  • "The parking is tight for 8 cars especially if you have bigger cars."

    There is no blind/covering in the room that sleeps 4 people in the side that has the Velux window so very bright in there - awake very early as it’s so bright. The hot tub was only really hot the first night. Apart from the above we really enjoyed our stay and had a fantastic time and the house and garden are really great plenty of space for everyone and there were 20 of us altogether. Would definitely recommend the house to anyone.

    We are a little bit disappointed by this feedback. The hot tub issue could have been easily resolved as occasionally the hot tub goes into economy mode and it takes two clicks to get it back into standard mode...With regards to the roof window it is the first time that we have had this complaint over the last two and a half years of trading, but we will look into this. And it is obviously the only room that has a roof window. Most of the time parking is ok, and usually four medium sized cars can be parked in the front and four in the back...Anyway, we are happy that otherwise his guest had a very enjoyable time.

  • "Lovely house - very clean and comfortable."

    Plenty of space for 12 people. Impressed by the kitchen gadgets/small appliances/cooking utensils available; really well stocked and made cooking for 12 easier! Despite the cold weather we made good use of the hot tub and sauna; both easy to use. Would love to stay here again - thank you!

    Thank you for this very positive feedback! We stayed in the property ourselves over New Year and that is when we decided that despite the fact that "old" cooker which was only 6 months old was not quite fit for purpose. So we decided to replace it and switch from gas to induction and have a larger oven. As a matter of fact we did the same with some of the beds and we now have one super king bed in the property as well as a king size plus new bedside lights. Trying to improve on what we have is very much in our DNA, so we love it when our guests comment on that. Property Owner

    We had great time I recommend it to any sort of family or friends get together its the best place to be we enjoyed our stay

    Thank you for this positive feedback. The truth is that we are not only engaged in running a few holiday lets - Eden Mill being one of them - for financial reasons and to make a living but also to give people a good and happy experience...so when people leave Eden Mill or our other properties with a feeling of joy and take this out into the world, then this will hopefully make a difference in the very difficult circumstances we are currently living in.

  • "This is our 2nd time at this property and it is great for our family gathering before christmas."

    It was difficult to get organised for the 9am departure but I understood until I called when we returned home as i thought i may have left a charger behind in the bedroom to be told they had not started cleaning as no one was coming in that day. This was very disappointing as an extra hour that morning would have been so much better especially in those circumstances.

    Generally it has been very challenging to get good and reliable cleaners in 2021and many cleaning companies are struggling for staff. However, I am very surprised to read this comment as we get contacted by Sykes on many occasions and we are trying to accommodate our guests as much as we can, especially as our new family run cleaning company has been very flexible as well. So next time you stay at Eden Mill - and we do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise - please contact us befiorehand and we will do our best to meet your needs. We are looking forward to seeing you again! Property Owner

    !!!!!!! This house is just amazing - clean / fab facilities and everything you need and more (love the amount of coffee cafeteria

    Well, this kind of feedback warms our souls and we thank you for that...we will try to continue to keep up the good work...and we recently introduced some new beds and bedside tables which we think look great...so hopefully next time you come and stay at eden mill we will get another OMG...!!

  • "We had a lovely time."

    Younger members thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and adults that and the sauna. The house was well equipped, and the owners and your agents very friendly and responsive whenever an issue occurred.

    Thanks for this nice feedback. Obviously in a large house such as Eden Mill there will always be some issues but we definitely try to be as responsive as we can and also try to preempt as many issues as we can...anyways, we do hope to welcome you back before long! Property Owner

    The outdoor area is particularly nice with a hot tub and a sauna, lots of outdoor seating and a bbq. Kendal town centre only a 10 minute drive away.

  • "Everyone in our party had a fantastic holiday and the house was wonderful and spacious and felt really homely."

    We enjoyed all the facilities and especially loved the soothing stream running in the garden with the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Great time had by all. Only points to note but it did not spoil our holiday are the following: 1. Cooker - when lit the flames shot out very far, potentially dangerous. 2. Extractor fan needs a new filter as grease was leaking down when we used it. 3. Dishwasher in the main kitchen needs attention as the spray arm has dropped, therefore not spinning on the wash and dishes not being cleaned. Also, the pull out tray does not glide smoothly causing the breakage of 1 wine glass an cereal bowl. 4. In the bedroom on the top floor with the fire escape stairs one of the knobs was missing from the bed which is potentially dangerous as the exposed edge of the metal is quite sharp. 5. A few buttons were missing on the sofas

    The kitchen came equipped with everything we needed and we were very grateful for all the fridge space too! Would definitely come back again :)

  • "We asked before we went if we could exit at 10 am due to being a large party including an 89 and one year old."

    The conditions changed after booking - we were told we had to leave at 9am. I emailed sykes twice before the holiday and was told no. We called sykes whilst we were there and the customer relations team were very unhelpful and refused to allow a 10 am leave. However, another sykes member of staff called whilst I was speaking on another phone to say that they had called the owner who was fine with us leaving at 10am. So nobody had even even asked the owner until we made complaints.

    The hot tub and sauna was amazing, the sauna was a bit tricky to get going but it was pretty straight forward! All the rooms were lovely and comfy, the kitchen was spacious (big enough for 20 of us!!). The lounge was a nice place to chill and watch a film with the fire. The location of the house was perfect, driving distance to the town Center Kendal, Windermere, Bowness and the train station Oxenholme if you wanted to get the train anywhere. Overall it was amazing! And I’d definitely recommend!! 10/10

  • "It would have been helpful for someone to show us how to use the hot tub The bin situation was awful."

    We arrived on Friday and the bin was full to over flowing. We created an extra 12 bin bags and there was no recycling facilities. Very poor.

  • "This is a gorgeous, really well equipped place to stay in a beautiful part of the country."

    There was plenty of space for all of us and lots of little places to have smaller 'get togethers' for kids, adults or families where we could play cards or board games or just read quietly. Then, when we wanted to have a big party for everyone on NYE, the dining room and living room allowed us to do that as well. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place for a large group of people who like a bit of luxury!

  • "Amazing house!"

    The only point I would make is there wasn’t enough toilet roll provided for a full weekend between 19 people! Sounds extremely trivial but that’s one thing you don’t expect to have packed/need to bring with you on a trip away.

  • "The house was fantastic, the only things that let it down slightly was the lack of parking, the close proximity to the road and some of the bedrooms had a little bit of a musty smell inside."

    Everyone loved it though, and I would definitely recommend as a fantastic house for big groups.

  • "Throughly enjoyed our weekend away with girls for a get together all 19 of us."

    House was very accommodating. Would suggest in future to leave some instructions on how to use any appliances in the house, for example we couldn’t get any hot water for showers on the mixer showers.(electrical showers fine), Couldn’t get hot tub up to temperature and once it once couldn’t maintain it. Would have also been nice to have some information on local amenities or recommendations for shops/pubs/activities. Punch Bowl pub 10-15 walk, Asda about 10min drive. Overall we had a great time and the house was clean, tidy and would come back again.

Perfect for a family get-together or a celebration with friends, Eden Mill is an exceptional property, comprising three floors of endless charm, and remarkable outdoor features.

A vestibule welcomes you inside to the comfy lounge, where you will be greeted by a collection of sofas/armchairs, and a woodburning stove to really set the scene.

The roomy kitchen is fabulously designed, home to a central island, with a helpful utility across the way, holding those extras you may need.

After preparing breakfast or dinner, the conservatory/dining space is where you will want to be, relaxing amongst the idyllic views of the stream which form a scenic backdrop to your quiet time.

As you reach the first floor, a mezzanine landing awaits, revealing a second living area with comfy seating, a small kitchen, and a farmhouse style dining space.
