our 40th wedding together. Would highly recommend.

  • "There was plenty of space for the six of us and the four grandchildren."

    The large kitchen was well equipped, could possibly do with some waste paper baskets especially in the lounge. There was plenty of outside space the hot tub was a great hit as was the sauna a barbecue on each level and a fire pit you couldn’t ask for anything more. Perhaps two refuse bins instead of one would be beneficial. It would be a great place to spend Christmas if the weather allowed. We all had a fantastic time and would definitely go again.

  • "A fabulous house oozing with home comforts and personal touches that make you feel more than at home."

    Recently finished to high standard with almost everything like new. Four of the bedrooms are en-suite and one in the hall, so a bathroom for everyone. All the rooms are a good size (not to big or small), including the lounge. The kitchen Diner layout is excellent in that you can sit everyone around in comfort and still work the kitchen with ease The location is also excellent with elevated views to the distance which can be enjoyed from the south facing balcony. The local pub is also just a short walk from the bottom of the garden. There is little to fault with this charming, well proportioned and located house which really worked for our needs.

  • "The property was amazing!"

    It's in a lovely location in a quieter part of the Lake District but within easy drive of the main attractions. It's beautifully furnished and our teenage children made great use of the hot tub and sauna whilst my husband and I enjoyed our glass(es) of wine alfresco in the lovely gardens, accompanied by the sound of birdsong and the sheep and calves in the neighbouring field! The owners - Mr and Mrs Lesser - were very welcoming and have done a magnificent job in renovating and decorating the house to such a high standard. We all agreed that the beds were the most comfortable we've ever slept in and the little touches - such as toiletries, games and guides - were much appreciated. The local pub was still closed when we stayed but is apparently due to open shortly; however, the opportunity to spend evenings just relaxing in the lovely surroundings of the property itself was welcome after days spent exploring the fells. We've been to the Lake District many times but this was the first time we've enjoyed such glorious weather throughout. That, together with this wonderful house, made it a family holiday to remember. We've already recommended it to friends and family - we will be back!

    The cottage is brilliantly equipped with everything we needed. Everything felt brand new and incredibly clean. Hot tub and sauna were great after a long day. Lounge is so cosy with the fire. Much needed in the wind and rain! We enjoyed it so much we’ve booked again for next year and we’re already looking forward to it. Many thanks from the Jaques family x

  • "We and our family stayed at Fell Foot for a week in August 2020."

    Mr & Mrs Lesser were most welcoming; everything had been prepared fully, making sure that we had all we needed for the week. We numbered 6 adults and two youngsters aged 11 and 7. The accommodation was excellent, there being 5 double bedrooms, 4 of which were en-suite. The fixture and fittings were very stylish but homely; and the kitchen was fully-equipped, with sufficient space for us all to sit and eat together comfortably. The lounge was equally welcoming, with a TV and many guide-books to keep us occupied in the evenings. Outside, on the hillside, just a few metres walk up the path from the front door, were a table and chairs ideally positioned for a view of the neighbouring hills while enjoying an aperitif in the early evening sun. The location was ideal for exploring the southern lakes inc.Winderemere and Coniston, and was a short drive from Morecambe Bay and, in particular, Grange over Sands, a quaint town with lots of character and a lovely promenade walk. All in all, we spent a very enjoyable week in great surroundings; and even the couple of rainy days did not stop us from enjoying the wonderful features of the Lake District.
