"This is our second time staying at this lovely apartment."
It is spacious and very comfortable and has all you need for a great stay. It is in a beautiful setting looking across towards Morecambe Bay. Kents Bank station is right opposite the property, and we used the train to travel around as there are lots of lovely places to visit within easy reach. We intend to return next year.
Comfy beds and settee. Scrupulously clean. Friendly and knowledgeable neighbour Hazel. Owners kind and accommodating .
"An ideal location."
"Thought 5 pm arrival and 9am departure a little bit overkill despite the Covid restrictions etc thought 10am and 4 pm would have been more appropriate, or even 3pm."
Very disappointing on leaving day to have man knocking impatiently on the door at precisely 9am requesting us to move out! Even on saying we need 5/10 minutes he pointed to his watch and said, rather rudely '9am you should be out' We said dishwasher had not yet finished but that was met with 'I'll do it' we then said we need to put keys away but again it was 'I'll do it'
His attitude was appalling so it was a tad disappointing to a very good week!
Thank you for your feedback. We do have to be sure there is plenty of time for a thorough clean between stays which of course can also depend on how the property is left by the previous guests. The gentleman who arrived from the property management company is well known to the owner and is always polite and courteous so we have never experienced any issues such as yours before. He has explained he was just willing to finish things off so that you did not have to but we are sorry if you were offended at all and would certainly not wish to cause any upset. We are very pleased you had a good stay otherwise. Property Owner
"Beautiful apartment, very well equipped, very comfortable and a great location."
Enjoyed every minute of our stay here. It was so quiet and peaceful and set in beautiful gardens. We went out every day to different places and even discovered a wonderful nature reserve. Would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend.
"Had a fantastic stay in this lovely home from home."
It's in a great location, just a short trip from Grange over Sands, convenient by both car and train with the station just across the road. The accommodation was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The hygiene welcome pack and a lovely bottle of Prosecco were most welcome. On top of everything else we had fantastic weather too. We hope to return to this lovely place.
"Lovely apartment ."
Everything needed was to hand .We liked the quiet location .
"Spacious accommodation which has everything that you need ,
A welcome pack includes antibacterial products and dishwasher tablet to get you started."
Everything is spotlessly clean and COVID safe. The property is in lovely gardens with your private seating area with lovely views. The flat is spacious enough for six adults as well as family with children. We have visited several times and is a favourite of ours and hope to return soon.
"\Wonderful quiet well-equipped apartment."
Ideal location just outside Grange-Over-Sands, and with a train station close by. Walks across the flats of Morecambe Bay convenient across the road. Very happy with the property, and would rebook for a future stay.
"Both WC’s require attention unless you push the handle right up water continues to run."
Our enjoyment was marred by the unfounded accusation that we had damaged the property when in fact due to the meticulous cleaning and care instructions given before arrival we were quite nervous in case of accidents. The white coffee table looked as if coffee had been spilt on the leg not cleaned off which made us laugh. We had not visited the are before and were pleasantly surprised also the train was useful.
"Everything about our stay was excellent, great accommodation, great location and great weather."
"Great base to explore the South Lakes."
"Fantastic base to explore not only the lakes but Yorkshire and Lancashire."
Apartment was ideal, spacious and all mod cons. To be honest I couldn't find fault. Owner was very helpful, even phoned to tell us we could gain access earlier than scheduled and was so apologetic about the one small task of putting the bin out at end of drive, which was no hardship. Thoroughly recommend.
"A well appointed and equipped apartment."
Very comfortable and maintained to a very high standard. A great base for 'The Lakes'.
"Beautiful apartment, really spacious and very comfortable."
Situated opposite Kent's Bank train station which is handy for travelling up the coast. There is no noise from the train station which was our worry. Stunning views across Morecambe Sands and even when the weather is rubbish it is lovely to watch the changing scenery. The area is very steep in places for walking locally but along the promenade it is a lovely walk and would be ideal for bikes.
There are plenty of places to visit close by but returning home at the end of the day is perfect with everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday.
"It’s a great place."
Slightly tricky to find and perhaps a bit more of an info pack at the property would help.
However, it was a great place.
Disappointed with Sykes as Booked through Quidco cashback was confirmed and then cancelled so will stick to other sites in the future.
"None that I can think of - the description and photographs of the apartment were very accurate."
It was a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay. We hope to visit again. Thank you.
"Was a joy to have everything so perfect."
Cannot complain about a single thing.
Very conveniently situated for touring the area.
"This was our 2nd visit to this property this year."
We used the £40 voucher you sent us for a second booking. Thank you.
"Had a great time - clean, spacious, and well equipped apartment in a location which was quiet, pleasant and well placed for getting out and about in the local area and further afield."
"VERY QUIET AND PEACEFUL SPOT,FRIENDLY NEIGHBOURS,HEALTHY WALKS FROM THE APARTMENT, TRAIN IF REQUIRED,GOOD RANGE OF SHOPS IN GRANGE AND EXCELLENT IN KENDAL!"
,PLENTY OF INTERESTING PLACES TO VISIT SUCH AS CONISHEAD PRIORY-MUNCASTER CASTLE AND OLD RATTY RAILWAY,HOLEHIRD GARDENS ARE A GEM! IF YOU FEEL EXTRA ENERGETIC, TRY THE CROSS BAY WALK FROM ARNSIDE TO KENT'S BANK.
Quiet backwater. Right opposite except rain link.
"This was a bit of last minute booking but the booking was efficient and communication was instant."
The apartment was as described and in a lovely location. I wouldn't hesitate in booking another holiday let with Sykes Cottages.
The apartment itself was in a quiet location but in good proximity to plenty of attractions. Kents Bank Station directly opposite so good if you want to travel by train . Everything in the apartment was clean and well equipped. We would use this apartment again .
"Kent’s Banks house was well equipped, well furnished and more spacious than we had expected with very friendly and welcoming neighbours set in well maintained gardens."
The only comment which let it down was the lack of sufficient toilet paper and the lack of any sort of welcome pack which for a place of that price, quality and standard would be a nice gesture and easily resolved. Toilet paper and hand soap should be a must.
"Very nice place, definitely worth the money, very quiet and lovely."
the reason why just 4* was the missing things, e.g. toilet paper, soap, (coffee or tea for some people as well)
"Stayed at 8 Kents Bank House for 4 nights with my family and family pet."
Firstly, the accommodation was not a disappointment, it was well equipped and I could not fault the cleanliness of the property.
The location is also a bonus as it looks over Morecombe Bay and is right next to Kents Bank train station that allows you to travel to the centre of Grange Over Sands or Cark. This came in very handy when me and my father-in-law went to watch football at the Keg and Kitchen and struggled to find a taxi after the match.
Another bonus is that you are only a short car journey to Lakeside and then the rest of Windermere.
If you are booking 8 Kents Bank House, I would highly recommend a trip to The Pheasant Inn Allithwaite Rd, Allithwaite, Grange-over-Sands LA11 7RQ, the food and service was excellent and on our 4 day stay over we went twice.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay at 8 Kents Bank House and I would highly recommend this accommodation to any of my friends and family and I am sure we will return in the near future.
"The apartment is within walking distance of the Kents Bank railway station, the kids loved the short train ride into Grange over Sands followed by brunch at Hazelmere."
Levens Hall had amazing gardens, a great cafe and superb ale.
The Hare and Hound pub in Levens had my daughter claim it was one of the best Pizzas she had eaten.
The apartment was beautiful, well equipped and comfortable.
We will definitely book again in the future.
"A wonderful apartment, with everything that you need for a really enjoyable stay."
Situated in an ideal location for sightseeing and many family attractions.
"A really beautiful appartment,great views and so handy for the train just across the road."
There was everything that you would have needed in the appartment and the beds super comfy.If you arrive in the evening you need basic supply with you as there are no shops nearby.Will be going back again it was just home from home.
"Lovely weekend away, room spotlessly clean."
Fabulous location. Would recommend Skye’s Cottages, as the App is very helpful.
"It is hard to capture how pleasant the accommodation is over the Internet."
The property does not feel like a 'holiday let'. It feels more like a much-loved home that the owner welcomes visitors to stay in while they are away! We even had a visit from a friendly neighbour; happy to tell us about some good places to go to with our dog. Made for a very special Christmas break.
"Been to this accommodation before and it's excellent and the location is very convenient to see the south Lakes"
"A truly fabulous apartment with everything you need for a relaxing holiday."
Everything has been so well planned with comfortable furniture and beds.
We found the apartment spotlessly clean. We took our dog with us and floors are tiled in kitchen and dining area so were suitable as well as stylish.
Parking for two cars is great as many places do not have that facility. The apartment has beautiful grounds to use with views over the sea. Grange over sand is a delightful place to stay with easy access to Windermere. Our stay was just perfect.
"Really excellent accommodation."
New, spotlessly clean, spacious and very well equipped to cater for 6 people easily.
Ideally placed for the tiny little railway station, literally a 2min walk away :)
"This is the first time I have booked with Sykes and so was a little anxious that property would be satisfactory."
I needn’t have worried because it was beautiful and we were delighted with it. Thanks for a wonderful short break
Really well equipped. All the attractions were pretty close. Beautiful walks nearby. Amenities like Tesco and co op in 1.2 miles. Really helpful neighbours. Beautiful large grassy marshy area for dog to run about and swim just across the road. We didn’t used the train but it links with all the main stations if someone likes to visit by train .
"Fabulous views, every appliance you could wish for, spotless clean and so comfortable."
The neighbours were friendly and informative. 5 stars
"8 kents bank was very clean and spacious really lovely decor and we'll equipped the location was good and quiet i would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and would definitely stay there again."
"The only small concern was confusion over the collection of the rubbish."
The bin was already full when we arrived from the previous occupants, and we missed the collection over confusion of date.
This did not spoil a very pleasant stay in a well equipped apartment, but would need looking at to avoid unessesary visitors !!
"Beautiful apartment, lovely décor, extremely clean, facilities were fantastic, would definitely visit again."
"Beautifully clean, comfortable and well equipped."
Would love to return at some point.
Great communication with owner.
