  • "A great place."

    A large living room where the whole family rested after numerous hikes. Wonderful surroundings, magical landscapes. We fell in love with this house and the surrounding area so we will definitely come back to this place.

  • "Sadly this cottage was not as clean as we would have expected, there were old dog biscuits on the floor in the kitchen, dog hair on the sofas and living room carpet."

    The other thing the owners need to be careful of is the flowers in the kitchen, they were very pretty but one of them was a member of the nightshade family, they are poisonous.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely spacious property."

    Shop, pub and chip shop/Chinese takeaway all 5 mins walk away in the village. The living room was fantastic to sit and relax after being out and about with our dog. Would definitely stay again in future.

  • "The property itself is of a good quality; comfortable, clean with great kitchen appliances."

    The conversion from a chapel to a dwelling is sympathetic with great use of stained glass. It does suffer from a few issues however,- other than the living room the bungalow is quite dark, there is no secure garden for dogs as green sides of the bungalow have a yard of space before walls and the front garden is mostly tarmacadam drive leaving a lawn of 4x4m of grass which is not protected from the road. On the road exactly opposite is a lay by which is used to park cars and as a rest stop for.lorries and vans, Sunday saw five cars/ vans and one.lorry parked up, each had drivers and passengers. One lady waved at me....

  • "The location of the property was perfect for exploring the area and going for walks."

    I would say if do have dogs there is no where secure for them to be outside as does advise a garden but this is at the front of the property which has no gates and leads on to a very busy road so do require to be taken out on leads each time Very comfy home and has everything you need for a short break

  • "Great conversation to a holiday home and everything done to a high spec."

    All the rooms felt spacious and airy. The central heating was more than adequate to heat the large rooms on the two days we had of freezing fog. Unfortunately we were surprised just how busy the B5277 was with traffic noise through out our stay. I think Judi in November describes the location well. We didn't witness any accidents but the lay-by opposite was used through the day by large tipper trucks crossing here rather in the narrow streets of the village. I think Sykes should review their description regarding the outside and location of the property to avoid disappointment. Bill Dec. 2021

  • "Beautiful conversion and very comfortable."

    However, the property description was somewhat lacking the reasons for which became obvious once we arrived. The photograph of the front of the property makes the outside area appear much larger than it actually is. It is on the corner of 2 residential roads, open at the front, facing on to a busy and fast moving road with a bus stop outside and what seemed to be a popular layby opposite. Consequently it is quite noisy with road traffic.. There were 2 minor traffic accidents directly outside while we were there. I specifically contacted Sykes about the security of the back garden for dogs and was informed that it was secure. Actually, there is no back garden. There is a path across the back of the property which when we were there had a full size ladder lying on the ground. This property is not suitable for children or dogs or those who would prefer some peace and quiet.

  • "Well thought out conversion of a chapel, lovely spacious rooms."

    Lounge is bright and airy. Lovely shower room/wc. Other rooms a bit gloomy. Due to its location and required access for parking, the garden is not enclosed and road is busy at peak times. Handy for local shops.

About the location

FLOOKBURGH

Cartmel 2 miles; Grange-over-Sands 3 miles.

A superb base to explore this interesting and beautiful area, the historic village of Flookburgh is set near the shores of Morecambe Bay on the outskirts of the magnificent Lake District. It is thought that the locally-caught Fluke fish take their name after the village, and once, Flookburgh was a popular resting point for travellers crossing the sands from Lancaster and still provides a home for cockle and shrimp fishers. Facilities in the village include two pubs, a grocery, a chemist, a Post Office and two food outlets. The Cumbrian Coastal Way footpath passes nearby and a short walk away from the village is delightful countryside, such as Humphrey Head, views of the bay, with its wading bird life, and Coniston's mountain range. A few minutes’ drive or a pleasant off road walk leads to historic Cartmel, with its beautiful Priory, popular race course, antique and gift shops, pubs and restaurants; including the Michelin Star-rated L’Enclume. Just over a mile away you will find the beautiful house and gardens of Holker Hall and also nearby you can try horse riding just six miles to the north at Bigland, or visit the Edwardian resort of Grange, which offers a range of hotels, restaurants, shops, a traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens and golf courses.
