  • "So this is definitely not a 1 bedroom apartment!"

    It is a studio apartment with a 3 foot wide Small Double Bed! Myself and my husband have used Sykes cottages previously and never been disappointed but unfortunately on this occasion we were. First the issue with the tiny only small ( size 10) my husband is not fat and average height build etc but we Really struggled with the tiny bed which only just it in the area partitioned off which was in my mind not a bedroom as only a partition wall which didn’t actually go to the ceiling and no door so you were basically sleeping in the lounge/ kitchen! We unfortunately had to take turns sleeping on the sofa so at least one of us got some sleep and thankfully the sofa is a decent size but definitely not meant to be slept on but we had no option. When we arrived I realised this is actually a converted garage ,which is fine but the dimensions are very tight and it’s rather gloomy ( depressing but we wanted to make the most of our holiday and payed double what we have in previous cottages ( pre Covid) so couldn’t afford not to try make it work. I entered the apartment and saw they had only left us 1 hand towel n 1 bath towel each ( which only just fit round my body and looked more like a hand towel next to my husband) so decided to call the owners to request a couple of bath sheets as 7 days with those would be another Issue! That was sorted immediately by the owner thankfully. Just a couple of other small things which niggled me was they hadn’t provided any wash liquid,no tea or coffee ,only 1 half used loo roll.The other cottages we have stayed at have always left a small amount of tea n coffee and a little food welcome pack like cookies ,cheap bottle of wine n dog biscuits etc so we we shocked that the apartment was so basic. There are some small things which we think could improve your stay like this and things like the tea n coffee cups were so tiny as were the drinking glasses,they didn’t have a cheese grater but loads of pans and other cooking utensils I didn’t think were useful in a holiday apartment. This apartment was in a good location and we would return to Bowness but would definitely Not return to this Studio apartment which should only be let out to single guests in the future,ideally with a small welcome pack with the basic provisions as we payed approximately £850 to stay in a garage n sleep on a sofa!! Very Disappointed ☹️

  • "This was a nice, modern, spotlessly clean flat, in the heart of Bowness, with easy access to the town, the lake and beyond."

    There were many positives, such as the excellent kitchen facilities, modern bathroom, the good size lounge area, the garden area and the fact that the flat was very warm. I am, therefore, reluctant to mention any negatives. However, it is important to be truthful when giving feedback. The bedroom area was very small and claustrophobic, with no room for a dressing table and without an accessible electrical socket, making it very difficult for hair drying etc. On a personal note, it was a problem for me, as I have a medical condition which means I have to plug in a machine at night while I sleep. I had to run an extension lead from the living room, which could have been a trip hazard in the middle of the night. The bed was hard and uncomfortable for me, although my partner found it ok, and I do realise a soft or hard mattress is very much a personal choice. Because the flat is built in a converted garage, it was dark with not much natural light coming through, and there was a lot of traffic noise because of the proximity to the main road. As mentioned earlier, there were many very good things about the flat, and the owners left us some mince pies and chocolate biscuits, along with tea/coffee etc., which was a nice touch, and made us feel welcome. The flat is very centrally located, and the fact that it is dog friendly is a big positive too.

  • "Overall Park View was great."

    It was an ideal location, decorated and finished to a high spec, had most things we needed there and deliciously warm in a cold wet November. That’s the bit to focus on. There are downsides. The design of the bed area is so wrong in many ways. It’s left the area too small and just not enough space for 2. And without extra bedding provided 1 of us couldn’t take up residence on the sofa to give more space. But what’s done is done. The owners aren’t going to move walls now. My advice to the owner would be if you could change the bed from solid divan to one with legs that would be a game changer as bags & cases could at least be stored there and not in the lounge. And more plug sockets in the bedroom area either side of the bed. More hooks would be hugely appreciated again to get things from being dumped around the lounge chairs or the floor. And a clothes airer is really needed. Every day we were coming back wet and we’re told there was a tumble dryer. But we didn’t want to put our hiking gear in there in case it damaged it. A clothes airer would have meant we could have put wet clothes in the shower to at least drip dry before moving near the fire to fully dry. Plus also we did do washing with the washer dryer and it took 3+ hours to wash & get dry and a couple of items of clothes shrunk in the process. What a terrible waste to the environment of all that electricity when clothes could have been drying in the toasty warm studio on an airer. But it was a great base and it was warm. We were lucky with some of the holiday makers above in that they were quite quiet, but others were not and we could hear everything. So when they had a cough keeping them awake all night - we got kept awake all night. So for future guests I’d suggest taking some extra bedding in case one of you needs to go on the sofa due to the space limitations of the bedding area & take some ear plugs to drown out the noise from holiday makers above. If you do that you’ll have the best stay here and I’d recommend on that basis.
