  • "We had a lovely stay at Wheatlands cottage it offered everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay."

    It is in a quiet location just off the centre of Windermere but not too far away from the centre where you can enjoy the shops and eateries of Windermere.

  • "Once again we have had a lovely week at Wheatlands Cottage in Windermere."

    Anne and David take pride in keeping the cottage at its best all year round. The cottage was lovely and clean, Nice and warm, Lovely soft towels and the bath is a bonus. Oh yes...Don't forget the homemade cake, We'd book again just for the cake! It is in a perfect location, About a 2 minute walk away from cafes, shops, bus stops etc and has its own private parking which is a big plus. Thanks so much again Anne and David.

    Thank you for your kind words. As regulars we always look forward to your visits. Never have we had guests help by sweeping leaves before - you are amazing and so appreciated! Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely comfortable cottage to spend your weeks holiday in."

    It is a real home from home. It has everything you need to make your stay relaxing. You are close to Windermere and all its amenities, and it’s just a short walk down to Bowness. We will definitely be booking a further stay.

  • "This is our first stay at Wheatlands although we have stayed a number of times at the owner’s other cottage."

    Both cottages are spotlessly clean and fully equipped for a self catering stay. The mattress is of high quality and very comfortable. Wheatlands is very conveniently located close to the centre of Windermere village. There is no need to use the car as the buses are frequent and stop nearby. The cottage is situated in a quiet lane and it is easy to walk to the lake if you are energetic. There is a sunny patio and last but by no means least the owner provides a delicious homemade cake to welcome you.

    It is always a pleasure to welcome you back. So glad you enjoyed your stay at Wheatlands Cottage. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage and so peaceful yet only a short walk away from town."

    Everything was so clean and the lemon cake very welcome to have with a cuppa after a day out. The owners have put a lot of thought into what people might want / need which was much appreciated. Coming out of the driveway is a bit of a challenge due to the narrow road / gateposts - certainly takes more than a three point turn. I would certainly recommend this lovely cottage and hope to return in the future.

  • "We have had a wonderful stay!"

    We were really pleased about the location of Wheatlands cottage. In the beautiful village Windermere, near by shops, restaurants and public transport, but with enough privacy and quietness. And at walk distance from the Lake and beautiful view points. We came from the Netherlands by train and travelled through the Lake District by bus. The bus stop near the cottage was perfect, with multiple busses stopping every hour! The cottage itself was really clean and all the facilities needed were there. The only thing we missed was an European power plug. Thanks a lot for the stay!

    Excellent location being just a short walk from Windermere village so easy for eating out in the evening. Private parking which is a must and a good base from which to explore all over the Lake District. Perfect for the two of us, thank you!

  • "We found the rooms very dark."

    We felt the outdoor patio was not attractive and light restricted by overhanging trees and the shed. The photo showing it in full sunshine is misleading as we sat out in the evening a couple of times but the patio claustrophobic with no attractive view. The location of the cottage is excellent being a hundred yards or so from the town centre and close to bus stops which we used a lot.

  • "A lovely well equipped cottage with everything in it that one could need."

    We just found it rather dark inside,and having to use the lights on returning ,even on a sunny day. The website picture in my opinion have the i.impression of a sunny quite spacious secluded sitting area,but in reality was a small damp dark area because of the fo!iage with no shed shown taking up space. It would have been nice to relax outside in the evening sunshine. The furniture and fittings were tip top and could not be faulted. Well done,we rea!ly enjoyed the stay.btinternet Colin neve.

    The cottage is very spacious and in a quiet location but minutes from Windermere village and a good location in general. Having private parking is also good as not all properties are able provide this and you can travel by car knowing you can park on your return. A nice cake was provided on our arrival and would certainly look to return next year.

  • "Check In and Check Out time seem a bit unfair as you lose almost 2 days of your holiday."

    Would hesitate to book somewhere again where check in is at 4pm and check out at 9.30am, especially as we were travelling by train so had no where to store our luggage and had to catch an earlier train home instead.

    I'm sorry you felt the check in/out times were not long enough. If visitors mobile number is available to owners we always text when the cottage has been cleaned usually by 1 pm (depending how it is previously left). With extensive Covid cleaning by the owners without time pressures to clean more than one cottage it can take up to 4 hours to clean and prepare your cottage which I think gives our guests peace of mind. We did in fact extend the check out & suggested left luggage at the station nearby. Thanks for the good feedback in the visitors book. Property Owner

    The property is of excellent standard and lived upto the advertisement. The owners went above and beyond to ensure we had everything at the property. I would rebook this property again and would highly recommend Sykes cottages. This cottage is a stone throw from Windemere centre and we were happy with the walk into Bowness however the bus runs back and forth all day so it is not an issue for less mobile. I was quite please to have my own bathroom in the cottage and let the other half use the en-suite; this is def a plus! Also the bike storage was ideal as is the parking. Perfect cottage for our break!

A timeless hideaway for two in wonderful Windermere!

Romance is in the very fabric of this stylish slate-built love-nest, and the quietly appointed location is still so close to the village centre that you just have to take a few steps to be in the heart of Lakeland life.

Upgraded with care to offer modern luxury without ever compromising on traditional charm, Wheatlands Cottage has all the hallmarks of a real Lakelovers favourite. Your glorious, detached Lakeland cottage features a cosy yet spacious open-plan living area, with that all-important warming wood-burner for snuggling up around, and direct access to the fabulous enclosed sun-trap slated patio garden, designed so that you'll never miss the chance for an al-fresco breakfast or an evening wind-down glass of wine together.

The opulent bedroom suite also offers access to the patio and superb natural light via the french doors, and your cottage benefits from two stylish bathroom facilities.

Superbly refurbished to add an indulgent contemporary chic to traditional Lakeland character, Wheatlands Cottage is the perfect tonic for weary minds and bodies!

Tucked away just off the very centre of Windermere village, Wheatlands combines a satisfying sense of peace with ultimate convenience.

The alluring restaurants, cafes and quirky shops that line the historic streets of this ever-popular Lakeland village are a short wander away, and indeed the sumptuous fare of Homeground Coffee And Kitchen is just round the corner; our tip for a hearty breakfast to begin your day's adventure!

Windermere has all you need for a thoroughly entertaining stay, and the surrounding area has endless attractions to discover. Adventuring is easy from this premium Lake District location.

Bowness Bay, with its famous steamers waiting to whisk you off on a cruise of beautiful Lake Windermere, is nearby, and to the north Ambleside is a walkers and climbers' paradise.

The whole of the southern and central Lake District is just a short car ride away, and the walking and mountain-biking potential from your very doorstep is simply unparalleled.

Orrest Head, School Knott, and Brantfell all rise up around Windermere village, and the picturesque, green Troutbeck and Lyth valleys are close by, too, with their winding lanes and dry-stone walls.

Come and cuddle up in welcoming Wheatlands Cottage, and experience the very best of the Lake District with Lakelovers!
