  • "The cottage was perfect, with everything we needed."

    The views are spectacular and the walk into Coniston takes about 10 minutes. Could not recommend this place more highly. We will definitely return!

  • "What a lovely little cottage in a beautiful setting."

    The owner had thought of everything and more for the perfect stay! We loved the view of course, the garden out the front is fabulous but the little touches like the handbook with some really useful advice on the area, the welcome pack and all the kitchen equipment was five star! Already recommended to friends and family. Also thanks to Sykes for the phone call checking everything was great, never had this level of customer service before, a really good experience.

    Thank you for such a positive review - I am thrilled that you had a lovely stay and enjoyed the cottage. I hope that you return soon! Property Owner

  • "Lavender cottage is beautiful, we enjoyed spending time in the garden, the views are spectacular and outdoor seating both at the top and bottom levels of the garden perfect."

    The parking pass is excellent, we used in Hawkeshead. I think it would be a good idea to mention this in the cottage description, as there isn't much space for parking right next to the cottage. However with the pass there are a few good options close by. We did manage to park on the banks, next to the cottage the 4 nights we were there. The cottage was perfect size for us and our little dog, had everything we could have wanted and more. Welcome pack was amazing! We appreciated it all. Only one slight issue we had was the front door, very difficult to open and lock. Also a few of the internal doors stuck at times, just minor things that could easily be put right, and didn't effect the enjoyment of our stay. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage and will definitely be back.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback - sitting in the garden is one of my favourite things to do at the cottage so I'm pleased that you had the weather to sit out and appreciate the views! I am having the doors looked at on Friday so hopefully the lock will be less stiff soon... Property Owner

  • "Lovely place for a weekend stay in the summer."

    Comfortable furnishings and obviously newly decorated, pictures probably understate it. Good shower with hot water enough for 4 of us. Fabulous views from the garden. Was slightly concerned about parking but the Old Station Car Park is an easy couple of minutes walk and owner has provided a permit (we didn’t know this so had paid for 24h parking but at £9 was good value). No EV chargers in Old Station Car Park but the ones in other car parks didn’t seem overly busy. Probably not an issue 90% of the year but maybe a fan for each bedroom might be good for nighttime, we were reluctant to open windows as a few midges around!

    Thank you for your review - I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found it comfortable. I hadn't thought of needing a fan as it has never been hot enough for me to need one when I've been there so thank you for letting me know; I have now ordered some so that other guests will have the option to use them when they're there.
