  • "Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable."

    Unfortunately the hot tub was cold for our entire stay and we didn’t have hot water on the night of arrival. Some came to look at this for us whilst we were out the following day, we manage to get one hot shower before the water went Luke warm again. Would recommend if the hot tub and hot water troubles would guaranteed to be fixed. Lovely views from the cottage too

    Absolutely beautiful cottage, gorgeous location, very relaxing. Loved how close this cottage was to the beach. Hot tub was fab and stayed heated for a long term. Fab facilities, had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook meals and was just a very comfortable stay, felt like a home away from home. Super clean and just an all round perfect stay. We already cannot wait to return. The only thing I could fault was there was only 1 toilet roll left for our stay and 1 bin bag, could have done with a few more of these as we had to go out and buy some but not a big deal at all !! Thank you for a perfect stay

    The cottage inside was different to pictures. And pictures of outside are manipulated to look good but in fact on main road and facing a residential house. The cottage was tidy but smelt unclean and the hot tub did not work it was barely warm. We travelled 2.5 hours to this cottage and left straight away. We didn’t wish to stay. Date 21/04/23

    Tv's may be flat screen but very old and no smart TV option. Grout on patio and in shower really poor, sharp edges in places. Hot tub was great and our main reason for staying at this location.

  • "The snowdrop cottage was amazing!"

    It was so nice inside and out, had mostly everything you needed. The only 2 things we were disappointed about was the shower was scorching hot! No matter if you turned it to the "coldest" temperature, it was still scorching hot. It was really hard to take a shower as it was burning the skin! Also the hot tub wasn't reaching the temperature it should of and was cold. I rang them to see if someone could come and fix it and they said yes. 3 days later, the night before we was leaving, they came to fix it. So the morning we was leaving we checked it and it was on the max temperature we wanted it to be on the first day of our holiday not the last. Disappointing as the cottage is really nice and we didn't want to flaw it at all!

    Our bedroom tv wasn’t finding any channels despite troubleshooting from ourselves and also that the kettle didn’t work unless you held button down to boil water, I rang the property owner who advised they would have someone out to fix the shower 11am the following day and take a look at tv and replace kettle, 11am the following day came and no one showed up we left at 11am and left the key in the designated area so the maintenance person could gain access to the property in case they showed up later in day when we were out, upon our return that evening we learned that nothing had been done to fix any of the issues raised, had this been done then the rating would have been higher.

  • "We visited this cottage recently for a short break."

    We arrived and it was 30 degrees, the heating was not needed to be on. The glasses in the cupboards were dirty and greasy, we had to was utensils and trays before being able to use them. The property was extremely difficult to relax in as we felt over-watched by the people staying next door to us, and they could see through the fences when we were both in our hot tubs. It did not feel private. Our major problem was that we had booked our dog into kennels as the cottage stated it did not allow pets. However on the second evening of our stay a couple arrived with two dogs and were there a couple of days! Not sure how this was fair? they also woke us up at 6am two mornings arguing and screaming loudly, we believe they may have known the owners as they looked to be doing work on the property too. We were not happy. We also drank water from the cottage and myself and partner became poorly we have taken images of the water! It was NOT clean, these will be sent to the owner. We had to post this feedback on here as we looked in the guest book and a lot of pages had been ripped out and only good comments were left so we presumed this would have been ignored if it was left in the book so we have added it here in the hope someone makes use of this advice. Lastly the cottage is in a lovely spot with great scenery and there is lots to do with the beach not too far away, however sadly we will not be returning.

    Thank you for leaving your review for Snowdrop. The property rarely has cleanliness complaints and the review before yours mentions the property as spotless. There was a worker on site during your stay, the dog was not allowed in the property and was only present for a few hours in the afternoon, he would also dispute that he was kept awake from your stay. There has been no other complaints about the water on site, it is mains water which runs through all properties and the village. I thank you for your comments and have taken them into consideration.

  • "Not clearly advertised."

    It should be advertised as a ground floor apartment rather than a cottage. We were in snowdrop cottage. Cosmetically it looks really good & very modern. Instructions in regards to where the accommodation is located initially seems clear but when you’re driving past the place it’s very easy to miss because the images shown on the website don’t match up the actual external entrance steps leading to the property. We had to drive around & knock on the doors of at least 4 peoples houses before someone finally sent us the right way. The property looked clean upon first appearance. When I lifted the bed covers back to look inside the bed it was covered in lots of hair. I had to use the washing machine to get it clean again before we could use it again. The washing machine was combined with a dryer. The dryer function was so hard to use every time you tried using the dryer function alone it would start washing again first. I put the wash on at 8pm and it was 6am in the morning before we got half the bedding dry & got in bed. The dishes inside the drawers had food stains & remnants on them. The heating couldn’t really be controlled properly. When we turned it on coz it was cold we’d be waiting for hours and it still wouldn’t warm up. However around 11pm & throughout the night it would be boiling hot throughout the whole place even when we turned it down & opened the double patio doors to cool the rooms down. There was no windows inside the bedroom that could be opened. The patio area wasn’t very secure as someone could walk up the stairs from the main road & walk around the house & onto the patio as there were no gates.

    ... but on the front of the folder( good walks but little else of use ) was the leave time in bold letters. The location and quality of cottage was excellent, but we didn’t get what we expected.... a hot tub .... more a hot bath!! Whilst your staff were lovely to speak with, there wasn’t the required action. We contacted you a few times but without satisfaction. It was only luck that we were in when the indomitable Tim came on the Monday .... the problem was a current one ... the heat switch.... by Wednesday, he persevered to get us a workable system so we could enjoy the jets even though it kept switching off. Seems the issue was the owner wasn’t in the country which let to your impotence!? Bottom line is if there wasn’t a fully functional hot tub, we would have never booked the cottage. Oh.... but we were clear on what time we had to vacate the premises.... which was reinforced by a follow up text from Sykes !!!!

    The hot tub is amazing and the views are lovely you can see the beach in the distance and you are situated right next to a field full of cows and sheep. We had a peaceful stay. It is situated in the perfect position for exploring everywhere we wanted to in the lakes. Windermere is around a 40 minute drive and the same for Coniston both worth a visit. The cottage has everything you can need, bed super comfy too. We had a slight issue on our final day when we got back to the cottage in the afternoon the hot tub was on however none of the buttons were working and the screen was blank, we rang all the numbers provided in the information book and left messages, we never got a response so instead we turned it on and off and it seemed to do the trick. Later on someone called to check on the hot tub for us which was great service they double checked it all for us and wished us a great final night. All in all perfect stay, service was amazing, would highly recommended.

    When the above apartment is occupied you can hear EVERYTHING. The neighbours front garden and patio is right in front of this apartments kitchen window...bizarre. Hot-tub was nice with great views, however, not always private as when there's a turnover in the other apartments, access to make their rooms up and check their hot-tub is via this apartments patio and hot-tub area. Took them over 2 1/2 hours with comings and goings and wires plugged in before we could use the garden privately again. Lack of attention to detail, small things but annoying things - no shelves in bathroom, no hand soap, not enough towels provided. Didn't sleep well because of noise upstairs, WILL NOT RETURN.

    However, the main reason we booked this cottage was for the hot tub and it was not working. As soon as we arrived we turned the hot tub on as it was a lovely evening for sitting out but after an hour the hot tub had not heated up by 1 degree even. We gave it another hour and the temperature had still not changed. I messaged someone and they said put the hot water in which did help it a little, however, we didn’t want to over flow the water. We could not use the hot tub the first night. The next day was the same and someone finally came out at 5pm and said it was broken. I messaged the owner explaining how unhappy I was and they didn’t even reply. Service was terrible. Also, you only one toilet roll (we were staying 3 nights) and the outside furniture needed a good clean before we could use it. Overall, for the price we paid, we expected more.

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re very sorry that you didn’t have use of the hot tub during your stay. We did our very best to resolve this for you, but despite our best endeavours, as a new part had to be ordered we were sadly unable to fix it before your departure date.

The people above were so noisy and it meant we could not have any lie ins as we could hear there every movement and even them singing in the mornings. Also the kitchen window is in there garden so every morning we had to keep the blind shut as the children were out at about 7.30 every morning playing football facing our kitchen.

  • "Myself and my partner are just back from a lovely week at this cottage."

    We landed lucky and had great weather to go plenty of walks and do plenty of activities. The best part about this cottage was by far the hot tub, we loved coming home to relax in it. We also loved waking up to the view of cows right beside us in such a quiet, peaceful setting. We do have a few minor complaints that could have improved the stay; firstly no hand soap was provided in the bathroom, there was no bath matt to come out of the shower on to, the floor can be particularly slippy and with only 2 towels provided it was not ideal having to use one for the floor. Second there is a bin in the house but no form of recycling? And finally our power completely cut out late one night. We phoned to complain at 8.30am the following day and had someone respond and visit the house within half an hour, great response, all power was turned back on apart from the lights which kept tripping - Only issue then being that an electrician was required which we were told would be out that day and they did not arrive, meaning we were in complete darkness all night and into the following day. An electrician then came at 4pm the following day and did sort the issue. Biggest complaint and advice to owners would be to add a lamp into the living room, at night you do not want to be sitting with the full ceiling lights on and also don’t want to be eating dinner in this bright lighting, no ambiance at all. A lamp would make the lighting so much better and would make having a dinner more enjoyable. Overall we did enjoy our stay and we would just have appreciate these small adjustments to have made it perfect.

    . The view from Snowdrop cottage is stunning. I know the coast road well and have family in the area and it was in the perfect spot. Your a few miles up the coast road to Roe Island and you can take a boat for £5 return to Peel island. Down the road is the little village of Bay cliff but if you go to Aldingham before hand go past the church and go down on the beach. Fantastic views. There is plenty of scenic views along the coast road including the well known Roys icecream. Take a small car journey into Ulverston fab for shops cafes bars gift shops. The Hoard known as the Pepper pot it's an amazing view from the top, Cartmel is a beautiful village withall little gift shops. Take a ride round Windermere going through BowNess upto Ambleside and then down through Coniston water. Drive into Dalton in Furness and have a meal and the fantastic Brown Cow it's has a beautiful garden. Don't forget my favourite Furness Abbey an 11th century wonder. It's said Henry V111 attacked the abbey and slaughter most of the monks the rest hid in secret tunnels. Some are believed not to have been found yet. The cottage itself was lively decorated and the little hearts around the cottage made you feel happy and welcome. I definitely recommendon't this cottage. The cows come and see you in the garden. The hotel tub is amazing and placed in a great position to look out on the beautiful countryside. What your waiting for book now you won't regret it

  • "The cottage was average - not the usual standard of luxury we know from Sykes."

    There are a number of things that could easily be done to elevate it to luxury. It feels unloved, like a property that has been purposefully done up to let to the holiday market, but by someone who hasn't ever stayed in it to see what works and what doesn't work and possibly by someone who has never stayed much in holiday cottages themselves, so don't know the small things that make a big difference. For example, no shelves in the bathroom, so absolutley nowhere to put toiletries - that kind of thing just makes life tricky when you should be relaxing and not having to think about a problem to overcome - I appreciate it's a first world problem not being able to put your lotions and potions anywhere, but it felt like a battle. Another example of lack of thought was the freezer which is inside a kitchen cupboard, but not fully integrated. That in itself isn't a problem, but the door of the freezer opens in the opposite direction to the door of the cupboard it sits in. Coupled with the placing of the dining table and chairs, it was a battle every time we wanted to just get some ice out of the freezer as the cupbaord door had to be fully open to be able to open the freezer door and the dining table is in the way of the cupbaord door so that had to be shifted. It shouldn't feel like a battle to do stuff - real life has enough problems to overcome and holidays are an escape from real-life. The freezer door can bu hung easily from the other side making it much easier to get into. Other nice touches that would enhance the property - lighting. The living room/kitchen has two extremes of lighting - nothing or a runway of really bright spotlights, so sitting watching TV at night, reading or eating dinner at the table would be much cosier and ambient with a couple of lamps to provide an inbetween option. The sheet on the bed wasn't quite the right size for the mattress and it kept popping off and was really hard to put back on - all these things sound trivial even as I write them, but when you get a property where these things are right, you don't notice them, all you notice is how much of a good time you're having and how lovely the property is. When they're wrong, they focus your thoughts on the annoyances and there were a number of those that could be easily fixed if someone with an eye for detail took a practical look around. There were no details of how to recycle in the Property Information Booklet and there didn't appear to be different bins anywhere, just large black refuse bins - I found this surprising in this day and age. We took our recycling home with us. The description suggests a walk to Baycliff for a drink or food in the Inn, but I don't belive this should be included in the description - it's a 3.5 mile round trip on a very busy road - we love walking so the distance wouldn't necessarily put me off, but I don't think walking on such a busy and pavementless road, especially at night, would be very sensible - there may well be a public footpath across the fileds, but that wasn't obvious even with the maps we took - if there is a path then the proprty infomation booklet would benefit from this addition, otherwise remove the walk to Baycliff from the description or make it more accurate about what type of walk a trip to the pub would be. We really nejoyed the holiday, it was a good location for exploring the Lakes, but we would stay in Coniston or Grasmere next time - much prettier and definitely walking distance to a pub.

  • "I am very disappointed with our stay at this cottage and the service provided by the owners."

    The cottage itself is fine and was clean. Unfortunately, we selected to stay at this cottage ahead of countless others due to the hot-tub. We found out on our second day that the hot-tub was not working, and despite numerous calls nobody got in touch until the final day of our stay. Nobody came to look at it, and it meant that by this point we were not able to use the hot tub at all. This was a romantic anniversary weekend, and it was incredibly frustrating that we were unable to use the hot tub (the main reason we stayed here). I acknowledge that things like this happen, what I am upset about is the fact that after one text message back on the following Monday asking what we thought would be fair as a refund, the owners have failed to respond to any of my calls, texts or e-mails or attempted to offer us anything as a means of apology. We are now 5 weeks on. When you've paid a decent ammount for 3 nights on the basis of a cottage with a hot-tub for an anniversary weekend, and you are not able to use the hot-tub, you would at least expect some form of compensation. Upsetting.

About the location


Ulverston 5 miles.

On the coast looking across to Morecambe Bay is the small village of Aldingham, said to have once been a mile long but, as legend says, many of the early cottages were washed away by storms and tidal waves. Aldingham had the reputation of being a smugglers’ village, with brandy from France and tobacco from America supposedly hidden in the church crypt. The village is close to the spectacular Furness Abbey, and the ancient market town of Ulverston is just 5 miles away, and still has an authentic feel and community spirit. The town boasts a street market every Thursday and Saturday and many festivals throughout the year, including an amazing lantern procession in September and a superb Dickensian weekend on the last weekend of November. It is also the birthplace of Stan Laurel and home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world! With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park and the sandy beaches and good birdwatching of the Furness coast close by, this quiet and peaceful area has plenty to offer!
