    All the facilities and equipment that we needed were there. It is an ideal location and the private parking is a great bonus, we did not use our cars all week. The owner was very helpful and we even managed to get into the property earlier which was great. I would certainly recommend this cottage and will return again. Thanks for everything Georgie

    Thank you so much for your super review & 100% rating it was a pleasure to have you stay at Sandown’s and I’m glad I could help with the special birthday celebrations. We look forward to welcoming you back anytime. Property Owner

    First floor “L” shaped lounge/dining room provided a great space to eat and to chill out. Yes the en-suite shower rooms are compact but they a perfectly functional and there was plenty of hot water. Georgie’s communication by email and text was excellent and in our case even whilst she was travelling on her own holiday. Also thank you to Georgie for a lovely welcome pack.

    Thanks Keith for your lovely comments, we are so glad you had a great week and also good weather - I am happy my order was fulfilled, ha ha!! We hope to welcome you back another time. Property Owner

  • "Sandown was the perfect holiday home for our 2 families."

    The house was exactly as described and the photos did not embellish it at all. The bedrooms were not huge but were big enough and with each room having it's own bathroom, it was ideal. The amount and quality of the public/shared space upstairs was more than enough for the 7 of us. The best part of the stay was the communication from Georgie which made us feel very confident that we had chosen the right place. Even though there were no problems, we were made to feel that if there was, she would have sorted it out for us. We would definitely stay here again.

    Thanks Daniel for your super review, we are so glad you had a great week in the Lakes and enjoyed staying at Sandown. We would be delighted to have you return, so hope to see you again in the future. Thanks again Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a superb holiday staying at Sandown."

    Brought back many happy memories of when I stayed here on numerous occasions when it was a b and b and belonged to the owner”s lovely late parents. The property is spacious, so ideally positioned that my parents who do have slight mobility issues could quite easily walk down to the lake and then they would get the bus back which stops directly outside the house. There were six of us and our dog and we found the house was ideal for us as a family. The owner is so lovely and we were made to feel very welcome with a lovely welcome gift and contact that if there was anything wrong we could contact her. Sandown and Kempton next door really are the perfect holiday cottages with parking directly outside and so handy for both bowness and Windermere. We loved the “upside down” accommodation as it was very warm but with the bedrooms being downstairs it kept them cool making it so ideal to sleep in. The living accommodation is spacious and serves well. We will most definitely be back to stay here. Thank you for a truly immense holiday.

    Thank you so much Dawn for your lovely feedback it was so nice to welcome you back after so many years and nice for you to make new memories with your family. It is also great to hear you enjoyed staying at Sandown and found the house clean and comfortable as this is something we try hard to ensure for all our guests. We will look forward to you staying with us again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Conveniently situated for access to Windermere, shops, buses and restaurants."

    Plenty of parking space. Lounge and dining area were spacious. On the downside there wasn't any pavement outside the property so you were straight out onto the road when walking. Not able to enjoy the outside space due to traffic noise. Accommodation did not reach expected standard of cleanliness, Placemats not clean, grill pan and oven very greasy and dirty, all showers in en suites very small and had black mould in them. The light switch on the wall of the single bedroom did not work and we had to change a blown bulb in the lamp. Kitchen equipment could do with updating.

    The house is located off the main road, which is advised in the website description and the pavement on the other side of the road goes all the way into the village. We take great pride in our high cleanliness rating, personally cleaning ourselves, so we are disappointed you did not mention anything as we would have been happy to resolve any issues for you. You did however, contact us about the bulb, not about a broken light and we replied straight advising where the bulbs were kept and offered to come and do this for you, but as we did not hear back from you, we assumed you had managed this OK. We do hope however, despite these few things, that you had a lovely week in The Lakes. Property Owner

    There were 4 adults and 2 children and we all felt we had plenty of space. The house is well resourced and very comfortable. The house is in an excellent location: you can be in the heart of Bowness in minutes and Windermere is only 20mins walk away. There is a bus stop just outside which is great for accessing the nearby towns in an open top bus! Georgie is a very thoughtful host and communication with her was excellent.

    Ideally suited to families/couples and having parking space for 4 cars is a bonus. Would have no hesitation in recommending this property. Only 1 minor comment, there was no baby gate at the top of the stairs and we had our 2 year old granddaughter there so we had to be careful but I am sure if we had asked the owners (who were excellent), a gate would have been provided.

    Thank you Carol for your lovely comments and 100% rating. We are so happy you had a nice stay at Sandown.

  • "Our stay at Sandown was amazing."

    There were 7 of us. My husband, myself and our daughter (11yrs). Both our sons and their partners. The bedroom set up was ideal, as we could all have our own ensuites. There was a very large lounge/diner upstairs where we could all relax together. Also a kitchen and laundry room with extra toilet. The house couldn't have been in a better location. Just a few minutes walk from centre of Bowness and the lake. With plenty to do close by. Altho we took some essentials with us, it wouldn't have been a problem if we had forgotten, because the owners had thought of absolutely everything. The accomodation was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking on drive( we had 2 cars but easily room for a couple more ) We arrived an hour before checkin time. We had already been told we could park up early allowing us to go into Bowness, however when we arrived,the owner Georgie, was just finishing up, so gave us the keys a bit early. She was very helpful and friendly. We paid a security bond ( quite understandable) which was returned to us as soon as we had left. We nearly always stay self catering and have stayed in some lovely places over the years. I can definately say that Sandown is up there in our top couple of places. We all had an amazing holiday and I would recommend Sandown to anyone. I hope we get to stay there again very soon.

  • "Great location between Windermere and Bowness, albeit there is noticeable traffic noise given the proximity to the road itself, very good parking, however, if you have a dog please note that there is no "enclosed" garden area to let your dog out of the house unattended, there is a small park/grass area over the road where you can walk them in the evening."

    En-suite to each bedroom, however, they are extremely small and challenging for any one with mobility issues with all but one bedroom having the wash basin in the room itself which is an indication of the size of the en-suite.

    Thanks for leaving your comments. Sykes do mention in our summary that our garden is not enclosed but like yourselves most guests with dogs use the park straight across the road if they wish to let their dogs off the lead. Only 2 of the 4 bathrooms in the house are smaller, images of some of them are shown on the property page but they are modern, clean and have a standard size shower, washbasin and toilet, so we hope that having all the bedrooms en-suite is a positive aspect about the house. We are sorry if you found them an issue as we were unaware that any of your party had mobility issues as the house is not advertised as suitable for reduced mobility or disabled access. But we hope that you had an enjoyable week exploring The Lakes and all it had to offer. Property Owner

  • "The house is in an idyllic spot and is well equipped."

    However, the description states ample parking and small patio area but did not mention that there is no enclosed outdoor space. We found this extremely challenging with a dog even though the house is very dog friendly. It was not relaxing plodding over to the park at 7am in my pyjamas nor at 10pm and we were fortunate that we had good weather. I would recommend this house to anyone staying without a dog, but I would suggest that dog owners think twice.

    Many thanks for your taking the time to leave your comments. We have asked Sykes to now actually add a summary note that we do not have an enclosed garden, as I would assume you did not notice we did not mention this when you booked, which is easily done with so much other information. We have many dogs staying at Sandown and most guests do use the park across the road as it is only a few seconds away. We are glad the rest of the house was satisfactory and we hope you had a great week in the sunshine. Property Owner

    One had very bad mould in the shower. I would have used the vacuum cleaner there had it not thrown out more dust than it picked up. Maybe it's time for a repaint. On a positive side having hot water and heating readily there was good. ----------------------- OWNERS REPLY We appreciate guests leaving feedback but on this occasion we would like to clarify the comment saying there was mold in one of the showers. Should the guests have looked in the house manual there is a maintenance note in the front of the book explaining that unfortunately some previous guests had spilt some permanent black hair dye in one of the showers and unfortunately this has stained the shower tray in addition to the trim so the whole thing will need replacing. As this is not a job that we are able to do within the short change over time we have on a Friday and we are fully booked for the year, it is a maintenance issue we will sort out when we close down for the winter. It is however, quite obvious that this is not mold but a bad stain as the bathrooms were fully refurbished in February of this year.
