  • "Lovely quiet cottage."

    Nice big rooms. Very comfy bed so we had a good sleep. Good to have an eat in kitchen since we mainly ate in although all of the knives were blunt.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Appreciate you letting us know about the knives, we will get them sharpened! Property Owner

  • "The cottage is absolutely lovely, well decorated,with original features, and was very clean."

    The rooms are spacious and larger than they appear in the pictures. Set in a tranquil village, it was a welcome break from a day exploring the busy Lake District. I left the car in the parking spot at the rear of the cottage and travelled around by bus which was really easy to do. I loved staying here!

  • "This was a beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful location, it is close to The Lakes and also coastline."

    Leven Hall is definitely worth a visit. Neighbours very friendly. Would have been nice to have a welcome pack and a couple of dishwasher tablets!

    We have tried a few cottages with Sykes Cottages and i would have to say that this is the best cottage we have stayed at 10 out of 10 Brill

  • "This is a great cottage."

    The pictures don't do it justice and we had a great week. It's light bright and well equipped. Its a great base for exploring The Lakes.

  • "The property was excellent, it is very well fitted out and very roomy."

    Parking is fine but a little tricky getting out on to the main road due to visibility. The property is right next to a graveyard which is interesting. Not many street lights or paths in the village which makes it difficult walking the dog on an evening. Ideal position to explore the Lakes and coast. Very happy to recommend this property which has some very interesting history and will hopefully stay there again.

  • "We thought that St."

    Peter's cottage was just marvellous!! A beautiful combination of modern amenities along with some wonderful traditional features that had been retained. Our kids wanted us to buy it and move there!!! There were so many nice touches, like the little welcome box and the list of 'Top 5's' that it really made our stay special. We will definitely be returning on, hopefully, the very near future.

  • "It was a lovely well equipped cottage in a small village close to many local attractions."

    The cottage was clean on arrival with generous size rooms and beautifully decorated. There is one parking space at the back of the cottage which was ample for my small/medium hatchback but may be a tight fit for larger cars. Overall we had a lovely week.

  • "Excellent cottage - very comfortable with good quality furniture and soft furnishings."

    Quiet village but well-placed for main roads to get you where you need to go. One small gripe - there was the usual 3 saucepan set plus one frying pan - a large deep sauté pan or wok would be useful for cooking pasta sauces ext for 4-6 people.

  • "Lovely cottage very clean and comfortable the owner have provided all amenities."

    We were staying in the area to go to a family Christening with a couple of sightseeing days also. The only negative thing I can say is there was no welcome pack provided for us just wondered if it was because we only stayed 3days and not the full week?

    Thank you for your feedback, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found our cottage comfortable and well equipped. My apologies you didn't receive a welcome pack on this occasion. This was unfortunately an oversight by the cleaning team and not related to your length of stay as we do provide them for all of our guests regardless of how many nights you book. Kind regards, Sarah Property Owner

    Very homely, clean and all amenities included. The bedding was crisp and clean. A lovely area with lots of walks and places to visit. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Really appreciated the housekeeping box left in kitchen and thought the welcome pack with biscuits milk and sugar was a lovely thoughtful touch.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Peters Cottage and found it to be a great base to travel to various places around the Lake District."

    The property was very well equipped with all the essentials you needed. Given the age of the property, it was surprisingly spacious, especially the downstairs areas. We stayed in the larger of the bedrooms and found the duvet just slightly too thick and heavy for us but that is personal preference. Overall, we’d really recommend this property and would stay again. Be mindful that it can be quite a tight squeeze to get to the parking space at the rear of the property, but a careful and steady driver will have no problems!

  • "The cottage exceeded our expectations both in terms of size and quality."

    It was also ideally situated to access all parts of the Lakes. Immaculately clean linen and comfortable beds. The hosts had also kindly left books, board games and DVDs for the whole family preemptive of the changeable Lakeland weather. We will definitely book again with Sykes Cottages. Very highly recommended. Thank you

  • "We had a lovely time in St Peters cottage and will definitely return."

    Just a slight negative but one of the sofa’s is very low and after sitting on a while it be becomes uncomfortable due to how low it is. Everything else is just perfect

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return again soon. The sofas are relatively new so we hadn't realised that the feet were missing until recently. We have now fitted new feet to both sofas so the issue is now rectified. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Property Owner

  • "A very comfortable stay at St Peter's Cottage, with all mod cons."

    Large bedrooms and large lounge and kitchen. We enjoyed our break although our stay was for a family funeral at Levens church. Luckily the sun shone on the day with magnificent views across the valley. The cottage also has beautiful views from the bedrooms. I enjoyed the church bells chiming at nearby St Peter's church on the Sunday morning. Levens Hall nearby was handy for breakfast and the deer park which my grandson enjoyed too. I would recommend this comfortable cottage to anyone holidaying in the Lake District. The town of Milnthorpe close by too for any extras one might need.

  • "The Cottage was an ideal place for us to stay for our week in the Lake District."

    The accommodation was very clean and also comfortable, with good sized bedrooms. Took a little while to understand the induction hob, but then we got the hang of it. It was a very quite area, which suited us, and the only drawback that comes to mind was that there was only 1 parking space, as we had travelled in 2 cars. I would certainly recommend the Cottage to anyone wishing to stay in the Lake District as it is very convenient for so many places that you can visit.

  • "There was no iron or ironing board which we’ve had at every self catering property so far."

    Owner or Sykes couldn’t/wouldn’t help and we had to use creased clothes after washing mid week of our holiday. Also toilet seats were poorly fitted and loose and a few of the internal room doors were hard to close/open. Also access to the car park has limited height if you use a roof box for example. Website should state that. Would appreciate a refund gesture fir our inconvenience with the clothing.

    Thank you for your feedback and we hope you enjoyed your stay. As per our previous correspondence, there is now an iron and ironing board in place as promised and I apologies for the inconvenience. I have noted your point regarding height, however a regular sized vehicle with roof box can fit under the archway but dimensions will be added to the website for clarity. The property had had a full and extensive refurbishment which includes new, high quality carpets hence the slight door issue due to the thickness of the pile. We will look to improve this but would note that all doors do close properly. As regards any general maintenance or snagging, this will be attended to on a regular basis. Property Owner

Situated in the small hamlet of Heversham, Cumbria, is this superb cottage, St. Peters Cottage.

Once the former village pub, this delightful cottage is set over two floors and sleeps up to six guests.

St. Peters Cottage is the perfect dwelling for an escape to the countryside with friends or family, residing just a short drive away from the famous Lake Windemere, home to a variety of water sports, and easy access to the Yorkshire Dales for daytrips and scenic walks .

Upon your arrival, you will find a convenient off-road parking space for one car at the rear of the property, before being welcomed into the cottage to begin your holiday.

Cosy up in the spacious open-plan living/dining room where you can snuggle up and enjoy a film on the Smart TV in front of the warming coal-effect fireplace.

Rustle up a home-cooked meal for the family in the well-equipped kitchen to enjoy around the dining table whilst catching up with loved ones and toasting to a fantastic holiday.

Climb the stairs when sleep calls and retire to one of three bedrooms, the first being a homely master double bedroom, featuring warm, comforting décor.

On this floor, you will also find a second double bedroom and a twin room, ideal for children to slumber in, along with a bathroom where you can enjoy a soothing soak in the bath and unwind after a day of exploring.

Enjoy a morning coffee or alfresco lunch out on the patio area, perfect for soaking up the sunshine whilst your canine companion stretches their legs.

Conveniently located between Kendal and Carnforth and just a short drive from the seaside village of Arnside is the charming, medieval market town of Milnthorpe which is the ideal tourist base for those wanting to explore all Cumbria has to offer.

Visitors can enjoy the town’s history through its original architecture and narrow lanes which weave throughout the town.

Enjoy the delights of the local shops, restaurants and pubs and treat yourself to a delicious meal or glass of your favourite tipple before continuing your exploring.

Head towards the South of Milnthorpe and enjoy a fun-filled day at the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis which is home to over 100 species of animals, a butterfly house, tropical halls, an on-site café or a beautiful picnic area where you can bring your own treats.

Famous for being the largest natural lake in England, Lake Windermere is within easy reach of the property and offers boat tours and watersport activities, while the surrounding town provides plenty of pubs and eateries to fuel your excursions, venturing further afield, why not spend a day wandering the peaks and valleys of the glorious Yorkshire Dales National Park?

About the location


Arnside 3 miles; Silverdale 6 miles; Kendal 7 miles.

Milnthorpe, once an important medieval market town, is located in the South Lakes between Kendal and Carnforth, just a few miles from the seaside village of Arnside. Reminders of the town's history can still be found today amongst the narrow lanes and historic buildings, which speak of a time when a coach and four was more common than a four-wheel drive. Set in lovely rolling countryside, the area has much to offer, with the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis offering a tropical hall and butterfly house. Dallam Tower and Levens Hall (historic and beautiful stately homes with their deer parks, topiary and ornamental gardens) provide a great day out for visitors. Leighton Hall, Sizergh Castle, the Great Lakes Aquarium, Windermere and Grizedale Forest are also all within easy reach and well worth a visit. From stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks to beaches and scenic coastal paths, there really is something for everyone.
