  • "We had a great time."

    Super location for walking to hills/local shops/restaurants & the lake. The property was beautifully renovated. The upstairs bedroom became very warm so we were grateful for the fan provided. Unfortunately we couldn’t find the cushions for the garden furniture or the parasol. The beds & pillows were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed including a superb cooker/induction hob & instant boiling water tap. The bathrooms were of a high standard with excellent showers.

  • "Lovely modern, clean accommodation throughout."

    Great decor and good kitchen design. Fabulous outside seating area from kitchen with far reaching views. Just a shame that the lower annexe isn’t connected via an inside staircase to the main house. You have to go out through the front door - this was clearly stated in the holiday details so we were aware. And the only downside for us all (5 people) was having to share one bathroom as there are no en suite bathrooms.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Foxrock."

    A beautifully designed property with excellent facilities. The sun terrace was a joy as we had great weather. Would certainly recommend this property for a stay in bowness.

  • "My first booking with Sykes Cottages turned out excellent choice, customer services is second to none."

    However as for the property there was no Xbox console so kids could not play dissapointing, second bathroom access was not convienient otherwise everything was good we had a fabulous stay simply amazing. I would definately recommend Foxrock.

  • "Foxrock ticked all the boxes for us and was perfect for our first family get together since 2019."

    The facilities are excellent, the only minor drawback being that you can’t access the second bathroom without going outside, and the front door automatically locking itself which created a few panic moments with only one set of keys! The sun terrace is a fabulous addition and we sat outside most days, the property is perfectly located for all Lakeland activities and we made the most of our stay with SUP, Honister Via Ferrara, hill walking and running along the Dales way directly from the front door. We ate out several times and you can easily walk into Bo’ness or Windermere to do this.

  • "We stay in holiday cottages most years but have never stayed in anything of this standard."

    It was within close walking distance to both Bowness and Windermere and there was plenty of parking. The accommodation was furnished to an extremely high standard. With the weather being so good, we spent most of our time on the elevated sun terrace. The only downside we found is it’s popularity. We looked at rebooking straight away but as it is booked up until 2023, it seems a lot of people have enjoyed it as much as we did.

  • "Fantastic accommodation and brilliantly presented."

    Awesome location between Windermere and Bowness. The facilities are five star; the hosts have thought of everything you might need. My only observation, and it is not a criticism of the accommodation, is that the listing should make it clear that the second bathroom and utility room are in a separate annex not accessible directly from the main house. This was not an issue for us as a 5 person party however, it would be frustrating if you were a larger group with children.

  • "Fantastic weeks holiday at Foxrock, the property was outstanding and the owners have thought about so many little details that add that extra touch to your stay."

    Not often you get such a classy property that also allows dogs so it was perfect for us! Great location too, only a 5 min walk to Bowness.
