  • "We had the loveliest time at Laithe Cottage."

    The cottage itself has everything you could need for your holiday and was a great warm base camp after a long day out in the Lake District. To my complete surprise my partner and I got engaged during our trip which makes it even more special for us and we will always remember this holiday. The wine and chocolate on arrival was used straight away to celebrate

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Laithe Cottage."

    The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and the hot tub was brilliant. You are very secluded and it’s nice to be in the middle of no where to escape from day to day life. The views are fantastic! Ulverston is only a short drive away which is ideal to top up on supplies. We would definitely recommend a stay here!

  • "Beautiful cottage and a stunning setting."

    Very comfortable and cosy. Really good beds too. Shower needs some work, mould on silicone which is an easy fix and shower drain did overflow onto the bathroom floor. All in all though a lovely property in a great location.

    Plenty of space for the kids to run around .The cottage was very clean ,lovely comfortable beds it had everything you would possibly need.plenty of parking with its own drive and the hut tub ,sitting out area is huge . Set in a very quiet area a few miles out of Ulverston it was so peaceful and quiet.but not too far away to go for some lovely pub meals in Ulverston. There was just a couple of things we could not find or work .maybe more instructions would be helpful For the hot tubs hosepipe tap location and how to work it , the cooker hob and hot water timer.but other than that everything else was OK. The location is perfect as a base to visit so many amazing places in the lakes and the seaside We all have a great time and would definitely recommend and stay there again .

  • "A very enjoyable stay and a lovely cottage to base ourselves in."

    The cottage is very well equipped and the kitchen and garden were larger than expected. The shed was excellent for bike storage and the hot tub was most welcome at the end of the day. Ulverston is a short distance away and very convenient for any supplies. Lakes Coniston and Windermere are nearest and easily accessed. At this time of year (end April/early May) the area was uncrowded and traffic very light on the roads around the lakes which made life easier. The family enjoyed their stay and get together. A very peaceful setting with lots of birdlife. Highly recommended.

Even though the cottage is one on a complex and others were occupied it was still very quiet and peaceful.

  • "Although we had a brilliant stay, this was somewhat spoilt by the accusations of damage to a radiator at the property."

    We treated the property with respect and left it in a clean and good condition like we found it. There was no obvious damage to anything, other than a water glass, which we documented and reported, whilst we were there. I am sure the alleged radiator "hanging of the wall" would have been obvious to us if indeed it was in the property while we were there. We were very upset to have unfounded claims made against us, and Sykes trying to take money from my account before they had even asked if we were aware of any damage. We feel victimised by the owners and very disappointed in the way it was handled by Sykes. It has left a very bad taste.

    We enjoyed a friendly daily visit from Sid the cat and Cyril the dog. The cottage was spacious and exceptionally clean with plenty utensils, pots etc in the kitchen and towels in the bathroom. We stayed in the upstairs bedroom and it would have been very useful to have an upstairs toilet, however, a few stairs down to the ground floor toilet was no problem at all. The bathroom was spacious with a fantastic shower. We enjoyed a meal at the Mill Inn in Ulverston and we got a takeaway delivery from Aroma Indian restaurant which was excellent. We had an AMAZING breakfast at Poppies in Ulverston but they also do lunches and evening meals - definitely worth a try! We all very much enjoyed the outdoor space and hot tub at Laithe Cottage and we were very impressed with the way that, although there were other cottages, they are built in such a way that there is privacy in the garden area. The staff who attended to the grounds and cottages were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely visit Laithe Cottage again!

    It’s quiet and peaceful. The jacuzzi is superb. It’s really nice to dip after a tiring day and even If It’s raining. You will always have something to do. The only problem I noticed is the sound proofing of the room downstairs and the room above. We didn’t had a good sleep because we can hear loud and clear every time someone is talking above our room, even if they are just whispering. We can hear their snore at night. We need to get drunk and get knocked out so that we can have a good sleep. But aside from that It was very nice place to stay.
