  • "This was a great apartment."

    Spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and sofas, top location. Kitchen facilities fantastic, not missing anything. The car parking space was good although a bit of a walk with heavy luggage so needed to temporarily park roadside to unpack before parking car. Recommended property

  • "The flat is lovely and very comfortable."

    It is well situated in the heart of Grasmere. However, we had issues with parking. The information said that parking was "just round the corner". In fact, it was five minutes walk away and too far to carry luggage. To unload the car, we stopped in a courtyard behind the flat. We were told by the owner that we were not allowed to park there and that we should stop on the road on a yellow line. We unloaded the car and then went to find the parking place. The instructions said we would find two garages and to park at the second one. It was getting dark and we could not find the garages so we had to park in a public parking area for the night. We found the garages the next morning and parked at the second one. However, the space was not generous and we managed to just fit in our Honda Civic. A bigger car would have been a problem. The flat was very comfortable and very pleasant but there were no instructions for the heating, dish washer etc. There was a large dish washer but no washing machine. The lack of information was annoying. We enjoyed our holiday but it could have been better.

  • "Great apartment in a great location."

    Clearly newly refurbished and modernised. Very comfortable but best of all very central for Grasmere and the Lakes in general. New cafe downstairs does great food and drinks and is clearly popular and opening times meant we weren't disturbed in the least. Will definitely go back.

  • "The property was fine but Sykes listed a washer/dryer."

    There wasn’t one in the flat. With two young children this was a problem.

  • "Overall we had an excellent holiday in Baker's Loft however, we have two comments to make."

    The most important is that the information given by Sykes Cottages about car parking is inaccurate and misleading. There is no on-street parking and no parking permit is provided. This should be deleted from your listing. Secondly, although generally the equipment was excellent we were concerned that there were no table mats (only coasters) to protect the dining table. Also there were no serving spoons (although there were many soup and dessert spoons!)

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a designated parking space for the property, we apologise if the instructions were not clear - we have revisited them and made them more accurate. We have made a note of the lack of table mats and serving spoons and will make sure this is rectified. We are glad that you had an excellent holiday and hope that you will visit us again soon.

  • "The apartment is centrally located in Grasmere with many amenities: cafes, restaurants, co-op, pubs and more."

    A lovely well equipped apartment, very comfortable and it even has a parking space. We were able to access walks from the apartment and also used the car to reach other lakes and fells. I would thoroughly recommend the accommodation. We had a great time.

Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century and Grasmere Lake, plus Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling.
