  • "There was a problem with the water heater but a call to Sykes' help line got me on touch with the property owner very quickly and we were able to resolve the issue over the phone."

  • "Bluebird Loft is a lovely comfortable little apartment in the centre of Coniston."

    The shops, cafes and pubs are nearby and there are amazing walks from the door. The village was nice and quiet at night so there was no disturbance & I slept really well. Incredibly comfy bed, lovely deep bath, tons of hot water and very effective central heating so, despite ridiculously cold weather for May, I was very snug indeed. The washing/drying machine was really useful and the kitchen had everything I needed. All the furniture etc was of good quality and the flat was spotlessly clean. WiFi was a bit iffy at times but no real issues. My only criticisms are that the electric heater would not work, I didn't need it for warmth but it would have been cosy to have the log effect on in the evenings...and the bulbs in living room wall lights were gone, either that or something was wrong with the wiring. All in all it was fabulous, I really enjoyed mý stay.

    Bluebird Loft had everything we needed, and so conveniently located for access to mountains, lake, pubs and shops.

  • "Great location in the centre of Coniston we stayed to run the Coniston 14 mile race and so was a perfect location to make it all accessible."

    Could do with a towel rail or an airer to dry the towels when you don’t have the heating on but that is the only thing. Everything is very high standard and comfortable.

  • "Snug apartment but has everything you need and good facilities in kitchen area."

    Please note that there is a hairdryer, although not mentioned in inventory, so I unnecessarily brought one with me! Convenient location with bistro next door, 3 pubs and other eating places. Coniston is smallish village, but perfectly formed and perfect for location.

  • "The flat was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay at the flat."

    Very clean and nicely located for the village. Comfortable bed and all essential amenities. Will be pleased to stay there again. Sykes emails and instructions were clear and the app was useful. The only issues were that we couldn't figure out how to use the oven/grill or the washing machine and the instructions were not there or didn't help. The CO alarm went off because of low batteries but that's understandable and something that happened by chance.

  • "The apartment was really well appointed, whilst it was small, it had everything you needed."

    We didn't expect it but the only thing lacking was a little outside space like a balcony, that's the only thing that would prevent us rebooking this particular property but you really couldn't fault it in any other way.

    I arrived on the Friday morning, collected the keys and went upstairs, my first impression after opening the day was, wow this is lovely, the flat was very clean and tidy and had absolutely everything i needed, one nice touch was, even though it sleeps only two, it had enough plates etc for a couple of guests, having a washer drier was useful as being in the Lake District, the weather is unpredictable,its situated close to every thing, food shops, pubs etc,very quiet and peaceful even being on the road side, only thing I would suggest would be maybe update to a blueray player, but it wasn't much of a problem, I have recommended it to family members and will do to friends, i will definitely be back in the future, lots of good walking right on the doorstep, hardly using my car

    It would be good to include a map to the bike store as difficult to find.
