    Can’t fault Sykes. The cottage though is in need of work. The front door was terrible to open and most times it took some juggling of the key and pulling the door to actually get it open. The shower was dreadful. The water barely trickled out and one minute was extremely hot then the next it was really cold. We also noticed in the visitors book that these things have been mentioned before. Kitchen very old fashioned and some windows in need of replacing. The owner could do with shutting it for a couple of weeks and bringing it into the 21st century.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner was sorry to hear that you struggled with the the front door, it was not something they were aware of. With reference to the the shower the number of the house keeper was in the property information booklet and they would have been only too happy to assist with any issues you had. The kitchen is only 5 years old and is in good working order and the owner currently has no plans to replace it, we are sorry that it was not to your liking. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Set within the pretty village of Coniston, fronted by a small courtyard, and with access to walks right from the doorstep, is Greenbeck Cottage.

Ideal for a family of five, two couples and friends, this attached cottage offers a cosy interior with an open fireplace, dining area for enjoying home cooked meals and plenty of storage space.

With private off-road parking for one car, and some additional guest spaces available, arrive safely into this homely accommodation.

To the left is the sitting room.

Gather together after a day of exploring and get snug and warm in front of the bright orange flames as you enjoy a film on TV.

Across the hallway is the kitchen, with a seating area for 5 to join around a farmhouse table.

The fitted units and sleek worktops assist with cooking preparations throughout your stay, while the slimline dishwasher helps with the cleaning up.

Upstairs are a set of nicely presented bedrooms, served by a white bathroom.

Views over the patio to the rear of the property stretch across the green fields and over to the Coniston Fells.

The garden backs onto a fenced babbling beck and occupies a barbecue enjoying alfresco lunches on a sunny afternoon.

Bring your four-legged friends along and let them enjoy the long walks and fun-filled activities as well.

Some of the most beautiful scenery engulfs this property, making it a splendid base for touring the area.

Pay a visit to Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere, with shops, pubs, woodland trails, cycling routes, boat trips and so much more!

For those looking for something more energetic on the water, the lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing.

Climb Scaffel Pike, visit Tarn Hows and try delicious local ales at the many watering holes scattered all over this wonderful region.
