  • "Our stay at Winder Green was a last minute arrangement, due to our booking at a different property being cancelled less than 24 hours before arrival."

    Sykes offered us Winder Green based on the location of our previous property and party size (including a dog). Despite our initial disappointment at the last minute change, we had a fantastic Easter weekend at Winder Green. Ged and Julie went above and beyond to turn the property around for our stay and we really appreciated them reaching out to us directly to welcome us, with additional resources to enhance our stay. The children (& grown ups) were very touched to be greeted with an Easter egg for each child. The property was warm, clean and comfortable. We only gave a 4 for comfort due to the smaller double bed. The kitchen was well equipped and we were treated to a lovely box of biscuits, milk and tea/coffee provisions. What was really special about our stay was the views and the immediate surroundings. The children loved watching the red squirrels, pheasants and rabbits and you could easily loose a few hours peacefully enjoying the outdoor sitting area. You truly feel like you’re miles from anywhere and the absence of light pollution too made it a great location for star gazing. We spent time adventuring on the fells and the proximity to Pooley Bridge made walks accessible. The steamer was a highlight for the kids. The laundry and boot room were very much welcomed. We would definitely return - there is so much more to explore in the area.

    Thank you Helen for such a kind review, we are so glad you had a great time both indoors and out exploring whilst staying in Winder Green. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future to carry on exploring. Property Owner
