  • "Perfect little place and it would be a five star review, I came to get some peace and also do some work in the evenings."

    The internet connection was totally unusable though, took minutes to load a very basic web page. I'm aware this could just be the area, but I've stayed in rural homes before where it was at least usable! Couldn't really do any of the tasks I'd hoped to do as internet couldn't cut it. If you want a getaway which includes an escape from connectivity, this is the one for you! A beautiful cottage though and gorgeous surroundings.

    Thank you for your feedback. We always recommend guests check the suitability of a property for their needs prior to booking. We are glad that you enjoyed the property and all that the area has to offer. Lakelovers Owner Team Property Owner

  • "We had a very enjoyable week at Tullythwaite Gully."

    The property provided us with everything we needed for the week, in a quite location. We appreciated the welcome packs. Would recommend to anybody looking for a stay away from a tourist location but within driving or cycling distance.

  • "A brilliant, peaceful place to stay."

    Packed with all the home comforts needed. A really lovely holiday home and somewhere I would highly recommend. The following are not complaints, nor did either impact upon our stay . Please note: the freezer door catches on the side and was slightly wedged open when we arrived. It took us a while to discover this and so it began to over freeze. We ended up defrosting it and made certain the door closed tight. The freezer would be fine,if it could be moved slightly over but there is a piece of wood wedging it to one side. Also, the wood coverering pipes in the bathroom isn't fixed and tends to fall forward now and again.

  • "A lovely, peaceful cottage in a gorgeous location in the Lyth Valley."

    Really well equipped, with everything we needed, especially the kitchen, with induction hob, dishwasher, large under-counter freezer, as well as separate fridge, Miele washing machine and PLENTY of cutlery, glasses and crockery! Very comfy bed. Lots of local books and maps. Walks on your doorstep. Just a few minutes drive into Kendal and an hour from Keswick. So easy to explore so much of the Lake District. We've had a fantastic holiday - thank you.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments and review. We are glad that you enjoyed every aspect of your stay and all the area has to offer. We hope we can welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at the cottage, it was well equipped with everything we needed even a washing machine and freezer, all very clean."

    There was a welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits, enjoyed on our days out. It was very cosy and we felt right at home. We would definitely go again.

  • "A beautiful cottage with wonderful views from all windows."

    The upstairs living space is simply stunning - the photos do not do it justice (the upstairs flooring is wood rather than carpet shown in the photos and the TV has been updated to a large flat screen). It is much more spacious, bright and airy than we expected. The sofas and the bed are all very comfy and there is ample parking outside the cottage. There was no DVD player in the property despite the description mentioning that you can watch DVDs (and some are provided at the cottage), so bring your own if you plan on relaxing with a film - the upstairs area and bedroom do have smart TVs so you can access the usual apps with your accounts (BBC iPlayer, Disney plus, Netflix etc.). There were quite a few cobwebs around when we checked in, but you are in the countryside so it didn’t bother us too much. We also noticed dust underneath the sofas and tables and some of the utensils and glasses were not left very clean by previous guests, but the rest of the property was very clean and tidy. The shower is lovely and warm but we couldn’t get the hot taps in the kitchen, bathroom sink and the bath to heat up - however, being August this wasn’t too much of an issue either. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely return again!

  • "The cottage was fabulous and we both loved it."

    Really well equipped, comfortable. No complaints at all. Perfect! The only comment I would make was regarding putting out the rubbish. The instructions were to leave the rubbish in a bin marked "Cumbria waste group" (or similar) but we could not find this bin, so the guidance needs an update.

    we were pleased that we were able to use our mobiles in the cottage as the service was not very good in some of the local areas we would highly recommend using this cottage...

  • "No dishes to cook anything in, no baking tray, fring pan in bad state, no mattress protector on one of beds, lamps in bedrooms look very very old and tatty!"

    Stains on towels, luckily bought our own! All in all not what I paid for! Emailed Sykes a few times after their responses, since last email I sent over a week ago..no reply. Pretty disgusted. Would not recommend.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear of these deficiencies raised. All our properties are fully equipped however some items do get damaged, need replacing or go missing. Between the Lakelovers team, the owner and yourselves we have now resolved all issues. Kind regards Lakelovers Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, fabulous location ideal to get anywhere on the lakes or surrounding area, but just a few negative points."

    Generally cleanliness of the cottage is below par and looks like it could do with a good clean and revamp in general (lick of paint, up-dated furniture etc.). There was also a problem with wasps (which was mentioned in the visitors book by another visitor), my dad was stung on the first night in the cottage (luckily he had no adverse reaction), all through the holiday we amounted quite a collection of dying wasps, no idea how they were getting in (but there had been mention of a nest in the book..... maybe need to get somebody in again to get the problem sorted).

The property

"This spacious Grade II listed Lakeland barn is a real find in the lush setting of the Lyth Valley, close to the village of Underbarrow, with its rather nice local pub: The Black Labrador.

Enter through the hallway, on the ground floor, and where the bedroom is located: 1 Super - king.

Lovely separate bathroom with rustic wood panelling and shower over bath.

Head upstairs to the open plan living space, encompassing the well-equipped kitchen, living room and dining room.

This large, bright space features locally commissioned wrought ironwork fittings and wooden furniture set in lovely A-frame oak beams.

Surrounded by fabulous views of the Lyth Valley - this is a true picture postcard setting with wonderful walks in every direction and if you want to stay close to home, enjoy the small garden with its seating area.

Explore the surrounding lanes and byways, drop in at the excellent traditional local pubs, or take day-trips to nearby Bowness, Lake Windermere and beyond.

The Lyth Valley is a gorgeous rural area, scattered with traditional Lake District country cottages and farms.

Wonderful traditional pubs with good food and great ales abound, including the Punchbowl at nearby Crosthwaite.

The surrounding Lyth valley is well-known for its Damson harvests and is decked in Damson blossom in spring.

Great Walks start from your doorstep.

You can choose from gentle strolls along winding paths and lanes to dramatic walks on Scout Scar and Whitbarrow Scar.

The views across the Lakes and neighbouring counties from these bracing but manageable walks are stunning.

Underbarrow lies between Kendal and Bowness, and is very easily accessible from the M6.

The popular tourist town of Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere are only a short drive away "

Crosthwaite is a small village set in the picturesque Lyth Valley, famous for its damson trees, and boasts a lovely pub known nationally for its excellent food. The lakeside towns of Windermere and Bowness are nearby, with plenty of activities, interest and entertainment for all ages. Also within easy reach is the popular market town of Kendal, an historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping. Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent.

Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden, are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.
